Thu May 10, 2018 9:43 am by Rosie21

Hi I have been suffering for some years with this abominable pain.

Thank you I will try to put a link on to some of the research into Gabapentin Gel. Thanks.

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 …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

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 …

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

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. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Thu Apr 26, 2018 11:46 pm by pussycat

Hello everyone,
i am new to this forum. I wanted to share my personal "journey" with V with you and to give you a real hope you can be totally healed/recovered from V. Many years ago i was struck with V, it was painful and got worst and worst, eventually i could not sit, could not stand, could not walk, could not swim in a swimming pool anymore. I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

New Underwear

Post  Joolibee on Sun Jul 03, 2011 9:52 pm

I've recently given in and accepted that proper full knickers are the only ones I can wear. I've been buying larger and larger sizes, only to discover that they still press on my V. Anyway, I just bought some size 24 (over the internet of course). They don't fall down, but feel like the old navy blue school knickers - if anyone remembers them. When I stand, the gussett doesn't even touch my V and they are sooo comfy and cool - (cool in a not hot way, I mean). Defo not sexy, but on the plus side, when the cold weather comes, I could pull them a little higher and they will keep my chest warm Laughing Laughing Laughing

Hi "Ria, they do make very soft thongs that don't touch your V. I buy them my size, but they tend to hang down and don't put any pressure on my V. i have a bunch of thongs to throw away. i'll never be able to wear them. now i buy super soft thongs that put no pressure on my vulva. They are out there. i live in the US. don't know where you live. if you're not living in the US, i can't recommend a store. just keep your eyes open. it's possible. also, who says you can't be sexy w/ regular underwear? for me, i am envious of anyone who can sit on a chair. i look around when i'm out at bars/restaurants and wonder why i'm the only one who has to sit on a damn cushion. oh well! i could be in a wheel chair and that would be far worse.
