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 …

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

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 …

Quick question - peeing

Post  penfebruary on Sun May 06, 2012 5:29 pm

Does anyone else find, I think its pretty common, that staying very hydrated helps with pain and inflammation? I do and if so, does this mean that the pain is viral? With UTIs etc I know its important to stay hydrated so would this indicate some form of subclinical infection? I've tested negative for all these types of problems but don't really believe a word the doctor says any more. Thanks

Re quick question peeing

Post  Sunflower82 on Sun May 06, 2012 6:38 pm

Hi,
Yeah I find the more I drink the better I feel, I'm not sure why I suffer from the burning pain after I wee, on days where I run around like a headless chicken at work and I don't drink enough I get a stabbing pain in my tummy and down below. I am really careful to just drink water and only have the odd cup of coffee and drink decaf tea, once went through a phase of liking chocolate soya milk, vey bad burned even more when I went. Also milk chocolate makes it worse ! I'm not sure that will be the same for everyone but it is for me.

Hi, I also have this trouble, and I never really get thirsty so I kinda forget to drink enough most days :/. I think that its something to do with the urine building up inside being too..concentrated/strong (if they're the right words to use!) and then it stays there til theres enough to make you need to pee, which must irritate the area even more.. especially if you don't go as soon as you need to pee, which obviously is sometimes hard if you're not near a toilet or busy or whatever. I also think that it may be linked with cystitis, as the pee being a really high temp must make the vulvodynia burning worse. Sorry if this message doesn't really make sense, I'm not too good at explaining what I mean!! But just wanted to say I know what you mean and that's my very unscientific theory as to why ha ha!! I always think right I'm gonna drink 7-8 glasses of water tomorrow and I never manage it, I pretty much only drink water, but like 2 glasses :/ not good at all considering how bad my pain is I really don't help myself do I!!
