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 …

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, …

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 …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Vulvodynia/vestibulectomy

Post  Hfronckowiak on Fri Jun 26, 2015 6:02 pm

This is my first post. I never really opened up about having vulvodynia because I was so embarressd by it. I think I just need some support from someone who understands what its like to have this condition.
My problems started 5 years ago when I first started having sex. It was painful everytime and wasn't getting any better. The first doctor I went to told me there was nothing wrong with me and it was all in my head. I got my diagnosis from the second doctor I saw. In the end I ended uo at 5 different doctors to get to where I am today. I tried every medicine and procedure for this condition with no success. Two months ago my doctor said the only thing left to do is to have a vestibulectomy. This scared me a lot. To think this is the only option I have left to get a shot at a pain free life. And I never had surgery before so I didnt know what to expect.
Yesterday I had the surgery. They put a nerve block in so I didnt feel much of anything until this morning. Yes, its painful and the amount of blood that was coming out was a but scary. I took two percocets which helped with the pain but I feel dizzy. I'm praying this to be a success in the end. I've been so depressed for 5 years and I just want a pain free happy life.

I hope the surgery works for you and I hope you have a speedy recovery. I had the surgery in January so I know how nervous and anxious you must feel, it was my first surgery too. I had my second on Monday. Let me know if you have any questions but all the best for your recovery and the rest of your pain free life hopefully! Xx

good luck with your recovery! I was lucky with mine, it hardly hurt at all following the surgery, but it did not get rid of my problem. the main bit of advice i could give you is once you've healed more, massage the scar tissue with oil to keep the skin supple.

Does it look any different down there? I tried looking at it today and i couldnt see much, but theres something poking out that looks weird. The pain was pretty bad earlier but i took some painkillers and slept all day. Its at the stage where it feels like it will never get better

I didn't really experience any pain, I think I was quite lucky! I wouldn't judge anything until you have your stitches out. I looked at mine the day after, it was every colour you could imagine, swollen and bruised. From how it looked then, to how it looks now you'd think it was a different vagina all together.
My vagina does look different, but I think it looks better to how it used to but that's my personal opinion- my boyfriend says he wouldn't know I'd off had surgery down there if he never knew I'd had it.

I had to have a second surgery to remove my paraurethral glands, there the glands either side of the urethra because I was still experiencing burning from that area but so far so good Smile.

Hey, I see you got your surgery 2 months ago… how are you feeling?
I just wanted to add my experience.. I suffered for a couple of years until I finally had surgery (about 3 years ago I think).. it really takes a couple months to know if it worked.. it worked for me, but I still had a little bit of pain.. then i started doing physical therapy and that's what made me pain free! She showed me how to massage the little scar I had and that was very helpful. Anyway, I think the combination of surgery and PT is perfect! I've been pretty much pain free since then, the only exceptions being a couple of sex positions.. I hope you get to be pain free too!!
