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 …

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 …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

Vulvovagional pain from scented toilet paper

Post  jen007 on Tue Nov 03, 2015 6:28 pm

Hi Ladies,

I wanted to see if anyone has ever had experience with vagional pain caused by scented toilet paper or any scented products that affected your area.

I have been experiencing the new pain that I had thought was a yeast infection, but ended up not being one. My doctor had asked me if I had switched toilet papers or anything like that. At the time I said no, because I hadn't... at home anyway. I started working a new job a little over a month ago, which is when this new pain had started for me. Wondering why I had this pain it came to me to check the toilet paper at my job. Turns out it is a scented and quilted toilet paper. The timeline made sense amongst other things.

So, has anyone else had an issue similar to this? If so, how long did it take to go away?

Hope everyone is doing well and staying strong!

-Jen

Hello Jen, Scented products can cause all sorts of problems from burning sensation to yeast infections. Its a good idea to cut out all scented products that you use in that area including body wash and butt wipes. Also change your laundry detergent to non scented and no dyes and don't bleach your undies. This should help the problem. This may sound like a pain in the butt but I would bring my own t.p. to work.

Hopefully this helps hun. Take care.

I avoid all scented products in that area since my problems started. As BpCookie says, it's probably best to keep some unscented toilet paper with you in your bag to use at work or in public toilets. Your employer probably thinks they are treating the employees to some bathroom luxury, but, in reality, it's not doing you and possibly others any favours.

Thanks for the replies ladies! I stopped using the toilet paper at my work last week and started bringing in my own. I'm still feeling a bit of burning, but nothing like before. It's slowly but surely going away! I've never had such a reaction to something like that down there. My doctor and myself included thought my V had come back! Crazy how painful an allergic reaction can be. Can't wait for the rest of the irritation to go away!

Thanks again!
