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 …

Hi I have been suffering for some years with this abominable pain.

Thank you I will try to put a link on to some of the research into Gabapentin Gel. Thanks.

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

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.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Does Vulvodynia affect your sexual partner?

Does Vulvodynia affect your sexual partner?

Post  rmb on Tue Mar 28, 2017 10:27 pm

I have been dealing with this for 10+ years. I am almost 26 and this started when I was 15. I have constant burning feeling in my vulva area, sometimes things make it worse but it is always there. Rain or shine. I am being told I have Vulvodynia....the only thing that is keeping me from accepting this is that my boyfriend complains about his urethra being irritated feeling after having sex with me and he's not the first boyfriend to complain about this. I have been tested for every possible thing out there and everything comes back as fine. Has anyone else had sexual partners complain about this?

Tenderness?

Post  amyhp on Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:34 pm

Do you have constant pain and tenderness or just constant burning? I am so sorry you have suffered with this for so long Sad
My husband has never mentioned having urethra pain after sex.

Burning

Post  rmb on Thu Apr 13, 2017 8:38 pm

Basically just constant burning Sad and knowing that its affecting my boyfriend is killing me...It's one thing that I have deal with this discomfort on a daily basis but knowing that I'm passing it on makes me feel like I can never have a normal relationship or kids or anything...I just feel like my life is passing me by and I can't even enjoy it

I understand

Post  amyhp on Fri Apr 14, 2017 4:03 pm

I completely understand. I am 25 years old and married. The pain stared for me when I was 20 after 6 months of being on the birth control pill and 2 months after marriage. I feel horrible for how this impacts my husband's life, but he stands by me and NEVER complains. If you ever want to talk you can private message me. <3

Also, if your burning is caused by vulvodynia there is no way that the burning could be passed to your partner. So no need to worry about that!!

Re: Does Vulvodynia affect your sexual partner?

Post  rmb on Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:14 pm

Yes, that's why I wanted to reach out to other's who have been diagnosed with Vuvlodynia...It's like having chronic pain in your shoulder just because your shoulder touches someone else's shoulder doesn't mean that they're going to start having shoulder pain...that might be a bad example but that is my point, it's like doctor's don't want to listen to me whatever I have it's affecting my partners too over the years it's been about 5 boyfriends that complain after having sex with me... and my most recent gyno I was telling her that my boyfriend is complaining about having a burning or irritation feeling in his urethra after sex and even days later and she said well maybe something is wrong with him and that she doesn't specialize in guys...it's so frustrating he was fine before he started having sex with me there was nothing wrong with him I know it's because of me

Strep B

Post  amyhp on Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:18 pm

Have you been tested for Strep B? Sometimes this can be a cause for burning, but it is not a test that is regularly ran.
