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 …

Hi. This website seems to be a good outlet for people to talk about this with, seeing as everyone I know could never even begin to understand what I have been dealing with.

I turned 20 years old last week, and have been living with what I suspect is vulvodynia for the past 7 years. This horrible condition has robbed me of the sexual exploration I long for, in addition to the burning and rawness I have felt and thought about every single day since I was 13. I constantly feel helpless and misunderstood, which definitely did not help in a pivotal age in my life where kids generally feel out of place to begin with. I constantly drink water (constantly, constantly, constantly), and I try very hard to keep up a good diet, and it just feels very unfair that people get to consume complete s**t and take little to no care of their bodies still get to have a functioning and healthy sex organ. I have gone to 5 or 6 doctors now, and every diagnosis, medication or treatment I have tried has been of no help to me. This condition has caused me so much emotional damage and I feel completely helpless. After reading some entries on this website I am so, so overwhelmed at how varying the causes of vulvodynia can be and I have no idea where to start looking for at home remedies to at least relieve the pain. But I cannot even fathom having to take constant measures to relieve this pain for the rest of my life, and I cannot remember a time in my life when this wasn't an underlying and inescapable problem for me.

I don't know what else to say besides to ask for any treatments or remedies that have been of significant help to anyone reading this. I understand that people say having an outlet to talk about this with helps to better deal with it, but I don't want this to be something that I "learn to deal with" until I die. I want it gone. Thank you

I would say to anyone wondering what to try to read the book "When Sex Hurts" to try to figure out the cause, it runs through all known causes and there's a flowchart in it too to help you decide which treatments might be worth a try. I also say to everyone to see a Women's Health Physiotherapist (PT) even if the problem is a primary one as sounds to be the case with yours because any injury to the back, hips, pelvis can contribute or cause the problem so it's always worth seeing one.
