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 …

Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:44 pm by JGD13

He said this is …

Post Vestibulectomy

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering


I had my vestibulectomy (full) about a day and a half ago. I was very sick and poorly just after the op and experienced intense pain down there Sad

However, today I came home and have done the following things:

-washed with warm water
-applied manuka honey to the area
-ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

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 …

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 …

Has anyone here ever used Instillagel?

I was given a bacth a few months ago from my GP, but I've not used it yet as my boyfriend doesn't like the idea of trying any sex before I'm better. But I've badgered him about it again today and have just said that it's something else I've been given to try, that's been successful for lots of other people, and if we've already got some we may aswell try, especially if it means we can have sex!!!

So I guess I was just wondering if anyone else has tried it, and what your experiences of it were?

I've been told to just squirt a tiny bit on my finger (it comes in massive syringes!), smooth it around my vestibule, leave it 15 minutes, then wash it off in the shower (so he doesn't get numb from it too!) and then go for it.

She said it should las around an hour, at the most I think. And I know I'll sound like I want to have my cake and eat it too, but that's not long enough! Haha. That's including the 15 minute wash off period too. And I'm just scared that it'll wear off during and I'll die a death of pain!

But my main reason for writing this is just because I wanted to know if it's worked for anyone? I can't even imagine what it's like now to have sex and it not hurt, so it's quite an exciting prospect, but I know not to get my hopes up.

For me it really is just the vestibule that hurts. Something going in/coming out or being turned inside hurts like hell, but actually inside feels perfectly normal so it does kinda make sense that just numbing the opening will make me pain free, whilst still not affecting and pleasure bits!

Any other advice on dryness would be nice too, haha! One of the things my boyfriend says is that I don't get as wet as I used to whenever we do other stuff. I can see why that would be the case, but at the same time I think that's me not the condition. I think I'm subconsciously so nervous worrying about what he's doing/going to do and waiting for the pain to start that that stops me getting as wet as usual, so I guess this gel would help.

But if there's any tips on that issue, let me know! Obviously lubricant's are always an option, but having to stop and squirt some on every few minutes isn't too nice haha.

That's it, the end of the essay! If anyone made it this far, thank you!!

Hiya! A few of us had a bit of a chat about instillagel recently here: http://www.vulvodyniasupportforum.com/t670-lidocaine-beginner-question#4425

As you can see it can help! Way back in the day I used something called xylocaine, which had the same basic ingredients, and that definitely helped with penetrative sex. As for lube I find sylk really good, it doesn't irritate me at all.

Hope it works out for you x

Hi Jemima, I noticed that you said you were dryer than normal and that your pain is specifically at the entrance to your vagina. I just wrote a post about the possibilities of the pill causing pain and wondered if your pain started on or around the time you went on the pill? I have both the problems you mentioned, and I know that certain pills can affect free tesosterone levels (free, not just normal testosterone) which can cause pain specifically at the entrance. So yeah here is the link if you think this might apply to you! Even if it wasn't the pill, your levels may be low anyway causing the pain to be specifically there? I have no idea obviously, but thinking about all possibilites and getting tested for everything can only help! There are specific things that need to be tested and then a calculation is made from the results to figure out free tesosterone, it is all in the book that I reccommend on the post (which btw, has been a life saver for me!)

Good luck Smile
