    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


    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 …

    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 …

    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!
