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 …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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 …

Male visitor

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

Hi , well I have only tried it twice ! But so far it hasn't done mych for the V lol !!! The pain in my legs and shouldures due to tensing it has helped thowe, no the needles vary but none on the V. My wrist, feet inner ankle , near my knew my leg ammm elbow area too ??? She talks a lot L and numbers muttering ? She also found my sacrum to be very tensed as she checks spine body movements , breathing she did find trigger points on upper thigh ect which she released. But she says I'm not breathing properly I breath into my chest which is then not letting my stomach relax and more than likely having my pelvic floor tense too ??? ATM my pain is pretty bad last two days very unfortunate as I see my boyfriend on Monday as he is home from university and I'm in such bad pain :/ it's so unfair ! I am considering just trying natural things but tonight the meds are looking more and more as a relief I think ! Mine is unprovoked but around the baginal opening does seen to be the rawest burning. I do think my tight pelvic floor muscles are contributing mind you Sad xxx

Needles in your V?!! Definitely not lol! I thought that might be the case when i went for acupuncture but for anyone thinking of doing it, don't worry - no needles in the the V! The nearest mine got was just above my pubic bone.

Sounds like your acupuncturist has given you a thorough assessment Zbrown (ignore my question in an earlier post of yours that I replied to - you've answered it here!). And tense muscles can definitely cause pain (primary and referred) so its great that the acupuncture helped with the trigger points she identified. But it's hard to say how many sessions before/if you get some pain relief from your vvd, it's very individual. I felt most benefit a few hours after each session but it didn't last long and I went back regularly in the beginning. If you can afford it and you are getting benefit from releasing trigger points I would say keep going. If tight pelvic floor muscles or sacrum are your problem then you'll probably also need physio/chiro to sort them out - acupuncture will only do so much I think.

Btw the Heal Pelvic Pain book has some guidance on deep abdominal breathing - definitely try that too to help release tension, it really works. Hope your pain eases so you can enjoy your time with your boyfriend!

Thanks loulou, I have so far purchased when sex hurts book it was a interesting read ! I may get that one u suggested this condition is so draining ! I am a hairdresser and it starting to take it's tole. I may go to a chiropractor very soon and hopefully it will help I am not on any medication ATM but I'm not sure if I should just ale it as my gynocologist says that's what she will start me on if I go back but that's not going to cure pelvic floor muscles is it :/ I do feel quite alone in this situation no one understands how much I just want to be myself again xxx
