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 …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

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 struggling

Post  criv01 on Thu Jun 21, 2018 3:02 pm

Long story short, I've been in pain for 6 months, after giving birth to my beautiful baby boy. After many, many appointments, prescriptions and such...i was directed to a specialist that said I have vulvodynia. At first, I was happy as it seemed to match what I was feeling...and then, I began reading and feel beyond helpless....especially as I woke up at 5 this morning with burning pain around my clitorisis. At this point, I've been prescribed a lidocaine cream...which isn't really helping....just shifts the pain to mostly burning and turns down the intensity by one....and I've done two sessions of pt for my pelvic floor.

I'm struggling mentally A LOT. To be honest, I'm crying and ahhhhhhhhhh! Why did this have to happen?????? I am surrounded by a simple, but good life and I am consumed with my thoughts of pain. I'm trying to tell myself this is the beginning...there are options, but I'm having trouble actually believing this pain can change....I'm fried and just want some relief!! Ugh, I don't know if I'm mentally strong enough for this all right now.

I am sorry you are suffering this horrible condition as we all are on this forum. Also,at a time that should be special with your new baby. I can recommend one of the tryclic antidepressants. Nortriptyline taken at a low dose of 20mgs can calm down the nerve pain you are experiencing. I have been on it for more than 6years now.It took many months to work but within 2 weeks I knew it was changing the pain signals.After 4months l felt ready to go back to work.I still have flare ups but nothing like it was at the beginning.l have read all the stories on this site and many women have found relief with these medications. It may make you sleepy for awhile but this wears off when you get used to the drug.Hope this helps.

I also got severe burning pain from lidocaine......it stimulated rather than deadened the nerve endings.....no idea how, but the pain felt like a scald.

I'm new on here, so sorry if I'm covering old ground (I've read some of the posts, but far from all). Are you washing too often? I say this as I became a bit obsessed by trying to make myself too clean, and it makes matters worse. Secondly....cool plain live yoghourt after washing and left on the skin helps me, it may help you. Messy, but really soothing. Wipe off with very soft toilet tissue.....don't rub as the toilet tissue often contains chemicals which will irritate the skin.
