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 …

Really painful sex and feeling distressed

Really painful sex and feeling distressed

Post  jessd on Fri Jan 06, 2017 4:17 pm


I'm new to this forum. I'm 27 years old and got diagnosed a few years ago with vulvar vestibulitis and secondary vaginismus. I had very horrible pain at the entrance of the vagina when my boyfriend penetrate me and he has a normal size penis. It hurts so bad I cry and feel like I'm being raped. The pain is horrendous, I feel like my vagina is ripped apart and cut, like a knife is cutting me, like his penis is too big and does not fit and it burns so much and after making love, it can continue to burn for hours after. We use lubricant and do plenty of preliminary first and i'm aroused but it burns even still. It's been like a year since we haven't had sex, we had sex lately and it still hurts horribly because of that and I'm planning getting pregnant soon but I'm so scared. I'm scared to loose my boyfriend because we have no sex life.

What can I do, what are the options for treating this condition ? A friend told me to go to a kinesiologist, to buy vaginal dilators but I'm confused as to what to do. The gyn wanted to prescribe me a anesthesiant cream but it needs to be put 30 min before having sex. Will it get better ? Will I enjoy sex again ?

Also, is vaginismus often associated with vulvar vestibutilis ?
Thank you for your support !

Re: Really painful sex and feeling distressed

Can you arrange to see a physical therapist (physiotherapist) who specialises in pelvic pain/women's health? She could advise you on the use of dilators at home. I think working through dilators is the key to treating the muscle tightness. I had a lot of the same problems as you, but now I can have pain-free sex again after diligently working through the dilators every day under the guidance of a physio. I'd advise you to refrain from anything that causes you pain in the meantime. i.e. no sex if it hurts because the muscles will just get tighter and tighter in response to the pain. It's frustrating to have to abstain, but think of it as temporary until you've worked with the dilators. Good luck.
