I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

Diagnosed Recently

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

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 …

Newlywed and newlydiagnosed- help!

Post  hollync on Sun Dec 18, 2016 9:06 am

Hello, I am 24 and had pain-free sex with my new husband for 3 years before starting to have this pain about 2 years ago. It started after a course of antibiotics, and although I have been on hormonal birth control for over 10 years, I changed to a similar, but different birth control around that time as well. It generally stings and burns, mostly after intercourse.

I finally saw someone about 9 months ago and was first given gabapentin, which I had too many problems taking 3 times a day (I'm currently a graduate student and my schedule is very inconsistent) and was having a lot of fatigue during the day. I now take amitriptyline 50 mg a day and am having troubles with fatigue and grogginess in the morning as well, and I'm hoping to change to something else- I just can't deal with the grogginess I get from the amitriptyline. It has improved the pain some, but definitely not all the way. I also have topical lidocaine that I use for breakthrough pain.

I am hoping some of you have advice for what to try next, what to talk to my doctor about, and anything else! My husband has been SO understanding, but I would love to get this under control for the both of us!

You could ask to try duloxetine. I get zero grogginess from it - in fact, I have more energy since I've been on it. I don't know if that's because I have so much less pain (and pain is tiring) or because I'm getting a slight stimulant effect from it. Acupuncture may help - it's not cheap (at least here in the UK), but it's helped me (in conjunction with the duloxetine).

Do you feel like you have muscle tightness? If so, physical therapy with a PT that specialises in pelvic pain/women's health may be useful. Dilators at home for stretching exercises.

Are you doing all the common sense things like avoiding fragranced products in that area (and fragranced detergent on underwear/towels)? I'd suggest drinking plenty of non-caffeinated, non-acidic drinks to keep your urine as dilute as possible so you don't have concentrated urine in contact with your skin down there.

I hope some of that helps. Smile
