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 …

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 …

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 …

Hi from NZ!
Just a quick note to connect with you. You want to talk/meet with someone close to you? I understand that.
I was diagnosed in 2005 in Wellington, New Zealand and thought for 5 years that I must be the only woman in NZ who had this condition. But that was not true.
With the internet it doesn't mean that you need to be a few physical miles from someone to share.
Have a look at my blog and know that you are not alone:

Take care,

Not California, but from the USA. If you are looking for a face-to-face meeting with other women with vulvar vestibulitis or vulvodynia, you might put flyers up in gyn offices around the city. You might also call and just ask the receptionists if they know of any support groups. When I lived in Ames, IA (town of 50,000), I was in a support group of 5 women who found each other through common doctors (this was back in the early 90's before the internet as we know it now). It was very important to my sanity. I also joined the VP Foundation and was able to call and eventually meet many women with vulvar pain. I'm sure there are a lot of women in San Diego with VP. For such a big city, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a support group already.

Hey, I'm in San Diego! I'd love to talk to someone in my area! I'm also interested in talking about your experiences since I'm still on the fence about if I even have vulvodynia. Somethings definitely wrong but I'd love to talk. Let me know Smile

Still Looking?

Post  crypticcalico on Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:38 am

Hello, I hope this finds you well. I don't know if you're still looking to meet up with someone. In case you are I am in Long Beach and am interested in meeting. It'd be nice to have someone to talk to (in person) about this besides my doctor.
