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 …

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 …

Can A Cut In Vestibule cause Vulvodynia?

Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:07 am by rockylife

Can a cut in the vestibule area cause vulvodynia? Is it possible that some nerve a were damaged that’s why I feel this pain in my area without visible lesions?

V recovery

Post  Rainy Day on Fri Apr 03, 2015 4:53 pm

I check in every once in a while, since I feel its important to give people hope. I usually don't watch the forum anymore since I feel good 95% of the time. I am still doing great. Going down the dosages in my meds again. I had somewhat of a flare several months ago, but I feel 100% again. There are many things that helped aid my recovery, but the most important is a positive attitude, medication, and avoidance of what makes the problem worse. Your life doesn't have to be ruled by V. You WILL get your life back. You can read my old posts to see my recovery. At my worst, I had burning all over my vagina, thighs, legs...everywhere. I haven't been that bad since. My more recent flares aren't ever as bad as my initial flare. I haven't had any sort of flare in months and months. And, I can wear JEANS. I, can have SEX. And, I can sit with no pain. Recovery IS possible.

V recovery

Hi Rainy Day

I don't seem to be able to find your old posts, please could you tell me what meds you are on/were on, how slowly/quickly you've been weaning off them & what type of V did you have?

It's great to hear you've been doing so well!

You're welcome to private message me if that's easier xx
