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 …

He said this is …

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

Heya,

-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 …

New girl from US

Post  shakerite11 on Tue Feb 22, 2011 1:19 am

Hi everybody!

I was just diagnosed with vulvar vestibulitis a few months ago and am super excited to have found a support group! I definitely need it! I'm 18, heading off to college next fall and it's been really hard for me to cope with the idea that I may never have a normal sex life :/ in fact, part of the reason I found out that I had VVS was that I was trying to work towards having intercourse for the first time with my boyfriend and realized how much the 'other stuff' hurt me and thought there was going to be no way for me to be able to actually have sex since those things hurt me so much. I'm one of the lucky ones and only experience pain when I attempt any sort of penetration (including tampons) but I've still been really depressed lately at the prospect of not really being able to enjoy sex ever in my life No anyone have any good advice on that?

Thanks so much for being here! You all seem like an amazing group! Smile

Hi hon and welcome! It's completely shite to end up here but we're pretty nice Surprised) There are a few people your age.

How are you going for treatment? Do you have a PT? It really helps to get your pelvic floor assessed. I've just had mine today woooo!!! She gave me some acupuncture on my ass. That's going to leave a mark. I'm not sure how I'm going to sit down for the next few days.

If you email Sebby she can add you to our FB group if you like. It's completely private, none of it posts to your wall. It's nice to see peoples faces, we're all real =)

Try not to worry too much about this being your life. We're all hopeful and looking for answers. That's not to say we don't get frustrated and swear a bit as well. This is a safe place to do that. Having a therapist also helps a LOT!

Take care
Vicki

@mouse I'm so excited to be in such a wonderful group of ladies. I will definitely see about joining the Facebook group Smile I only recently started thinking about seeing a PT. What will that visit likely entail? I'm a little intimidated haha

Embarassed Thanks girls Im blushing! lol do I get a crown with chocolate orange segments in it! Wink

and welcome Shakerite11 I do hope you can feel supported with our lovely little community

Have a read around there are various treatments we are all trying and we are determined not to give up! we of course do have our down days but thats when we can turn to each other Very Happy

It does seem the treatments for VVS and Vulvodynia are similar from what I have read except that surgery is an option for those with VVS but usually a last resort

Physical therapy is deff worth a try especially to help with pelvic floor and vaginal tightness and spasms. Im soon to try bio-feedback home training via Vulvodynia.com (Dr Glazer's site)

Ive also started Pregabalin (anticonvulsant) for nerve pain (I have constant pain) dr said it may take a couple of months to really know if it is working

A number of us myself included are also trying anti-yeast/suger diets...from the candida theory by Dr Crandell I(I prob have not spelt her name right) Naomi our moderator is our guru on that one Wink

Im certainly taking a multi-disiplinary approach to it!

Beware of any drs telling you its in your head or because you are depressed or anxious. Yes stress can effect any chronic pain condition but research has shown this is NOT the cause of VVS or Vulvodynia.

Take care and my email seems to hate me at the moment so if you wish to join our secret facebook group inbox me on this site
