Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

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 …

pudental neuralgia. HELP :(

Post  sailor_moon on Wed Dec 02, 2015 10:43 am

OK so I think I definitely now have some form of pudental neuralgia....I am now experiencing the most nerve like pain EVER. In 2 weeks I can now not sit down without pain going from my left vestibule/butt cheek area that feels like someone digging in their thumb really really hard..and it radiates down my leg. It is virtually constant but 10X worse when I sit. Along with my usual itching and burning. I am not overweight so this is not the cause. I believe the cause is from being forced to lift things at work that are too heavy [yes, forced, if i don't do it i risk losing my job which means losing my home!I live in a small town with very limited employment ] and perhaps from exercise as I used to be extremely fit and was when all this started.

This pain has graduallly gotten worse over time and has always been dismissed.....great, thanks doctors, due to your negligence I now have an even greater chance of permanent pain that can't be fixed. All at 27 years of age [this has ruined my life since I was 25]

The more I read the more I realise how hard it is to treat. I bought a doughnut cushion that does virtually sweet F.A and am trying to avoid sitting....hard when I travel 1/2 hour to work each way and suffer chronic fatigue and exhaustion.

I was on Lyrica for 6 months which did nothing.

My specialist is away til Jan. He suspected pudental neuralgia but because I have had so many other problems [endometriosis, PCOS, candida, low estrogen, pH imbalance, chronic gastritis] so he could not diagnose it without ruling out everything else. I am going to my GP in 4 days but I don't know what he can do besides scans which probably won't show anything.

Anyone else suffer from PN or similar? Any advice? I don't know any successful treatments besides surgery, and being in australia hardly anyone knows much about this problem Sad
