Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

He said this is …

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

-applied manuka honey to the area
-ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

As of now I am …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

What do you call yours?

Post  CamperUK on Fri Feb 18, 2011 9:53 am

This may have been asked before but I'm new, bear with me, please!
I've seen some lovely names on here:
Hoo haa
Lady bits
Lady garden
I call mine my Fanula
I don't like the word Vulvodynia so I get Fanula-itis.
Take care, ladies, have a pain-free day.

I go with girl bits. I'm not mature enough to use correct names.

I got burned year ago when I had my eldest daughter on my hip (boney in those days) in the queue at the supermarket. She was 2 or 3 and bellowed out "You're hurting my vagina".

These names are so creative, I just call mine "her" or "she", on bad days "she's being a b***h" on good days I just call it "her". Iv'e heard other names such as "cookie", "lady parts", and "girl".

I have two science degrees and am working on my Ph.D., so I admit I'm very medical/scientific in my names. Everything else feels "too cute" for me and I don't feel cute when I talk about my pain. I do like "Flaming Lips" though because that really sums it up, doesn't it?

The Flaming Lips is brilliant! So appropriate.

If I'm talking to my boyrfriend, I tend to say pussy. It's a word he uses (he's a hippy type, not a vulgar bloke, just to clarify haha). And I refer to 'it' as "she" most of the time. And when necessary I always fall back on Front Bottom. Nice and easy, and everyone knows what you're talking about!

When it's period time though it's... My Poorly Week. Another BF invention.

Weirdly, I call mine my "tummy". It started as a way to tell my bf that my vagina hurt without saying my vagina hurts in front of people. It took me a long time to explain it to friend and family. Still, not all my friends/family know. So, i tell my bf - "Oh, I want to go home. My tummy hurts." He knows what I mean. And now it's just taken hold and it's what I always call it to everyone who knows about it.

Haha thinking about it though, having a grown woman complain about her tummy and needing to go home because of it sounds just as weird as saying my vagina hurts.

Oh well, at this point, my vag is now my tummy.

What do you call yours?

Post  Antaea on Sat May 21, 2016 11:01 am

Well, that depends on the language I use.

"Muschi" (pronounced Mooshi) in German, but that is the name of my cat too, even he is a real big boy. And it is the northern German expression for a female cat in general. So, that may be a little bit confusing!
In Norwegian, the official expression is "genitals", "Kjønnsdeler" in Norwegian. None uses it. There are similar, partly very negativ words in German. So I normally refer to this region as "my basement", ("kjelleretagen") or, in the best new Norwegian style, using a lot of adapted English words, as "downstairs". Or I only point at the region. Here, from all the English expressions, I like "lady parts" best.
