An absolute success story- please read!

Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:57 pm by Persevere1990

Dear All,

I posted on here back in March 2017 having just got a diagnosis of vulvodynia after a few months of relentless and acute pain. I was desperate, I was hurting, I was scared I would never know life without pain there again.

I tried creams, acupuncture, numbing gels, frozen pads, baths with various internet recommended concoctions- convinced myself I had lichen sclerosus, herpes, thrush- …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

BOOKS! NON-VAGINA RELATED!!!

Post  naomi on Mon Jul 26, 2010 1:39 pm

Can anyone suggest some good books (not science fiction) that are a good, interesting read? BUT......(that's a big BUT!)

...ones with minimal references to SEX! With everything that's going on I just want some escapism and I'm fed up with getting into a book, only to read about how many "orgasms Ben had given Kate last night" and how she was "gagging for it".....grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Thanking you in advance

Depends what you like, I'm a thriller fan so I read lots of Harlan Coben and Dean Koontz and stuff like that. Neither of those authors are big on sex scenes!

I like the easy to read, unconfusing (lifes confusing enough!), inspiring, funny, heart warming ones, ones that you finish and go "ahhhhhhhh" Very Happy

I'm going to get my bum down to the library in a bit and have a look. Thanks for the recommendations! I think my dads reading a Dean Koontz one at the mo, might steal that from him after!

I've been reading some easy going ones by Marian Keyes (chick lit) but theres way too much sex sex sex. I end up starting to resent the characters!!!

oh life!

oh ace ta 4 the recommendation!

I ended up getting some books from the library...

dean koontz odd hours

a book on greece (one can dream about holidays!)

marian keyes book -click lit i know but i thought id give her another chance, she is funny! I'll do the usual and try to skim read over the sex stuff!!

The war on pain - it has suggestions on how to deal /get through life with it, so will let you guys know if its any good.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Dummies...I may be bouncing off the walls with positivity but the end of the week!...or maybe not!

So these will keep me busy for a while. I suppose thats one benefit of this condition...if you lose your job like I have and on benefits at least you have time to read Very Happy clouds and silver linings spring to mind there Laughing

I love the Odd Thomas books by Dean Koontz, be warned though they can get a bit sad in places!

Dean Koontz is fantastic! I love his books.

Also I love Magaret Atwood but she is a heavy read.

Sum more books I recommed:

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon - about a boy with asbergers written from his perspective

Anyfing by George Orwell - 1984, Animal Farm, Down and Out in Paris and London

And try sum Dorothy Parker poems for a good bit of love cynicism!

If you like 1984, I would suggest "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley...I loved it 27,000 times more =)

I read a ton so let me know if there are any specific types/genres & I'd love to give suggestions!

I've just read a fantastic thriller called The Neighbour by Lisa Gardner, I was so impressed I've ordered another of her books! By the way very little in the way of sex scenes!

I don't have the concentration for reading anymore even magazines are a challenge BUT wanted to share my Dad's latest discovery.

OK to my great shame he is devouring Danielle Steele books, he's printed a list from the internet and is marking them off as he goes. Surviving a cancer scare, subsequent op and chemotherapy has clearly done something to his brain. We didn't know he could read until now. It's turned into our private shame. My niece gave him a boxed set of movies for his birthday. He couldn't be more pleased! Crikey!

I did really enjoy The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnolley, it looks like one of those naf romantic loads of BS but is surprisingly good. I did enjoy some of Marian Keyes, Rachel's Holiday was a great laugh and would have made a way better movie than 28 days (with Sandra Bullock) that had similar content.

Oops husband tooting - bless!
