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 …

My vulvodynia challenge

Post  Cbobro on Mon Mar 09, 2015 2:03 am

I was diagnosed with this condition a little under a year ago. I would be in and out of the doctor once a week, trying out different creams, antibiotics or pills that would take away the pain. I went to the gynecologist more than I have been to one my whole life. Every test they ran, would always come out negative. I felt alone and confused as to why this happened to me. I would be in unbearable pain everyday this past summer. I wasn't able to live the life that I wanted. I would constantly be annoying by crying about my pain to my friends all the time. I would feel bad and I would also feel alone because no one understood the amount of pain that I was actually in. Doctors would tell me that it's something to do with psychological issues but I truly don't believe that. I would be the happiest person on earth and still be in pain. But I would also be at my lowest points. I had depression over the summer where I wanted to just give up the fight and take the easy route out. I would cry to my mom every night begging for the pain to go away. Suddenly, after months of dealing with the torture, the pain began to go away, I was happy again and loving my life again. Until once again after 4 months I had a flare up. The burning pain was back, the discharge continued and the shooting pains got progressively worse. I figured that I've been through this challenge before and there's no way I'm letting it control me the way that it did before. I continue to have ice packs water bottles and anything cold between my legs to make the pain seem some what better. It's the biggest challenge I've had to over come but in the long run it has made me a hell of a fighter. I hope one day that the pain will vanish and I will be able to live the life with out pain, and I hope that all of you will continue to do the same thing!
-Chrissy (:

I hardly ever not feel this condition. It is depressing in a way, but I am trying to stay positive and know that my fertility and life means more than pumping myself with medications with no long term studies. Personal opinion. However, today and the past three days have been very trying.

Feel better.

I know it may seem like its the end of the world now, but I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. This condition can make anyone the strongest person if they persevere from it. I myself continue to start feeling the pain but I don't let it control my life anymore. There is hope, and you just have to believe that from now on!
