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 …

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 …

I am new here and hope to gain some insight into my vulva pain. I suffered for a long time not realizing that there are ways to feel better. I saw the Dr. yesterday and I am starting P/T pelvic and valium suppositories. queen

Had this for 5 years, looking for people who understand

Sat Oct 06, 2018 9:46 pm by blackberrie

Hey all. I'm really struggling to find anyone in real life who can really understand what I'm going through. I've had vestibulodynia for 5 years now and I'm single. Obviously it has completely affected how I approach dating and sex and the fact that I can't really talk to people irl about it has made me feel very lonely. I've found that a lot of the women who have this problem are married and …

Anyone have pain with urination?

Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:35 pm by mertzwl

Hi everyone - I can't believe I've been dealing with this for almost 10 years and an appointment scheduler at a urogyn office is the one to suggest I look into vulvodynia. Honestly, I don't care, I just thankful I might have an answer.

I have pain in one specific spot right around the urethral opening so it always coincides with urinating (it's not a uti). Does anyone else deal with pain …

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 …

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 …

6 year sufferer but I’ve found some hope

Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:33 am by Npage14

Hey, ladies! I’m new to this support group, I’ve thought about doing something like this for a while so I wanted to try this out! I’ve had vulvodynia for 6 years now, I am self diagnosed. I’m 20 now and the pain started when I had my first encounter with sexual contact when I was 14(I still remained a virgin though it was fingering). For a couple years the pain was so bad I could hardly …

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 …

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.
