Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico


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 …

Recovered from Vulvodynia

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

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 …

Newly diagnosed

Post  drivenbyambition on Mon Mar 02, 2015 11:35 pm

My story started when I noticed a burning sensation last year. My period was late and I wore a maxi pad in fear of my period starting unexpectedly. I got very irritated and eventually ended up with bacterial vaginosis (that I believe happened due to the maxi pads). When I went for my pelvic exam, I was diagnosed with the previous mentioned condition, but was told treating it would not heal my inflammation. I was told to use diaper rash cream, hydrocortisone, etc. Nothing helped. Fast forward to this year, I began seeing another doctor, an OBGYN. He prescribed a cream at first, which gave a little bit of pain relief the first few days, but discontinued when I realized it was not working. He said if this cream did not solve my issue, it would be time for a biopsy. He said it could be a number of conditions because vulvar issues do not present themselves the same way in each woman. This past appointment, last Monday, I had the biopsy. I cannot describe the pain I went through with the lidocaine injection. It was bearable, I did not cry, but I never want to have another one. I was absolutely miserable this past week. I received the official call that I have vulvodynia and will be referred to a specialist. I have been prescribed Gabapentin, which the side effects scare me, and my husband I both wonder how an oral medicine is going to help with the redness and inflammation. I am so very scared to never be the same again. I'm scared about the long-term effects of this medicine on fertility, because I am yet to have children. Sorry for the long post, and as much as I hate this condition, I am glad I have found a place where I'm not ashamed to talk to others about it. It's been hard this past year, because no one has understood my every day struggle. Thanks for reading.

Please let us know what your specialist says. Gababentin (Neurontin) is actually a seizure medication that has been discovered to help to numb nerves and decrease nerve pain. It is prescribed a lot for what we have. Also Lyrica is one of those that is newer but costs more. It is also prescribed for people with Fibromyalgia and Diabete nerve pain. You can look it up on the net, google it. It should tell you if it's been okayed if you get pregnant. Don't know anything about a long term effect for when you bet pregnant later. I imagine it doesn't change in Chromosomes so it should not affect a future pregnancy especially if you are already off of it. I can't imagine, though, pushing a baby out of my vulva burning like it does. Ouch. Or even getting pregnant for that matter. Good luck. Hope this helped and don't forget to tell us if your specialist has any new methods.

I am still waiting for my appointment to be scheduled. I do know that she will begin by prescribing medicine. Starting with one and going through about five. She has her full treatment plan listed online. Last resort would be surgery.

I have decided not to take the medicine yet if at all until I have my first child. I would prefer to have a C-section due to this condition, which I never thought I would ever say that.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I'm quite nervous and scared.
