From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

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 …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation.

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 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
