New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

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.

So frustrating!!

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 …

I would like to say 'hi' to everyone and to introduce myself. I am Irish but have lived in Australia for 7 years now. I originally was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in 2003 in the UK and have been on fentanyl patches (25) ever since. I started menopause in 2006 and take HRT for that. In 2007 we moved to Australia and it was around that time that I started to experience urinary frequency for which I had a bladder investigation. My bladder apparently cracked and bled when examined, which I wasn't told about at the time. I continued to experience frequency and was given Vesicare tablets, which didn't help. Last year I had a radical nerve block in my back but continued to have referred nerve pain. It was around this time that I began to suffer from pelvic pain and severe itchiness in my vagina. I began to experience severe bouts of cystitis-like symptoms but each time I saw the doctor, there was no infection only some blood and raised white cell count. No one could tell me what was wrong until I saw a leading urologist two weeks ago who after looking at my notes informed me that I have Painful Bladder Syndrome (IC) and Vulvodynia with perhaps some VA thrown in for good measure. I am in so much pain sometimes, that I now have to change the fentanyl patches every 2 days instead of 3. Having this on top of back pain has left me feeling very low but antidepressants react with the patches so that's not an option. Sorry to be so long winded about this but I know that I have to live with what I've got and no amount of crying will change that. I am so glad to find a support group and hope to gain more knowledge through this site. My husband is totally unsupportive and as sex is so painful and my husband, uncaring, I know I will be on my own soon. This really concerns me as I know that I won't be able to work full time due to the pain and discomfort. I am completing my postgrad degree in June. Anyway, thanks for listening and I hope to hear from others who may have similar experiences.

Hi there and welcome. I am so sorry to hear your story. Do you have any other support apart from your husband ? Men.....Some times I have to remember not to judge them all the same !! Do you have a good gp? I would like to offer my friend ship to you and let you know that your not alone. Its great that you are completing your post grad. I am 42 and have had to go back to study so I can change my job because of my pain its hard work but so worth it. You will be ok. Love your self and believe you are strong and will be able to cope if you're on your own as you are more important than any one else.
Smile

Thank you Zarli,
Your offer of friendship is greatly appreciated and it's good to know there is someone who understands. I have a daughter and son near me but of course they must live their own lives. Do you find that even though we are loved by family, they don't always want to hear about your pain? I can understand this as they feel helpless and when the pain is constant, no one wants to hear about it, not even me! It has been difficult to study especially as stress over assignments makes the pain worse but it has also been a wonderful experience and given me something to look forward to. I have been busy with assignments this week so didn't get a chance to get onto this site. Hope to hear from you again, zarli x
