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 …

New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

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 …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

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 …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

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 …

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!
