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'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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

Hi,

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

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.
