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 …

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 …

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

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 …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Hello everyone,

Had a great idea from one of our members...to create a forum where we can all just have a good rant!!

Yes there will be strong language so if you are a little sensitive just say the word 'bleep' when you come across anything colourful Laughing

So let it out..........

Things that have fucked me off so far today... hell should we start with a whole weeks recap or just today?

I work with a bunch of twits who think life is a bit like high school. It's just a temporary contract but I could slap at least two of them (the same two) most days. I should mention about now that I've just had a two wine lunch after not having eaten or slept for 3 days/2 nights. This is because I also have CD and got glutened while celebrating my 20th wedding anniversary. I'm trying not to take that as an omen.

So during these sleepness nights I was able to focus on how hard it is to get comfortable with the other joy in my life. In theory I can only sleep on my back because any other position puts pressure on my girl bits.

I went off my medication as it wasn't adding anything to an already shitty situtation. Then when I got sick I couldn't figure out if that was because of something I had eaten or if it was the withdrawal from the mind altering substances. I phoned my Drs surgery thinking I would get some "advice" I subsequently got bitch slapped by 3 different nurses for being so foolish. Yeah, yeah I've had therapy and have done some psych papers I know they can't make me feel anything.. but I found I stuttered and stammered while feeling foolish and trying to justify myself.

My therapist is the only one who "really" listens to me and I have to pay her. I'm looking forward to our appointment next week, way too much. I avoid most of my friends and all of my family.

Ok so that's the gripe over. The things I am grateful for today are: I just had lunch with a lovely friend. I have another one coming to stay on Sunday night (oldest and dearest, I've REALLY been avoiding her). It's sunny and the fucken birds are singing... I wish they would fuck right off.

hahahaaaaaaa! that made me laugh! fuckin birds indeed - waste of space the lot of em Smile

Urrghhhhhhhh! seriously I wouldn't listen to those nurses, mind you in the UK the doctors are just as useless. If your arm isnt dropping off, you havent got an ingrown toe nail, giving up smoking or you arent overweight than there is feck all they can do for you. And when they do treat you they just give you a px for antibiotics. Then tell you to come back next week....you get to reception and the doctor is fully booked until the month after. Pretty ridiculous and getting worse all the time. Oh, I meant to say "pretty fucking twating ridiculous and getting bloody well worse all the fucking time" Smile dammmit I cant swear when Im allowed too Smile

Anyway, you know ur body more than any doctor, they had me on amitriptline (sp?) for months when I first went to seek help and then they tried gabapentin and I came off them. There was no use, I kept telling the consultant that mine is raw, inflammed skin, not nerve pain etc.

One thing that pissed me off today - one of my closest mates ringing and harping on about her s*x life, she hadnt had s*x (I have banned myself saying that word as im a forced celibute nun) for 2 months. OHHHH MYYYYY GODDDDDDDD, did I see red?!!! I replied with a "oh thanks for that, you try 2+ years and counting" urrrrggggghhhhhh how fucking thoughtless. Its not like Ive kept it all to myself. I tell everyone I know for that very reason - it really depresses me (if thats more possible) to hear about them swinging off the fecking chandeliers. Grrrrrrr.

one thing that I was grateful for today (note how im sticking to your format there Mouse Very Happy ) = my mum giving me a massive hug today. seeing Simon Pegg on the telly - hes so lush Smile

hahaha u know the only person (bar my parents) who listens to me is mt therapist! - and yes, I have to pay her too Smile

Arghhhhhhh Ive just remembered another thing that pissed me off today - A FUCKING MAN!!!! well meant to be a close friend. He'd text/email most days to see how I am. As soon as he gets a friggin lady friend hes off like a Jack Rabbit and I hear sweet feck all - MEN!! well actually I know a few women like it too. Then they usually break up and come back with their tail between their legs and all over u like a rash (not literally, you know what I mean). So yes im feeling pretty used so I gave him the fingers up - well I did it to my phone anyway. Huuhhhhhhh.

