Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

I use coconut oil all over my body as a moisturizer. Its good for my stretch marks and surgical scars. I also use it on my lips when they're chapped, on my hair before bathing when it's dried out, and I plan to try it as a dietary supplement now. Thanks so much! Good luck ladies xo

I asked my doctor he said maybe but sometimes it can cause more problems in the long run. If you use it everyday. I've heard of people using it with success so it's worth it but it can cause worse problems so just.be.very careful Smile

Hello! Newbie here, but just wanted to say that coconut oil has antibacterial properties and antifungal and is great for killing yeast!

Coconut oil and digestion

Post  sweetstarfire on Fri Jul 03, 2015 4:12 pm

I have Cystic Fibrosis too and we get bowel obstructions a lot. It has been suggested in my CF support group to eat coconut oil to help get things moving. For the ladies who have been eating coconut oil to help with the pain ... have you been going to the bathroom more often? I would be afraid that it would act as a laxative too.

Hi all

I see this thread is kind of old so yall may have moved on

I was just diagnosed and am miserable and in pain. I am going through what you all went through in the begining, anger, denial, despair.

Anyway... Did the coconut oil work for others

I just took two tbs

I know that coconut oil kills yeast when used intravaginally
I wonder if it kills yeast systemically when injested


This sucks
