Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Sex without Pain by Heather Jeffcoat

I have to say I have been working with the dilator exercises in her book and its really going well.

I have a set of four dilators and she also recommends getting a dildo the same size as your partners penis to practise with!

I have to say after going on lovehoney and looking at the dildos I am amazed at the size some women are able to use! OMG! scary lol

I am managing number 3 dilator quite well and have managed to use number 4 slowly but still need to work on number 3 for a while first before upgrading!

Does anyone else recommend any good dilator techniques?

cheers

I had a lot more success with dilators once I switched from using them in the evening to using them in the morning before getting up. The PFMs are naturally more relaxed first thing when one hasn't been walking around all day. Stretching around the clock (from 3 to 9 o'clock around the bottom half of the 'clock') with the smallest dilator before inserting the next size each session has also worked well for me. I'm at the point now where I just do that stretching a couple of times a week as I'm able to have pain-free sex again now for the past six months. Persistence with dilators really does pay off.

I will deff try the morning thing as after a long stressful day I'm not exactly relaxed!

Yes I do the stretching round the clock with the smallest first. Its also recommended in the book.

I just need to now have the will power to wake a little earlier to do my dilator work!

Its great that you have been able to have pain free sex for all this time. Its given me a lot of hope and even more motivation to carry on.

Cheers
