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 …

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 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 …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

I am new here and hope to gain some insight into my vulva pain. I suffered for a long time not realizing that there are ways to feel better. I saw the Dr. yesterday and I am starting P/T pelvic and valium suppositories. queen

Had this for 5 years, looking for people who understand

Sat Oct 06, 2018 9:46 pm by blackberrie

Hey all. I'm really struggling to find anyone in real life who can really understand what I'm going through. I've had vestibulodynia for 5 years now and I'm single. Obviously it has completely affected how I approach dating and sex and the fact that I can't really talk to people irl about it has made me feel very lonely. I've found that a lot of the women who have this problem are married and …

Anyone have pain with urination?

Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:35 pm by mertzwl

Hi everyone - I can't believe I've been dealing with this for almost 10 years and an appointment scheduler at a urogyn office is the one to suggest I look into vulvodynia. Honestly, I don't care, I just thankful I might have an answer.

I have pain in one specific spot right around the urethral opening so it always coincides with urinating (it's not a uti). Does anyone else deal with pain …

Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

Physio Success so far

Post  ringostarr26 on Sun Jul 20, 2014 4:43 pm

Hi Ladies,

I have been MIA a bit studying for my last exam of my undergrad so I haven't been able to post, but I wanted to share some positive news. I have found an amazing physic therapist whose sole speciality is pelvic floor dysfunction in both women and men. She focuses a lot on breathing techniques and fascia massage to help lengthen and soften the muscles in the pelvic floor and surrounding tissues. I know PFD is common in women with vulvodynia so I really do believe getting a knowledgable physic therapist is important. I tried physic prior to this and felt to relief but her techniques were very different and she did not send me home with anything that I could do on my own. I hope everyone is getting some relief and remember stay positive. I know it is hard, trust me there are days when getting out of my bed is a struggle, but there are people out there who want to help us. Sending positive vibes to all you wonderful women who are going through this horrible condition. <3

Wow i have been gone from this forum for a while but I saw your post and wanted to give you an update. I am doing incredibly well. I did physio for about a year and I really do think it helped tremendously. Anytime I get a flare up I can usually keep it to minimal pain and return to normal activity. I have to say I am 90% pain free but it wasn't an easy journey. My pain started years ago, probably 7 years now. I saw many doctors and once i got my proper diagnosis I was on the mend. Please keep up with physio IF you have pelvic floor dysfunction issues. It truly is a life saver.
