Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

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 …

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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,

I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

Recovered from Vulvodynia

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New member... so glad to find others like me!!

Hi I'm Emma, and I've just found this forum online. I'm 31 and been suffering from vulvodynia for about ten years now, but was only diagnosed about 8 months ago when I went to the doctor having discovered the info online and asked her if that was what I had. Over the years I've seen more specialists than I care to remember - about 5 different GPs, gyno at the hospital, GUM clinic, had keyhole surgery to test for endometriois, counselling, pyschotherapy etc. I now find it far too painful to have sex and to be honest the thought of sex terrifies me; plus I have very little libido left now anyway.
Over the years I've kept trying to get something to help me ease the pain but generally I find that doctors and specialists are either lacking in knowledge or are just not bothered.
When I found out about vulvodynia about a year and a half ago I spent months plucking up the courage to go back to the doctors and demand that they try to help me again. Since then I've gone onto 100mg of amitrypline a day but I don't really know if its helping that much. I've also been referred to a supposed 'vulval specialist' at my local hospital but she has been very negative so far and basically as good as said there's not much she can do. She is part of the dermatology dept. and has booked me in for patch testing in February, but to be honest I don't know whether its worth going. I'm already well aware of how lotions and potions affect me and only ever use acqueous cream to wash down there anyway.
I've also been referred to a physiotherapist in the gynocology dept at my local hospital and she seems to be the only ray of hope at the moment. Have already seen her twice in a month and she is the most positive person I've met in a long while - very patient and understanding. She is trying to train me to do pelvic floor exercises as my vulval pain has caused my pelvis to become very tight, which obviously affects any sexual contact I try to have.
I have been with my husband ever since my vulvodynia began, and we married in summer 2010, although we have not yet had sex as a married couple. I'd like to have a baby this year but I'm scared that a)I can't have sex to conceive and b) Delivery would be too painful. My husband is really understanding about it all but I always feel such a disappointment and worry constantly that he will go off with someone else to get what I cannot give him.
Is there anyone on this forum who has conceived and given birth whilst having vulvodynia? I'd really like to hear from you about the experience.
Thanks.

Hi and welcome. I've also done the vulval specialist who's actually a vulval dermatologist route, mine was in charge of medication so it might be worth going back to get her to request your GP gives you something different. I'm also on Ami and it didn't help so I've had 450mg of Lyrica added which helps a bit. I've also just started with a positive physio but I have a very unstable pelvis along with my super tight pelvic floor so I have to start with exercises to stabilise that before we even look at the PF issues. Fingers crossed physio works for us!
