Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

Somebody please help me...

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

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 …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

My name is Eliza Barach and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia in October of 2017. I'm also PhD student at the State University of New York at Albany. I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. 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 …

Please tell me this can get better

Post  Bx11 on Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:03 am

After 8yrs of pain and suffering I’m just about at my wits wend. I feel I have missed so much with my husband and put him through so much. The lack of sex is killing my sex drive and we have been robbed of so many special nights including engagement dn wedding. Now it’s stopping us trying for a baby when all my fiends are on number one or two and the family who are in the dark are getting suspicious. I don’t no who to turn to and the pain today has as good as had me in tears. I feel like all the options lead to a dead end and I don’t no what to do anymore. I cannot get any help through the Doctors and feel totally lost and alone. Sad

Please do not feel discouraged. Know that you’re not alone and many of us can empathize with you. I found during my toughest times that counting my blessings helped to keep my psyche in check. If you dwell too much on the pain, it can take over you.

I will pray that you find relief from the pain. Please don’t give up. There were times when I hated my life because of the pain. However, today I am better and I’m glad I didn’t give up. Please know that better days are ahead.

I'm so sorry you're going through this. Don't lose hope! I am cured and I battled it for 15 years. (It doesn't take that long to heal). Once I figured out the cause and did the protocol, I was fine. Literally fine. I can have lovely sex and it's great. So now I troll the internet trying to help others. Here's my blog. Read through it.


Lately, I've been talking to women over the phone to help them come up with a plan and place to start, since there is so much to do. I just did this alone for years and I just want to help.

Please read and if you want to talk, just email me. My email address is on the bottom of the blog.
