I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25


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 …

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

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured


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 …

Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist

after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

New and desperate for advice

Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

Can A Cut In Vestibule cause Vulvodynia?

Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:07 am by rockylife

vulvodynai and anal fissures

vulvodynai and anal fissures

Post  sheshegabore on Sun Jul 16, 2017 1:04 pm

I am a new member on here and must say very glad to have found this site. 7 years ago I suffered a very bad bout of Cdiff. I was constantly on the loo with terrible bouts of the runs. This resulted in me have constant pain from anal fissures. At the same time I started feeling this painful burning feeling in my vagina. As a result I have not been able to have sex with my husband for 7 years and is makes me so sad. I am convinced the two pains are related. I have seen a "specialist" in a private hospital (referred by my doctor) and paid £300 for him to tell me the vaginal pain was all down to being too tight. He said not having children contributed and that because I knew I would feel pain I simply closed up o n penetration. He suggested a vaginal stretcher to loosen me up. The first time I used one I was in agony not to mention the cystitis. I need to find someone who may be able to understand the link between my anal fissure pain and my vaginal pain. Can anyone give me any advice please?
The anal fissures were unbearable, but I pain £1000 privately and saw a surgeon who recommended botox. This eased the worse pain, but I live with the constant nagging pain every day.
I have suffered from cystitis since I was about 4 years old. I had my bladder stretched last year (not recommended) as my doctor suggested that this may help, it didn't!

Not really much to add apart from the fact that I suffer with constant anal fissures as well as vulval pain. Hope you find some relief / answers. x
