Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

New here - Questions

Hello ladies ! Well, an acquaintance of mine oriented me to this site, and I'm very glad I found it.
I am questioning myself as far as if I may have vulvodynia, and maybe you guys can help me. I know you're not doctors, and therefore can'T give me a diagnosis but you might be able to help regardless.

A few weeks ago, I started having burning sensations after sex. I thought at first it was yeast, so I bought the oral one dose tablet, and called it a day. The problem is, when I had sex again, OMG, it burned so much during sex and after, it was even worse. It burns in the whole vulva, it is swollen, and it burns all the way to inside the vagina. No problem having sex though it gets very uncomfortable. After, when I pee, it's like someone is pouring acid out of me. It is excruciating. I still had some discharges, so I decided to buy the local cream treatment, as I thought it still may be yeast. The burning calmed down, and I thought it was all good. So this morning, I had sex again. And the crazy pain came back. Now, I no longer have discharges, but my whole vulva is so red and sore and swollen and I'm burning inside and when I pee. It didn't hurt THAT much during sex but definitely was way uncomfortable and wanted him to finish. I saw 2 doctors, and none of them were able to help me.

I would like to have you ladies's input.

Thanks in advance !

Hi there,

Welcome to the forum! There are lots of lovely ladies on here to offer advice, wish it was more active though.

When you treated yourself for thrush did the symptoms completely go away until the next time you had sex? Or did you still experience symptoms?

Also, what did your discharge look like?Thick,watery,white,clear,yellow, sticky?

Have you had a urine sample checked for infection?

Hi ! Sorry for the delay ! No, when I got treated for thrush, the symptoms didn't go away. I no longer have discharges, just pain with intercourse. They were more like residues than discharges, but I remember having that while having thrush in the past. They were white and sometimes greyish. I also have Lichen Sclerosis, which can provoke symptoms, but never inside the vagina. So, sexwise, what happens in more details is...at the beginning it's ok, but after a while, it starts burning inside, and when he finishes, it burns outside too, and hurts to pee -__-. I also noticed some incomfort with tampons, and a slight burning sensation, even when I don't have sex for a week or 2. I've had plenty of UTI's and thrush infections, and it is nothing like that. I had sex yesterday after 3 weeks of abstinence yesterday, and the same thing happened. It was enjoyable at first, and then started to get uncomfortable. The pain is worse after though. It's like all of my vagina swells and I can't pee right after. Then, it gets progressively better until say 24 hours later, and almost no pain left... Saw a obgyn and she treated me for thrush AGAIN. I mean... Ugh. Can anyone provide advice ? Thanks in advance Smile

I'm not a doctor, but urethral inflammation could be a possibility given the difficulty in urinating. Do you think maybe what you're perceiving as vaginal pain could be urethral? Everything is close together down there. I know I sometimes have difficulty pinpointing the source of my pain.

You mean a UTI ? I've had plenty and none provoked that kind of pain. Pain is inside the vagina and also all over the vulva; it becomes swollen, very red and raw after sex. No UTI has ever given me those symptoms. I wish that's what it was though. I wish it's something else that's curable... :/

You're right, a UTI would not likely cause swelling and redness to the vulva. I just mentioned it as my physio/PT said she thought I had urethral inflammation after an examination, but I had no infection there at the time. So it is possible to have inflammation without an active infection. Sorry I can't be more help.
