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.

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 …

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 …

Feeling like my life is out of control.....

Post  hondachick96 on Mon Apr 07, 2014 11:10 pm

I will make this as brief as I can....last June I started experiencing symptoms of a yeast infection. I can usually tell if I have one as I have dealt with them my entire life. So, I took some Flagyl and Diflucan (sp). That wasn't working so, I decided to go to the GYN. She said that she didn't see anything under the microscope and said that she would prescribe me some more medication. That still didn't work. I found it uncomfortable to sit, ride a bike, have sex and sometimes run/stand/walk. I was miserable. I went back to the doctor and she did an STD test. Came back negative. So, she told me that she thinks she I suffer from Vulvadynia. She prescribed me  10 mg Antitripline. It made me soooo tired and I felt sluggish and more tired the next morning so I stopped taking it. She gave me anti-steroid creams, yeast infection medicine and anti-flammatory creams. Nothing was working. I changed my soap. I work out 5 times a week and would hurry back to my office/home to shower and make sure I was clean. I thought maybe that was aggravating me. Still, nothing...my GYN suggested that I take Probiotics. It still wasn't helping but the symptoms weren't as severe as before. For about 5 months I didn't have any issues. Back in 2011 I experienced this. I remember I thought I had a stubborn yeast infection that I couldn't get rid of. I went to the doctor several times, again, checked for STD's and yeast infection and everything came back normal. That particular instance only lasted 1 month. This time, it has been going on since last June.  Then, last Thursday, the symptoms started up again. Great....So, I am thinking I have another yeast infection because that's what it feels like. I will have pain inside my vagina on the left side near the opening. Then, it will change to tingling around my Clitoris and Vulva area...then it will move to my left side, then to the middle opening of my vagina. Sex is painful. I use Astro-glide whenever I have sex with my fiancé because it makes it easier but afterwards, omg, I am paying for it. It burns like crazy! But this doesn't happen every time we have sex. It's hit and miss. I hate that I have to use lubricant to have sex. I'm 36 years old. I do not have any medical problems. I have had my Thyroid checked, I work out, eat right. But I have found myself drinking 1-2 glasses a wine a night because it helps numb the pain. I don't want this to be  my relief. My Fiancé' has been very supportive despite my ways of thinking. This has caused me to feel somewhat depressed, anxious, lowered-self esteem and confidence because I can't perform sexually as I would like. I find myself stressing myself out because I worry about my Fiancé' just getting fed up and being like, "I can't deal with this. I want a woman who can please me." He has never said that I know deep down that he wouldn't but still, does it cross my mind, yes.  I get some solace from him still wanting to marry despite my condition. I know there is no cure for this condition. I guess I am more or less just venting because I feel so isolated and alone.....  Crying or Very sad

So similar to how I have felt. Make sure first and foremost that you communicate with your fiance throughout this (my fiance and I have made sure to do so, and I've had this issue now for a bit over 4 years). I'd encourage you to try and work with your doctor or find one who can treat you better if you don't feel that this doctor is helping. Amitriptyline is an option but I had some bad side effects, as I did with other medications. I ended up having surgery, which has helped but not fixed things.

Push yourself to be positive; it's really hard, but once you can do it sometimes, life isn't as bad. <3
