Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

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 …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

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.
