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 …

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 …

Finally got a chance to read the article...makes me kind of want to try the Pudendal Nerve Perineural Injections, and Pelvic Floor Muscle Injections. It's also really scary to think about, a needle down there? pale But hey, I'm used to excruciating pain down there anyway. I wonder if anywhere offers something like that around where I live? I will have to ask my physical therapist.

Hey Sara,

There is a woman on another forum who is having the nerve block injections and they are working! She's in Canada. She gives a really great description of the process some of them go in around the butt crack.. it's lidocaine and she applies that topically as well. I'll see if I can find the relevant posts as she's giving updates every few weeks. Her specialist sounds amazing.

There is also a physical therapist on that forum who gives advice. Which is great as well. We should get one of those Smile

I've been thinking about the pudendal nerve recently too, but a block doesn't last unless the tissue that's irritating it is released so pelvic floor, external hip rotators etc. The information I read about it said it goes in at the bottom of the buttocks, fairly close to the vulva itself and the doctor puts one hand inside the vagina (well a few fingers, not a whole hand!) to guide the needle. Are you sure you're not thinking genitofemoral or ilioinguinal nerve Sebby? I'm sure I've never seen anything about pudendal nerve blocks going into the back. Question

Dilators helped me so much

Post  Sandra4372 on Wed Sep 14, 2016 1:05 am

Hi Ladies,

Just here to let you now a little about my story. I was diagnosed six months ago by a pelvic pt. We have done many helpful stretches and she taught me exercises. I'm not sure what caused my pain, but it is only during sex. My pelvic floor physical therapist use dilators in the office to size me, so I could buy some for home. She told me to use the dilators with magnets because her patients were having more success with them.

I bought some VuVa brand dilators after she sized me in the office. They basically saved my sex life. If I use them right before intercourse because that it was she told me to do, I really don't feel any pain during sex.

It hurts when I put the dilator in first, then it stops after a couple minutes. Would like to share this treatment with you because it helped me so much.  

Have a good night everyone. Sandra
