From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Boric acid has made me feel even better, almost healed

Boric acid has made me feel even better, almost healed

Post  lavrose on Wed Jan 08, 2014 2:51 pm

As you guys no, Ive been on here a long time, posting about my various herbal and essential oil (mad scientist vaginal concoction suppository adventures) burning myself , causing shedding skin, NOT RECOMMENDED, but hey, I was trying and fighting the good fight...Oils did not work to CURE the infection, and even when I thought they were making me feel better, eventually, they stopped working, and I felt the "Burning Bush" feeling, sensation come back full force, made worse by the oils.
A marriage and a divorce, etc, Ive been using Boric acid everyday sometimes twice a day (gave up on the oils) and while the Boric Acid is in..I feel 100% normal down there, and can have sex sometimes (painlessly, and pleasurable, but its messy, as Boric Acid creates an embarrassing watery discharge) Just tell him your a squirter Smile) LOL!!.. nah just joking..anyay..it sux, but if I miss a day of it, the uncomfortable feeling comes back..so ive been doing Boric acid capsules inserted in the vagina exclusively, and a better diet, ofcourse) with supplements for about 5 months now, and every month I seem to feel better, and better, more normal, my period cycle also feels better, and I do the suppositories at night, even while Im menstruating.
Im hoping one day ill eventually cure) but that's ALOT to ask, im just glad I can have these momentary moments of pleasure and normalness.

Recently, in the last month or so, Ive been trying a product called "Yeast Arrest" by Vitanica, vaginal suppositories, ..with Homeopathic herbs, and borax, and I feel even better.
One women on the website VaginaPagina said she was on Boric Acid for a YEAR and eventually cured, so who knows. Hoping for the best.

Post  lavrose on Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:01 pm

but like I said..I cant go a DAY without these treatments, or it feels like HELL down there again..so..as long as its in there..I feel NORMAL..but give it a day or two and the feeling comes sneaking back, gradually..

The yeast arrest on the other hand, has made me feel, I can go almost 2 days without medicine up in there and still feel alright..so like I said..a year or two of this, and maybe one day, I will be cured.

Also, please use Carlsons Vitamin E suppositories along with the Boric acid, as it can be terribly drying.

Also, sex can be difficult as (altho it feels great) your man knows something is up 9in there) as its either slippery, or overly wet, and dry too, as Boric acid can be drying(use lube)

its Hell, and I feel like half a women, and its embarrassing..but what can I do??

That's really interesting! It's an idea I've been toying with for a while but haven't given it a go yet. Dyou know what it actually is in the boric acid that takes the pain away? And are there any side effects except the dryness and watery discharge?

if you feel better with boric acid that means that you have chronic yeast infection right? I am asking because the results of my biopsy came out, and it shows only inflammation. Therefore, boric acid it's not for me.

I think boric acid lowers PH too. I sometimes wonder if my pain isn't from high ph levels. My ph is always above 6

Boric acid is bacteriostatic and fungistatic. Bactericidal agents kill bacteria directly, and bacteriostatic agents stop bacteria from growing. Fungistatic agents inhibit growth, whereas fungicidal kills fungal pathogens.

Bacteriostatic and fungistatic agents work by allowing our own immune system to take control of the infection (it gives us a chance to not be so outnumbered). Don't let this freak you out though because a lot of antibiotics are bacteriostatic...we just aren't told how the drugs we take work. There are a lot of ways doctors believe boric acid helps with BV or yeast infections, including its potential biofilm removal ability.

I used boric acid 600mg suppositories once a day before bed. At first my doctor had them compounded in a fattibase through a pharmacy, but I found that just inserting a regular capsule of boric acid was less irritating and dissolved fine. I did not make my own like some people suggest. I just ordered pre-made ones online.

They absolutely cured whatever infection I had that was causing constant internal burning and prickling at my urethra (as well as a horrible poking pain I got with every period). I used it once a day for 14 days (Naturopath wanted me to do it for 30 days), then twice a week in between periods, and every day of my period for 3 months.

However, I want to strongly caution you when using boric acid because I am now left with an extremely bad case of noninfectious inflammatory vaginitis (i.e. inflammation of the vagina not caused by an infection). I'm not saying boric acid alone did this to me, but I do believe it caused my vagina to be more inflamed. I do not regret using it to relieve the infection, but I do regret using it as long as my Naturopath recommended. If pH is your concern, there are a lot of other more gentle methods to help restore a healthy acidic pH.
