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 …

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 …

Sore after using dilator

Sore after using dilator

Post  NewNicola on Sun Feb 04, 2018 4:20 pm

Hi everyone,

It took ages but I was eventually diagnosed with vestibulitis a couple of years ago. I was suffering from unprovoked pain on a regular basis and sex was completely out of the question. It was miserable as you can imagine. I've eventually managed to get the daily discomfort (minus the sex issue) pretty much under control thanks to a brilliant physical therapist who identified tight muscles as the root of my problem and taught me about deep tissue massage. I did do some work with dilators while seeing her but then went through a bad spell of anxiety which meant the dilators got buried in the back of a drawer. I just couldn't deal with the added stress of trying to use these as well as overcome the anxiety issues. For the first time in almost a year i plucked up the courage yesterday to try inserting the smallest dilator. I managed with very little discomfort which i was over the moon about! Today though i feel quite sore and everything feels tingly. I'm freaking out a bit as it reminds me of UTI symptons. There's no burning or urgency though so my logical mind is saying that its probably just my vaginal muscles reacting to having something inside after such a long time! Has anybody here experienced this after using a dilator for the first time or moving up a size? I shouldn't overreact but this whole process has been so emotionally draining that any sign of pain makes me feel worried and emotional. Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom x

Hi there!

I understand the freak out. Whenever I feel tingly/itchy and sore I get terrified that I have a yeast infection which is what I think caused this all. My PT told me that those symptoms are normal when doing new stretches or using the dilator since your skin and nerves are adjusting to it. I'd wait a couple days before worrying about a UTI. In the meantime you could do preventative measures like drinking cranberry juice.

Good luck!

Thanks so much for this! It made me feel very reassured. The soreness disappeared after a couple of days so it must have been my muscles and nerves overreacting. It's difficult not to freak out when things like this happen though!

I totally understand. I'm feeling slightly itching today so now I'm freaking out that I'm getting a yeast infection. Maybe I should take my own advice haha
