An absolute success story- please read!

Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:57 pm by Persevere1990

Dear All,

I posted on here back in March 2017 having just got a diagnosis of vulvodynia after a few months of relentless and acute pain. I was desperate, I was hurting, I was scared I would never know life without pain there again.

I tried creams, acupuncture, numbing gels, frozen pads, baths with various internet recommended concoctions- convinced myself I had lichen sclerosus, herpes, thrush- …

I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

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 …

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride for Vulvodynia (treatment)

Post  mary jane on Fri Jun 02, 2017 6:23 pm

Hi all,

I'm posting this for information purposes, was reading some other forum and saw a user said she treats her V with this medication... I was blown away and wanted to post here ..I hope it helps others

I've been to 2 gynaecologists 1 of which helped me out so much and can thank my treatment for. I didn't even realise I had this until he told me, and was shocked that my previous gynaecologist did not see this. Vulvar vestibulitis (aka vulvodynia) is caused mainly by having thrush multiple times, making the nerves in the vulvar more sensitive. He told me that he had a treatment and I was so happy. -I am easily susceptible to thrush:((-
He prescribed me Atarax (an anti anxiety medication) it has been succesful in treating my discomfort. He first prescribed me 10 millagrams as he wasn't sure how I would be with the side effects/will cure my VVS with this low dose, (which are just drowsyness but can be managed by taking in at night -I didn't get any of the side effects-) it helped out my VVS but not treated it completely (I only took this for 28 days). He then prescribed me a higher dose of 25mg (which I am currently on for 3 months till my next check up). If that has treated it I will have to take the pills for 6 months for it to go. However if I still have it I will have to move to 30mg. But he is so helpful and said either way we are treating it. I hope this helped girls. It's hard to find a good gynaecologist that knows what vulvodynia is and how to treat it well."


I never tried it in the past since others worked for me, but it makes sense..it calmes the central nervous system and it stops sending pain signals.

I hope this helps someone

I take this for my hives, it's also an anti-histamine. Unfortunately, it doesn't help my V, but i've read others have had success. Definitely worth a try.

Hydrox is the first thing that truly made a difference for me.... though I have IC and not V. But at 10mg I knew something was different and as I increased to 50mg, the difference was remarkable. I went from thinking how to stop living to wondering how to live every day! It also makes sense for me since I have terrible allergies.
