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 …

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 …

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


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 …

New here, diagnosed 2 years ago

Post  mythreesons on Wed Jul 30, 2014 8:17 pm

I'm Teri from Alberta, Canada. I was diagnosed with Vulvodynia 2 years ago after 2 months of terrible burning pain that doctors could find no reason for. I started taking Elavil (30 mg per day) and Vagifem 2 times/week. That kept symptoms mostly under control for almost 2 full years. About 6 weeks ago, I started my first major flare-up for reasons unknown and can't seem to get it under control again. My doctor is very uneducated on this condition and I'm in the process of trying to find a new doctor.

I'm trying to follow the low oxalate diet, but have found conflicting info on it. Some sites list certain foods that are okay while other sites say to avoid. How do I know which list to follow? I've also been taking calcium citrate for about 3 weeks (1200 mg per day). I've had some improvement since the start of this flare-up, but I'm a very long way from total relief. Some days are much worse than others. I'm feeling very lost.

It is so hard and understandable that you are feeling lost. You have been going through this for2 years. Keep researching doctors in your area you will find one that helps it can be along process. It is great that something worked for 2 years that means something will work again you might need your meds updated. Kind thoughts sent your way

I am not sure about the oxalate diet.  But there is a website solely for the purpose of vulvodynia.  (vulvodynia.com I think) I would go with what they say! Low to NO sugar, no yeast, it's pretty much a gluten free diet.  I couldn't do it I love food too much!  Maybe you should do a cleanse and then slowly add food back in your diet and see what effects you!

You poor thing! Needless to say you have come to the right place being on here. All the girls are amazing and very informative too Smile

How old are you? What tests and investigations have the doctors actually done on you?

Thank you. I am 45. Honestly, nothing has been done since I first started suffering 2 years ago. At that time, my doctor checked my hormone levels, tested me for STD's, yeast and BV. Despite testing negative for yeast, I was put on Fluconazole for a month, which did nothing. My doctor then gave me a steroid cream thinking perhaps I had lichen sclerosis (despite the fact my vulva did not appear as it would if I had this). Didn't help. After everything else failed, I was diagnosed as having vulvodynia. Like I said, treatment worked for 2 years so I've done no further investigating into finding a cause for my symptoms (if a cause can ever be found).

Is your doctor a specialist? A Gynecologist or Vulva specialist? If not you need to find a different doctor who knows what they are doing.

Now, I know what it is like to deal with incompetent doctors, I am seeing a new doctor in 3 days time and I have done my research with hormones! A basic blood test will NOT show a hormone imbalance most of the time. You need to get a special 24hour urine test, saliva test and special blood tests done. I will be asking this new doctor to do this for me because I believe my problem is hormonal.

Have you had a biopsy done? They are nowhere near as bad as people say, I have had 2 done and you literally can not tell where they got done! If you do have lichen sclerosis a biopsy will confirm it.

I have been like this for a year and a half, this new doctor will be doctor number 12! I will not give up until I find a cure for myself!

Do you have any other symptoms? Or are you totally healthy otherwise?
