Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

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

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

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 …

New diagnosis and feeling defeated

Post  JstMrried on Sun Jan 25, 2015 8:00 am

Curse (Age 25)
I want to leave my body, this broken equipment. And maybe that's selfish considering what so so many others go through. My Aunt with cancer and my sister with heartache. I just can't help but wonder why I would find my perfect match just to punish him like this, me like this. (just married in may) If we hadn't met and I was single, I wouldn't even care about sex, I wouldn't even think about sex. I'd go about my own day, not knowing what I'm missing. But when I see him everyday is like looking outside a window on a gorgeous sunny day and you're working. And you can't get out, no break, no tan, no sunshine, no happiness, and just a tease. And you stay in business mode ; for the first few hours (meaning the first few months) your hopeful that you can maintain order with fluency. But then as the whole day goes by (over half a year) you have a thought thinking "I'm going to get stuck in this persona," bitter and work oriented because it's the only way you can succeed and not fail (be broken). You get turned on by simply watching him grab a drink from the fridge, cold shower. You get wet watching a romantic kiss in a chick flick, cold shower. The thing is, without the cold shower you open yourself up to being touched...to have inflicted, unintentional pain. Sex now associated with that explosion of pain like a deep knife at the most sensitive spot. And when you wait long enough, it doesn't matter...you want something...you take the pain. You want him and anything that comes with it is worth it, until the pain is so unbearable that he notices you crying while he's taking you, instantly killing the mood and any feelings of closeness, wholeness are gone along with his boner. That's how I know he loves me, and that's how I know I should be telling myself I'm lucky. But instead I just feel so broken and slowly losing myself.
After the crying after he's cum, I pull into myself. I feel so selfish for thinking about this pain when he's been in abstinence so long because of me, so I feel like I shouldn't tell him the repercussions. I just bury these feelings in tears and big gulps, and I hide. And I feel more alone because of myself, because I don't tell him how deeply rooted I'm damaged. That part is my fault, but talking about it won't fix my faulty womanhood, and it makes him feel worse.

I know there's no question to this passage, but can anyone offer insight to a newlywed?

That's awful. I know what you mean about feeling selfish I was just thinking today how selfish I am for dating. I love my boyfriend so so much but I feel like he deserves someone normal. I have finally opened up to my sister and I think I'm going to try pain meds I made a doc appt. have you tired anything like that?
