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 …

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 …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Has anyone tried Reflexology as a treatment

Post  Roselilyflower on Wed Nov 30, 2016 8:54 pm

Hi there everyone, I was diagnosed with vulvodynia about 5 months ago. It all started as an allergic reaction to some thrush cream I used to treat a yeast infection which I got agter a heafty load of antibiotics. I have been tested umteen times for herpes etc and I am all clear which is reassuring but still depressing as Inwas not sure what the hell was going on, then finally I was given an official diagnosis of vulvodynia. I was perscribed steroid cream and licodine which burnt and didnt make much difference to the pain. I was then put on nerve blockers such as amitotrypline (forgot how to spell it lol) which have worked but then I decided to try reflexology which was very relaxing. I have only had one session and I have booked another in 2 weeks time. Have any of you lovely people tried this method of treatment if so please tell me your experience and whether there are any other treatment options you have used which have been successful? Thanks for reading :-)

Hi Roselilyflower,
I know how much you're wanting answers to all of your questions...I too am on the hunt to understanding this. I'm currently trying dietary changes. Nothing working yet ;(
I just wanted to suggest you join the SECRET facebook page run by the lovely ladies who also run this forum. Contact Sebby or Naomi on your private messages. More people on that that can probably give you advice Smile
Good luck with your journey...

Hello... our experience of getting vulvodynia sounds very similar so I wanted to reach out and see how you are. I just began using lidocaine nightly a week ago... no change yet....
