Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

He said this is …

-ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

As of now I am …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

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!
