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 …

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 …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Recovered from Vulvodynia

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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 …

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

Sorry to reply so late! Hi! I'm up to 1400 Mgs so far and still haven't felt any relief. Right now my doctor said to go up to 2500 Mgs. I haven't had any side affects besides a little sleepiness when I go up a dose but then it goes away after a few days. How are you doing on it? How far are you now?

Still nothing

Post  xlmc89x on Fri Jun 08, 2012 2:36 pm

I'm at 1400mgs now and I don't feel any relief, how have you been doing? I've been using a topical steroid for the inflammation as well and I just started physical therapy yesterday but so far haven't felt much of a difference.

Right now i'm up to 2500 mgs and still no difference Sad since november ive been using clobetasol 3 times a week because i have inflammation too.

I called the Dr. yesterday and she said to wait a little bit longer on the neurotin and if still no sign of relief i'm going to tamper off and start something else. This is my first oral medication so im hoping there is something else out there for me. but its still a little upsetting Sad She also said that some women find that when tampering off the meds they realize that it was working when they start to reach a lower dose and we just dont notice it.

Have you tried anything other than neurotin? what are your symptoms?

Well, I had been with a different doctor for a long time taking testosterone but it did absolutely nothing. So this new one put me on the neurontin and clobetasol (which I have been doing every night before bed for 30 days so far) and suggested physical therapy which I just started. I had my initial consultation last week so I'll be doing that twice a week for 60days... I haven't felt any relief either though so far.

Basically I've been told a lot of things. The first Dr. I saw told me that my testosterone levels were low and that it was important to elevate it so I did that for about 18 months. He recommended a vestibulectomy which I did NOT want because it seemed to make no sense to me. So now I'm feeling like my drive is back to zero which is difficult for my boyfriend and I'm still feeling no relief. I've been contimplating adding the testosterone back into the mix to see if it helps at all but it's difficult to be taking so many medications. I feel like a slave to all these drugs. Every night at 9pm I have to start taking my pills and putting on this cream or that ointment. It's exhausting. Basically I have inflammation at the vestibule but the clobetasol seems to bring it down so its much less red until it is provoked again either by an exam or an attempt at intercourse. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED

ugh i know the feeling. i am so sick of the stress, these pills and creams and not wearing cute underwear anymore Sad I have been using clobetasol as well! it has helped with my inflammation but i haven't tried tampering off it yet. I have inflammation and redness in the creases of my vulva and my vestibule. My Dr. said to keep on it until we find a medication that works and then well see where things lead. I just want this to be OVER. It's been almost 1 year since this started and i never thought i would still be having this problem this many months after. I've been trying to keep my head up but its hard when i have to start tampering off neurotin and try a new medication. I wonder what it will be..I am calling thursday to talk with my doctor and find out.

I tried Gabapentin for a few months. I found that it helped suppress unprovoked twinges of pain, but it did not help with pain during intercourse or any other provoked pain. I will say that my side effects were minimal with this medicine, unlike others I've taken in the past. But every woman responds differently to treatment, and every woman's pain is different. Good Luck!
