    Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

    Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

    Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

    Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

    Hi All,

    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 …

    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 …

    My Vulva hates me!!!!

    My Vulva hates me!!!!

    Post  Sebby (Admin) on Sat Dec 05, 2009 10:37 pm

    I have had Vulvodynia for over 18 months now. Although I can see warning signs previous to this after reading "The Vulvodynia Survival Guide" by Howard I Glazer. Throughout my late teenage years and 20's I had frequent yeast infections and often found sexual intercourse initially painfull at the start of penetration and generally had sensitive skin.
    Then 18 months ago the pain started, burning, soreness, rawness. I thought I had a bad case of Thrush again so got some Canesten and an oral pill. I went to the doctor after it would not go away and had a swab done which did not show any infections. Not really knowing what to do with me he continued to give me more creams, cream after cream...yeast infection creams,steriod creams,anti bacterial creams.
    I was then sent to a GP with special interet in Gynae issues (yeah whats that?, well let me tell you... a cheap way for the nhs to try and treat you without sending you to a hospital consultant!). Again swabs and no infection, I got told I probably had some sort of allergy. So I changed my sanitary protection to 'Natracare products', only used "Dermo Lotion" when showering myself, 100% cotton knickers etc. That particalr doctor then wrote to my own GP saying I probably needed counselling because I cried during the examination. Of course I did...It Hurt!!
    I was also at the time in a relationship and sex was becoming a problem. I could have intercourse only rarely and had to rely on other forms of sexual pleasure without intercourse. Me and my boyfriend eventually split up, mainly for other reasons...(he was an asshole!! lol)
    Well I was then sent to another GP with special interests! This time in Dermotology who had never heard of such a problem and was too embarresed to examine me.....she was a doctor and a woman and she was scared of my Vulva! Well to be honest Im scared of my Vulva!! In the end I begged my GP (I have sinced moved my GP after my old one told me there was nothing more they could do for me) to send me to a Hospital Consultant Gynaecologist. It took over a year on the NHS to be finally sent to a Hospital Specialist.
    I was privillaged enough to be referred to a private hosptial as an NHS patient. The doctor was very sympathetic and I did feel understood. He figured It maybe my hormones so put me on Cerezette (a mini progestrone only pill which can also stop your periods and stop ovulation) I bled for 3 months! and once my periods stopped the pain just continued.
    It was during this period that I came across the term Vulvodynia on the internet and came across Dr Howard Glazer's website "www.vulvodynia.com and his book "The Vulvodynia Survival Guide" When I read up on this condition it sounded like exactly like what I was going through. I have asked at least 3 GP's I have seen if they have heard of the contition and all are clueless, but as the book explains this is quite a normal experience, but why? the reaseach in America has been going on since the 1980's!!.
    The book has given me some hope that I can get help with this condition but at the same time as there are so many different approaches, different explanations on why Vulvodynia strikes and most UK docotors dont seem to have ever heard of it I feel simultaneously hopeless.
    Well I have now in the last month come off the Cerezette and am waiting to see another Gynae at an NHS Hospital as the private hospital have now stopped seeing NHS patients oh joy now I have to see another doctor and start at the beginging again! I see her next Tuesday and I am hoping she has actually heard of this condition and will have some idea of what she can do to help me!
    Firstly the hardest part I find living with Vulvodynia is obviously the pain, sitting down is difficult, buying trousers that are comfortable, walking, and just coping day to day when I get a bad flare up. Secondly I am single again and too be honest this conditon has really put me off even looking for a boyfriend. So Im sorry if I sound down Im a bit nervous about this weeks appointment and well Im hoping this site will give you girls some support and myself some support. Please join.....
