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 …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Hey everyone,

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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 …

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

Lidocaine and Conception??

Post  MrsP87 on Wed Sep 16, 2015 5:25 pm

Hi everybody,

Just after a little advice and I feel this may be the best place to find my answers. I have suffered with vulvodynia for many years now and can only have intercourse using lidocaine gel, it's incredibly painful without! Me and my husband are wanting to start a family but are very worried about the impact lidocaine may have on conception! There are no studies out there regarding its impact on sperm and I have recently been to a doctor and a specialist who said they didn't know the answer. Has anybody out there been successful in using lidocaine and conceiving? Thanks so much xxxx I love you

Hey MrsP87, Did you happen to determine if Lidocaine is ok when trying to conceive? Have you had luck conceiving naturally and painlessly? We are about to start trying as well and I am currently using instillagel so you're input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Smile

I can't answer your question directly, but I've been doing some research on this topic and the effect of lubricants. One of the things that I've discovered is that most lubricants have a negative effect on sperm motility. So, while not contraceptives, they can reduce the chances of conception. I'd imagine instillagel may also have a negative effect on sperm motility, depending on how much of the gel finds its way internally.

I was able to find the below, but I'm not sure if this is only specific to injections:

Effect While Trying to Conceive: Lidocaine is not shown to have any effect on fertility in animal studies. No human studies have been completed.


I agree with PainBlogger that the cream itself may negatively impact sperm since even something as innocent as the wrong pH can negatively impact them. I personally say give it a try with the lidocaine, and if you are finding it difficult to conceive, then consider trying without it if possible.
