MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

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 …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.

I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

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 …

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Post  RainyShay77 on Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, neurontin, lyrica, flexeril) to no avail. The only time I seem to get relief is if I take Diflucan. I mentioned this to my gyn and a few years ago I did a candida diet for 6 months...we did daily Diflucan for 2 weeks (at the end of the 2 weeks I honestly thought I was cured). Then we did 3 pills a week and then went down to 1 pill a week. By the 1 pill a week my symptoms were flared back up. We repeated the 2 weeks an additional 2 times. Sadly, each time the same thing would happen when I got to the 1 pill a week. My specialist now thinks it is nerve related, but I am becoming skeptical. None of the medications have eased the pain at all, only the Diflucan. I don't date, mostly because I don't want to saddle some poor guy with a 'broken' woman who could never be intimate. At this point, I feel like I'll have to spend forever alone. If anyone has ever experienced relief with Diflucan or could offer suggestions I'd be so happy to speak with you. Thank you.

Every woman on this forum with you!

Post  ekaterina1996 on Wed Dec 06, 2017 5:10 am

Hello, dear friend!
I understand you, I am in this condition for the last 2 year, I know what you mean about burning, itching and other kinds of terrible pain. Other women in this forum too. I want to tell you that you can not be in this state forever. No one can be in this state forever. Every woman has to go a long way to find her successful treatment. Have you tried botox injections? Laser? Surgery? You must continue finding of your own treatment, because every woman has various reasons for the pain. Be strong and read more literature about your illness, find research about your symptoms. You will be successful! (sorry for my English, it is my 2nd language)

I battled V for 15 years and I consider myself cured now. During that time I saw 15/20 western docs and 15+ alternative docs. It was ridiculous. I found a few things that helped and learned how to manage the pain but I never considered myself cured until Anthony William's protocols. Basically, according to him 90% of vaginal burning cases are caused by an unknown/currently undetectable strain of the strep. The other 10% are caused by unknown/currently undetectable strain of the shingles. I had both. FML. His strep protocol cured the internal/outer burning. Then his shingles protocol cured a rash I would sometimes get. Yeast infections are also caused by strep.

Go to my blog. Scroll down to the necessary reading section. Listen to all those shows listed. For you, I would start with the strep, candida and UTI shows. He actually mentions antifungal medications in the UTI show. He says they will help temporarily but will not fix the underlining problem. Don't worry, he explains how to fix it for good. His stuff works. It worked for me.

And yes, my vagina is back to her normal self. I can have wild sex and I'm totally fine, during and after. Sorry for TMI.... sex was always the ultimate test. Don't give up hope. You are not doing this alone. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you both for your responses Smile I'll look into your blog. If I ask my doctor to test for strep is there a certain strain I should mention to her?

Unfortunately, there are currently no tests for these strains. The reason I know that Anthony William's recommendations worked was because I tried the strep protocol and it worked. So I figured that I had strep. There was a remaining rash, so I tried the shingles protocol and that cleared up the rash. I did it backwards.

How much is a bushel of cilantro - is that just what you normally get in a bunch at the grocery store?

At least a cup of cilantro. When I was really sick I would use at least 1/2 bunch to a whole bunch. Try listening to your body. Those small preferences are actually your body trying to communicate what it needs.

Yes, I just use a blender and a nut bag myself. Keep me posted!
