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 …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

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 …

Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

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 …

I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months.

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 …

Male visitor

Post  outsider on Wed Jan 18, 2017 11:19 pm

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young women with vulvodynia have the same concerns about whether they will ever find a loving partner?

Hi there!

Yes, of course we fear never being able to find a loving partner due to our sexual restrictions. That fear creates stress and anxiety which makes pain conditions that much worse, but I'm slowly working on coming to terms with who I am, which includes this condition.

Hi Outsider,

It's been a while since you posted I know, but hopefully you'll see my message.
Like you, I'm male. I don't have any penis-related problems but it wouldn't matter if I did because my wife has vulvodynia.
Basically I think you're right, men with erection problems would make good partners for women with vulvodynia. My wife jokes that women want men for four things:
Love/companionship
Physical closeness
Orgasms
Babies
You don't need erections to do the first three of these things. In fact you might find you're better at all three than men who just think with their dicks and are too eager to stick it in and pump away.
Three things to bear in mind. Firstly some women with vulvodynia have such bad pain or have their condition triggered by touching any part of their genitals (not just the actual vagina where the penis goes in ). So they can't have any type of sex at all. That's OK if you can live without it. But if you need the enjoyment of making a woman climax it could be frustrating for you. Secondly if you meet someone who wants kids, can you get enough of an erection to masturbate occasionally to produce semen for assisted conception? Sorry to be so direct but it's something to bear in mind. And thirdly re the closeness thing, there are things you might not think of until you're in a relationship that are different about being in love with a woman who has this condition. Someone in pain can be short tempered or needy at times and there could be things she can't do. These could include travelling (my wife hates being on a plane if she has her pain) and doing certain activities that require wearing trousers rather than skirts and dresses. Sports etc perhaps.
Have you thought about posting in the general chat/off topic forum here to see if there are any single girls here who'd go on a date with you? It's wrong to generalise but there are some really nice people here and my wife is wonderful and I think sometimes people who've had to face bad things come out of it kinder and more determined than others, so women who have vulvodynia can be very special people :-).

Just to add, there are dating sites for people with sexual dysfunction. Below is one option, but if you Google it you will find others:
