Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

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 …

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 …

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.

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.
