Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

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 …

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.

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 …

Magnesium oil/flakes

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

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

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

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!

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.
