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 …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

He said this is …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Low oxalate diet & antihistamine

Post  907hopeful on Thu Jan 30, 2014 7:28 am

Has anyone had success with a low oxalate diet? I think this might be part of my problem as I have had a little bit of success w/ vitamin b6 reducing my burning pain. I don't have much time to write tonight but wanted to see if there was anyone on here who could share more?

I have also been taking Zyrtec which is an antihistamine normally used for allergies. I think it's been keeping things at a dull burning level (vs painful), but I am too nervous to stop them to see what I would be like without them! Anyone successfully using an antihistamine?

If an antihistamine is causing you to feel better you probably have an allergy to some thing. So eliminate stuff that comes in contact with your vagina...

Allergic reaction

Post  907hopeful on Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:13 am

My story is long, but here is the gist of it...My problems started with what we thought was a yeast infection, but the swelling and inflammation would not go away. I was given a antifungal cream that I had an allergic reaction to. I got the initial reaction from the cream calmed down and the swelling finally went away, but I have been left with a raw/irritated/hypersensitive spot around one of my bartholins gland. I had a biopsy a couple weeks ago and was told I had a cyst on the gland (it was removed). The area of skin where the cyst was removed no longer hurts, but I still have inflammation all around it and sometimes in the opening (1st inch) if my vagina. The Zyrtec seems to help the vaginal inflammation but not the inflammation around the gland area. Dr thinks since there are no noticeable causes of my remaining inflammation (that she has found) that my nerves are continuing to fire even though the infection is cleared up causing my body to produce an inflammatory response (producing histamines).

She has prescribed me a compounded cream (lidocaine & gabapentin) but I am still waiting to get it. The thought is the gabapentin will reduce the nerve response and stop the inflammation cycle. I am not sure I am totally bought into that theory. I am looking into the low oxalate diet and Dr Solomans Pain Project protocol. Google it - it's a pretty interesting theory! I have definitely noticed a correlation between what I eat and my pain level (tomato products and alcohol are completely off the table). I have been taking b6 and calcium citrate which help remove oxalates from your urine. The calcium didn't make much difference in my pain level (burning) but b6  makes a noticeable difference.  I am taking it 2-3 times a day.
