From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Best treatments for breakthrough pain while on medication and painful sex

Post  Londa07 on Mon Apr 21, 2014 5:14 am

I am 25 years old and have been diagnosed with Vulvodynia last year after suffering for 24 years of pain, burning and extreme discomfort. Even as a baby, I remember having to get a cold compress put on my vagina almost everyday at daycare and home. I don't feel surgery is an option for me because 100% of my vulva area and vaginal opening is affected by the pain this condition brings. Right now I am taking a antidepressant and it has significantly decreased my pain and increased my quality of life. My only problem is, the medicine only works about 85% of the time. I still have very severe "breakthrough" pain even while on my medication, especially when I am about to menstruate; the vulva pain is worse then any normal period pain  . Sex is out of the question because this medicine doesn't help this. When I attempt to have sex the penetration makes me swell shut and get infections because of how irritated I get. Has anyone else had this problem and found a treatment to assist with these issues?

See if you can skip periods on birth control if its linked to your period maybe eliminating that problem will help Smile

I got a vestibulectomy and it def helped! Maybe try a lidocaine patch to numb the area (or lubricated lidocaine) but you would probably need to use a condom because his penis would go numb! Or try a Xanax to calm you down, but that probably wouldn't do much for you just help you relax more....

painful sex..

Post  lavrose on Fri Apr 25, 2014 2:25 pm

Boric acid and vitamin e helped with the painful sex. Coconut oil (as a lube) works well too, def invest in a water based all natural lube. I would have never been able to have sex without some kind of lubrication..
