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 …

I feel depressed and hopeless...

Post  Guest on Mon Oct 05, 2015 5:23 pm

Hello everyone, I know I have written my story before but I wanted to write it again with a clear mind. I'm 23 years old and never had sex. I never had any pain until 7 or 8 months ago. I have been in extreme pain and I was diagnosed 2 months ago with VVS. I'm on Lyrica 75 mg in the morning and 150 mg in the evening. I haven't experienced much relief though I feel maybe only a little better.
My now-ex boyfriend was kissing me and I was in my underwear when I felt a severe pain after I felt his penis. And since then, I have been in a lot of pain. Because of other reasons we fought and broke up, and I have literally been crying every day for the last 8 months thinking how he ruined my life causing me this pain. I know that I have to keep a positive attitude and believe that VVS will be cured but the pain doesn't allow me.
Is it true that VVS happens to some of us but is hiding and when something triggers it, it just happens? Excuse my English please because I'm not from USA or UK.
What I want to know is if I'm right that it is he who caused me this?
I feel so depressed and futureless. Does this ever go away?

yes it will go away, but not likely on its own. You need to fix it. Best solution? research, research, research, research. You will find YOUR OWN CURE that way. I did. Took me a few months but I found out that I had too much oxalate in my body and that I needed to exercise. I take calcium citrate pills now and don't eat spinach anymore. I used to have that stuff like three times a day every day.

Your ex-boyfriend did not cause you to have this pain, he only helped you discover that you have pain. I never knew something was wrong with me until I attempted to have sex for the first time. It hurt so bad that I knew if sex felt that way then no one would be doing it. I agree with "EverythingIsDifferentNow," that you should do your research. Before doing anything on your own, consult your doctor! Also, try finding a vulvar specialist or a good gynecologist who will listen to you. A lot of the time, women like us get written off from doctors because this disorder is so rare. I don't know what country you are from, but from what I've read on here in the past, it's hard to find a specialist outside of the U.S.A. You could also try going to a women's health specialist.

Again, don't try anything on your own until you've gotten the O.K from a doctor. It's really important to talk to a specialist before doing things on your own. This disorder is a delicate one and can be thrown off kilter very easily, making it worse than ever. Don't blame your ex-boyfriend. I know it's hard not to when after trying to "be with him" you started to feel pain. Try to stay positive because there is relief for everyone. We all have different ways of managing this awful disorder. Keep your head up and know that yo have a community of people here to support you.
