Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

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 …

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.
