New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

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 …

I am new here and hope to gain some insight into my vulva pain. I suffered for a long time not realizing that there are ways to feel better. I saw the Dr. yesterday and I am starting P/T pelvic and valium suppositories. queen

Had this for 5 years, looking for people who understand

Sat Oct 06, 2018 9:46 pm by blackberrie

Hey all. I'm really struggling to find anyone in real life who can really understand what I'm going through. I've had vestibulodynia for 5 years now and I'm single. Obviously it has completely affected how I approach dating and sex and the fact that I can't really talk to people irl about it has made me feel very lonely. I've found that a lot of the women who have this problem are married and …

Anyone have pain with urination?

Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:35 pm by mertzwl

Hi everyone - I can't believe I've been dealing with this for almost 10 years and an appointment scheduler at a urogyn office is the one to suggest I look into vulvodynia. Honestly, I don't care, I just thankful I might have an answer.

I have pain in one specific spot right around the urethral opening so it always coincides with urinating (it's not a uti). Does anyone else deal with pain …

Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

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 …

6 year sufferer but I’ve found some hope

Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:33 am by Npage14

Hey, ladies! I’m new to this support group, I’ve thought about doing something like this for a while so I wanted to try this out! I’ve had vulvodynia for 6 years now, I am self diagnosed. I’m 20 now and the pain started when I had my first encounter with sexual contact when I was 14(I still remained a virgin though it was fingering). For a couple years the pain was so bad I could hardly …

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 now 8 weeks post surgery, I was given the all clear to have sex again on the 13/03/15 I've only had sex twice since then. Once wasn't very enjoyable it was just to test the tissue and everything was fine but I did experience some little red lines at the base of my vagina where the skin was removed, they looked like little red bloody veins. Then last night, 22/03/15 I had sex again, this time was a lot faster and I managed to penetrate. It didn't hurt but I did feel right at the bottom of my vagina, I was told it wouldn't be enjoyable for the first couple of weeks but it wasn't anything that made me want to stop. My boyfriend finished, and that's when I felt the stinging when I was cleaning myself up, at the base of my vagina that red line was there again, but it stung like a b@tch!

Is this normal? It isn't an open cut, it didn't bleed it's more of a weird little stretch mark of that makes sense. Has anyone else experienced this who's had the surgery? Or even if you haven't.

Hi. Thanks for wanting to check up with me.

Everything is okay now, I still have some mild burning occasionally but nothing to major, I am now able to have sex. I thought I had lost lubrication but I haven't it just takes longer for me to be able to get wet. I find that a lot of for play before sex makes it a lot easier. ☺️ I do need to have the surgery again though, before I had a partial vestibulectomy but I now want the rest of my vestibule removed because I do still have some painful tissue around my urethra which makes passing wee slightly painful.

Message me if you have any questions x

I have localised vulvodynia since 2006. However after a treatment [anti-fungal and steroid creams basically] that i had 3 years ago [and i paid £1200 only for two sessions!!] i developed pain around my urethra and i have the same problem as you, it is so painful to urinate! My condition, from provoked it became mixed [provoked and unprovoked, it is still localised though]. Also, before that, i was able to have pain free penetration when i was applying lidocaine, but now, during and after the application i am suffering for hours, and all because of those painful tissues i have around the urethra. Just wait to be healed completely and afterwards just try non-surgical options to get rid of that pain. If i find something that helps, i will let u know! Smile After i finish my uni's exams i'll do my best, now i am too busy to bother. Razz
