MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Magnesium oil/flakes

Post  Sunflower82 on Tue Apr 22, 2014 5:06 pm

Hi,
I've been reading about magnesium and how increase you intake can generally help!
Has anyone had any expeience of using the oil or flakes as a soak in the bath? I would like to give it a try but I don't use anything in the bath and I wonder if it can affect the skin around the vulvar ?

Many thanks

Katie

As a nurse, I'm thinking you should, and I do, take magnesium by mouth not in a bath. It will help relax muscles. I cannot not say if it is helping or not as I have had an interruption in my daily routine. I do know it is taken to help relax and also will help you not be constipated when taking calcium which constipates. I have taken as much as 400 mg daily but not lately. If you get diarriah cut back.

Magnesium flakes/oil

Post  Sunflower82 on Wed Apr 23, 2014 7:35 am

Hi,
Thanks for your reply, I tested out the flakes last night only used half a bag but it felt ok down below! Hoping it will help to relax me, I am taking a pre natal vitamin with magnesium in but when I checked the level it's only 35mg so I may start an additional supplement but I think I have to be careful as I'm 5 and a half weeks pregnant!

Thanks

Katie

Right now I'm actually trying magnesium oil directly onto my vulva, actually. I'll report back on how it works, but I think it might be helping.

As for whether you should get the extra magnesium, the vast majority of people are very low in magnesium, if not deficient. Calculate how much you're getting through other sources, look up how much is the ideal amount for a pregnant woman, and then check how much you'll get from the magnesium oil. I think it's easier to calculate with the oil in spray form than it is if you put Epsom salts into the bath. My guess is that you'd still be fine.

It can be a skin irritant, though. If it is for you, there are two things you can do. One is to put on a layer of plain vegetable oil first. I'm finding hempseed oil from the supermarket to be great for that, it's very light and absorbs fast. (And I end up with beautifully moisturised skin.) The other is to dilute the magnesium oil by adding a bit of water to it.
