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

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 …

I don't even know where to begin....

Post  Charlotte32 on Mon Dec 12, 2011 12:17 am

Well I suppose this started about 4 years ago I'm 21 and I've had problems ever since the first time I had sex. I've never been properly diagnosed by doctor but I think I have a combination of vulvodynia and vaginismus. I have severe pain during penetration and I occasionally experience a burning/itching/stinging around the entrance to the vagina. I have given up on my doctor she initially treated me for thrush and that didn't work I then tested positive for chlamydia and was treated twice for this then when I went back for the same symptoms she referred me to a gynocologist who was the most useless doctor I have ever met he simply told me that he couldn't find anything wrong and when I asked about my problem he said good luck with that. My gp never mentioned it again and she refuses to listen when I say that pelvic exams are too painful I end up leaving in tears and she has no sympathy I haven't been back since because she makes me feel like a hypochondriac I'm just feeling really lost I've only been with one guy and that ended badly 2 years ago Ive just met someone new and its flaring up again and I'm really scared that I will lose my chance with him because I'm embarrassed about my condition I just dont know what to do anymore I would really appreciate any advice. Sorry for the long comment =/

Hi Charlotte, don't apologise we can all post as much or little as we like. I would firstly suggest a new doctor, that one sounds like a thoughtless bitch so wave her goodbye. Then I would recommend a women's health physio for a pelvic floor check, especially as the thought of telling or sleeping with a new partner is flaring things up, could be you're like alot of us and a habitual clencher so definitely make that your next step! Have a good look around at other posts and feel free to tell us anything, we're all in this together.
