MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

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 …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

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 …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

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 …

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Hello everyone my name is Shaila I have been suffering from vulvar vestibulitis vulvodynia since 2005 and was diagnosed in 2009. I saw more than 20 doctors always telling me I didnt have anything just a bad case of yeast took antibiotics anti fungal infection and nothing. I traveled to Houston tx to where I was diagnosed. I then began having marcaine injections (nerve block and that helped me more than anything. What is happening now is that I am starting to get discharge again. The one that has never gone away completly. Its very gross it burns badly and my vagina is burning 24.7. I dont know what to do. Any advice does anyone suffer from this burning discharge also and no infections.

Hi Shaila - so sorry you are suffering and hope you find some support and solace here.

I had burning discharge (with no infection) when my pain was at its worst and I found smearing Vaseline petroleum jelly (the pure stuff) around the vestibule and vagina entrance (which was where I felt the pain) helped a lot as it acted as a barrier. It's about the only thing I can tolerate down there. I also use it when I have my period and am wearing a sanitary pad as it helps prevent irritation then too. (If your burning is more right inside your vagina then Vaseline may not be suitable - I haven't tried it right inside).

Hi,
You could try a lube called yes, it's very natural and can be used as a moisturiser and it's safe to use internally. There is an oil based one and a water based one, I often use it and it can help with the burning sensation.

Hope that's helps
