Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results.

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.
