Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

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 …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25


I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured


Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

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 …

New and desperate for advice

Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

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?

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
