    I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

    Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25


    I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

    To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

    I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

    Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured


    Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

    Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

    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 …

    New and desperate for advice

    Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

    I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

    Can A Cut In Vestibule cause Vulvodynia?

    Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:07 am by rockylife

    Can a cut in the vestibule area cause vulvodynia? Is it possible that some nerve a were damaged that’s why I feel this pain in my area without visible lesions?

    Sanitary towls, panty liners and tampons

    Post  Sebby (Admin) on Wed Jul 21, 2010 7:44 pm

    Hi Girls

    Have you found that you can only use certain brands/types of Sanitary protection?

    I dont use tampons, never liked them far to uncomfortable and I wouldnt even bother now with the pain.

    I tried Natra Care and had to order them online as they are 100% cotton and orgainic, didnt make a difference and also tried boots cottons.

    I dont even bother with panty liners anymore

    Recently I have found that I can use Always Silk with the most comfort.

    Only a couple of months ago I forgot to buy the Silk and was at work and only had normal towls so I took the chance and I was in so much pain! I went back to the Silk but was then in pain for 2 weeks straight!

    These last two periods I have only used Silk and have not had the pain I had then. In fact during and after my period I have had at least half the pain I had when using other pads.

    Its maybe cos they are soft?

    I use Natra Care panty liners and tampons if I can face a tampon but I stopped using Always because they are apparently the worst brand for chemicals. I changed to Bodyform which don't have that horrible waxy chemical filled layer on the top. I'm not sure it's made any difference whatsoever which ones I use though!
