Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

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 …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

It isn't Vulvodynia

Post  It Hurts on Thu May 31, 2012 7:13 pm

I saw a specialist, Dr. McClure, a few weeks ago. He was very interested in the degree of arthritis I have (very visible in my joints in my feet). At times I really find it hard to walk, and now I can't lift my right arm above my shoulder level - the arthritis in my shoulder has caused rotator cuff disease and frozen shoulder. All that aside, this was a clue before Dr McClure even did a physical exam. Within one minute he said, "you realize you got a false negative on lichen sclerosus because that is exactly what you have". It had been suspected I had lichen sclerosus (another auto-immune disorder) but I had a biopsy done and it came back negative. That is why my OBGYN, on doing the "Q-Tip" testing said it must be Vulvodynia. Dr. McClure said that lichen sclerosus is fairly uncommon but more common in arthritic women over 40, perimenopausal and menopausal women. I waited until I was 39 to have my first (and only) child and I can't even lift her into a carseat anymore (I feel like such an old mother!). So I am in my early 40's and probably getting close to being perimenopausal although I thought it might be a bit further away (I am showing symptoms like lots of leg and foot cramps etc). Dr McClure said that in order to get enough tissue sample to confirm lichen sclerosus you really need to be in the OR, which I may get scheduled to do just to be absolutely sure, although Dr. McClure said he is positive about this, it is something he can see. So for all you arthritic women who have Vulvodynia, you may actually have lichen sclerosus. I looked at lichen sclerosus and thought, "maybe I have that" and when I looked at the symptoms of Vulvodynia, I thought that was indeed what I had - they symptoms matched better than the lichen sclerosus symptoms. So now I am on a steroid cream that has not made intercourse any easier. I see Dr. McClure again in July to look at next steps. I guess a next step for me is to find a lichen sclerosus support forum!
