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

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 …

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 …

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 …

I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

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.
