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 …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

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.

Re: Want to try sex again- Contraception dilemma

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
