Diagnosed Recently

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 …

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 …

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 …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

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 …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

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 …

Finally found a place for me...

Finally found a place for me...

Post  mtsp on Mon Jul 10, 2017 11:47 am

Hi,

I am so glad I found this support group. I come from Vietnam, and in my country, vulvodynia is not something very commonly understood. I've always felt so left out before I decided to join this forum.

I had a resistant yeast infection 6 months ago, which did not go away with any drugs or anti-fungals I was prescribed. The symptoms would be alleviated for a week top and then came back with the discharge and everything. Two months ago I decided to try boric acid, and after 2 weeks, all my discharge and symptoms were gone! I was so happy. The soreness on my labia minora (only on my left side, no swelling, looks totally normal) was gone too. I thought my vulvodynia was due to the stubborn yeast infection and I was so happy, I thought boric acid got rid of the yeastie beastie and my tender labia minora too. Until 2 weeks ago, I had a pretty bad case of allergic reaction (I don't know what the cause was), I got rashes on my face and my whole vulva itched for several days. After using antihistamines, my whole face went back to normal and my vulva was no longer itchy, but the vulvodynia came back... I have pain on the left side of my labia minora, all of it, and it hurts when touched. The skin there looks totally normal, no swelling, no redness at all. My vagina walls are normal, no pain.

Right now I'm on boric acid again (desperately try to stop the pain), but I don't know what else to do. Which creams should I use? Anyone who has similar problems can give me advice? Sad I have been to several gynos, and they all brushed it off and said the pain was all in my head because they didnt see anything abnormal. Like I said, in Vietnam this problem is not as well understood. I am thinking of going to maybe Singapore or China to meet a specialist.

I have been in a depressed state for 6 months. Any help would be much appreciated.

Have you ensured that you are not using any fragranced washing products (soaps, bath foam), detergents (including fabric softener), and sanitary towels? Also be careful with diet. Make sure your urine is not too acidic by avoiding citrus fruit juice, carbonated drinks, etc. Wear loose cotton underwear and avoid wearing underwear when sleeping. Those things can all help if you are not doing them already.

I'd be cautious about trying creams. Sometimes the preservatives/added ingredients can cause irritation. I hope you can find a specialist and get some relief soon.

hi PainBlogger!

thank you so much for your advice. I never use anything scented down there, and I always wash my hair bending down so the shampoo doesn't touch my vulva. my labia problem actually just disappeared one day, but then my perineum hurt. Sad it's provoked pain, and it's on the left perineal area. it feels a lot more sensitive than the right side. after year of using boric acid, my vagina has become very dry too, but primrose evening oil seems to help.
i'm going to see an acupuncturist to see whether they can help.

thank you so much. i hope you found relief too!
