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 …

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 …

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 …

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 else get this from yeast infections? (new member)

Post  jungleclover on Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:37 pm

Year 1: So I immediately started getting yeast infections after I started having sex 3 years ago. Every time my boyfriend would ejaculate inside of me (he has a vasectomy) I would get yeast and it was terrible. Because I was in college and there were no Kaisers up in my college town I saw random doctors at clinics and I saw them at the school clinic. After a year I finally realized this whole thing was tied to the sex and we have been either using condoms or pulling out ever since which has been really helpful for me. I think it is possible I have a semen allergy. It certainly is very irritating to me vaginally.

Year 2:
But after a year of probably at least 9-10 infections, it was too late and I started having symptoms of vulvodynia. I was put on an antidepressant in September but it did nothing to help. I was stuck wearing cotton underwear all of the time and I itched all of the time (no pain yet). Around December I decided to try the smart idea of wearing a tampon. I was always a tampon girl and I still mourn the loss of tampons. So I accidentally fell asleep with it in and the next morning I woke up with the most UNHOLY PAIN. Went to the dr christmas eve and they said I had a yeast infection but this was different. It BURNED and itched. This burning and itching would last for the next 4-5 month. I got a C in my neuroscience class because I couldn't pay attention. Everyday walking back to my car from school I would try to hide my sobs and as soon as I got home I would ice for the next 1-2 hours. Eventually, they found out I had a UTI (I kept getting tested for one but they came back negative and I kept seeing new drs). I got antibitotics and felt better immediately.

For the next year, I got off pretty much scott free. I wore synthetic thongs, tight jeans, wet bathing suits. I had so much sex. I WAS ALIVE. My boyfriend was pulling out and everything seemed great. I thought I just had a semen allergy and everything was fine.

Year 3: One terrible January day I got lazy and did not pee within 15 minutes after sex. The next morning I woke up and I had a yeast infection again. But I've graduated college. I'm closer to drs. I thought this would be different. I would get treated and it would be ok. It was not ok. I'm not sure when I finally got the yeast to go away or when the vulvodynia started but it's been 6 months and I am in so much pain. And I itch all of the time. I am afraid I won't be able to keep my job. Last night I woke up at 3AM and never went back to sleep it hurts so bad.

I've probably seen over 30 different doctors over the course of this ordeal. maybe more honestly. I know the entire gynecology department at my kaiser. I have an appointment with a specilist in 6 weeks in Portland and I start PT in 2. I am so terrified. This is the worst thing in the world I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Even tasks like talking out the trash or walking through the grocery store seem like a marathon.

Can I just say this is so isolating and miserable. No one else has this problem and since I alientated all of my friends in college by refusing to go out and choosing to stay inside and ice my junk all day I have no one to talk it over with. I'm in pain, I'm lonely, and I don't know how I'll keep my job and pay bills. Worst yet I don't know when/if I'll get better. I could feel this way forever and I'm in my early 20's. This is such a raw deal.

Also does anyone else have a side of itching with their pain? For me it's always been more of an itching problem alouth I have had my fair share of pain too.

I had yeast too

Post  Tunes25 on Sat Mar 10, 2018 3:05 am

Hi there!

I too suspect that I have got this from recurrent yeast infections. I had a whole string of them over the course of about 9 months and then was fine for 3 months (except for a quick and easily cured spell of BV). Then in January I started getting some random itching/pain again and my doctor put me on Clindamycin gel (antibiotic) as treatment for DIV (weird because I didn't have any discharge characteristic of DIV) which is inserted into the vagina. Since it was inserted, I didn't use my probiotic suppositories and that caused me to get another yeast infection after I'd been free of them for months! That's since been treated, but now I still have painful sex and slight lingering if itchy sensation intermittently. It's been frustrating because I'm in a pretty new relationship with a guy who has a high sex drive, which the old me would have been totally into. It's so frustrating when you know what it's like to have it feeling good and yet feel so powerless to get back to that!

Hi there!

I also believe that mine started from a yeast infection. I had a yeast infection that didn't go away after using Monistat so I went to my gyno who prescribed me Diflucan. That worked, but then I got a bacterial infection. After taking medicine to cure that I was still itchy and sex was uncomfortable or painful. I eventually went to a derm who said it was Linchen Sclerosus. We've tried multiple medicines and steroids, but I still haven't found the right combination. I know a lot of people get the pain, but not the itch. It's so annoying and when I walk it feels like pins are poking me.

I would say Amitriptyline and Pelvic Floor PT has helped me the most.

Hang in there!

One really bad yeast infection

Post  Guest on Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:09 pm

My V started from a yeast too. I got my very first yeast infection last may (2017), but thought I had an UTI. It never itched. It only burned on the left side, but I did have some rectal itching. It took the doctors over a month to figure out I had a yeast infection. I ended up having to do 2 rounds of diflucan and the second time I had clotrimazole. Both times it improved but the pain was still terrible. The doctors convinced me that my pain was due to skin tags so they convinced me to get cryotherapy which only made it worse. I eventually convinced my np to prescribe daily diflucan and have been on it for about 6 months. I also did a round of oral nystatin for yeast overgrowth in the intestine. I'm now weaning off daily diflucan to weekly diflucan because of how much I have improved. Sex is not painful and most of my pain is at a 2. However, the yeast infection damaged my labia and thats the very last part of my pain so my doctor suggested a labiaplasty to remove the damaged tissue. She I can decide in 3 months when I see her again. Hope this helps.

I am so so sorry! Vulvodynia was responsible for the worst times in my life. Ok first... I had all the symptoms you mention and I am cured. Yes, I also saw 20+ western docs and countless alternative ones.

First... I followed the protocol by Anthony William and his protocol cured me. According to him, yeast isn't the problem. Yeast is just a reaction to your body fighting an infection. Vaginal burning can be caused by a strep or shingles viruses. Don't worry about getting tested they currently can't detect it.

If it currently itches I recommend douching with sovereign silver. Just use a baby syringe. Links are below. This would always relieve the itching.



Next, start on your green drinks to bring down the burning/inflammation. Once in the morning and once in the evening and once whenever you are burning. Celery, cucumber, parsley, cilantro, lemon. Omit the lemon if that is too detoxing.

How to juice:

Here is my blog. Check it out. My email is listed on the bottom. I am completely healed now and in my spare time I help other women cure themselves. Email me if you wanna chat and I can help you start on the protocol.

Don't give up!

Hey guys I just wanted to let you know that I ended up getting better. A month after this I found out that I had an undiagnosed UTI. It took me another few months to get over my vulvodynia and nerve damage but I am a new woman. For me, boric acid was the answer since it treats both BV and yeast. I still get probably an infection every 6 weeks but I just pop a boric acid tablet and it kills everything before they can take root. I am so thankful and so happy. I don't know if you could tell but I was in extreme pain and was planning to kill myself August 20th (so I had a month left after I made this post). Thank you for all of your support and to anyone reading this I got better and you will too!
