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 …

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.
