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 …

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 …

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 …

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

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

yeshello

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.
