Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico


I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

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 …

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

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 …

I'm New and need my fellow V's

Post  nanmark3 on Fri Apr 11, 2014 3:16 am

Hi Ladies, I’m so glad to know I’m not alone in this journey! For 24 years I’ve had signs of V, but just here and there.
26 months ago it felt like my body totally turned on me! I had slowly built up to walking 5 miles, so proud of myself! Then my world crashed! **My vulva and inner thighs were so painful and swollen! **My fibromyalgia flared big time! **My painful feet all of the sudden had big, painful lumps in the middle of my arches. **My seborrhea dermatitis erupted all over my face.
So here I was, it was too painful to walk or stand, too painful to sit, too painful to wear panties let alone pants, no more sitting like a lady with my knees together not even in a dress! Sad to say, that’s still my story, though I‘m not still falling apart emotionally.
After various doctors and a lot of research… mine is Generalized V. -constant vulva pain often times into the inner thighs. Painful sex is more common now and dryness, which I use Coconut oil for. Mine stems from 24 yrs. of unresolved hip and pelvis pain, I’m doing 2 treatments that are showing promise and the low oxalate diet. (because with the FM I had IBS for 22 yrs.) which has lessened the extreme V pain by 1/2 so far. My heart goes out to all of you dear women! I hope I'm not going on too long for my intro! Nancy

Hello Nancy! Welcome to the forum. You are not alone. There are many wonderful ladies on here. Read through all the posts and I'm sure you will find inspiration, hope and comfort in that we all understand what you are going through. What treatments are you doing that have helped? I too found that coconut oil was helpful. Now I use Crisco which is a little more emollient which makes it last longer.

Thank you so much for your replies Delilah and Tinkerbelle Smile Yes, I've been reading for weeks, gaining knowledge and strength. Delilah the two therapies that I've started are by the same practitioner, 30 minutes of PRRT (pronounced 'pert') Primal Reflex Release Technique then 30 min. of Bowen Therapy. PRRT because of previous unresolved trauma causing my pelvis and sacrum to constantly rotate out. They are both forms of soft tissue massage but so much more. I'm pleasantly shocked at how powerful they each are! If you look into Bowen at Bowen directory .com thoroughly look into their training, the 2 in my area both had the same title "advanced training" though looking into their schools programs - one had only basic training and mine had the most extensive training at a different school. It's the first time I've had real hope for relief in this old system for so long!!!
The only downside - the very evening after my first treatment I broke out with an extreme rash where my vv connects to my inner thighs. I've never seen anything like it, not painful - since 95% of the time I'm in bed but after Castor oil not clearing it up I tried Fluocinonide until she told me it was my body releasing toxins so not to try to get rid of it but to let it run it's course with natural oil to sooth it. That gave me a lot of peace, I have no doubt that is the most toxic area of my body especially with all of those sharp oxalate crystals and what a big sign of how quickly it's working on my stubborn system. I've had other major signs of their having good work in me too. How good to be able to share therapies and encouragement!!!
xo Nancy
