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 …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Need advice pleassssseeee.....

Post  bellpark on Fri Jan 13, 2012 1:59 am

Hello, I am 40 and I have a six year girl, a three and a half year old boy and an 11 month old girl....
I have been suffering with Vuvodynia for nearly 6 years and just don't know where to go next, I am hoping someone out there can offer me a solution that is in Melbourne Victoria and can help me cope with the constant pain. I have seen numerous specialists to no avail and have seen a Physio once but I am not too keen on pursuing it any further.
Please give me some advice as 6 years is a long time.....

Hi there, could I ask why you aren't pursuing physio? It's been shown to help alot of the time and I just wondered why you've stopped after one session?

Thanks very much for taking the time to reply, I haven't actually stopped physio yet I am in between sessions and have read a lot about dermatologists and wondered if I should pursue that instead... After 6 years I just don't know which avenue to take at the moment. During those six years I have had three children so I haven't taken the time to go to many doctors but now I am going to make an effort. I thought it was a skin condition rather than a physio's field...
Do you think physio is worth giving a try?

Although challenging, a low oxidant diet combined with nightly estrogen cream and xanex has given me a lot of relief on a daily basis. I still do not feel well though and sex and tampons are not a possibility. I am therefore, considering the surgery. I have been suffering for 5 years and this past year has been the worst. Hope this helps.
