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 …

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

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 …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

Alternatives to intercourse?

Post  geog272 on Wed Apr 22, 2015 1:15 am

I have DIV, vaginismus, and mild vulvodynia. Intercourse is always painful to some degree. Sometimes it is tolerable, sometimes not, occasionally it is actually pleasurable but overall I dread sex and hate it. Can anyone give me some ideas for other things that you are able to do with your DH to keep him happy? I have given so many BJs in the past five years that I am starting to find them repulsive. I am also the sleep deprived mother of a one year old who still doesn't sleep through the night and I am just so tired. I am feeling like sex and anything close to it requires an emotional energy reserve I no longer have. I wish that sex didn't exist! No

I totally understand your situation!  I too am so sick of BJs!  I didn't mind doing them before, as part of foreplay, briefly for fun, but when it's the whole meal deal, yuck!  Anyhow, the only other option I know of is a really good hand job.  I found this tip on the tv show Sex Tips of Girls.  You need lots of lube to make it work, and you use both hands.  You probably need to be sitting up, facing him.  So, grasp his member with both hands, one hand above the other, and twist your hands in opposite directions (kind of like wringing out a cloth - except more gently (or not!)).  While twisting, move your hands up and down.  Again, lots of lube.  My hubby loves this!  He actually asks for it, and enjoys the change from BJ, too.  Keep a towel handy, as it gets messy. I hope you can follow this explanation, as it's kind of hard to describe without pictures!  Best of luck!

PS:  I was unable to have intercourse for five years.  Sometimes my hubby will handle himself while I kiss his neck and cuddle with him.

Hey there! ive been treated for vulvodynia for the past two years sex was so unbearable and I got given all the creams and nothing worked. It seemed to hurt inside not necessarily on the vulva. I also had bleeding after intercourse so a couple weeks ago I had a surgery to fix that. Before the surgery I asked the doctor to have a look at my vulvodynia while she was doing it to see if it could be anything else. Anyway it turns out it was! I had long hymen tags/remnants that didn't break properly so that's why it was so painful during sex. I had a simple hymenectony and can't have sex for 6 weeks but am so hopeful it'll be pain free and will update. You should get another opinion you could be surprised. It made a lot of sense and matched all my symptoms that imitated vulvodynia and vaginismus (I was given all the trainers and was told for so long it was in my head). Thought it'll be worth sharing the word just in case know how awful it is Smile
