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 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 …

Hi girls... I live in Australia.
I am currently undergoing a new treatment for vulvodynia. Just wondering if anyone else here has tried it. It's Endep in the form of cream to apply directly on the area. I dont know if anyone else has tried this but so far evidently it has had a 50% success rate.
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 …

Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

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 …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

My name is Eliza Barach and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia in October of 2017. I'm also PhD student at the State University of New York at Albany. I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

New and desperate for advice

Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

9 years of pain

Post  Guest on Mon Aug 29, 2011 6:28 am

I haven't been on this site for a while. I was going through couple therapy because of the lack of sex (vulvodynia) and other problems and my husband not being about to cope with it. We did the couple therapy for a while but he has decided he doesn't want to try anymore. Hope this doesn't scare anyone with a partner just hanging on. My husband has other problems contributing to it. The couple therapist has told me to see my gynaecologist again and ask for further therapy. Plus she has asked me to see my local doctor to try Antidepressants. Don't know what for now. Not much use now. Why does this horrible thing happen to us. Besides my best friends partner is recovering from Prostate cancer and sex is off the books now for two years but my friend isn't even considering leaving him. Sex is only one part of a relationship. I don't understand why he has to go. My 12 year old son is devastated.

Re: 9 years of pain

I know exactly how you feel, my partner of 13 years dumped me for someone else 6 months into my V problems because he couldn't take the lack of sex. However when he was having some erectile dysfunction problems it never occured to me to leave him. I think we've been very unlucky and it doesn't seem to be the norm as there are girls on here starting new relationships with V. I say if they want to go let them, we're both much much more than just sex objects and if they turn out that shallow then let some other unlucky woman end up with them. Attempt to get on top of your pain for yourself, so you feel like you again and try not to worry too much about your son, kids are very adaptable and he'll bounce back with time and love. So will you. x

I'm just going through a break-up myself, my partner of four years didn't know how to deal with this condition and couldn't stand the fact that we couldn't have sex, and that the vulvodynia (and lack of empathy and support from him) has killed my sex drive. He wouldn't talk to me about my condition. We tried couples counselling for 6 months, and then he stopped coming. Sounds like a similar story to yours.

It has been a horrible and traumatic experience to go through, and I can't even imagine how you must feel since you also have a child together. I hope your man will realize that vulvodynia is a problem that is way more common than people think, and realize that you are more than worth the time and effort required to find how to manage your pain.

And if he doesn't realize it, he is not worthy of your love. Yes, sex is part of a relationship, but really it is just a tiny part. It must be put on hold and adapted when one partner has problems come up.

All I can say is, don't stop loving yourself and know that you are not alone.

9 YEARS OF PAIN

Post  Guest on Fri Sep 09, 2011 8:09 am

Well my husband has left and has found himself a place to live. I suppose all the women are throwing themselves at him now. lol! He says he has depression because of our lack of sex. Unless he is seeing prostitutes I can't see him linking up with anyone. Who's fault is it then. He says he has been suicidal. Who has ever heard of a suicide letter saying it is because he wasn't getting sex. It was the lack of communication on his part that caused the marriage breakdown. Not lack of sex. Anyway I will have to stay focused on fixing the V even though doesn't seem a need for it but maybe one day I might find someone else who is really into me and I want to be healthy for him.
