Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

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 …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

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.

-Jen
