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 …

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 …

Recovered from Vulvodynia

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 …

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 …

Would you say you're stressed?

Post  Micrm on Wed Apr 16, 2014 1:21 am

Just curious if general stress and tension is common among us all. Not afterwards but perhaps as a common cause/contributor?

Re: Would you say you're stressed?

Post  meelie on Thu Apr 17, 2014 2:35 pm

Yes, I was also extremely stressed at the time. Probably more stressed than I have ever been in my then 65 years on earth. I was thinking it was from holding muscles tight on the right side because of my left pelvic fx, but when I think of it, it is probably both together. Mine is from pelvic muscle dysfunction, we are 99% sure of this. Skin and tissue look fine, just had a gyn appointment on Monday. I am about sick to death of this. The only thing I think that keeps me from eating a bullet is that the burning goes away at night while I'm sleeping (not stress or pressure on the muscles) and usually does not start back until about 10 AM. I so feel for you guys that are hurting all the time and for such a long long time. I cannot not imagine such burning for such a long time. I do have some contact V when my husband wants sex but with lots of lub it is usually bearable.

This is very interesting. I hope someone would do an investigation into this. I think we have hit upon a very common thing. All the girls answering yet to this, have you come to the conclusion that it is pelvic floor dysfunction/muscle underlying cause?

A bath of any sort for me is off limits. I seriously believe vulvodynia is caused by stress affecting the nervous system. I am a sufferer of anxiety but I went through the worst time of my life then vulvodynia started. There has to be a link I am convinced.

thanks for posting everyone. I too am a worrier/clencher and have many tight muscles. My stress was something I never noticed until my vulvodynia flared up again in my 20s. It's interesting that so far we all share this commonality.

okey dokey, now that we know it's stress and muscle clenching and the like, why can't someone come up with the answer to stop it, put it to rest, make it relax. Oh my God, I so need to find a way to make them relax and fix the nerves that I am sure it has affected.

yes, I can be a very stressed out person, have always had anxiety problems, etc. but I try my best to manage it through various outlets like meditation, exercise, getting enough sleep...I think there's definitely a connection and I have read before that a lot of women with vulvodynia or chronic pain in general also have issues like anxiety, depression, etc.

in my particular case I don't think pelvic floor dysfunction is the root of the issue, I think it stems from autoimmunity and skin problems.

I did have pelvic floor dysfunction but physical therapy fixed that. The root of my problem is the nerves. My theory is that it is also caused by something autoimmune as I do have a few of those diseases.
