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 …

Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:44 pm by JGD13

Hi all i am new here.

He said this is …

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 …

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Lyrica gave me my life back

Post  BpCookie on Fri Apr 20, 2012 3:57 pm

Hi ladies, Ive had LSC for over a year and it had complete control over my life. I couldnt go swimming because I couldnt wear a swimming suit, couldnt go out to dinner because it hurt to sit, couldnt go to a movie theater, couldnt attend many parties, was restricted to when I could have guests come over, couldnt have sex with out pain.....etc. I was so depressed and at times I had wished that I were dead. I went to my Gyno's office and saw a NP and she prescribed me Lyrica. I kinda rolled my eyes and thought "Oh great, another useless med. that will cost me too much money". After I took the med. my pain was gone, I couldnt believe it. OMG, I was so happy, I wanted to run around the house doing the Snoopy dance. lol. Ive been taking Lyrica for a little over a week now and sometimes it takes away the pain completely and sometimes it reduces the pain to a level that I can handle. The only draw backs are that it makes me feel really druggy, I have a hard time concentrating and I cant drive. I really dont like the druggy feeling but I will take that over pain any day. If you havent tried Lyrica then by all means, give it a try. I want very single woman who has vulva pain to be able to have a life with out pain. I wish you all luck. hugs

Hi BpCookie,

So glad that the Lyrica helped you. What dose are you on? I used to take it daily- 150 mg twice a day was the prescribed dose, but I ended up taking just 150 at bedtime. Definitely helped with pain, and it made me feel drugged also. But thought it was quite a pleasant feeling actually! Was scared to take it during the day b/c of the loopy feeling. Now I take it "as needed", and it works. I only take it when I have a flare up. I was happy too when I found this med. The other meds I had tried had intolerable side effects and/or did not work. Hope you continue to do well. You may want to try just taking a dose at bedtime and see if that helps with the druggy feeling. Smile

Hi ya, I take 150 mgs twice a day, just like you did. Im going to try 100 mgs in the day and 150 mgs at night to see if that helps with the pain but also with the druggy feeling. Im so glad that Lyrica has helped you also. Its amazing what one little pill can do and to think that I went through pain for a year and all somebody had to do was to prescribe me that drug. gggggrrrrr Makes me want to slap some Dr.s lol.

Anyways, take care of yourself and once again, Im ssssoooo glad you have found something that helps your pain. Its wonderful to have your life back isnt it?! hugs

Yes I'm pleased with Lyrica, been on it for nearly two years. I had a bad flare up about a year ago and it was put up to 400mg from 300 a day. The pain has reduced a lot and flare ups are milder and less frequent. The druggy feeling goes away after a few weeks.

I see ppl talking about flare ups quite a bit. I have Lichen Simplex Chronicus and my burning is a 24 hour thing. Can you explain what you mean when you say flare up? Do you still have daily pain even when you arent having a flare up?

Glad Lyrica help you as well. Have a nice day. hugs

Luckily I don't always have daily pain now but when I talk about a flare up it means a bout of extra bad pain which is more severe than daily pain. They tend to come and go and you don't always know what the trigger was or if its just a random cycle v goes through.

Hi there sorry if this is a stupid question but what type of drug is Lyrica? I'm currently on amitryptaline and it seems to be losing its effectiveness. This month is my one year anniversary of having vulvodynia so I'm pretty down in the dumps.
BPCookie I'm so glad that you're doing so much better - I've read several of your posts before and it's lovely to hear that you're getting your life back, you deserve it! Smile

Hello penfebruary, Lyrica is an anticonvulsant drug used for neuropathic pain. I tried Amitryptaline but it didnt work for me. I do used the Amitryptaline ointment twice a day. It numbs the area. I suggest giving that a try as well.

Im so very sorry that your having such a rough time. I feel your pain and have been through it myself. Over one year of constant burning pain with out much relief. I got so depressed and was mad at the world. There were time that I just wanted to die because I had lost hope in ever getting any relief. Now since Im taking Lynesta, Im back to being my old self again. Im able to watch movies with out constantly thinking about the pain, able to go to restaurants and sit with out being uncomfortable, I can have sex again (wwwooootttt) I can actually go places and do things that I couldnt do before. I still have some days where Im in pain but thats ok, as long as most days are good.

If you decide to try Lyrica, I hope it works for you. Everyone deserves to be pain free!!!!!!

Hugs to you
