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 …

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 …

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 …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Post Vestibulectomy Vulva Pain?

Post Vestibulectomy Vulva Pain?

Post  ehesser on Sat Jul 16, 2016 3:07 am

Hi Everyone,

I had a vestibulectomy (with vaginal advancement) 4 weeks ago, and last week I developed new pain not associated with the surgical site on the right side of my labia minora. My recovery was going so well and then this burning, stinging, throbbing pain developed and I've had it for a week now. Has anyone experienced this post surgery? Is this temporary or here to stay? The pain spot seems inconsistent too, like there's sensitivity on my clit and left side of labia as well.. in the past week I've been using hydrocortisone cream and have been soaking in warm bathes abs have tried acupuncture. I feel as though my pain went from a 9 to an annoying 3, which seems like improvement but it worries me as I haven't had this kind of pain before so I don't know if it's temporary irritation or if I traded in my provoked vestibular pain for now unprovoked vulva pain?! I'm scared. Anyone one else experience the during healing process? Does it go away? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi ehesser,

I've never personally had the surgery, but I've read posts from other women on here that have said it takes MANY months to heal (like 4+). I can't remember which post it was, but there was at least one lady talking about her pain being far worse until about 6 months after her surgery. Do a search on this forum and read some of the surgery experience posts (unfortunately this forum isn't really very active anymore).

I hope your new symptoms subside and you fully heal quickly Very Happy

Re: Post Vestibulectomy Vulva Pain?

Post  PelvicStrong on Sat Sep 03, 2016 7:02 pm

Hi, I had the vestibulectomy done on the 12th of August and I'm 3 weeks into recovery.

My doctor took out the stitches yesterday which was very painful and I just can't resist to look at it today. There's a really ugly growth on the surgical area. My doctor said that there's some swelling because of the stitches. It just looks and feels like scar tissues to me. I have minor hypertrophic scars from my laparascopy but my doctor said that the tissue on the skin is different than the mucosa skin on the vestibule so I shouldn't form those hypertrophic scars when it's healed. I'm wondering if you experienced the same thing?

Another thing I'm also a bit concerned about is that he did a very partial vestibulectomy, only the lower and the most painful part of the vestibules were removed. I still had some redness and a bit of stinging on the upper part but it's nothing compared to the 6 o'clock location. Those minor stings and redness were always there but went away when I used Valium suppositories for pelvic floor muscle spasms. I read the book "When Sex Hurts", Dr. Goldenstein suggested to do a full vestibulectomy just in case so the pain doesn't get worst going to the remnant vestibules but everyone's different and my doctor did a q-tip test b4 he started surgery so I guess the pain scale I evaluated made him determine which needs to be removed. Not sure if this is what ou experienced or any of you had the same experience? I'm a bit worried too honestly but nothing we can do right now.

vestibulectomy

What was your results of the vulva biopsy? What was the main reason for your biopsy? Do they numb you?

I had a nasty yeast infection after my surgery that I flipped out about, but that's all it was. Maybe its something along those lines?
