    Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

    Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

    Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

    Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

    Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

    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.

    Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

    Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

    Hello,

    I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

    A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

    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 …

    Cured of Vulvodynia

    Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

    I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

    Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

    Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

    Hi everyone,

    I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

    Yeast..and sex..?

    Post  ilovebaxter1 on Wed Sep 28, 2011 6:58 pm

    finally last night I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend since this has all been happening!(3-4 months) No pain at all just irritation/VERY itchy after! I'm so happy it didn't hurt I was sooo nervous :[. But I'm beginning to think maybe my problem is yeast related? I've been tested with just a regular culture for yeast and have used creams to treat yeast and dermatitis..however, there was no yeast to be found from those cultures. But isn't there other types of cultures/yeast tests? I'm just SOO lost on what would be causing these sypmtoms (itching, irritation, redness after rubbing against underwear.) I had BV twice this year but it was the first time I ever got it way back in december/winter and then AGAIN when all this was happening after I took flagyl. My reg. gyno thinks its vulvodynia and I kind of agree..but sometimes I really am not sure what it could be? I've been doing the same things all my life with no changes..i'm just so confused Mad any advice?

    If there's no yeast on cultures it isn't yeast, don't waste time going down that avenue which I think we all have at some point! If you keep gettng BV it might be an idea to try one of the more natural treatments for it like Biofem gel for a week or so and see how that goes, also I have heard Folic Acid supplements stop some women getting BV. Do you have alot of discharge?

    Hm idk I have always had so much discharge all my life i never know if it's normal or not. Sometimes it is even a greenish yellow color that shows up in my underwear. I've always had this since I can remember. I know BV symptoms are a colored discharge and there can be discomfort but even before i started getting itchy and irritated I had this color. No stds or anything though so Idk...maybe it is BV related?

    I started getting BV in december but when I got it then the only symptoms I had was painful intercourse so I went to the dr. to see the problem and I had bv so I took the flagyl. it cleared up and sex wasn't painful. Since then I haven't had BV until all this started happening in june. The first two cultures I took showed up negative for everything but they gave me flagyl anyways (before they saw my cultures were neg) but nothing helped. Then my third culture is when BV showed up positive so they gave flagyl for the 2nd time in my whole life. The only thing that helped was it wasn't as red down there and the irritation wasn't as bad. No

    I used to talk to a couple of ladies on www.womens-health.com who sometimes had BV and sometimes didn't but had lots of discharge and some irritation, if you go onto that site and into the forum then the gynaecology section there's lots of threads about BV. Repeated use of antibiotics could be a bad thing so if you can use any of the natural methods instead it would be better (carefully though, don't apply just anything), double the recommended daily dose of Folic Acid is one, lots of probiotics is another, one lady found avoiding dairy helped alot etc.
