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 …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

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 …

HI EVERYONE THANKS FOR HAVING ME !!

Post  joeyjojo on Wed Nov 30, 2011 10:58 pm

Hi my name is Joanne, I'm 23 and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia about 9 months ago. Before that I've been to various gynos and a dermatologist and they had all come up with various diagnosis including recurrent thrush !! !! When I was finally diagnosed I was put straight on an old form of anti ds and a steriod cream of some discription. The cream didnt work and the only thing the anti ds did was make it harder to get up in the morning. I had already been on 100mg of Zoloft to treat my depression and I really wanted to get off them, so the last thing I wanted to do was go on another lot. Needless to say I discontinued both these treatments and have been going it alone.

I have never experienced pain free sex before. I can't even insert a tampon, and when it was time for a pap smear to test it took about 3 attempts for it to actually happen !! it took a sleeping pill and my partner of 6 years to stand beside me and hold my hand for the test to actually happen !! It felt like something was pinching right up inside me and I thought I was going to die. When I told the gyno she said that feeling occures when the muscles arnt relaxed. And do you think I can get a penis inside me?? no way !! My bf and I are in a really bad way!! He doesnt want sex anymore and although he doesnt say anything I think it because he's frustrated cos I keep on wanting to stop because of the pain. Ben and I are each others first sexual partners.

My pain is a burning one which occures all around and in the the vulva and increases during intercourse, urnination and further more increases during my period. I solved the last one by skipping the white pills on my contraceptive pill (always a contriversal subject) and only letting myself get my period every few months or so. The other two I seem to have huge issues with. I have been experimenting with the food I eat and what I drink and it appears that foods and drinks which contain large amounts of sugar increase the pain, foods with large amounts of salt, tomato, red food and drink and strawberries and citrus fruits (anything thats acidic). If I am well hydrated and drink 8 glassses of water a day the symptoms won't be as bad. And just after I do some exercise the pain won't be there AT ALL whilst urinating.

If anyone could give me some drug free tips for reducing this or you have similar symptoms to mine I would really love to hear from you.

xxoo

Hi Joanne, your story is quite a familiar one to this site. As well as cutting out certain foods and drinks you could add calcium citrate to see if that helps, that's based on oxalates being a problem. To me though it sounds very much like your smear test experience has given you the answer and you need to start getting help from a Women's Health Physio to sort out those pelvic floor muscles. A tight PF can cause V and keep it going so it's vital you get going on that. You need to see one who has access to a biofeedback machine so you can see what the muscles are doing and get used to the feeling of relaxing them. Good luck and keep us informed.

pain free this is what I have been doing

Post  ria on Thu Dec 01, 2011 3:53 pm

Hello Everyone,

Its been a while since I have been on the site, the reason for this is that I have been trying to get better and now I want you all to know what I have been doing to be pain free from vulvodynia.

Please look at my past posts to see how bad I was and the different doctors and specialists I have seen. Well I have been following the advice from Dr Robert Morse you can look him up on you tube, he advises a detoxification programme. I have followed a grape juice fast and have turned my eating to raw food I know you are thinking oh noooo Shocked I did but I have never felt so well, I am pain free take no medication at all, I cannot believe it.

Dr Morse is a Naturopathic doctor who helps people with all kinds of problems. I waited until the pain had completely gone before sending this it worked for me. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I know all of you can feel the same way good luck

Ria
