Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci


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 …

-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 …

feeling really down this evening

Post  maryjane on Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:05 pm

Hi everyone

Just came on to just say I am feeling really down this evening. As I have said in my last post I have been really lucky and haven't had this dreadful pain for about 4 years but it has flared up again. I have started taking Amitriptilene which helped before but I know it will take a while. The pain is quite bad tonight and I suppose I am feeling sorry for myself but the thought of having this for another few months or more depresses me. I look around at everyone else and think how lucky they are and I ask why me. Sorry for being so negative but it is nice to be able to say how you feel to people who understand the pain Thanks for listening Sad

Hi Maryjane,

Feeling down is part of this crap! Don't beat yourself up you have every right to be mad and sad. Be gentle with yourself and just blob out for a while.

My focus became not letting the dips in confidence be too deep. That worked most of the time. My therapist will tell you (hahhaa if she could) that I had completely crazy times and would email her out of desperation. God I don't know how they do it.

Having someone to unload too takes the pressure off. I found my friends lack of understanding frustrating. People just don't understand unless it's happening to them. Have you got someone to unload to Maryjane. We are all here for you!

Take care

Hey Maryjane

We have all been there (some of us still there) just down in the dumps...i mean waaaay the fuck down!!! Read my post ``Feeling Really Low``...

I have a feeling you will be getting better soon, just be patient girl.

In the meantime, feel free to unloud here and know that we TRULY know where you are coming from! Today I walked out of my doctors waiting room after waiting 2 hours just to see my GP to get my blood work back!! I said F this.<

This is a beast that we are constantly fighting off. I have done a total 180 on my life. Changed my diet, clothing, activity level.

When I am stressed i just go on youtube and listen to zen meditation music, it helps me sometimes. Other times, I try to occupy my time with crafts, etc....to keep my mind off this crap condition.

Were here for you...

Your V sister,<

Hi Maryjane, can relate you how you feel hun. I have been feeling like a mad women over the last week or so! When I get like this I have to say to myself just take one day at a time.

If that is too much I just take one half hour or even one moment at a time and try to do something to take my mind off the feelings

Yes unloading on here, with a friend, family or therapist really does help. I been crying on and off for a couple of days, its pmt time again grrrrrrrrrrr

Keep strong and we are all here for you and understand how you feel
