I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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

Hi,

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 …

Hi girls... I live in Australia.
I am currently undergoing a new treatment for vulvodynia. Just wondering if anyone else here has tried it. It's Endep in the form of cream to apply directly on the area. I dont know if anyone else has tried this but so far evidently it has had a 50% success rate.
Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

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 …

Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

My name is Eliza Barach and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia in October of 2017. I'm also PhD student at the State University of New York at Albany. I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

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 …

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 …

New to forum, sadly not to vestibulitis. Questions about discharge!!

Post  marylynn on Sun May 10, 2015 2:38 pm

Hi everyone, new here. The gist of my story: A little over a year ago I took antibiotics after a routine surgery, developed a yeast infection (the first and only culture that tested positive!) and then basically never felt better. Last summer a treated with every -azole under the sun which did not help, lots of boric acid which did seem to help a little bit but never completely. I felt mostly better for a few months last fall, and was able to have and enjoy a sexual relationship with my boyfriend at the time.

I attributed all of this to a mystery yeast infection that could not be detected by culture, as I had not yet been diagnosed with vulvadynia. Last winter I felt the burning intensely again and after a series of negative cultures and switching doctors finally was diagnosed with vestibulitis and put on gabapentin. It's been 3 months now and the gabapentin has not helped really, and I generally avoid putting anything down there other than Monistat anti-chafing gel (it's a silicone lubricant, not an anti-fungal).

Hopefully you're still reading Smile My question for all of you is, what is the range of normal discharge that you've experienced? I sometimes have weird discharge that often it just really looks like a yeast infection (white, granular or chunky, NOT smooth) and sometimes I get this clear, thick and stretchy but dry discharge... almost like a solid "gak" or something.

Anyway, I'd love to get your feedback, or comments on how the hell you stayed sane when everything is telling you this is a yeast infection, but your doctors and tests are saying no.

Your problem with the discharge I tend to get to mines not just in the vestibule either, I had constant burning and pain from even underwear for months.
I have tried all of treatments ; acupuncture, physio downstairs,antibiotics, yeast creams/tablets ect my symptoms have eased but sometimes pop up I was taking orally gapabentin which idk if it helped it must have at the time but recently weaned off to see if the excruciating pain returned tbh it just come and goes.. Also made me gain weight and be so clumsy tripping ect.... Iv never had hormones checked? All stds,sti's,yeast,blood work and only thing came back inflammation but the Dr's didn't know where:/... I hope you get some relief soon it's a horrible thing to go through xxx
