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 …

Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:44 pm by JGD13

Hi all i am new here.

He said this is …

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

Heya,

I had my vestibulectomy (full) about a day and a half ago. I was very sick and poorly just after the op and experienced intense pain down there Sad

However, today I came home and have done the following things:

-washed with warm water
-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 …

Support Group in Manchester or North West

Post  mblack on Sun Feb 20, 2011 4:32 pm

Hi Ladies

Im new to here but have been suffering from Vulvodynia for a year now with my symptoms being bad since last August.

Ive been looking for support groups in the North West and cant find any active ones.

I for one have never met anyone with this condition and I know it would massively help me to meet other women and see how they deal with it.

Im just really trying to find out if there is anyone in the North West who would be interested me.

There may already be one set up I am unaware of I would love to join.

Thanks

Michele

Hello from near Mcr!

Post  Hoping23 on Thu Mar 10, 2011 11:30 pm

Hello,

Just to let you know i'm in East Manchester (near Saddleworth) if you're ever interested in having a meet up!

I admittedly feel like a bit of a fraud on this forum as my vulvodynia is nowhere near as bad as some on here, although it still seems bad to me, i do feel like a lucky one, even though this condition just came out of the blue and i was a perfectly normal sexually active 17 - 21/22 year old before it and sometimes i have felt like my life might as well be over because of it, i would give anything for a cure (not my husband or cats but almost anything else!! Definitely all the chocolate and sweets in the world!).

Get in touch if you want, either on here or email me, my address is hannah21n@hotmail.com.

Now listen very carefully.... you just email sebby who is the admin and in charge of all things secretive. Ask her what her hobby is. If that fails email Naomi.

See you on the other side.

Oh and I wanted to add that no-one is a fraud on this site (well apart from the person trying to sell us handbags!)

This forum is for anyone with 'vulval pain' as this is what Vulvodynia means...from itching, to soreness to burning with or without provocation..mild or severe.. in other words if ya vulvar dont feel right then this is the site for you!
