New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

vaginal cream

Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:46 pm by LindafromNJ

I have been given ABC cream to start using for my condition. This is gabapentin, amitriptyline and baclofen cream. Has anyone tried this. Also has anyone used lidocaine. My doctor told me not to use it. It is so sore at the vaginal opening. Has anyone used it there. Please respond!!

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Looking for suggestions for dilator brands

Post  Pavloviandoggy on Tue Oct 11, 2016 8:56 pm

I have been suffering from vestibulodynia and secondary vaginismus for about two years. When I first was diagnosed, I spent about four months religiously using vaginal dilators. Unfortunately, my Vestibulodynia did not improve, which made using the vaginal dilators both frustrating and painful. At the time, I purchased the Berman dilator set, which I felt was made from plastic that was too hard but was in my price range (I was still in school at the time). Now that my symptoms have improved somewhat, I hope to restart dilator use. I also am a little more financially stable, so I'm looking forward to investing in fancier dilator brands. For my fellow dilators, what are some dilator brands you've had success with?

I've had success with the Amielle Comfort brand. I worked through from 1 - 4 (never got to 5) and was then able to resume pain-free intercourse. I tried the Femmax brand before that but they weren't so easy to hold and felt cheaper plastic (the end of one got a bit scratchy after only a couple of months, so I had to stop using). The Amielle ones are hard plastic though.

Hiya,

I have only just started using my dilators again as I am a bit more determined now to stop avoiding dealing with this!

I use Femmax, the manufacturer is Medical Devices Technology International Ltd www.mdti.co.uk

I really like them, there is only 4 and I remember when I first got them I never thought id manage number 4 but I have managed it (doing it slow) for a few times now!

I recommend the book Sex without pain by Heather Jeffcoat, she gives an easy to do step by step guide working with dilators.
