Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

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 …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

can v return after vestibulectomy?

can v return after vestibulectomy?

Post  Alana3 on Wed Mar 07, 2018 3:03 pm

Hi guys!

I used to be a big time member on here, but got my surgery in 2012 and was good to go- don't worry the surgery is still successful and if it's recommended to you, I say go for it. My question is, does anyone know if v can come back after surgery? I went off birth control pills, but suffer from extremely heavy periods, depression, nausea and let's not get into my boobs (but seriously I am at work and want to die and I keep picking fights with my boyfriend this needs to stop). Naturally, this shit disease coming back scares the hell out of me, so i was wondering if anyone here knew if it could come back after the vestibule was removed?

Thanks!

Ladies!!!
I am trying to get the word OUT!!! 20 years of “vulvadynia”, ic, vestibulitis. Whatever the docs want to calll it. It’s been beyond depressing and has made me feel downright crazy at times. Incredibly painful, living in silent pain, going to doctor after doctor just to hear that “my mind is causing my vestibular area to flare up”.
PLEASE INSIST ON GETTING TESTED FOR A MICROORGANISM BACTERIA CALLED UREAPLASMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s a VERY hard bacteria to find!! Does NOT show up in urine cultures!! There’s a very specific test to find it and you MUST insist on being tested!!!! PLEASE BELIEVE ME!!! After 20 years of this craziness I FINALLY was diagnosed with this bacterial uti and THIS is what has caused the vulvadynia!!!
Doctors don’t even know about this. My new primary care tested me after showing up with a Walgreens uti rest showing positive leukocytes. The urine culture came back negative as usual. She had a sad talk with me about vulvadynia.
I don’t know what came over her to send the urine off to a lab and get it checked for ureaplasma, but she did. I am SO grateful. I am FINALLY HEALING quickly!!
Ueraplasma only responds to certain antibiotics. I’m on doxycycline. 14 days and it may take several rounds. This is a serious bacteria and it can kill you.
Some doctors will dismiss this test and bacteria and say it’s part of our flora. NO-INSIST. If it shows up as an infection because it’s colonized, it IS the cause of vulvadynia.
GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS VULVADYNIA LADIES!!! DO NOT BACK DOWN!! FIND A DOC WHO WILL TEST YOU for UREAPLASMA!!! DO NOT WASTE 20 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE GOING THROUGH THIS HELL LIKE I DID.
I’ve been through biofeedback, neurontin, creams, specialist after specialist.
I’ve found small handful of other ladies on the internet who have posted the SAME about their ureaplasma diagnosis. They are doing cartwheels like I am!!!
I am really trying to get to word out!!! I promise you ladies!!!! There is a CURE!!!
DO NOT GIVE UP!!!!! Trying to respond to as many women as I can with my message!

Thanks but I've had that 4 times and no it cannot kill you. Stop fear mongering. That's really messed up you would put that on a post where someone got a vestibulectomy for their "vulvodynia." I have the top specialists in the country working on my case. While I have tested positive for ureaplasma, my v didnt go away and still had to have surgery. While it's good to advocate new ideas, this didnt answer my question and actually pissed me off due to the fact that while YOU may have gotten relief I had to have surgery from what was positively identified as vulvodynia. Stop and think before you post.

Hi Alana3,

I believe thankGod posted in another message that the treatment she was recommending didn't work to cure her pain, and I had gotten a really nasty message from her when I sent her a private message politely asking her to use her own post versus replying. She did eventually apologize, but just so you are aware, she copied this reply to a lot of posts sadly.

Hope you are doing well!!
