Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

He said this is …

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 …

I just posted in one of the forums. I'm a new member, so I hope that's okay. I'd appreciate any responses. I'm really feeling pretty low. Sad

Hi hun,

I read your post in the other thread & thought I’d reply here. I wanted to reply cos I really sympathise with you, honestly your post could have been from me 5 years ago. Big hugs to you.

There are no easy answers cos I know how crappy a situation this is. I know this is not at all what you want to hear but it does seem that you feeling low, desperate and like an object is a direct result of your boyfriend’s attitude towards you and your v problems. My ex said exactly with the same things & at the time I thought well I suppose that makes sense, that seems fair. But when you’re removed from the situation you realise that it’s really not. The sacrifice you are making is living your life with this horrible & unwanted problem. Nevermind adding to that your boyfriend pretty much forcing you into sexual activities that you don’t want to do. You don’t have to justify to anyone why you don’t want to do this or that activity. What he is doing is an out and out guilt trip.

Just think; what if he spontaneously developed erectile dysfunction or sexual pain? Would he put up with the same attitude & ultimatum from you that he is expecting you to accept from him now?

We are all worthwhile & loveable in our own right, v or no v. And painful as it might be in the short term to end things with him, could you put up with feeling this way for the rest of your life if you stayed with him?

I don’t say any of this lightly; I was with my ex for seven years and we were engaged too and owned a house together. But hand on heart, leaving was the best thing I ever did. I needed to be single for a while & get my head together & get my confidence back. And I did find someone who’s more understanding & doesn’t make me feel like crap over the v.

Keep your head held high, we’re all here for you.

Thank you, Liz

I really appreciate your response. It really echoes my feelings about all of this. At this point in the game, he has apologized profusely and has asked me to forgive him. He also really wants to work on things and go to a sex/couples therapist together. My therapist has asked me to refrain from anymore discussion of this until we see the therapist. Thanks for your good thoughts. I am praying that some kind of agreeable solution is reached.

Thanks again, Liz... Smile

No problem, honey! I'm glad to hear your b/f has apologised and wants to work on things. Best of luck to you. Just remember that despite the v, you still deserve to be happy x
