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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

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 …

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 …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

Mistaken for STD?

Post  libby0327 on Wed Jun 01, 2011 6:54 pm

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone else had been to the GUM clinic as they mistook this condition as an STD? I've had all the tests under the sun, and as my pain often worsens with alcohol I thought I'd contracted herpes as I was experiencing cuts and blisters also. After being tested twice the swabs have both come back negative and I've been told to research this. Just wondering if anyone else had gone through this, and I just feel like every time Ive had sex for the past year i've immediately gone red for a few hours until it dies down. I'm not sure if this is a symptom of vulvodynia, guess I'm just trying to understand it all Sad

I went to a GUM clinic but only because the doctors were messing me around and I thought this was more a GU issue than anything else, the GU consultant I saw was fantastic. I know tiny cuts can be a symptom in vulvar vestibulitis syndrome but I've never heard anyone mention blisters, are you itching at all? I'm just wondering about an allergic reaction to something, blisters is very odd and I've never seen them mentioned in any literature about V. And yes sex will worsen symptoms.

hi, thanks for your reply.

well I only started having blisters at the beginning really, which eventually just turned into redness constantly with the pain worsening with alcohol. I was having a lot of itching which was thrush and I felt alot of relief when I was given treatment for this, and the cuts have also subsided. But I still feel a burning with redness regularly.

As far as I know....cuts and blisters are associated with NEUROPATHY .

With neuropathy you get redness, extra hair growth...but also cuts.

I get the cut marks too. On my upper right thigh.
