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 …

Young in pain

Post  Future.Gyno on Sat Oct 03, 2015 11:09 pm

So I've been dealing with this anxiety about my probpems for a while, and I decided to share with people who will actually understand. I was just diagnosed with vulvodynia this summer. My gynecologist also suspects I have endometriosis. At twenty years old, I sometimes feel hopeless. I've been with my boyfriend for three and a half years, and for about the last two, we've been sexually "active." I've never been able to have sex with him successfully. Although he is patient and understanding, I have so much anxiety about it. How long will he be patient? If i don't find a magic cure, will he give up on me? And will i ever get to know what sex is really supposed to feel like? I talk about it with him sometimes, but he always tells me i should see if using my dilator will help. The thought of even using it makes me uncomfortable, and now that i know what the problem is, i don't even think it would help. But he's convinced, and he doesn't want me in pain so he keeps bringing it up. I feel like no matter what I'm going to always be in pain and always have this anxiety. I feel like I'm too young to be having these kinds of problems with sex. I just want us both to be happy, but i feel like this will always be a problem. Well at least if i do end up alone, I'll have an awesome career as an ob/gyn to focus on.

Don't give up on getting better. You're so young, and you never know, gently trying some of the suggestions you may find it helps. The most important thing is to try and relax. And talk to your boyfriend. You've been together a while, so tell him your fears. He doesn't have the chance to show you he's sticking around if you don't give him the opportunity to be there for you when you're feeling like this. Remember how brave you are, having gone to the doctors and sought help. Try and take some small steps. You never know, it could resolve quote quickly with the right approach. Not everyone who has this pain condition has it long term. It varies in each case. Stay strong.

To me the thought of using a dilator just sounds like it'll hurt like hell as well. I know it works for some, but if your not comfortable trying it, it's likely going to cause more pain than good due to constricted muscles from anxiety of it.

As a less scary option, I find that sitz baths with epsom salt are extremely helpful, but I always make sure to dry thoroughly afterwards, with a hairdryer even. Self massage down there can also be very helpful, and can have a similar effect as a dilator if done well.

Good luck!
