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 …

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 …

I am new here and hope to gain some insight into my vulva pain. I suffered for a long time not realizing that there are ways to feel better. I saw the Dr. yesterday and I am starting P/T pelvic and valium suppositories. queen

Had this for 5 years, looking for people who understand

Sat Oct 06, 2018 9:46 pm by blackberrie

Hey all. I'm really struggling to find anyone in real life who can really understand what I'm going through. I've had vestibulodynia for 5 years now and I'm single. Obviously it has completely affected how I approach dating and sex and the fact that I can't really talk to people irl about it has made me feel very lonely. I've found that a lot of the women who have this problem are married and …

Anyone have pain with urination?

Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:35 pm by mertzwl

Hi everyone - I can't believe I've been dealing with this for almost 10 years and an appointment scheduler at a urogyn office is the one to suggest I look into vulvodynia. Honestly, I don't care, I just thankful I might have an answer.

I have pain in one specific spot right around the urethral opening so it always coincides with urinating (it's not a uti). Does anyone else deal with pain …

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 …

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 …

6 year sufferer but I’ve found some hope

Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:33 am by Npage14

Hey, ladies! I’m new to this support group, I’ve thought about doing something like this for a while so I wanted to try this out! I’ve had vulvodynia for 6 years now, I am self diagnosed. I’m 20 now and the pain started when I had my first encounter with sexual contact when I was 14(I still remained a virgin though it was fingering). For a couple years the pain was so bad I could hardly …

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 …

No diagnosis yet

Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone can help. I have not had a diagnosis of Vulvodynia yet but I’m positive it is what I’m experiencing. I can’t believe how suddenly and unexpectedly this has taken over my life. I’m 35 years old and have been single for around a year. I have just started seeing someone and at the beginning of feb I decided to go to my gp and start bc. I had been taking it for around 2 weeks when I was suddenly struck with a bad case of tonsillitis which is normal during stressful times (which lately has been stressful with one thing and another). I went to my GP and was prescribed antibiotics. I was also prescribed treatment for vaginal thrush as I always get thrush when I am on antibiotics. Sure enough thrush appeared but it was so severe I needed three lots of treatment to get rid of it. Ever since I have been burning and sometimes itching but it does not feel like thrush. It comes and goes and having sex with my new partner is almost impossible. I just feel like I’m on fire down below and in some areas quite painful too. I don’t know if this is some after effect of ready bad thrush or because of my bc. Any advice ladies. Thank you

I developped vulvodynia after a pretty bad UTI in 2010. A few days after there was massive buning from the vulvar tissue and the doctor said it was a yeast infection and I took one of those OTC treatments. It made it worse! I went back and ahe said "It will just go away " ???? So instead  I got a gyne appoint through another doc, did those insertable probiotic ovules etc- after 1week of that it was worse- the highest pain I've ever had. It was the acid from the lactibacillis that further "burned the skin". So I went back to this gyne and I was prescribed a steroid cream for 6 weeks because he thought I had lichen sclerosis. Let's just say the most I could do was 2 weeks because the cream made even worse again! By then I'm in agony and decide to go to an acupuncturist to help with the pain. It brought it down by 30-40%. So acupuncture could help regulate any circulation and pain issues.  That would be my best suggestion to start with.  Also thwre is a probiotic tablet called RePhresh ( that's how it's spelled- not a typo...). It's just for women. Then please consider seeing a pelvic physiotherapist that's what saved me really. I still have issues but the problem all along was screwed up connective tissue and muscle dysfunction. Good luck and take care.

Ok.. so I had unprovoked vulvodynia and provoked vulvodynia, chronic UTI, chronic yeast, lichen sclerosis, etc. I'm cured from it all. I followed the protocol by Anthony William.

According to Anthony, UTIs are caused by an unknown/currently undetectable strain of strep. Thrush is also caused by strep. It's a little confusing but lichen sclerosis is sometimes not recognized completely and that's caused by shingles. I think you're batting strep since of the UTI issues.

In my blog, under "necessary reading" I would listen to the shows on strep, lichen sclerosis and UTI (the UTI show covers more than just UTI)
http://myvulvodyniacure.blogspot.com/2016/12/if-you-are-in-pain.html

If this is too much, I started coaching women and helping them create a protocol and it's really been working for them. So that's exciting. I'm not a practitioner, I don't charge. It's just the right thing to do since no one else has been helping. At least no one could help me except his info. And chronic pain really messes with your head so it's hard to see straight when you're in pain. I get it.

My email is on the bottom of my blog.

Don't give up!
Sarah
