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 …

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 …

Hi Im from Australia :)

Sat Jan 08, 2011 1:08 am by emma

Hi girls... I live in Australia.
I am currently undergoing a new treatment for vulvodynia. Just wondering if anyone else here has tried it. It's Endep in the form of cream to apply directly on the area. I dont know if anyone else has tried this but so far evidently it has had a 50% success rate.
Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

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 …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

My name is Eliza Barach and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia in October of 2017. I'm also PhD student at the State University of New York at Albany. I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

New and desperate for advice

Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

hi my name is nikki. i just joined, im looking for support. hoping to find people who can relate and help me through this. I have had pelvic/vulva/vaginal pain for the past 2 years. when i first came down with the symptoms i had never heard the term 'vulvodynia' before. it wasnt until about a year ago most things had been ruled out by drs and i was diagnosed with this. i refuse to accept this as my diagnosis. because there is little known about this disorder, no known cause or cure?! i have many theories as to why i have this chronic pain disorder. but have been to several doctors and have yet to find a good who will sit down and listen to me. i feel like im just another patient to them, like they dont care and most have no real knowledge of vaginal issues. so this is very frustrating. i dont have much support in my life, its hard to explain to my boyfriend what i am feeling. ive become very angry/depressed since this all began. i feel i am too young to be having these kinds of problems and its just not fair Sad i wish there would be a breakthrough and doctors would figure out what the hell is wrong with us...it is a mystery. my urologist said they have seen this all across the boards. and from the looks of the onine forums it is affecting A LOT of women. this is not rare but it is unheard of to most. i have a hard time explaining to people. so i just say "im sick" or "dont feel good" i dont want to go on living my life like this i need to find relief i need to find answers so im really hoping this helps me to take charge of my health and to find people that are struggling as well.

The problem is vulvodynia just literally means "pain in the vulva" so it doesn't explain why it's there and as there are a variety of causes it's finding the correct one to treat it. You'll see lots of stories online about how vulvodynia can't be cured but it's really laziness on the doctors part for not investigating every cause. A good book to read is When Sex Hurts as it goes through the causes of V and helps you work out what's happening. Vulvodynia isn't a diagnosis as far as I'm concerned it's a doctor telling you what you've already told them, that you have pain in the vulva.
