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 …

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 …

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 …

Ipl/lazer hair removal bikin line

Post  Mary1000 on Sat Nov 15, 2014 6:58 pm

Hiya,

Was wondering if anyone has ever had ipl/lazer hair removal on their bikini line before?

Or if you know if it would effect my vulvadynia.

I'm not in acute stage of it like I was last year. The constant pain stopped from seeing a physio and many other things like coconut oil.also breaking up with my boyfriend so not having sex which caused a lot of emotions as wasn't able too. Still have slight pain when it becomes irritated from urine. But nothing like before. And still can't go swimming. If the outer labia has hair removed could it cause my inner vulva pain to worsen? I wanted to get it all removed around that area.

Thanks for any responses received.

Never wrote on a forum before but read everyone on the internet when I was first diagnosed and am always great full for them.

Also just wanted to say it took 10 years for me to be properly diagnosed but I am now coming out of the other side and sometimes I forget it's even there. Some days not. May change again if I get a boyfriend and am slightly scared it will come back full power then. But hopefully will feel more confident if my hair removal is fixed.

Please don't loose hope. It can and will get better. X

Hi Mary! Good timing I've just started IPL and have been wondering the same thing for ages and then just decided to take the plunge! My pain is only where I have pubic hair... It's like the pubic hair is the trigger and the hair follicles are over senstive. Neuro meds not helping so I figure if I get rid of the hair, I won't feel the pain (sounds too easy doesn't it...?)

Anyway. Gynae seemed to think it would be worth the risk and shouldn't make the pain worse and it's been fine so far! Only had one session though, but it certainly didn't hurt any more than waxing etc.

I had a Hollywood, but if you're worried maybe start with an extended bikini?

Hi Georgia,

Thank you so so much for your reply and advice.

Glad to hear you didn't have any issues with it.

Totally feel for you and how annoying to have pain on the actual hair.

Hope it's gets better for you and all your hair never grows back.

Thanks again Smile x

Hi Mary, I'm new to this forum and have just come across your post.
I am a vulvodynia sufferer of over 2 and a half years and I can honestly say that IPL has not aggravated my vulvodynia at all.
I would say go for it!
