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

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! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum as an official member, but I have been reading some of your posts for a while now as I have been searching for treatment suggestions and new methods to try to heal my case of vulvodynia. I have had burning on my vulva and pain in my vestibule almost a year now. The burning and pain started after using lube during sex for the first time which stung my skin, and the burning hasn't stopped since. I've been tested for infections which have all come back negative, and used treatments such as steroid ointments, anti fungal pills and creams, estrogen cream, and low dose amitriptyline for a little while to no relief. However, from my research and the latest doctor I saw, who confirmed she believes I have vulvodynia based on my story, I think my pain is nerve issue related and was probably caused and made worse by all the stress I had when the pain first started. Additionally, the burning sensation is less intense when I lay down and it doesn't bother me as much when I go to bed.

I am a student so it is not easy for me to see my regular doctor or arrange for appointments where I go to school. As a result, I am considering buying Amy Stein's book Heal Pelvic Pain to try and help me as I have not tried pelvic stretching/exercises. I am wondering if some of you have found her advice and methods helpful and if it is worth a try.

I wish everyone a happy new year and thank you so much for sharing your stories! Having place to ask questions, read suggestions, and understand I am not alone in this is incredibly helpful!

It's probably about 18 months or so since I've looked at the book (because I've been so much improved) so I can't remember what was in that book compared to a couple of others I've read. But I do remember finding it helpful and certainly worth the £7 or similar amount I paid for it. To do some of the internal exercises (if you go down that route) you might need to also invest in some dilators. Those are a little more expensive but again well worth it I found.

I definitely recommend buying the book and you can decide from there which of the suggestions in it to try first. Good luck. I hope you get some relief soon.
