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 …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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 …

Male visitor

Wed Jan 18, 2017 11:19 pm by outsider

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

How do you use lidocaine gel?

Post  lolainslacks on Wed Apr 27, 2011 8:41 pm

Sorry to be posting so much, I know I jusk asked a question about lidocaine gel, but I have another important one. How do you use it? I'm having a slight panic, becase I was looking up some info online and I saw a question on Yahoo Answers about using it during sex and there were a lot of people saying that you CANNOT put it inside the vagina. Is this true? Because my pain is not external, it is just inside the entrance, and that is where I need to apply the gel when I get it tomorrow. It didn't occur to me until now that you might only be supposed to use it externally.

Please can someone tell me it's okay to use internally? If not I am totally fucked.

Personally I didn't get on with it but there are lots of ladies on www.vulvarvestibulitisrelief.com who have used it and lots of them were advised to soak a cotton ball and insert it just inside the vaginal entrance so I think you'll be fine using it there. For VVS it goes around the vaginal opening before sex so I really don't see a problem at all.

Thank you. Since reading that info I've asked around and people are saying it's okay if it gets inide you. I just had a little panic because I thought I had completely misunderstood how to use it.

Re: How do you use lidocaine gel?

Post  noni on Mon May 23, 2011 11:49 pm

Hey lovely ladies,

I was prescibed Xylocaine (same thing as Lidocaine, I guess) but I do not have vulvar vestibulitis...instead, generalized dysesthetic vulvodynia. But anyways...Im scared to try it.

I have heard it can sting and reading here it seems only VV sufferers use it to numb the pain from sex (???) Still not sure.

What would be the advantage of putting this, down there? Isnt it only temporary anyways?

I'm not sure about the differences between what I suffer from and what you suffer from, and I'm not sure how my lidocaine differs from yours, so I can't say for certain, but I would definately recommend trying it at least. It stings a little at first, it's like a mild burning sensation, but it's really not that bad. And then after five minutes you should be numbed. Not completely though. For me, I'm not aware of feeling numb at all, but when I use my dilators or insert my fingers (both of which are usually agony) there is no burning or pain of any sort.

However, I know that my experiences with lidocaine do not match those of other women. For some women it makes the burning worse, and for some it does nothing at all. It depends on your individual body. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. Good luck.

I recently tried it during a flare up (wow I dont like the few minutes of burning!) but I didnt feel numb!

How much are you using? I think I didnt use enough. I just put it around the entrance. I only used about 2 centimetres of gel..prob not enough...Hmmmm ?? Rolling Eyes

Mine comes in an 11ml syringe, and I use half each time, sometimes more. I spend a minute rubbing it into the hard to reach 'crevices' where my pain is located, making sure everything is well coated. So basically I squirt most of it in/around the entrace, then push it where it needs to be. You do have to use a lot, I think.

The numbness isn't an obvious numbness, like the kind you feel after being at the dentist. For me it's just a relief of pain on contact. My vagina feels normal, but when I touch it there's no burning.
