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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

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. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

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:
