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 …

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.

Re: What do you call yours?

Post  Mvp123 on Fri May 20, 2016 8:09 pm

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.
