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 …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

He said this is …

As of now I am …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

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 …

Ending Female Pain

Post  Sarah001 on Tue Nov 16, 2010 8:20 pm

I received a copy of Ending Female Pain today, it's a pretty expensive book (around 30-something pounds I think) but I had some Amazon vouchers and thought rather than use them on everyone else at Xmas why not buy myself something! It's got alot of information in it about the pelvic floor, different types of self massage, positive thinking, topical applications etc and the author is a previous sufferer who recovered. She treats people at her clinic in New York but wrote the book for those of us who can't get there and it's also got alot of testimonals from previous clients who are doing really well with these methods. I haven't absorbed all the info yet but it seems it was well worth buying it, there are 11 different reverse kegel positions in it alone and yoga and pilates style stuff, it seems like a really good book.

A question and answer session would be fantastic if she'd do it! As she's in NY most of us would have to try and coordinate our times on here, I'll look at her name next time I'm near the book and let you know how to contact her.

She also mentions the other condition you have (vagi... forgotten the rest! The one where the muscles clamp up) and says that's often a pelvic floor issue too. And in the back is a few pages of photos showing the best place for TENS pads for various problems, she has one that affects the pudendal nerve so I might try that!

One thing I really like about the book though is no matter where you are on the pelvic floor work she still gives exercises for you to do so even if you are still in the release stage like I am you can do some of the other exercises but in a way designed not to tighten the pelvic floor up again.

And she also tells us how to find certain muscles that are usually implicated in this, the obturator internus is one I knew where it was but didn't know exactly how to isolate it to massage it and she explains that too. It's a really good book!

The massage advice is good, there's a couple of techniques you can do by hand and she gives advice on using a dilator to reach trigger points higher up which is very helpful. I know for a fact I've got trigger points in my pelvic floor as the physio pressed one when she was testing my contractions with her finger! She also gives some external massage for the vulva to reduce restrictions in the superficial muscles which is something I've not come across before. I like that she's a former sufferer and she's made it her life's work to figure out ways to help the problem.
