Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Hey everyone,

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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 …

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 …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

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
