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 …

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 …

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

Had this for 5 years, looking for people who understand

Sat Oct 06, 2018 9:46 pm by blackberrie

Hey all. I'm really struggling to find anyone in real life who can really understand what I'm going through. I've had vestibulodynia for 5 years now and I'm single. Obviously it has completely affected how I approach dating and sex and the fact that I can't really talk to people irl about it has made me feel very lonely. I've found that a lot of the women who have this problem are married and …

Anyone have pain with urination?

Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:35 pm by mertzwl

Hi everyone - I can't believe I've been dealing with this for almost 10 years and an appointment scheduler at a urogyn office is the one to suggest I look into vulvodynia. Honestly, I don't care, I just thankful I might have an answer.

I have pain in one specific spot right around the urethral opening so it always coincides with urinating (it's not a uti). Does anyone else deal with pain …

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 …

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 …

6 year sufferer but I’ve found some hope

Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:33 am by Npage14

Hey, ladies! I’m new to this support group, I’ve thought about doing something like this for a while so I wanted to try this out! I’ve had vulvodynia for 6 years now, I am self diagnosed. I’m 20 now and the pain started when I had my first encounter with sexual contact when I was 14(I still remained a virgin though it was fingering). For a couple years the pain was so bad I could hardly …

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 …

Real answer on why this women prefered a male gyneacologist...

Real answer on why this women prefered a male gyneacologist...

Post  Sebby (Admin) on Mon Jan 24, 2011 9:58 pm

Im copying and pasting this womens answers from a forum...

"I've asked it once and I'll ask it again...WHY? I'm working on some marketing materials for some of our docs and I just can't fathom why a man would want to become an OB/Gyn. They don't even have the same organs...how effective can they really be as docs who focus on the health of those same organs and structures?"

"I much prefer a male gynacologist to look at my bits than a female gynacologist"

"really? eek do you mind if i ask why? i could never fathom having a male gyno; it'd freak me out too much"

"Sorry I posted but my comp froze and I lost my reply..
My doc was my gyno at the same time when I was at uni and he used to sing to me when he was up there checking my fruity bits..
a woman doc/gyno has never sung to me when doing that shit..
and for me I just think its more normal for a man to look at a womans bits than a woman"

"Did he do requests?"

"He used to sing opera when he looked at my bits.. he said it made him happy.. both looking at my innards and singing"

Men only please!!

Post  Char29 on Fri Oct 05, 2012 8:29 am

My theory on this is :
I have had both Ob/gyn and Specialists of all sorts and to be honest, I much prefer men!
I have found that women in general are a lot rougher than men. It is as if they cannot imagine the pain that we are going through because they are all "normal".
Men on the other hand, have no idea what it is like to have our bits, never mind bits that are on fire, so they are generally more gentle.
In fact I have had some really ignorant women doctors and nurses say some really hurtful things too.
One female doc in Barbados (I was working on ships at the time), hurt me so badly that I could not sit down for 2 days!!
Most recently I went to the Sex Clinic to supposedly see the guru on vulvas and she was hurting me so badly and not letting me go! She wanted me to put a number to the pain! I could hardly breathe or talk never mind put a number to the pain!!
I was referred to a great male specialist in this field after that, and he was uber gentle. However he would not carry on with the "treatment" as he felt I was too inflamed (it all looked normal to me as I have had this my whole life).
Needless to say I have not been back to any doctor!! Have hit a wall!!!
Sorry - that was me going off on a tangent - I only joined this forum today and this is all just flowing out of me!!! Never been able to "talk" to anyone who totally gets it!!
