An absolute success story- please read!

Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:57 pm by Persevere1990

Dear All,

I posted on here back in March 2017 having just got a diagnosis of vulvodynia after a few months of relentless and acute pain. I was desperate, I was hurting, I was scared I would never know life without pain there again.

I tried creams, acupuncture, numbing gels, frozen pads, baths with various internet recommended concoctions- convinced myself I had lichen sclerosus, herpes, thrush- …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

PLEASE PLEASE WATCH THIS AND FLOOD the video producers with comments. I have already reported this video to the NVA. We need to stand up for ourselves.

I don't know where else to post this.

But please please watch and write back to them.

Contact the press coordinators, snail mail, and comment on the website.

If we don't stand up for ourselves, who will? We have power in our numbers.

I already have written to them and contacted the NVA.

Talking points: vulvodynia is not a rare condition. it affects 18 percent of women. the male anchor on the program's comments are despicable and cruel. Where he gets the percentage 99 percent of men will not date a woman with V? We all know that is false.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION. I will continue to post and update.

I am very upset that no one is replying to this message. When I searched for dating if you can't have sex, the above video was the only thing that came up.

This video would throw any girl into a deep depression. We must work to get it removed.

We must do something. Write to the NVA. www.NVA.org

I'm a little confused by why you are so upset with this video. I watched it and felt that it was an open, honest, and sympathetic discussion.

The male anchor openly said that he was using made up numbers when he was referring to the percentage of men who HE believed would be turned off by the idea of never having penetrative sex again. Although it is horrible to think that this is reality, I do agree that the majority of men wouldn't choose to be in that situation. HOWEVER, there are great men out there that would find other forms of intimacy fulfilling. For women in our situation, we will have to work harder to find these men and to be creative intimately.

I found nothing offensive about the video. I feel the female anchor did the best job she could pointing out that the person they were discussing COULD be intimate in other ways and that she did find a caring man in the end.

Personally, I'm thrilled it was talked about at all. If we want this condition to get more recognition, we have to be open to all forms of discussions on the topic, and I felt this was very appropriate for the first video I've seen where it isn't being discussed by medical professionals.

As a long-term sufferer of vulvodynia and vaginismus, having been in a relationship as well as now being a single person living with this, I had mixed feelings about this show.

I feel it's important that growth in awareness is happening. I really felt alone and unable to cope with my diagnosis so if more light can be put onto vulvodynia then hoorah! New sufferers will have more understanding and as a publicly recognised condition hopefully it will gain more attention and research.

I felt the presenters discussed their initial reactions with limited information in an honest way.
But it really was a very narrow view and there are much better and more informative and well balanced ways to enlighten society of this condition.

This was not so helpful to instill hope in current sufferers... But at least when you visit the doctor, they might actually have heard of vulvodynia now!!
