What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

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 …

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Many years ago i was struck with V, it was painful and got worst and worst, eventually i could not sit, could not stand, could not walk, could not swim in a swimming pool anymore. I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

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 …

ANTI-antibiotics

Post  mmorgan on Wed Sep 07, 2011 3:31 pm

My period just ended and it seems as though I have another bacterial infection. I refuse to use antibiotics as using them for bv the first time put me in this situation to begin with.

What home remedies do you use or have heard about?

I used to take Femdophilus orally but that seemed to irritate my urinary system. Yesterday I broke the pill and just inserted the powdered vaginally. Not sure how long or frequently I should use this method and I'm interested in to know of other methods.

Also I had just went with my best friend to her first pap and she also had BV and they tried getting her on antibiotics and I told her to run far away from those and that I could help her cure it naturally. Evil or Very Mad

I swear being a woman is so complicated, I tell my boyfriend all the time I wish he could understand all this I'm going through. He tells me "If I could switch places with you I so would because I don't want you to hurt". Ahh to have such a great support group, it makes those bad days a little bit brighter. Smile

It's probably not a cure, but try sitting in some warm water with chamomile (tea will work just fine)
It has an antibacterial effect, but it might take a couple of tries.
I usually drink a couple of cups of chamomile tea if I have blisters in my mouth and they're usually gone by the time I finish.

Thanks. I found that sitting in an apple cider and water bath and gently douching with water and hydrogen peroxide did the trick. I love home remedies!
