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 …

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 …

Started a new relationship

Post  noni on Wed Jul 13, 2011 1:29 pm

Hey girls,

Im wondering if you girls can help me out. I have started a new relationship with a man who for the longest time was a best friend for me...and still is. He's a kind and caring man. Nevertheless, I still haven't gotten around to telling him about my condition. I'm scared and I dont know... I feel terrible for not telling him sooner and when I do tell him I'm worried he might go the other way.

Honesty is a big part in any relationship...and I have a track record of being in horrible relationships, so I dont really know the first thing about having a healthy relationship with a man. And vulvodynia just makes things more difficult for me.

Sorry i'm rambling and i'm scrambling my brain wondering how I can break this ''news'' to him.

Thanks for reading

Noni

started a new relationship

Post  ria on Wed Jul 13, 2011 6:24 pm

Hi Noni,

I am so pleased for you. You got me thinking about when I first met my Husband, you know all loved up couldnt wait to see each other, and I wondered what I would do in your situation. I am looking on the positive side, what if your love hormones stop the pain or discomfort and you are ok with him? Why not wait and see how things go. You never know until you try,when your love juices ooz you never know, it may be the best cure so far. Laughing Laughing Laughing Let all your new feelings come to the surface and see what happens.


So thrilled for you Noni, you go girl Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

I totally understand your fear about this, since becoming single I've been thinking I probably should consign myself to being on my own forever now even though I'm only 38 and have wondered if I met someone I really liked how would I tell them. I don't really know the answer but if this guy was and is your best friend then it should be ok to be honest, I don't think all men would do a runner if they knew so I say be honest. It's going to come out at some point when you're getting ready to be intimate so just explain it as best you can. Good luck and I do hope he turns out to be a keeper.

Hi Noni

Im in a new relationship and took advice from a couple of the girls on here that I had a meet up with.

I first said that I had a Pelvic Pain condition and that ment that sometimes I couldnt have sex or 'go all the way'. He was ok with this and then I just started telling him more and more. About the forum, the biofeedback, the name of the condition etc. I had to tell him to be gentle with me in all aspects of anything sexual etc as sometimes even touching would be painful. Once I got the initial 'I get pain and cant always have sex' thing out the way then the rest just followed for me.

He has been great and very supportive and I do hope your boyfriend is the same. It is such a difficult thing to say but once you get the first sentence out the way and see his reaction (hopefully ok!) then you will feel that the rest will follow

I know its scary but take a risk and if he legs it then he wasnt the one for you hun.

Good Luck

Thank u girls for you support and advice.

Sebby-- i think ur right...i should just initially say i have pelvic pain and go from there...

Wish me luck!

This whole V situation has made my life for the past 9 months a living hell and I really would love to focus my energy on other things in life and maybe find a partner who could support me through this ordeal.

Girls we deserve to be happy.

Hi Noni.
That other lady may have been right with the love juices, ha ha. My partner I was with about 10 years ago I could not have sex with once ( we were together 4 years) when we broke up it wasn't long before I was meeting other guys. I told them as soon as I met them on the night or whatever. Then the first guy after the long term one was reasonibly ok, he actually said ot wasn't as bad as he had thought it would be. Then my next partner who I have been with for 8 years slowly got better. at first no sex, then slowly we got to know each other better and things slowly happened. I have to still to this day use Xylocaine cream before sex as it hurts on the outside. We will just cuddle naked as we call it. Then rest there for a while whilst i take deep breaths and relax my muscles which automatically go into spasm. However still try to keep him interested in the mean time or things will go down pretty quickly. Hopefully things will start to happen for you.

Lol Melainie that is very true

I wanted to ask about the anesthetic creams. I have a tube for practise lol I have only tried it once (on my own) and found it does sting at first, although the dr did say that will wear off. I didnt find it numbed me (I was having a flare up) but I dont think I put much on.

I was wondering if it would numb the man also! (would be a very long night if it did lol)

Also how would you apply it before sex? and how long does it take to work?

Thanks

Hey Girls!

I appreciate your advice and feedback. The man i'm seeing doesnt put any pressure on me to put out, so to speak. He is in no rush and he's very gentle. I hope this lasts.

I told him not too long ago that I have ''pelvic pain'' ...he then asked if its short term or chronic...and he wanted to know the name of the condition. I said I would explain at a later time as i'm not very comfortable talking about my condition. I only said that i'm on medication for it for an undetermined period of time.

Anyways... maybe not all men are dogs. Intimacy is ofcourse an important part of a relationship, but there are so many other ways to express that.

@Sebby and Melanie: What am I to do with the Xylocaine/Lidocaine my doctor prescribed me? Is it just for flare-ups or is it to be applied before sex? I'm so confused... does sex cause you ladies pain on the outside or inside...or both???

Grrr.... i'm so confused...

Anyways..take care girls

Luv, noni

When I was given lidocaine (I couldn't get on with it) I was told to apply it to the vestibule 10 minutes before sex. You can also apply some during the day or overnight if you get on with it.

I was actually surprised by how good some men are. The media often stereotypes them into being sex-mad penis driven creatures.

When I told my partner about it I was just bluntly honest. I said I had a chronic pain disorder there and that sometimes I wouldn't be able to have intercourse - although that 'sometimes' is actually 'most times' so I suppose I wasn't too honest! But we find it fine, intercourse isn't the only intimate thing you can do. In fact he's often said sometimes he prefers just hugging than doing anything.

Plus, to be honest, if they do react badly to it then they probably aren't the relationship type character that you want around.

What I have found is that you have to be prepared to hurt yourself a little whilst applying it. The first time I used it, I just squeezed it in there and though that would be enough, but that's not the case. You have to use your fingers to really push it around and make sure it's covering all of the places that hurt you. My pain is right at the entrace, all around there, so I have to insert my fingers and really rub these places. It's painful, but not unbearable. After about five minutes you should be numbed. If you've never used it before, or if it's been a while, it will burn you a little before it numbs you, but that's nomal and it will fade. Also, you do have to use quite a lot of the stuff.

I've only used lidocaine once to try (not before sex) it stings at first and I didnt like that but I am told the stinging gets better the more you use it

I have pain on the outside and inside during sex (mainly just within the entrance). But once I relax and am not so tight intercourse starts to feel much better. I cant always go 'all the way' so often do 'outercourse' as its called. I find that if you start out on top then you can control how fast or slow and by how much he enters you until you relax.

It also helps to be really really turned on like crazy before trying intercourse lol

Penetration from behind also helps me, it seems to avoid him bumping on the most sore bits (around my ureathra and clitoris) and as Sebby said turned on like crazy helps so much. I'd give 40 mins of forplay prior to trying sex.

Also yes lidocane can numb your partner, we have tried. Use condoms. Smile

Lidocane did not work for me at all, but numbed him!
