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.

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 …

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 …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

Vulvodynia nerve pain after having baby

Post  ethome on Tue Dec 09, 2014 8:33 pm

I recently had my second baby 7 months ago and since then I have had pain at the site where I tore and just inside my vagina. It only really hurt if pressure was applied but I have recently had a steroid and anesthetic injection into the vagina area to help treat this. This has made things so much worse as now I have pain all the time. It throbs and burns constantly. I went back to the gynae who treated me and he said that there was no reason for me to be feeling like this. He couldn't say a lot other than I shouldn't be in discomfort and gave me some lidocane gel. I am keen to know if anyone else has experienced this and if it will subside. This was 4 weeks ago. Thank you

In a similar situation

Post  Kissimmo on Wed Dec 24, 2014 11:46 am

Hi there,

This is my first time on this site, I've only just discovered it. Bit overwhelmed by the wealth of information and advice but finally not feeling so alone!

I had my little girl just over 7 years ago. I experienced a third degree. 10 weeks later, we had sex, it really hurt but kind of thought it was normal and would ease with time. A year down the line it was still hurting. I was diagnosed with 'vaginismus' described to me as a pyschological condition that manifests itself physically i.e. it my body was remembering the pain of childbirth and tensing up the muscles and therefore hurting. I had a session of counselling and it was quickly noted that I really didn't have an 'issue'. I then had a year or so of physiotherapy to 'retrain the muscles'. It had no effect. Years followed of frustrating appointments with various people. Eventually a doctor decided I actually wasn't phycially right down there. She did a biopsy and it turned out I have a skin condition called 'lichen planus'. It's an autoimmune thing. They don't know what caused it, perhaps being pregnant or perhaps a weakness around the scar tissue.....but unfortunately there is no cure. However, there are ways of treating the symptoms. Sadly, none of the steroids/creams worked for me. Lidocaine didn't make a difference to the pain either. I am currently on Nortriptyline which is usually used as a anti depressant but in this case can help weaken the nerves down there. So far it hasn't worked, I've been asked to double the dose from 50mg to 100mg and see if that makes any difference.

Looking on here there seems to be so many routes to go down....acupuncture, homeopathy.....I'm not sure where to go next but feel like I need to give this medication a proper shot first.

I'm so sorry your doctor has been so unhelpful! I have just started to see a dermatologist at the hospital who specialises in skin disorders of this area. Would it be possible for you to maybe ask your GP if there is similar in your area and get referred? I forgot to add to 'my story' I also had allergy tests. I have never reacted to anything before so was very surprised to learn I am allergic to fragrance. I have completely stopped using fragrance body washes etc and wash my underwear in non-allergic non-frangranced stuff. It seems childbrith can make this area susceptible to reactions to things, perhaps you didn't react well to the injection? Sorry I haven't been very helpful in offering advice, but hope it's some comfort knowing it's not just you! I really hope things improve for you soon. It's very frustrating I know!
