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

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25


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


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 …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

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 …

Can A Cut In Vestibule cause Vulvodynia?

Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:07 am by rockylife

Can a cut in the vestibule area cause vulvodynia? Is it possible that some nerve a were damaged that’s why I feel this pain in my area without visible lesions?

Go down


Post  mrs.optimistic on Tue May 19, 2015 4:53 pm

Is it just me or does anyone have a problem shaving down there? I go a month before I can even consider shaving, sometimes longer. I use expensive shaving cream/razors and they work well on the rest of my body just not my pubic area. When I shave I feel more prone to nicks or cuts, razor burn, swelling/pain and burning. It takes a day or two before i feel right again. Before I had vulvodynia I had ZERO problems with shaving! No, I can't try waxing- I've done it before and the symptoms are way worst. Did you give up on shaving??

I seem to have more burning. I just try not to apply as much pressure as when I used to shave. I used to be rather careless with the way I shaved and I didn't have any problems. But now I shave myself with a very meticulous hand. I try not to go over my skin more than I need to. I wait as long as I can between shaves. It seems to help, but I think ultimately not shaving is the only way to completely stop the irritation.

My gyn told me that some women's vagina are allergic to razors. I had similar problems when i was shaving down there. Now i am just having laser treatments! My skin down there is so smooth and it takes 3 months for the hair to grow! Laser treatment is not cheap, especially in UK, but believe me, you need only 6 sessions to get rid of all pubic hair!
