From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25


I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

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

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured


Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without?

Hi hun

I can get pain just about anywhere within the vulval area.

it is mainly the Vestibule part but over the last 6 months or so I have developed stinging and tenderness around the urethra. It got so bad once I had to take a good look lol and it looked red (Im not sure if it was suppossed to be lol as I had never really looked at that part before) and when I touched the tissues it was soooo stingy! It kinda comes and goes. but of course anything rubbing the area when it is sore, makes it flare up. Im gonna ask at my vulval clinic appt about this

I can relate your anxiety about the vulvodyina diagnosis. The problem is that the diagnosis is just a description of symptoms and doesn't indicate the cause, so we are always left wondering whether some underlying issue has been overlooked. I was sure when I was diagnosed that really I had a yeast infection, as I had exactly the same symptoms as when I had them many times before. However, the last test came back negative so it was diagnosed as vulvodynia. I've since read theories about candida (the cause of yeast infections) turning into its 'red form' and burrowing under the skin, continuing to cause irritation but leading to negative test results and I think this may be what's going on, as the symptoms still respond to antifungals (e.g. drinking cinnamon tea).

As to my symptoms: I get itching or burning pain (which increases with any kind of contact) around my vulva and anus. I also get lower abdominal pain and digestive discomfort at the same time usually. Sometimes I get the UTI-like symtoms around the urethra you describe when peeing also, it comes and goes.
