Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

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 …

How do you live with this?

Wed Feb 22, 2017 12:15 am by Persevere1990

Hi everyone,

It's great to see there is a support network here... I was diagnosed a few weeks ago and have started nightly treatment with lidocaine cream one week ago. Not noticing any difference yet.

I notice I get flare ups throughout the day, typically after peeing, showering, walking and when I'm stressed. I'm pretty sure my vulvodynia was caused by nerve damage due to a bad case of thrush …

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 …

Hello all,

During the procedure I had a sharp pain from where she cut me, but once it …

Mon Dec 12, 2016 1:49 am by 1989SBSC

I've been reading these forums for the past year or more and have never posted anything online like this before. I'm overwhelmed and don't even know where to start. Up until a couple years ago, I never had any urinary tract/vaginal problems. Sex (intercourse) always felt good, and I didn't notice any burning feelings in my vagina or urethra. Then, I lived abroad for a year in a hot, tropical …

Pain has destroyed our sex life

Post  Scotland1984 on Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:58 am

Hey, I'm posting as for months now my Wife has been experiencing severe vaginal pain during sex.
We first got together 8 years ago and our sex life was amazing. Over the last couple of years she has experienced pain during sex, she went to see a GP who referred her to a gynocologist who examined her, found nothing but gave her an a numbing cream & diolator kit. This doesn't help at all.
It's got to the stage now that the pain has totally put my Wife off all aspects sex, she doesn't feel sexy at all and dreads having intercourse, which I totally understand. We hardly ever have sex compared to what we did and she said she only does it for me, which is the last thing I want. As much as I appreciate she put herself through the pain, I felt awful during & after sex, it's horrible knowing she is in agony and just wanting it over asap, that's not the sex life I want for both of us.
I got researching on the net & discovered Vulvodynia and it sounds like that is what she has. I'm going to suggest taking pentatrive sex off the table till we sort this out.
She is willing to go see a gyno again but worried that because they can't see anything they won't do anything. It's such a horrible thing to go through this and must be a million times harder for her but end of the day I want to support her, get this fixed and get back to enjoying pain free loving sex!
Reading over a few posts I'm guessing it's going to be a case of trying different pills, pelvic floor excercises, counselling & finding what works for her.

There are some good books on the subject you might want to look at. It can be helpful to inform yourselves as much as possible which it seems like you're already well on the way to doing. Amy Stein - Heal Pelvic Pain, Heather Jeffcoat - Sex Without Pain, are a couple. If you can find a women's health/specialist pelvic pain physiotherapist in your area then that might be very useful too. The physio can advise on the best way to use dilators and relax the pelvic floor muscles.

Does your wife have pain at any other times? i.e. without contact to the area?

Thanks so much! I'll look into those books. The pain is just during intercourse, worse right at the start
