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 …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

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 …

Hey everyone,

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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 …

Male visitor

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

contraception and the smear

Post  cassyc5 on Fri Aug 19, 2011 7:45 am

Hi girls,

I really need some advice. after speaking at length with the lady i usually see about 'down there' we came to the conclusion that an IUD would be the best form of contraception for me. I have have side effects from several versions of both the combined pill and the other pill, The depo causes me to become low on estrogen which causes the vulvodynia to get worse, and due to very sensitive skin i cant use condoms. While I can't currently have sex, I am slightly paranoid about the high rape rates and if my partner and i decide to go further one night when it isnt so painful. However, she herself could not insert it and so she sent me to the family planning clinic. I was seen by a woman who spoke very poor english. I informed her of my vulvodynia, but she didnt seem to understand. I told her that i couldnt have sex as it caused quite intense pain and that i often get a stinging itch and burn. she didnt seem to understand completely and when on to inform me that in order for them to agree to put it in i had to have a vaginal swab done. she then went on to ask me about the smear. I told her that my doctor had advised against the smear as when the "duckbill" tool is opened it causes alot of pain. she didnt seem to understand and pressured me into having the vaginal swab done at least. she didnt inform me that this would involve the same tool, and when she inserted it i told her that it hurt and could we please take it out. she proceeded to open it and while i was crying in pain took not only the vaginal swab but the smear as well. I left feeling like id been attacked and raped. it felt like someone had honestly ripped me in two down there. I am currently trying to get ahold of the complaints procedure but cant seem to find a contact number or anything. I dont know what else to do. I feel horrible. I cant even look a myself down there at the moment and I constantly want to cry. I know I am probably sounding pathetic and whiny, im sorry, but please I need some advice.

Oh no, what a terrible experience! Sad You do not sound pathetic and whiny, you are very rightly upset! Keep trying to get ahold of whoever you need to to complain about this woman. Don't give up. Also you maybe should look down there a bit just so that if you do end up having to report this woman "doctor" you can say if you saw any damage or not....I'm sorry Sad *hugs*
