Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

Lidocaine and Itching?

Post  lindsey_taylor on Sat Oct 01, 2016 6:49 pm

I have been trying this whole thing for the past few nights... soaking a cotton ball in lidocaine and putting it against the vaginal entrance at night. Tried this before, wound up hurting more due to the pressure of the cotton ball so I quit. Trying again. The lidocaine does help soothe the pain but I have still been having the pressure pain from the cotton ball. So I mixed the lidocaine with yes water based lubicant, squirted a little of this mixture inside my vagina and put the rest on the cotton ball and put it at the entrance of my vagina. Woke up yesterday morning itching around the inside of my labia, and right at the entrance of my vagina. I should also mention that I just finished a 21 day treatment with clindesse recently and it didn't do me any good. What could be causing the itching? The lidocaine? I have not had itching with my vulvodynia in the 2 and 1/2 years I have had it... just pain and discharge.

I tried the cotton wool trick, but also had itching. I came to the conclusion that the cotton wool was causing irritation, so I stopped! It doesn't say on the cotton wool pack whether it's 100% cotton, and the have no obligation to say whether the cotton wool has been treated with any chemicals (e.g. bleach Rolling Eyes ) I figured there was probably something in the pads.

Maybe you could search online to see if there are any brands better to use, or someone might be able to suggest?

I am seeing a new doctor who told me that occasionally lidocaine can lead to sensitivity. She also said that you can have rebound pain (i.e., the nerves will seem more sensitive when it wears off). This seems really bizarre to me, since it gets prescribed so often for vulvodynia.
