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 …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Hi All,

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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 …

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

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)

Re: pain after sex?

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.
