Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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 …

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.

Pain following a vaginal cyst procedure a year ago.

Pain following a vaginal cyst procedure a year ago.

Post  crackleberry on Sat Feb 11, 2017 11:22 pm

Hi everyone, I'm sorry this is going to be long, but please listen and help if you can. I am a 17 year old girl. In february of 2016 I had a mass protruding from my vagina, I went to the er, they didn't know what kind of cyst it was but they did an incision and drainage and put a word catheter in to help the cyst drain. During the procedure I had a sharp pain from where she cut me, but once it was over, the pain went away. When I got home I had green discharge, very very thick, almost like a booger, it was a small amount but still noticeable and I knew it had to do with the cyst. Everything was fine except for occasional discomfort now and then in the area where she cut me. About three months later though, I started experiencing pain in the exact area where she cut me and it hasn't gone away since. I still have the green discharge when the pain is really bad, and I have tried to get it cultured, but when I go to the gyno the discharge isn't there. I have been to so many doctors and they all say that because there isn't anything visually wrong with my vagina that means its in my head or I'm making it up. I feel like I am going crazy. I have severe anxiety attacks and can't do anything for days because of this pain and the worry that I'll always be in pain or that I will get another cyst and have to go through another procedure and be in pain 2x as bad. I'm severely depressed knowing that I can't masturbate or have sex and probably never will. At the end of december I tried to masturbate with my clit and then the whole right side of my vagina swelled up. There is now a tiny bump near the entrance of my vagina on the right side which scares me half to death. I have tried to get an mri of my vagina because I know something is wrong but the doctors say that because they can't see anything wrong they can't order and mri. My gyno told me to go to the er if the pain gets bad or it swells up again, but what are they going to do for me at er if not even a gyno can help me?!?! I don't want to go to a hospital and spread my legs for yet another doctor to tell me it looks fine and send me on my way. I can't deal with it anymore. Can anyone please give me some advice or guidance? It's been a year with the same green discharge and the pain only seems to be getting worse. I feel completely alone and scared in this. The pain is usually on the right side where I was cut at the er, but I also have been having pain on the left side as well. I really don't know if this is vulvodynia. It is vulvar pain, but the green discharge leads me to believe that there is an identifiable cause for my pain, but no doctor will listen or try to find a plan to help me. Maybe I'm just in denial, but I feel like there has to be a way to fix this. The pain recently moved up my labia and is closer to my clit now. I'm sorry if this is too weird or something, I just don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have never felt so alone in my life.
