An absolute success story- please read!

Dear All,

I posted on here back in March 2017 having just got a diagnosis of vulvodynia after a few months of relentless and acute pain. I was desperate, I was hurting, I was scared I would never know life without pain there again.

I tried creams, acupuncture, numbing gels, frozen pads, baths with various internet recommended concoctions- convinced myself I had lichen sclerosus, herpes, thrush- …

I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Post  zarli on Sun Jun 08, 2014 10:51 am

I have just read some recent posts which brought me back to my darkest days...I drove myself to an after hours clinic 7.5 years ago telling them I wanted to not be here any more because of this shit chronic pain disorder, a lady doctor saw me she was my 6th doctor she diagnosed me and prescribed amiltriptilyn. I started at 10 mg and slowly went up to 35mg. It saved my life. I am here for any one of you even if you think you can't say what you are thinking. No one understands this unless they have it. Neuralgia pain is often called the suicide pain. BUT as much as its how we may feel there is help and long lasting pain relief. Typical of us women that we have to sometimes ( often) find our own support and way ahead. I have learnt to say in the mirror every day WHEN I LOVED MYSELF ENOUGH. ....I WILL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF MY MIND AND BODY BECAUSE I AM WORTH IT.

In need of a rant!

Post  virgo33 on Mon Jun 16, 2014 2:03 am

Ok so I am new here but have been suffering with vulvodynia for a little over 2 years. I have seen 4 docs., taking amitriptyline 50m per night, fish oil/daily, magnesium/daily and coq10/daily. My meds for the most part keep my pain at a level 1-2 the majority of the time, which at this stage is tolerable being that my pain began anywhere between 5-10 and was unable to sleep most nights. I am excited that I have found this site. When I have been to the dr. I say it is really hard and I feel alone without support. I'm sure you know the response I get"Yes I have other patients that say this too". But that is where it ends! no support group name, no 800#  no website. I can tell my sis and bff but they can only relate so much. They don't understand that this really does affect my everyday life and that I have to put on a happy face because I cant just go around telling people when they ask how I'm doing that the truth is my vag burns all the time and when they say they can't believe i'm single or that some one hasn't just swept me off my feet I want to say oh they could but then they wouldn't be happy with their sex life. Yes I am in need of a rant!
Thanks for being here!
