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 …

Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:44 pm by JGD13

Hi all i am new here.

He said this is …

-ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

As of now I am …

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 …

Welcome to the forum.

I went from having constant pain to only now having pain on contact which is an improvement but not cured. I think mine just settled after taking lyrica which is an anticonvulsant. I believe I need to now focus on my pelvic floor to sort the provoked pain as I also have vaginismus which is tight vaginal muscles making sex and smear tests painful.
Unfortunately at present I cannot afford a private physio but I am going to try again and find one on the NHS, not easy tho!
Although if you read through some of the posts a few ladies have said they have been cured by various means. I think Vulval pain has different causes for different people.

I hope you find our community supportive and helpful in your recovery journey.

Yes. I am completely cured. It wasn't by accident. Its a long story with a good ending and a baby! Wink just go to the 'vulvodynia info' forum and my post is titled 'cured from vulvodynia...'

There is hope! You might need to go out of your comfort zone and find a good 'woo woo' doctor! Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi senozs1,

Yes, I am completely cured and I had localised provoked vulvodynia. Do read my recent post 'PAIN FREE - VESTIBULODYNIA IN REMISSION'. Hopefully there are some similarities, and really don't give up hope that it can go away.

I have had this issue for a couple of years, although was only recently diagnosed. Seeing these posts of people completely cured of this problem gives me hope. Thank you all.

I'm pretty much cured from my provoked Vestibulodynia, besides some residual nerve pain (not much to be done about that, should diminish over time). I am able to live a normal life, ride bikes, have sex etc. Check out the link in my sig for my story if you haven't already seen it.

Good luck with your healing!!

I almost am cured by magnetic dilators my pt told me to get. Only hurts a little when I put them in, then it goes away.
