What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

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 …

Has anyone diagnosed with Vulvodynia also have Urethral sensations after voiding?

Post  JS007 on Mon Nov 16, 2015 4:43 pm

Hi, I have been suffering with what appears to be Vulvodynia after 5 months of not knowing what is going on down there. I am currently on Amitryptiline 30mg, started on 10mg. I have been referred to GYNO (NHS) and am back for another appointment with them in due course. The symptons at the start seemed to be urinary - felt like I needed the toilet more often? funny sensations down there after going to the toilet, initially felt like pelvic muscles would not settle down afterwards. like many of you the GP thought it was lots of different things including Overactive Bladder, UTI and even thrush! I have had the aching, burning sensation, soreness - but no visible signs of anything. I would be keen to know if any one has experienced the discomfort with Vulvodynia and the Urethral opening - especially the funny sensation after voiding? thanks!

Yes, a lot of my pain seems to be urethral in origin and triggered by voiding. My problems started with a concurrent UTI and thrush last year and although the infections are long gone, I've not been right since. I also have trouble with bladder emptying. It does empty fully, but not in one continuous stream so I have to stay on the toilet for a few minutes to make sure it's all emptied. I get days where I feel like I need to pass urine very frequently although I am able to hold it because sometimes I know there can't possibly be much urine to empty. I get pelvic floor muscle pain and the muscles are hypertonic. I'm currently on duloxetine for it and having acupuncture. I had quite a few sessions of physio and that did help reduce the frequency that I need to void my bladder.

Hi JS007

My problems started in Nov 2014, with a UTI, then it felt like it was still there even though samples came back negative. After about 3 weeks of feeling like I still had it and courses of antibiotics etc I then developed burning and soreness on my vulva.

I got put on Amitriptyline initially by the GP but by Feb of this year and increasing to 60mgs she decided to refer me to a Gynaecologist. I saw him that month and by then the burning had subsided but I had pelvic discomfort, urethral discomfort and soreness in the vulva. He wanted me to reduce the Amitriptyline and start Lyrica/Pregabalin at 150mgs a day. By April I was still having urethral discomfort and a feeling in my urethra like I still needed to pee even after going. He decided to take me into hospital and do a biopsy of the vulval tissue and a urethral rigid Cystocopy and dilatation. This did help so maybe it needed stretching a bit!

However, I have had many weeks in between where I have had no V paid at all and it's been amazing and then for no reason it starts up again, which is depressing! I'm in a flare again right now! My Gyni now isn't sure it's Vulvodynia anymore so I'm feeling very lost and will be ringing my GP tomorrow to discuss it! I'm still on Amitriptyline and Lyrica, although I did try and reduce the Lyrica as if gone upto 225mgs for about 6 weeks before getting bad fatigue, foggy head, headaches, back tension etc! We thought it might've been the Lyrica and although those things got better my soreness is bad again! Oh what to do!

So sorry it's long winded Hun.
