New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

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 …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Not sure what is wrong with me..

Not sure what is wrong with me..

Post  FallingSlowly on Sat Apr 11, 2015 3:43 pm

Hello ladies- I am glad to have found this forum. Not that I want anyone else to be suffering like I am, but I do find comfort in knowing that I'm not alone, and even more comfort in the fact that success stories are shared to help others.

I've been suffering for a year and a half now, with no luck whatsoever on coming closer to a diagnosis. None of the 6 doctors (3 gyns, 2 gps, 1 infectious disease specialist, 1 PT) will say I have vulvodynia, but since all testing has come out negative, I've made the diagnosis myself.

I can't seem to find anyone that has my exact symptoms though, which is discouraging. I am swollen about 90% of the time, and then every two weeks, I get an intense burning on my left inner labia-- it is visibly red when this happens. When the burning goes away, the swelling still stays, and nothing I've tried has been able to provide relief.

I just want my life back-- I've allowed this to define me despite my greatest efforts not to. Any tips on relief for the swelling or how you are able to get through the days with a smile when all you want to do is curl up and hide would be greatly appreciated!

Hi. I don't know what part off the world you are from but you should enquire about seeing a vulvodynia specialist. You'll probably have to pay to see them but I'm sure you know that if you've already seen a specialist for something else.
Suffering by yourself without s confirmed diagnosis will drive you crazy I can't imagine not having it confirmed for as long as you have.

I used to get swelling sometimes, mainly with tight clothing or after sex really. Or if I was really hot down there, I had the surgery done not long ago. I still have slight burning sometimes but nothing that's to bad.

Like I said if you need any help finding a specialist feel free to message me.
