Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

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 …

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.

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 …

Hey, I'm new :)

Post  laura9 on Sun Mar 18, 2012 4:53 am

Hello everyone,

I randomly came accross this site when aimlessley searching around the internet ( I can't sleep). I first noticed signs of vulvodynia when i was 15, I took alittle piece of paper to my doctor with 'vulval vestibulitis' written on it when i was 17, got ignored. Took 2 years to go back at 19 and finally got diagnosed at 22, 3 years ago. (many more bits inbetween but thats the basics).

I have so much anger directed towards health professionals (despite being one myself) especially a lady calls margret, who goes under the job description of psycosexual counsellor. Thinking about it is making my hands shake. I attempt to spend every day of my life ignoring my symptons of vulvodynia. I dont feel strong enough to ever go back to a health proessional and discuss my treatment options.

I am trying to take the first step in no longer 'avoiding' by joining this forum (deep breaths) Smile

Thank you all for making me feel like a mentally sane human!! Laura xx

Hi Laura and welcome!

So glad you have found us! You will find a wealth of information and support here. Well done on taking the first step to journeying out of avoidance.. I have been stuck there many times myself. We all deserve to find relief, and sometimes the best way to do that is continuing the difficult search for helpful doctors, but you will also find several things you can try yourself if you look around the forum.

Unfortunately, dealing with rude, unhelpful and disrespectful medical people is something that most of us are all too familiar with, so you're not alone on that. This is a great place to share, vent and throw around ideas.

Oh, we also have a "secret" facebook group, PM Naomi if you would like to be added.

hello! welcome to the forum.

dont be afraid to ask loads of questions...we all do! and educating the 'professionals' about this condition. Dont get me started on 'specialists'...i can feel my blood pressure rise already!!!

if u fancy joining the facebook secret group you are more than welcome, put names to faces. Message me on here if you'd like to. over the past few years I have met girls on here and on the facebook group that I really consider to be close friends...all deserve medals Smile

hopefully you will gain confidence to start the ball rolling and seek help again. and if you find a lady who lives near you and can recommend you a nice specialist, then all the better!
