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! :)

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 …

Loneliness

Post  Licii on Sat Apr 07, 2018 7:01 pm

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and I joined in to feel a little bit less lonely in this nightmare. I'm well aware of the fact that there are lots of women struggling with vulvodynia, but I don't really know any, so it feels as if I'm the only one.
Anyway, my name is Alice, I'm 19 and my vulvodynia started when I was just 17, but worsened a lot when I was 18.
Luckily I've found a gynaecologist who has lots of patients with vulvodynia and has cured or strongly helped many of them, but so far I haven't yet seen noticeable improvments on myself.
My burnig pain is pretty strong everyday, all the time, and depression is hitting real hard.
I was hoping to find someone in my same situation and gain a little comfort from sharing our experiences :/

Good luck to eveybody out there struggling everyday <3

Hey Licii,

Welcome to the forum - sorry that you have to be here Sad I definitely share your feeling of isolation and have found that my diagnosis has taken a huge toll on my self esteem and mental health. I'm 23 and have had vulvodynia my whole life but only received a diagnosis last year (it's a long story!). You're certainly not alone in feeling this way, even though it feels sometimes like you are. It's so tough being the only one you know with this condition.. I hate having to constantly explain why my legs are cold (because tights and pants hurt!), why I need to sit on a cushion sometimes, why I can't use tampons etc. Tonight at a party my friend asked me if I could have penetrative sex yet. I told him that I can't and that this is a long journey and I don't know if I ever will. He told me that he admired my boyfriend because he (the friend) could never put up with being in a relationship with someone with my condition. It's so depressing, and the constant burning is only a consistent reminder of how bad it feels emotionally.

Alas, it sounds like you've got a great gyno. It seems to me like treatment is all trial and error, which sucks, but it's nice to have someone on your side who gets it.

Sending you love!
