Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

My almost 4 year old was diagnosed today

Post  HazelsMum on Mon Aug 01, 2016 11:50 am

Hello

This morning my daughter was diagnosed with Vulvodynia. She has been suffering pain since she was 18months and it has taken over two years to get referred to a paediatrician who diagnosed her.

Her symptoms have been intense pain, normally at night. Now she is older she can tell us about it and she says she feels like her 'front bottom's is on fire. She is SO SO distressed when happens. Nothing consoles her. It is really upsetting for anyone who is with her as well, my poor dad was babysitting during one epidode and had to be talked out of calling an ambulance.

Whilst she has had some pain in the day, it normally only occurs at night. Her only relief is a cold pack between her legs, but that only helps a bit. Our GP ruled out UTI, thread worms and thrush.

The paediatrician this morning told me that she was very likely to grow out of it but to come back if it gets worse. I left feeling really reassured until I came home and Googled Vulvodynia....nowhere mentions growing out of it. I am really worried for my daughter now and her future well-being and relationships.

Does anyone have experience of very young children diagnosed with this?

I'm sure you've ruled out irritants, but I wanted to throw it out there just to be sure. Below are some of the top ones that come to mind, and just remember, it can take months or years for a reaction to show. So don't rule out things you've been using on her for a long time.

- Wipes: I was using flushable wipes for MANY years before I started to have a reaction to them. If you're using them on your daughter, it may be a really good idea to stop for a month or so to see if things improve.

- Laundry Stuff: Detergents, dryer sheets, fabric softeners, etc. Even the ones that say they are "gentle" contain tons of chemicals. Check out this website for the ratings of common laundry products: http://www.ewg.org/guides/subcategories/49-LaundryDetergentHE

- New Clothing: I have an allergy to unwashed new clothing where I break out into a bodysuit-type rash if I even brush up against unwashed clothing. I now need to wash my clothes at least 3 times before wearing them.

- Bath Products: Shampoo/conditioner, soap, body wash, bubble bath, etc.


I'm sorry your daughter is going through this, and I hope she finds relief soon.

Thanks for replying. My daughter has quite bad eczema so we are already pretty carefully with detergents chemicals in the house. She has special soaps etc in the bath. We've found no relationship between what's she's done during the day .(swimming, bath, what's she's eaten) and when she has an episode. It is so frustrating. I really want to be able to pin it on a particular trigger but haven't been able to identify one.

My reactions didn't show themselves for maybe 24-72 hours after coming into contact with the irritant. So make sure to be expanding your daughter's symptom journal to things that she's come into contact with the last 3 days or so since chemicals have a sneaky way of hanging out in the body for a little bit before setting off a reaction.

It sounds like you've already done all this, and I'm sorry if I'm telling you things you already know. I just know how frustrating allergies can be since it took me so many years to identify my triggers because they were never as "obvious" as doctors and the internet made them sound like they should be  Wink

How did the doctor rule out worms?

I ask because there is an old thread on another site about children having pain, mostly at night. Once the lights are out. Many of them did the "tape" test and was negative but persisted and were able to see a worm. Apparently, they come from the rear but move up into the vagina as well and that's where the pain is. Some would wait until their children fell asleep and then flick on the light and do a quick check but others said to wait until they are sleep, use a flashlight and look because the light makes the worms pull back in so you won't see them.

Their descriptions of their children's symptoms sounded like yours. Some even had it for years.

It was also suggested to try a worm medication anyway just to be sure. These girls were in pain but once they treated for worms, they were fine.

I'm not sure if we can post off site links. If we can, then I will post it so you can read about it.

If not vulvodynia, then possible Lichen Sclerosus? Children are known to get this. Usually the vulva skin will have white patches or areas though.

Has the doctor ruled out lichen sclerosus? Vulvodynia-like symptoms can present themselves when girls are really young, but usually don't get diagnosed until later in life.
