Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

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 …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

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 …

Prolo/Neural Therapy (Lidocaine Injections)

Post  web96 on Thu Sep 24, 2015 7:45 am

Hi Ladies!

I am wondering if any of you have experience or advice pertaining to Prolotherapy/Neural Therapy?

I have seen about a 90% decrease in pain over the past months (my full story link in my sig), and happily continue to use my natural sulphate free bathing products (faithfully packing them with me on all trips!). But I still currently have some burning discomfort during sex or pressure to the vestibule area. Now that the source of irritation is gone, I appear to be left with a residual nerve pain (allodynia), as the name Provoked Vestibulodynia or Vulvodynia might suggests.

So, I am planning on undergoing Prolotherapy/Neural Therapy with a Naturopathic Doctor, that is, injections of a Dextrose Solution with Lidocaine over the next few months as a final treatment to this problem. In treating this now as chronic nerve pain, I am feeling quite hopeful!

Lidocaine injections

Post  let's kick this on Thu Apr 07, 2016 10:54 pm

Do you have to get a referral for that? And what kind of doctor will do them?

There is apparently a naturopathic Dr. in my town that does it but her waitlist is months long and so I haven't gotten in yet. I'm going to broach the topic again with my gyno when I see him next month. He said last time that he only does it in 'severe' cases. I think he uses Botox. My pain is no longer severe but it sometimes still causes a burning pain during sex, which ruins it, if the area is directly provoked. Also, when I get a period (infrequent, due to my IUD) the moisture really irritates the area and can make it uncomfortable to sit, like a burning feeling.
