I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

    Hi All,

    I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

    So this is my story:-

    I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

    Hi everyone,

    About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

    Hi All,

    I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

    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 lovely gals!

    I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

    I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

    Is it down to anatomy?

    Post  Gilli on Wed Jul 01, 2015 5:43 am

    Ive been wondering if my anatomy is causing my problem. Sorry if this is too graphic but my labia are on the larger size. Am I getting thrush infections because there is just too much skin down there creating a moist warm environment for candida to thrive, in turn causing my vulvodynia? Would a labioplasty be the answer? I'm not really worried how it looks but if it could help stop the pain I think I would consider it.

    Does anyone else think the same?

    I have barley any labia, I never before having a vestibulectomy and I have half off what I had before the surgery and I still suffer badly with thrush. Sad
    It may be the case for you though, if you feel like it could I'd defo look into it.

    Thank you for sharing, I'm sorry it didn't make thrush problems better for you. I'm going to try taking coconut oil next I've read a couple of posts on here that recommend it and it can't do any harm right?

    I have seen on Embarassing Bodies TV where women have had their inner labia prodtruding past the outter and have had labiaplasty due to candidal infections. Maybe they have some info about it? It is worth discussing with a good specialist if you are concerned, if it is causing you issues with friction it can't be helping!

    Yes I think I saw the same one. Found some info that the nhs will only do a labiaplasty if labia are 4cm, I'm not that bad. I will defo ask the vulval specialist I see in a few weeks what they think.
