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 …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

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 …

How I became pain free

Post  richardson42 on Thu Jun 16, 2011 5:21 pm

A few years ago I could be found scouring the internet for a solution to the pain I had experienced since my first sexual encounter.
I think it is important for me to share the one thing that saved my relationship. I struggled with painful intercourse for 5 years, constant yeast infection like symptoms when the doctor found no evidence of anything wrong and months of drugs to combat yeast I supposedly didn't have. I tried dilation, drugs, diets - everything but nothing helped. I suffered with the knowledge that I would have this problem forever and it caused so many problems in my marriage because neither one of us knew how to fix it. One day last summer I decided to stop wearing underwear. After 2 weeks, I was 100% cured of pain and for the first time in my life, I have an enjoyable sex life and insatiable drive. I wear mostly dresses and skirts to avoid any problems - only once after visiting family for 3 days wearing jeans did my condition reappear. A few days at home letting everything breathe and I was back to normal. I hope this helps someone else who feels like they have tried it all.

I find that only gives partial relief. Its awesome that this has helped you so much. But for most of us, it hasnt been that simple.

I wish it was that easy. I have tried that myself to no avail. The burning continued on and on. i wear very soft thongs. they do not put any pressure on my vulva. Unfortunately, sitting puts a lot of pressure on my vulva, even when sitting on a cushion. So glad it worked for you. i don't think that's the norm. Congrats!!!

It is wonderful that that helped you Smile

I wear leggings and soft cotton knickers. I do find that if I come home and put on a skirt with no underwear that it helps but still I get stinging etc if I go to the loo etc

Letting the skin breathe is very important tho, trouble is I cant find any decent skirts that I would look normal in lol
