    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 …

    -ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
    -use frozen peas to stop the swelling

    As of now I am …

    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 …

    Anyone from the PNW?

    Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

    I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

    Constant pain, I want to die.

    Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

    I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

    For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

    what about this? chiro

    Post  grassy on Thu Jul 21, 2011 8:48 pm

    I go to the chiro three times a week for a bad neck. So everytime i go he adjusts my low back, pelvis sacrum, everything. Ten years, three times a week. Can anyone be more looked after then me? how could i have a pelvic floor thing? so i asked him, and he said No, he didnt think so. Not that he is right either. But if anyone ever wants to know anything about chiropractic, ask away. I know alot and practically live there at the chiro's. But i can say one thing. It doesnt help with v pain. Or he would fix it, to shut me up! cindy

    Firstly Cindy a Chiro saying you don't have PF spasm without looking isn't going to know the answer! Nor is a chiro likely to know even if he looked as it's the territory of a womens health physio, physios deal more with muscles and soft tissue than chiros so I wouldn't just take that as your answer. Secondly I was actually in physio doing exercises given to me by this physio when my pelvic floor reached total spasm and I developed V, I asked this physio about it and she told me to get some weighted cones to strengthen my pelvic floor which was the total opposite of what I needed. Again it's the territory of a women's health physio not a bog standard physio, chiro or osteopath. I don't see why there's a problem in going and getting your pelvic floor checked out? No-one can tell you for certain if it's tight or not without testing it but I have just read another of your posts where you describe UTI type symptoms with no infection present and that can be a tight pelvic floor irritating the bladder and urethra. You have nothing to lose by going and getting checked out and as the neck and sacrum are connected in lots of ways this might turn out to be why you've been in chiro for so long. Give it a go, if it's not tight then you'll know for sure and if it is it might be the answer to getting rid of your V.
