    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 …

    -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 …

    Devastated :(

    Post  IcedTea on Sun Jan 29, 2012 2:25 am

    I'm a 22 year old university student and found out I have localized provoked vulvodynia about 2 months ago. I struggled with symptoms for about 2 years but was repeatedly told by numerous doctors that I just had a yeast infection. I began dating my first boyfriend about a year and a half ago, and completely new to sex, thought pain was normal. But after months of trying I realized something wasn't right. My boyfriend and I struggled for so long thinking it was psychological issues, I wasn't comfortable with him, I wasn't attracted to him even though I knew it wasn't anything like that...I'm completely in love with him. I met a wonderful gyno at my university who referred me to a physiotherapist and I've been working with both to improve my health and sex life. However, my boyfriend was getting increasingly frustrated. He would flip between being incredibly supportive and being extremely unsupportive. Our relationship was an emotional rollercoaster, he would be prince charming in the morning and frustrated, irritable, and angry that night. I think he was as supportive as he could have been but once I began treatment he avoided me at night, avoided intimacy, became very distant. He tells me he loves me but our dysfunctional sex life is consuming his life and tearing us apart. We broke up and got back together numerous times but broke up for good 2 days ago. I'm completely devastated...I feel like I did all I could but perhaps I should have done more? Is he being selfish or was I? I wish with all my heart this had turned out differently and I wouldnt have lost someone I love. I've never experienced a break up and as it was only 2 days ago I realize my thoughts are clouded with emotion but I feel completely devastated, defeated, and lost. I know this is probably for the best and I deserve someone who is willing to support me but I dont even know what good sex is, I didn't understand what our relationship was missing. I feel completely sick about it. I joined this forum to find someone I could relate to...my friends are all virgins or have never had bfs and I dont really have any guy friends to ask for advice. Someone please help me...my heart is in a million pieces!

    Love isn't all about sex, if you arnt able to have it he should have respected that and accepted that. There was nothing you did wrong! Some men are just selfish. There are some out there who are supportive of this condition and of the women that have it. I would use this as fuel to the fire on keeping up with treatment plans and exploring all options to get better.

    Keep your head up,hun. Your a beautiful strong woman, don't ever let a man get you down. Smile

    Hi,

    I've had some similar experiences with vulvodynia (doctors saying its a yeast infection or whatever else suits them at the time) and similar experiences with my boyfriend. He remains supportive with me but I can see he thinks I am unattracted to him.

    What I believe is this: even the most supportive and understanding guy in the world won't comprehend what we're going through unless he (or she,a friend lover mother whatever) has been through something similar.

    Furthermore, men, while they will try to be supportive at the end of the day they have sexual needs that aren't being satisfied. Maybe this is cynical of me but I have seen how men are governed by their sexual impulses. It isn't our fault but maybe it isn't their fault either.

    Maybe this will be a good thing for you, while you may not see it right now. It gives you an opportunity to focus on helping yourself. Your dysfunctional relationship probably stressed you more emotionally and physically. Maybe when you are in a more positive state you guys can give it another go?

    Things will look up

    I agree with Morgan. You will eventually get over him if you havent already. Men are pigs, and selfish! There are nice understanding ones out there. I have been with my bf for the past 5 yrs and he is very understanding about it. He never asks me for sex, instead he asks for a handjob. You will find the right one in time. A respectful man will never push sex on you. He will wait till you are ready. Never ever agree to do something unless your heart and body are telling you too. NEVER have sex with a man just because he wants it! Sex is ment to be enjoyable for both male and female. I dont meant to alarm you. Dont push yourself, you could potentially make it worst.
