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 …

Somebody please help me...

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 …

Really painful sex and feeling distressed

Really painful sex and feeling distressed

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

Hi,

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.
