Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Am learning to drive

Am learning to drive

Post  Sebby (Admin) on Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:01 pm


Hey all

I recently took up driving lessons again and am hoping I dont give up again this time!

Im such a nervous driver Shocked

I'm also quite hard on myself and should realise I am bound to make mistakes and its all part of learning

I do think I have found the right instructer, he is firm with me as well as understanding. He has a good sense of humor too which with me in the car he really needs! Laughing

Any advice welcome Smile

Re: Am learning to drive

When I learnt to drive back in 1994 I found it useful if the instructor told me why I was doing things, like I had to know why I was pressing the clutch at certain times so I knew in my head when I needed to do it, what can I say I'm a little bit odd! I also found it helpful when he pointed out that people who have already learnt to drive do silly things like stall etc and once you've passed your test you don't feel so self conscious about it and he's right, once I'd passed if I stalled I wasn't bothered!

I failed my first test because I let the nasty examiner get to me so stay as calm as you can is my advice, everyone's nervos to start with but it gets less daunting as you go along. Good luck!

Hey Sebby,

If you like the instructor it helps. I failed first time and my instructor was a right old git, but the second instructor was strict but had a sense of humour and I passed. My friend had a really dishy instructor and all she could think about was how attractive he was, she failed her test as she spent most of her time wondering what to wear for the lessons and not the highway code. Laughing Laughing

Keep at it and your confidence will grow. Its great driving with the right music on, takes all the worries away, helps me relax.

Good Luck,

Ria

Having the right instructor is so important. I didn't start learning to drive until I was in my late 20s. I was so nervous I used to get the runs before every lesson. I failed my test twice and, dopey as I am, it was only after my second failure that I realised the instructor was more interested in tryingng to get off with me. He actually said that if I passed the next time he would let me give him a kiss. That's how obvious he had to be before I got the message. All his double-entendres about the gear stick completely went over my head. I can't believe I tolerated this, but I was so nervous and he was the one in control. Anyway, I found another instructor who was brilliant and really helped build up my confidence. Unfortunately, I got the infamous dragon of an examiner and bottled my third test, but 4th time round, with the same horrible examiner, I sailed through it. Passing my test was such a liberating experience. Can't say I'm a keen driver, but it freed me up to do so many other things. Good luck Smile

The instructor who was trying to get off with me was anything but dishy - he just thought he was. I was married at the time and when I told my husband about what this guy had been saying, he couldn't believe my naivete. He just thought it was funny - perhaps he thought I was too dopey to be attracted to anyone else. Maybe I was at the time Wink Wink