Rant rant rah rahhhhhhh rant over and now Ive got that off my chest im off to bed to read Smile

Wwwooohooooo that was a fab rant Naomi! In fact that would have been an A+ but could you see me after class about the use of expletives - NOT NEARLY enough!

I have to watch my friends have oral sex soon, I'm not that keen. Every Sunday we have coffee at a friends house, it's usually a large group and before long they all start oohing and aahing and stuffing their faces - with cake! Eating is not a spectator sport but because cake is a banned substance I get to grit my teeth and watch the assholes enjoying themselves a wee bit too much. Owww that's a lovely slice Alison! Ohhh my goodness Helen what have you used in this icing - it's divine! Their neighbours own a cafe so Lou brings croissants and other shizzer. I hate them/love them! I'm hoping Amanda doesn't turn up today with some fucken bready dipping thing. I had the "I'm so sorry you have CD" nano second last year now it's an orgy of cakes and I could give two flying fat fucks that you can't join in. I'm sure I would find church less annoying - hmmm maybe not, it's hard to find a GF communion wafer and I wldn't be able to drink the wine after a gluten gobbler had backwashed in it.

Things I'm grateful for today - SFA!!! I'm a bit depressed now. If Mum had bothered to acknowledge the birthday of her last born I'd get on over there for a hug. I might have to pop over and see your Mum Naomi Very Happy

good lordy i nearly spat out my camomile tea when I read about u watching ur mates having oral!!!...then a read on Smile

Have you got Costa Coffee in NZ? (bit like starbucks) If so get yourself down there and stock up on the gluten free choco brownies, they have them on the counter by the till. OMG they are fucking ammmmaaazinggggg!! I didnt need to swear then Im just getting carried away with the words and using them willy nilly Very Happy

Can u eat gluten free cake or is there any other ingredients u can tolerate? I bet uve got a lush figure though! so thats one plus! Mind you thats like saying "ohhhhh you cant have s*x?....nevermind, on the plus side at least you wont get any STI's Very Happy FUCK OFF!

Sorry uve had a cack day, sucks. Ive had one of those weeks - cry, generally feel sorry for myself, stress out, cry more, stay in bed til late afternoon (today was 4pm), watch tv, dinner, read til early hours, bed. Repeat that 7 times and Im back to last sat Mad Ive made an effort though today and booked some tickets to go to the cinema tomorrow with my folks. Its that 3D film thats about owls and its an animation. Dont ask me what its called as i havent the foggiest. Its at an IMAX theatre so no doubt my dad will end up with motion sickness and have to give up and wait at a coffee shop! bless him.

So at least theres that to look forward to. I was meant to be going to see a comedian tonight but had to give my tickets away, was in such as state yday morning i didnt think id be up to going. So had to send the tickets down to my brother Sad rubbish. And the fucker hasnt even said thanks...typical of him as I wouldnt expect anything less!

your mum didnt wish u happy bday last month?? get on her case missus!!! I would, mine wouldnt hear the last of it! It would ever happen though as I harp on about mine about 3 months previous. Actually, its about time I started Smile

bed for me then now as its stupidly late yet again, my sleeping patterns so out of sync now its not surprising i stay in bed so late!

I'm working on becoming sensible and trying not to become isolated as well. It's a work in progress. As for the birthday, it's called the birthday month in my house. I've found any birthday that has a zero on it can spin out for 2 months. I've lost the joy for them though and even declined parcels from the husband - he's very nervous.

We have Starbucks (we're not animals) but not Costas. Cake has become more precious to me than the tears of baby unicorns - which surprisingly I can eat... it's not that I want it, it's just no fun watching other people drool over it.

I hope the movie was good and you remembered a sick bag for your Dad. Your brother may need the same pep talk I'm going to give my Mother Evil or Very Mad
