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 …

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

My experience

Post  rosechar on Thu Apr 16, 2015 8:46 pm

Hello all,

I have been debating joining a forum like this one for a while, but the thought of discovering hardly any cases of recovery scared me a bit. I've been suffering with vulvodynia since the age of about 13/14, I am now 18 and it is still as chronic as it has always been. I wasn't diagnosed until after several hospital, doctors and clinic appointments. It gave me some relief knowing that the pain I felt had a name, but I still had to live with it. My pain is present all the time, although it is at its worst when I have flare ups.

I've tried various creams and natural remedies such as E45, Vagisil, Canesten, Aqueous cream, coconut oil, Vaseline, aloe vera and many vitamins to try and boost my immune system but none have helped me on a permanent basis. I also took Amitriptyline for a while and that didn't help a lot either and it wiped me out.

Any other easily accessible treatment method ideas I could try would be very much appreciated. I'll take anything I can get at this point as it is getting in the way of every day life.

Hiya, there's a lower dose of medication you could take called Nortriptyline it helped for me for around six months and eased my pain a little. You could also try lidocaine or instillagel. The gel numbs the area for a slight while to give you a resting period of relief

My doctor has me taking a probiotic to promote vaginal health. I'm using estrogen cream at night. I tried creams for fungal/skin infections and it just about killed me. Honestly the only thing that helps is warm baths and ice packs. And of coarse ibuprofen for swelling. I've had vulvar vestibulitis/vulvodynia since I was 17 and I am now turning 21 so I feel your pain. I'm here if you need anything xo
