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

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 …

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

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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 …

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

Hi,

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

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? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

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
