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 …

I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results.

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci


I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

It it or isn't it? Ignored for two years.....

Post  mass_hysteria_x on Wed Jun 27, 2012 9:21 am

Hi new here and I'm not sure if I have this or not but hopefully will be finding out soon and any opinions would be helpful x
It all started two years ago I had one of the worst bladder infections I have ever experienced that lasted for a month of feeling like I really needed to pee! After two courses of antibiotics this finally subsided and then came the ITCH and stinging and burning Mad So I went to a clinic got told i had thrush, tried cream nothing happened, went to my doctors was told I had thrush and some swabs taken came back negative and I was left alone and every time I went to see my doctor I was told it was all in my head. No matter how many times I went all i got was thrush treatment even though it came back negative! I was even in tears with the doctor begging him to help to no avail.
So after a while the cuts started appearing and I couldn't even go to the toilet it hurt that much. Went to the clinic again and guess what I was told? THRUSH! So months went by and i was in pain and itching and burning and sore almost constantly. No
Anyway I got a new partner and went to the clinic to be tested at this point I had one of my little cuts which was apparently thrush so while there she swabbed it. Few weeks later I got a letter saying i had herpes type 2. pale (This was 4 months ago) It was scary but I thought hey maybe this was the cause of all my problems and I can finally get it sorted and move on!! So I went to the clinic were they very reluctantly gave me medication. Honestly they were just going to leave me! I had to beg them for medication! They gave me four months worth and said the itching burning and sores would stop. So I'm near the end of my meds now and the only thing that has changed is that I no longer get sores. Which is good I suppose but still I sting daily and burning.
I have changed doctors now two years later and she actually listened to me and gave me some medication (tricyclic antidepressants) to try and said to come back in a months time and I can see a gynecologist.
I hope I am getting to the bottom of this! I don't get dressed most days as wearing anything that goes in-between my legs sets the pain off badly I already suffered from severe depression which has become 100x worse and I have even felt suicidal. I want constant pain gone! I have only had very few days pain free in two years and I am only 21 and just want to live my life! Even daily activities are hard walking can trigger it such as walking or moving in a certain way. Sometimes I just sit here and the pangs of pain come. Some days I am scared to move. It is always in the same place near the opening on the outter labia sometimes but very rarely can be on the inner labia. Anyway hopefuly i should have my diagnosis soon. About to ring for an appointment now wish me luck girls I need some help! Does this sound like vulvodynia to you?
Also on a side note I notice much more irritation when I have pubic hair and tend to keep it hair free through waxing (shaving is not an option was done once and the pain and irritation is caused was out of this world!) anyone else have this?

First I'm no expert.
Second god that sounds so similar to my story.
I was diagnosed with genital warts and had 'them' (the lesions) burnt off then got told I didn't have it at all. Ask your GP to do a blood test to double check you actually have this problem. (if you do, it could just be a coincidence too)

my personal experience is after having pretty much the symptoms you described and more for 5 and a half years a dermatologist who is an expert in this field in australia told me this...

the last few vertebra in your spine control all the nerve endings in your pelvis region. If you have bad posture (from slouching at your desk or caused by big boobs) and/or are overweight the vertebra at the bottom of your spine can go out of alignment and/or become compressed.This causes the nerve endings to send out 'pain' messages. This is called pain referral. A lot like when someone is told the RSI in their wrist is caused by their bad back/posture when they sit!!

The cure is to loose weight (A MUST if you are big) see a physio (with a specialization in pilates) to get your posture fixed and do physio guided pilates.

I only JUST found this out but I'm very hopeful it will work and start treatment next week! My doctor told me she has helped a lot of women with this problem successfully and she said I will be pain free within a year!

There are a lot of causes of vulvadynia and this may not be your answer but I am telling everyone I find with similar symptoms to mine as in my 5 years of research I NEVER heard this treatment before! If you want to stay in touch to see how I go let me know! Smile and good luck!
