I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

Diagnosed Recently

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 …

New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

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 …

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 …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

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 …

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

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 …

I am new here and hope to gain some insight into my vulva pain. I suffered for a long time not realizing that there are ways to feel better. I saw the Dr. yesterday and I am starting P/T pelvic and valium suppositories. queen

New here- my story

Post  MelisaD on Wed Apr 20, 2016 6:25 pm

Hi all,

I'm 28, from Australia. I've been diagnosed with crappy condition for 5 years but I suspect I've been suffering for much longer. I'm too sure what triggered it in the beginning. When I was initially diagnosed it was a continuous pain, anything and everything would aggravate it, but after taking endep it reliever it to a point where only provoked pain through sex or examination.
I've been with my husband the same amount of time, it's been such a struggle, since he was my first everything.
I decided to come off endep as I felt like it had plateaued and started gabapentin but that hasn't helped at all.
Ive seen my specialist and all they want me to do is do my physio.
Just feeling quite down at the moment. Has anyone become pain free completely from physio?
My husband wants me to get the operation, but I'm a bit scared it'll be botched and won't even help.

Hi! I'm sorry to hear you've been suffering with this condition for so long. I'm not currently receiving physical therapy, but my specialist did tell me I would have to do home dialator therapy once my symptoms have calmed down a bit. So unfortunately I can't comment on PT myself, but I've heard it works wonders for some women. You can try searching this site to read through what women have said about it Smile

Surgery is an extremely serious decision that, obviously, shouldn't be taken lightly. If you do choose that route, I hope you do it for YOU, not anyone else. I hope you find relief!

Thanks for the reply. I'll have a look through and see if anyone has had success with just dilators

I'm improving a lot with physio (including dilators) and taking duloxetine. It's not a quick fix, but well worth trying physio.

Can I ask where in Australia you are located? I'm in Melbourne and after visiting several unhelpful GPs/Family Planning I've decided to bite the bullet and try and get a referral to the Royal Women's. I know of a few physios that specialise in pelvic pain but I think they tend to focus more on vaginismus than vulvodynia - either way feel free to message me if you want to talk about anything.

Hi I'm from Melbourne. I do get seen at the Royal women's. The physios and sexual counsellor are lovely there, though the vulvar derm doctors (consultant in particular) are idiots in my opinion.
Yes I agree they concentrate too much on vaginismus. Thank you so much for the offer.
I'm feeling a bit better seeing all the lovely comments
