New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

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 …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Valium suppository.

Valium suppository.

Post  Meowlowxo on Thu Feb 20, 2014 6:47 pm

Hi everyone,
I have been dealing with this emotionally and psychically painful disease for about 9 years. My biggest issue is sexual activity. Daily activities, like wearing pants or sitting, don't seem to bother me. While I am sensitive on the outside, most of my pain  is excruciating pain, and it is on the inside. I recently saw a doctor who has been rated at top of the line, she suggested Valium suppositories. I'm a bit hesitant about this solution, or lack of solution. Has any one had experiences with Valium suppositories? Positive or negative, I wouldn't mind hearing either side. I don't object them, and I would  try them if they help this awful pain, I would just like to hear if anybody has their own story involving them.

Thanks so much,
Sarah

Hi! I'm using suppositories pretty regularly now to help me progress through the dilators. It helps me a lot with muscle tightness and spasms, but never helped in the past with any of the nerve pain. I've never tried putting them in before sex though, theoretically it might help! There is no harm in trying.

My doctor suggested using them for pain so I tried them. They helped but it was only short-term (meaning for an hour or two), and the time that they worked for decreased dramatically in a short period of time (within several weeks they did not work for very long any more--maybe 30 minutes). And the relief was not enough for intercourse.

If I used them for several days in a row I would have slight bleeding from them, nothing major but I did need to wear a liner. I'm not sure if this occurs for everyone but it was irritating for me because the liners caused burning (counter-intuitive!)

My pain is muscular and nerve pain. I will tell you that for times when I had muscular pain during the night that was keeping me awake and I would use one it was helpful to relieve the spasms and help me to sleep. Hope my experience helps with your decision.

I just started them on Friday. My PT suggested them and so I got the prescription from my doctor. I only have pain with penetration, so I'm not sure if they're working. I am also having discharge--thank you for clearing that one up. I was afraid something was wrong. I don't know if I'm going to refill my prescription on them. I got enough for twenty days and unfortunately you have to use them quickly or else they expire.

why would valium expire anytime than after a year? That's not true in the least. They are like any other drug.

It's a compounded medication built into a suppository that looks like earplugs, so it's very different from the regular pills that are more shelf-stable, so yes it is true. I think I'm going to stop them once they're gone though. I don't think they're helping and I keep having light bleeding throughout the day even though I'm only using them at night.
