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 …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Has anyone tried using estrace cream? How did it work for you? This is the first time i'll be using it tonight for the next two weeks to see if it will help with my irritation and itching. Shocked

I really want to try it but my Dr won't prescribe it. I have heard it can burn a bit when you apply it and can make you more prone to yeast infections but some women have excellent results from it so keep us posted.

Re: Estrace Cream...

Post  ilovebaxter1 on Thu Sep 22, 2011 4:31 am

I'm glad to hear good things! Smile My doctor told me to apply it around my vagina and put a little in the opening and that tends to burn (on the inside). She also told me to apply it to the top of my vulva too (these are the places that bother me the most.) However, I have irritation on the inside of my vulva lips as well...I'm wondering if i should add a little cream there too? I'm not really sure what this cream could do to me besides make my skin stronger.

The concern with oestrogen cream and the reason doctors are often reluctant to prescribe it is it's linked to breast cancer, one type of breast cancer is fed by oestrogen so if you're prone to it obviously your body absorbing extra oestrogen could cause problems. The Dr should have asked if there was any history of breast cancer in you or your family when prescribing the cream. It doesn't happen to the majority of women but it does to some, there's a man called Frank on Dr Glazer's guestbooks whose wife developed breast cancer after using oestrogen cream for V but obviously that isn't the normal scenario.
