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 …

Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Positive result for strep b

Post  Sunflower82 on Thu Feb 27, 2014 7:24 am

Hi,
I am wondering if anyone has had a positive test for strep b? I had an increase in external itching and thought I had thrush when I when to see the nurse it to me ages to convience her to do a swab, as I was told to take treatment for thursh. I have had 5 courses of antibotics in the last 6-8 months so wanted to check it out before I took anything. Just before this happened I starting taking bio kult candida as I had had taken so many antibotics for a infection I had in my toe, after taking then for three weeks I noticed I had so much more energy and wasn't as tired but then the itching started.

The test was positive for strep b and the dr asked if I was pregnant, I'm not but we are trying so I have another course of antibotics.

The problem I have is could this be what as caused some if my v symptoms ? I have tried to look up the symptoms of step b but can only find info relating to pregnancy.

Does anyone know what the symptoms are ? Could the burning and itching sensation I have be strep b and not vulvodynia ?


Thanks

Kt

strep b

Post  lavrose on Thu Mar 27, 2014 1:47 pm

I have strp b and had it since I lost my virginity. I often wonder if that why Ive had so many problems, basically starting from the time I lost my virginity. But I guess 40% of women have it, and they seem to be able to atleast have sex most of them, so I dunno..
