    I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

    Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

    Hi lovely gals!

    I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

    I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

    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 …

    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 …

    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 …

    Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

    Yeast..and sex..?

    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.
