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

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

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....
