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 …

-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 …

yeast infection

Post  chester on Mon Dec 20, 2010 10:37 pm

i have been getting yeast infections under my clitoral hood?!? does that make any sense? Any one else hear of this? Why/how does the yeast just go there (its really painful)& the dr.s dont see yeast anywhere else. Can this be related to my vulvoldynia? or is it a separate problem?
Any ideas? Remedies? Suggestions?
Question

Yeast loves sugar, have you tried cutting back on that?

If it is nowhere else then I would suggest you only need to treat that area so if you do have any canesten cream dont smother it everywhere as it has been thought to make the Vulva area more sensitive.

Also in terms of prevention try sum acidophilus pills. You can get them from health food stores and they are bascially the good bacteria you would find in live yougurt. But by taking the pills you dont have to eat tons of yougurt! take these asap as they will act to restore the balance of the good bacteria. Yeast infections come about because the bad bacteria takes over.

Also Garlic is anti yeast as well as caprylic acid capsules.

In the mean time do the usual that im sure you are doing..only cotton underwear..no purfumes or scented bath products of any kind and try taking a course of anti fungal oral medication to get rid of it once and for all

The link between yeast and vulvodynia is a hot topic..some think the anti yeast creams can cause the vulvodynia symptoms, some think the yeast itself can be a cause and some think vulvodynia is a by-product of re-current yeast infections as the tissues become sensitive from the infections. Im not to sure but I do think the two are linked in some way.

Let us know how you get on with the yeast treatment and if it helps to reduce your overall vulva sypmtoms
