MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

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 …

Anyone tried botox?

Post  yoginimom on Tue Oct 21, 2014 2:45 am

I went to my internal physio again today and she recommended i try botox injections in the vaginal muscles. Has anyone tried that approach? Any thoughts?

I was going to, but too many side effects. If you do decide to go that road it's perfectly fine if you have vaginismus! But only muscular problems. Make sure you have a doctor who knows what they are doing. There are a ton of side effects that could occur if your doc is not proficient in injecting the Botox. I won't scare you with side effects, because it's a good treatment option with the right doctor (just like everything else).

I’ve never even heard of any treatment that involves taking botox injections in the vaginal muscles. What Alana3 said is right. You need to do your due diligence to find the best surgeon around who does something like this. I can only imagine the side effects if something goes wrong.  Sad  I spent a whole 3 months searching for and shortlisting good surgeons for my botox lip injections in Langley. I finally chose a nearby skin care clinic called Beauti-med. I don’t know if they do vaginal botox injections though. You may check on their site- beauti-med.com

Tried Botox twice not worked

Post  teresa6115 on Thu Oct 15, 2015 11:09 am

Hi Ladies,

I am new to this but desperate for help, I have suffered for three years now having paid private for several specialists after useless Doctors appointments. I have tried Botox twice under a specialist it is very painful and did not work for me. I have yet another appointment today with Womens Hospital to discuss the use of dialators! Creams have not worked I am on Pregabalin which works a little to relieve the constant pain. I am a little down at present and this is difficult as I am not in a great place. I have a very supportive husband of 33 years who has been my rock through this. My family are very close and are always there for me. However I know I do not have the dreaded C or anything life threatening but I feel this is wearing me down. I have had constant back ache since March and do not know if this is related or I am just getting old 53. My husband has encouraged me to join this forum for support. He is amazing!

Botox

Post  amyhp on Thu Oct 15, 2015 7:42 pm

I have had Botox many times and it did not work to take away my pain. It relaxed my muscles, but my pain stayed the same. I would say if your pain is just with sex, it would be worth the shot. I know a lot of women have had success.

I believe the idea of Botox is to paralyze the nerve to reduce pain. I haven't had Botox before but I am planning on undergoing Prolotherapy/Neural Therapy with a Naturopathic Doctor, that is, injections of a Dextrose Solution with Lidocaine over the next few months to numb the nerve. I have contact nerve pain localized to the vestibule area after experiencing severe irritation for years caused by a sulphate allergy.
