Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

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 …

I just found this site tonight

Post  surprisemom44 on Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:35 am

Hello all,

I just found this site tonight. I am on my fourth round of antibiotics in a row since Nov. But honestly, have been having the pain, itching, burning for years. I had never heard of this condition until tonight and have not been diagnosed but I feel it has to be what I have. I had my first encounter with burning, itching, pain when I was 12! My mom tried to get me to douche! I had horrible discharge, severe itching, could hardly sit, I became depressed and gained 40 pounds in one year. At the age of 12! Later that year I got my first period. Things normalized after that and had no more serious issues until I became sexually active at 19. Then the cycle of bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection started. When I was pregnant at 25 I developed a bartholian cyst. Sometimes the skin in my vagina would split and crack and burn when urine touched it. After my son's birth, I had no problems until I turned 40. At that time I was living in Iran and access to good gynecological care was hard to come by. I had horrible burning, discharge, itching. I was treated with all kinds of medicines and creams even light therapy. Then amazingly got pregnant naturally at 44 and my symptoms abated until 2 years ago when I turned 50. They returned with a vengeance. Doctors wanted to put me on bc pills saying it would help normalize my hormone levels. Made everything worse. Then steroids. WORSE. Then the cycle of yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, etc started again. In the last year especially it has been so horrible, that I applied for disability. I cannot stand clothing touching the area. I go to the restroom dozens of times throughout the day. I have gained 100 pounds in a little over 12 months. I feel like the only relief I get is when I am asleep. I am on antidepressants, Metformin to reduce blood sugar. I get some relief while taking garlic supplements. I have been taking cranberry pills thinking they would help, but from what I have been reading maybe they are making it worse. It got so bad this past fall, that I contemplated suicide. I was hospitalized for suicidal thoughts. Of course, while I was there I was diagnosed with a UTI and put on antibiotics which only exacerbated teh problem. I also have inverse psoriasis in my groin so the whole area down there is red, raw, itchy, inflamed. I guess this is a rant, sorry about that.

living abroad

Post  surprisemom44 on Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:40 am

Reading through posts I have noticed that many sufferers lived abroad at some point, as I did. Could this somehow be a contributing factor? Maybe the water supply had microbes that we had not been exposed to before. Or the medications are different. Or even the food. I don't know but my condition got much worse after living abroad.
