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 …

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Many years ago i was struck with V, it was painful and got worst and worst, eventually i could not sit, could not stand, could not walk, could not swim in a swimming pool anymore. I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

Does it go away?

Does it go away?

Post  cam4221 on Fri Apr 28, 2017 12:16 am

I started having problems in May 2016 and it took seeing 5 doctors to finally get diagnosed after 6 months of pain. I've been taking ami @ 75mg and also taking gabapentin 600 mg multiple times a day. It seems that there are times that this condition just disappears and then comes back at random times. Does anybody go through that? Also does anybody else get infections more often than they did before this condition came on? Also does anybody feel like when they are ovulating that it's extra gunky down there? I'm not sure if maybe I notice my ovulation more because of this condition and it may be the normal amount but I just am unsure on how everyone feels and sometimes it's hard to describe to a doctor when they don't have that condition and it seems that not many doctors know about this condition....

Hey there!

When I am on my period, I feel completely fine. I can wear jeans, underwear, you name it. But once I am off my period, my symptoms come back at random times. I might have a few days where I don't feel much pain (of course, I take my gabapentin every day, regardless of pain), then bang, I'm back to sitting on an ice pack. Recently, the pain has been gone during the day and around 9:30pm it returns. Just in time to guarantee a sleepless night. My IC is like this, too. I am fine during the day, but once it is about time to go to bed, I start feeling pain. My IC is not affected by diet. About every other year I get a huge flare that lasts a month or two. Sorry, I am rambling. Cool

yes, it will and the more you believe it the better these chances are.
It can go away forever or come back again after some years but it is still very possible to achieve at least a remission. Don't let anyone tell you it's for life because people are different and don't forget there is also something called spontaneous remission.

Some years ago, I had a very bad nocturnal panic attack and the ambulance was called because I was hysterical and telling everyone I'm dying Shocked l, in an effort to calm me down, one of the ambulance ladies told me she once had cystitis for 6 full months ! and that one day it disappeared the same way it appeared for her...for no obvious reason. So there you go!

Try and read positive stories and maybe buy some positive books on remissions from illness, it helps a lot to stay positive
