Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

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 …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Have you had any tests done? Swabs, blood tests, biopsies?

Go to a specialist! If they're only looking for STDs you need to find someone who can think outside the box.  And I would try and not wait a couple of weeks.  Go now, it's probably not going to get better by itself.  Did they test for ureaplasma, strep, BV? Yeast?  Did they tell you your skin was miscolored?  Anything other then "oh you're negative for stds".  I'll tell you my specialist didn't even hint at testing me for that stuff because he saw right away what the problem was.  A run of the mill gyno is not something you'd want for actual problems.  I had one put my acyclovir for herpes WHEN I DIDNT HAVE HERPES!  I finally said ENOUGH and paid a little more for better care. STD's were never mentioned.  I honestly feel that the only reason they test for those is because they don't know why else and at least they did something.

Don't play Dr. Google. It's a waste of everyone's time and you're going to freak yourself out worse.

I have been tested for bv and yeast... I had a uti a while ago they treated that. I thought it was herpes too but all my blood tests are neg and I don't get sores or anything. Also I would not have almost daily symptoms for months. I know I need to go to a better dr I just can't afford it right now. The drs just keep telling me it sounds like a skin irritation and to use dove soap and things like that.

Is there a cleveland clinic nearby? They were good. I went thru the herpes/wart scare too. Trust me you do not have them. Its probably along the lines of vulvodynia but you really need a.diagnosis.

Why the hell are they telling you to use Dove soap? It's full of irritants!!!

Until you can get a diagnosis, try and wash with only water as you may have an allergy to a chemical and make it worse.

Alana3 may I ask what "type" of specialist was the one to finally diagnose your condition correctly? A vulva specialist, Gyno, dermatologist?
