Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico


I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Need advice on treatments/cures

Post  young.sufferer on Thu Dec 05, 2013 2:29 am

Hello! I am new to this site, I am 25 and was diagnosed with Vulvodynia about a year ago. I've only done the lidocaine treatment and I hate it. It's messy and I forget to apply it twice a day. I have never been able to have pain-free sex or orgasm with a man and it is seriously affecting my life. My last boyfriend and I couldn't have sex because I would cry. I haven't had a boyfriend or a successful sexual partner since. I have internal burning that isn't excruciating, but it's enough to make me not enjoy sex. It has seriously affected my relationships, and I consistently turn away from men I care about because I am too scared to let them get close. I also have pain because I'm really tight (sorry for the information!) and I do have trouble getting wet (eek! sorry again!) so sex is just brutal for me in so many ways. I really want to cure this and I refuse to accept the notion that I just have to live with it for the rest of my life. I am going to make a chiropractor appointment and see about acupuncture, does anyone else have any tips or supportive comments? It's so hard to not feel alone even though I know there are so many of us out there! This is the first time I've reached out so hopefully we can all help each other through this horrible battle!

Thanks in advice for all the help and comments Smile

Awww dont worry not all men are like that but I felt the same. My boyfriend came to my appointment with me yesterday (tho it was for an infection not v) but after I freaked he reassured me and said "its just sex calm down". And we'll work thru it together..my point being not all men are idiots. Have you considered physical therapy to work on your muscles (tightness) and try some good lube-astroglide is my favorite. Hope I may have helped a little bit... where are you from?

That's so great that you have a supportive boyfriend Smile I know there are sweet guys out there, it's just so hard to figure out how to bring it up. I haven't considered physical therapy but it is definitely something I would look into. I'm from Canada! It's cold! Razz I have tried lubes before but I feel like a lot of them just dry me out more. My doctor recommended Replens but that didn't work for me, although I may try it again. I will try out the Astroglide and see how it works Smile Thank you so much, it feels good to just talk about everything!

I feel ya

I'm in a similar situation. I have a lot of burning during sex, not to the point where it is unbearable or excruciating, but enough so that it is not enjoyable and actually a pretty bad experience. I've tried the numbing cream too without success. Some other treatments i've tried have been PT (which isn't as useful for the burning pain, more useful for people who's defensive muscle contractions cause their pain or inability to have sex), Lyrica (anticonvulsant used for nerve pain), and other topical creams (estrogen testosterone creams). None of those worked for me so now i'm getting a vulvar vestibulectomy and really hopeful that it will be the cure I am looking for. Feel free to message me if you want any more info on some of these other treatments!

Hey babe, you aren't ever alone believe me! We are all here for you. I also have the internal burning which randomly worsens. If it's at its lowest sex is possible and borders on good, if it's like high I would not let anything near me down there!
