Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

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 …

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 …

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.
