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.

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 …

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 …

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
