Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

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 …

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 …

Want to try sex again- Contraception dilemma

Post  lisa98 on Fri Apr 29, 2011 9:38 am

So Im feeling a lot better in the lady parts lately and would like to try sex with the help of lidocaine (first time in 3 years- wish me luck!) however, Im concerned that condoms would iritate my skin. I dont want the gel to numb my guy, and Im not on the pill anyway, so I'd need to use one. Those of you on here who are still able to have sex sometimes, do you find that condoms are irritating? do they make hypoallergenic condoms??? and has anyone got some advice for using lidocaine for sex- Ive tried this before and had a pretty miserable time.

Hi lisa98,

I was told to try K-Y Intrigue. My doctor recommends this k-y jelly for sex. I have used it w/ no irritation whatsoever. as for condoms, I don't use them (hubby had a vasectomy),. but i'm going to guess you will be ok w/ the right amount of lubrication. I stopped using my Lidocaine gel months ago because it burned my skin. I have heard it can numb your man so, glad you will use condoms. just make sure you are the one controlling the sex as far as speed and position. I hope you enjoy it. I don't have Vestibules Vulvodynia so i don't have pain upon insertion. i have pain all over the vulva so i pretty much do not want my husband touching me. But, w/ a few cocktails, I usually give in.

Use condoms with no spermicide and/or try non latex condoms.

I havent tried non latex but I would deff give them a go. Trouble is its hard to know if its the condom or simply the friction of sex that leads to the irritation. Best to try a few different ones and see..

Good luck!!!! Smile

Use Sylk lubricant - This is completely natural and [b]will not irritate you. If you need something thicker to help with friction use parrifin I think it is called, my specialist uses this on my with dialator work and it is much thicker.

Non latex comdoms are fine I find but I also find using a condom creates more friction than not using one. I am on the pill though so no worries there.

Also If you get pain afterwards- excuse the graphic imigary but wait untill your partner has gone soft before pulling out. It helps.

Warm bath beforehand helps relax your body but don't use bubble bath. If you have a vibrator or use diolators use these first yourself with plenty of lubricant, helps loosen things up a bit.

hope this helps Smile
