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 …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

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 …

Hi girls... I live in Australia.
I am currently undergoing a new treatment for vulvodynia. Just wondering if anyone else here has tried it. It's Endep in the form of cream to apply directly on the area. I dont know if anyone else has tried this but so far evidently it has had a 50% success rate.
Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

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 …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

My name is Eliza Barach and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia in October of 2017. I'm also PhD student at the State University of New York at Albany. I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

New and desperate for advice

Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

Want to try sex again- Contraception dilemma

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
