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 …

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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 …

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

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 …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Lidocaine and Conception??

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

LIDOCAINE AND CONCEPTION??

Post  netsirk83 on Sun May 29, 2016 11:01 am

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.
