    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

    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.

    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 …

    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 …

    Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

    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 …

    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.
