Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico


I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

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 …

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Pelvi Pain

Post  Vivian on Tue May 31, 2011 6:13 pm


I feel like I am at the end of my world.... Do any of you ladies feel depressed and have the why me? There are days I struggle to put one foot in front of the other. just when things seem to be going better something else comes up. That brings me to this question, do any of you have pelvic pain and feel sick to your stomach? This is where I hurt my whole vigina feels like it is on fire somedays other days just around the opening and then there are days that my anus itchess and burns, feels like hemrroids on one side, my back hurts and I feel bloated and to top it all off I am going through menopause..................................
Sorry to vent but I just had to get it out there.. This whole thing has just taken a toll on my life, I am tired and have no energy don't want to do anything except be alone and feel sorry for myself.
And yes I too have second guessed my doctor.. But she is the head of the Pelvic Pain Clinic at UNC Chapel Hill and has helped me soo much. Sometimes i think I have a yeast infection, herpes, hpv, you name it and it runs through my mind that is when i almost go off the deep end. I am very happy married but to set my mind at ease she has tested for everyting under the sun and all is negative. This is a mind of matter thing. And believe me you can drive yourself crazy.. and I almost have.........................
Thanks for letting me vent!!!!! It take a little pressure off of my dear husband.

Hi Vivian and welcome to the forum

Dont apologise for venting we all need to do it!

I to have felt like it is the end of the world and even didnt want to go on anymore. Some days I just cried and didnt see the point in everything else in my life even the good things.

I do often get sickness and nausea. I get it mostly when Im very anxious along with cramps and have been unable to eat. Im not sure if this is just my anxiety or some part of the Pelvic Pain. I to get bloated am very sensitive to the foods I can eat and have always had lower back pain problems. The back pain I know is linked to Chronic Pelvic Pain

What treatments are you on at the moment?

I am on 400mg of Pregabalin and am doing biofeedback

Take Care and thank you for sharing with us

Hi Vivian, It's really OK to vent your feelings - that's what we're here for. My impression is that most people have other types of chronic pain in addition to vulvar pain. I also am going through menopause and have had lots of other symptoms, including severe migraine, exhaustion, arthritic neck and bloating (which I think is a common symptom). I had very heavy periods, but thankfully, they have stopped now and I don't feel quite as exhausted lately. Just lately, my body seems to be reacting to all kinds of things that never bothered me before and my skin has become very sensitive. I'm lucky that I've never really been prone to depression, but I do get anxious and occasionally have days when I just cry all day and want to lock myself away. But I have a very understanding partner, a good family and lots of things to be thankful for, so I don't tend to stay 'down' for long. I've done some research into the psychological effects of pain and it does seem that, when we are feeling anxious and depressed, this feeds into the pain and makes it worse. I know what you mean about the symptoms. I find it hard to understand how my symptoms can vary and I still find it hard to believe that there is nothing to see down there. It is important to try to remain as positive as possible. I do very gentle relaxation exercises and abdominal breathing, which always make me feel better. I think that whatever makes you feel better, you should build into your routine, whether it's exercise, mediation or relaxation etc. Anyway, nice to hear from you. I hope that the forum helps you. Smile

Hey Vivian

Yes vulvodynia can make you feel like you are going crazy and losing your life in the process. Girl I was there for 5 months!!! I now have made peace with my vulvar pain...I take amitriptyline so some days I feel almost ``normal``.

You can vent here anytime !!!!

We know the struggle. The depression, desperation, hopelessness.....isolation of this condition.

Hang in there!

What meds have you tried ? Did any of them work for your pain ?
