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 …

As of now I am …

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 …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

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 …

pain after sex?

Post  rayster on Thu Dec 08, 2011 10:23 am

Helluuoo

I'm 21 years old, have had a shitty vagina since I was about 17 (3 months after having sex for the first time). In September of this year (after seeking help cause my pain was getting annoyingly worse) a gynecologist decided to try the laser treatment. I stupidly agreed, and have been in way worse pain ever since. I went back to see him at an earlier follow up appointment cause I was still in so much pain, but it was terrible. This guy had already decided what he was going to say to me before I walked in the door. He told me that my increased pain was due to my increased anxiety (mm..) and I should see a psychosexual counselor. Now, I'm not at all adverse to things like that and I think that psychosexual counseling definitely has a place in treatment... but... not for me I don't think, and I'll explain why in a sec.

Basically what's been happening is now whenever I try to have sex, first my skin tears (I'm assuming this, cause there's always blood, in varying amounts afterwards) (smear tests are up to date and fine, and i'm pretty sure the blood is coming from the vulval skin) and I have a new symptom that I've never really dealt with before: I can have sex (with the assistance of lidocaine) and it's all fine and dandy (sore, but I want to, so I do) and until about 10-15 minutes after wards where I am crippled, completely with pain to such a degree I've never felt. I can't move, I can't think, I feel nauseous, the pain throbs and I can feel my pulse down there (like when you burn your finger or something, and it pulses with pain) and for a couple days I cringe every time I sit down, until it goes back to normal.THis is not normal for me. Usually I end up with burning sensation that is very uncomfortable and sore, but I've always been able to cope. Not now.

When I told this gynaecologist that I think its to do with the laser he said 'there's no way the laser would have anything to do with it, it would have all healed by now so its due to your anxiety'
...some how I don't think so. I've done a pretty good job of dealing with my anxiety surrounding this stupid condition and although it knocked me off my confidence for a while when I was first diagnosed, I since became comfortable in my own skin again and felt sexy and whatnot. I've been in two lovely relationships since I was diagnosed (still in the second one) and sex,although infrequent as it has been, hasn't presented a huge a problem for me - which is why I'm not so sure if my problem is 'psychosexual'.

my hope is that with lots of patience and more time (cause it was only in September) this extreme pain after wards will go away... does anybody else get this?


sorry bout my rant. Am in a bad mood and don't know what to do next.


I'm not really a huge fan of wanting to try things like ami or gabapentin cause I had a horrible time on pregabalin. (and it didn't make a difference anyway)

I can't speak from experience because I've never got to the stage where sex is possible but I think if you're experiencing tears now it might be an idea to leave it for a while and let the skin settle down a bit before you try again, pain like that after sex isn't going to help you at all. There are bits of information online about how the laser treatment can make things worse, I think there's some on Dr Glazer's site so it does sound like it was that that caused this new problem. Give it a bit longer and see what happens is my advice, if it doesn't help change doctors if that one isn't being helpful.
