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 …

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 …

Burning redness and vulvodynia

Burning redness and vulvodynia

Post  Bluenuddle on Mon May 28, 2018 11:34 am

Hi. I am looking to see if someone can give me hope or advice. I have self diagnosed vulvodynia. Doctors here do not have a clue. I been feeling it all my life but was mostly for a couple of days specially after peeing in the morning. I always thought is was an uti coming and going but I always tested negative for utis. About 2 months ago I had a flare that doesn't want to leave. You all know the misery and discomfort. The thing is for the first time it occurred me to look down there. I have an irritation in the vulva it is red just on one side. It burns like hell. Pee is my number one trigger. I don't have yeast or infection as I had tests done. I had antibiotics vaginal, creams, cortisone... You name it... nothing seems to help. The redness doesn't heal. Did anyone else had red add burning irritation? As i read vulvodynia is an inexplicable pain. The reason of my pain is the irritation... I guess. Thanks for taking the time to read my post. Very depressed...

I'm in the same boat as you!

Post  anikita on Wed May 30, 2018 6:46 am


I wish I could give you an answer to your problem but I just wanted to reach out and say that I'm in the same exact boat as you. I used to always have this burning pain during intercourse - burns but was manageable until one point (in August, it wasn't). Switched doctors two times until one tested me positive for Ureaplasma - YAY, I thought. Everything will be solved. Things were better for a month. I would burn VERY slightly at the start of intercourse but with a great amount of lube, I would become desensitized to the pain and all was well.

I started burning again a month ago and now the idea of sex is just awful. Like you, I decided to take a look and realized that I have these red spots around the entrance. They BURN to the touch but if I coat them HEAVILY in vitamin A & E or coconut oil or aloe vera, it is not as bad which had me thinking maybe it was an issue related to dryness.

But like you, I've tried everything left and right and the redness DOES not heal. There are just two spots that are bright red and cause ALL OF THE BURNING!!!!!! I read online that sometimes provoked vulvodynia has redness around the entrance, whether its all around, or just on the left or right side.

As of this week, my doctor has me on a homeopathic route - baking soda sitz or baths once daily for 10-15 minutes, and manual attempts to desensitize the nerve endings in the area with coconut oil.

I just want you to know that you're not alone and that you are the first person I've encountered in the last year who has the exact burning redness, and that alone is somewhat comforting.

Anikita. Thanks for your answer. I am sorry you are in the same situation. I wanted to let you know that something that seems to be helping is msm. Might be you want to check with your naturopath. For mine made a lot of sense since 'sulfur' is my constitution. I didn't have sulfur as homeophaty handy. So I'm using msm which seems to be working. Fingers crossed. Might be this is something that can help you too.
