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 …

Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Stress causing vulvodynia

Post  Caropes on Tue Jun 03, 2014 2:55 pm

Hello Ladies, in reading some of the past posts, I saw a lot of people saying their vulvodynia was initially caused by stress. Although I haven't been officially diagnosed yet (I self-diagnosed myself with a lot of research), with vulvodynia I can say that all my symptoms started after a very, very stressful time in my life! And although the stress has passed I am still stuck with the pain. I have a constant achy type pain all around my vulvar area. Not the inside, and I don't have trouble with pain on the inside. I see the gynecologist tomorrow and am bringing everything I learned about vulvodynia with me to show him. Hoping and praying he has some answers for me. The depression that comes along with this is debilitating. I just want to be better again. Thanks all for listening.

Hi, I do feel that stress and specifically ptsd greatly contributed to my symptoms. This is not to say that it's all in our heads! It's a very real physical problem and stress can contribute like it can to most if not all illnesses and syndromes. How did the appt with the gynae go?

Stress causing this curse has nothing to do with being in our heads. It sounded like you think if it is caused by stress that it is in our heads. The stress causes our muscles to tighten like knots and damages the nerve ending and stuff like that. Absolutely it is not in our heads if it is stress related. You may not have meant it like this but it sounded like if it's stress it's phycosomatic (spelling) and not physical. It is totally physical pain. Sorry, just didn't want it misunderstood. Smile

Katiej,
I think I just replied to another post. Yes. I have fully recovered. I can wild sex and fully enjoy it. (Sorry for TMI... sex was always my ultimate test Wink

OK... I followed the recommendations by Anthony William. According to him, stress can be a trigger. It's not the reason your vagina burns but it wears down your immunity. If your vagina burns it means your fighting a strep infection or shingles (both currently undetectable). If you immunity is comprised and your body isn't strong enough to fight these infections, then they get stronger. Also, if the stress is forcing you to produce adrenaline then that is corrosive to the entire body. So yes, it can act like a trigger.

That makes sense. U mentioned in other post a rash. Im very itchy but I dont have any rash or any visible signs of anything. The inside of my vag is fine its all the outside. What do u do to get rid of the shingles down there if thats the cause.

Re: Stress causing vulvodynia

Post  sarisbaris on Sun Nov 26, 2017 3:39 pm

Katiej,
The reason women have such a hard time getting rid of this is because they need to fully understand the virus. It's not hard once you understand how it works. Eggs, dairy, wheat, canola oil and metals all feed shingles and strep. So you need to avoid those. Lobelia cured mine but I was already doing the detox/avoiding foods that feed it and I was eating foods that kill it.

So first educate yourself. http://myvulvodyniacure.blogspot.com/2016/12/if-you-are-in-pain.html
Listen/read to the shingles show/post, strep and EBV. All listed in the necessary reading section. EBV is actually the foundational virus. Basically, this virus that no one understands weakened your liver/organs which allowed these other weak viruses to take over. If you really think that you are fighting shingles then you can buy his book. He has a whole chapter on shingles and his writing is a little more clear then his radio shows. You can download it straight to your phone if you don't want to wait. The more you understand what's going on the faster you will heal because you will know what to do.

If you don't see a difference with lobelia then you might want to try the strep protocol. But follow your gut! If you feel that your body is battling shingles then you're probably fighting it. That was the most important lesson I learned battling V. I learned how to listen to my intuition.

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any questions.
