Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

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 …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Is this Vulvodynia!?!

Is this Vulvodynia!?!

Post  VaxilRae on Wed Aug 31, 2011 6:50 am

Hi guys!

I am so glad I found somewhere who might be able to tell what these strange symptoms might be!
I'd like to share my story, I apologize if I get graphic, I will try not too bad.

The first time I ever experience 'the burning sensation' it lasted for 6 hours but never came back.

I started on the Micronor mini pill, and after taking it for two weeks, one day after removing a tampon, it was like my entire vulva was burning with pain! I dont know how to describe it except similar to maybe an insect bite, that warm burning sensation. The only thing that made it feel better was peeing and not wiping afterwards.

It eventually went away, but now every single week, at least 3-5 times a week I will get this same burning sensation in my vestibule area!
It's not muscles, I can have sex normally and use tampons fine, its like the skin at the opening of my vagina and labia minor just BURN with pain. Sometimes I bath takes it away, other times a bag of ice between my thighs, and at the last attempt taking a narcotic pain killer.

I've been STD tested and I am completely free, no infection, no BV.....its very hard to get to the doctor to check this because I cant just go in when it happens mostly in the evenings and disappears within an hour two.

Is this vulvodynia or something else?

It is vulvodynia because that just literally means "pain in the vulva" but it's important to attempt to figure out what causes it, as it comes and goes it might be an idea to write down everything you do, eat, put near the area so you can figure out if there's a common factor that could be causing it.

Have you changed your laundry detergent? Try switching to something without fragrance or dyes.
What soap do you wash with when you bathe? Try just plain water or Dove hypoallergenic.
Does it burn every time when you wear tampons? You could be allergic to the kind you are using.

Like said above write down everything your eating, food can play a role in the dreaded sensation.
Orange juice increases my burning sensation from a 2 to an 8.

Hope to hear back from you.
Very Happy

Advice

Get off the pill and get your hormones tested.

My pain is way, way better off the pill. I am awating a baseline hormone test (saliva) to see where I am at. The pill screws with your oestrogen and testosterone, this can in theory cause problems with the skin of the vulva.

Thanks for the replies guys!

I went off the pill MONTHS ago, and my burning does not seem to be related to laundry detergent or tampon usage at all. When I am burning tampons are painful to use, but they themselves do not cause it by my observation Neutral

The only thing I've noticed that relates to it, is peeing! 70% of the time the burning starts is after I pee, wipe, and flush. I have no STDs or infections, vaginal or urethral.

I am so frustrated I have been needing to take more and more narcotics to get rid of the pain!

I have noticed that with mine as well. I feel completely normal when I sleep but as soon as I do my morning void the sensation awakes. Try keeping a food diary and see which foods could be causing this.

Bicarb Soada

Post  Aussie on Tue Sep 06, 2011 11:56 pm

Your morning urine is the most acidic. Try drinking one t spoon of bicarb soada in a glass of water it will alkalise your urine. Follow the IC diet on the IC Network. If the urine burns then alkalising it is the best bet.

Hope this helps.

what is so confusing is why does it not always happen? Like I mentioned a high percentage of the time is does, but not all the time. Why does the burning last for so darned long after peeing? Even washing off with water doesnt help. I still burn!

Sometimes it effects me while other times it doesn't. It's hard for me to pinpoint what is causing my discomfort but I can say that my pain level has shot down from an 8 to a 2 or 1. Try writing a dairy of what you consume. I found drinking nothing but water has helped alot and in-taking tons of fluids. There is a light at the end of this condition. It's just sad that you have to fight for yourself to get better and kind of be like your own doctor because it is rare to find a doctor that is knowledgeable about this condition. You will get there.

Post  grassy on Wed Sep 07, 2011 8:39 pm

I sleep all night, get up. First pee and i feel like needle pricks and burning. Then during the day, i feel better after i pee. Also after a poop i sometimes get a polka red hot burning up the entire v area. Like red hot pepper. It lasts a minute and dis appears. I also get this sensation my urine is hotter then my body. Has anyone ever wondered if they were allergic to cotton underware???? I'm wondering if maybe the underware has re= cycled garbage in it? now a days you never know. whats in a product.
I am making some progress being on a once a week diflucan. To supress any yeasty beasties. But This has taken 10 weeks, and only a 50 percent improvement. I'm going to get some calcium citrate and add that. I'm 50, so menopause may be complicating things. who knows? FOUR doctors dont! i just guess and ask ladies on the internet what they think. I have found they know more then the doctors anyway! for sure! cindy
