I've been with my boyfriend for 2.5 years and before this August I had maybe 2 or 3 flare ups that only last maybe a week so I thought it was dry down there or something. I got diagnosed in August because I was having constant …

I am questioning myself as far as if I may have vulvodynia, and maybe you guys can help me. I know you're not doctors, and therefore can'T give me a diagnosis but you might be able to help regardless.
A few weeks ago, I started having burning sensations after sex. I thought at first it was …

I wanted to see if anyone has ever had experience with vagional pain caused by scented toilet paper or any scented products that affected your area.
I have been experiencing the new pain that I had thought was a yeast infection, but ended up not being one. My doctor had asked me if I had switched toilet papers or anything like that. At the time I said no, because I hadn't... at home …

I am new to this and I wanted to know if anyone can tell me what to except over the next few weeks.
I had surgery on 9/11 and it has been about six weeks since my surgery. I had a post-op appointment on 10/7( 4-week mark).
He stated that I was healing very well! And that I should not stress every little pain or sensation at that point because it is too early to determine anything. …

I have found co-incidentally that during my period my pain eases off, and during my period I take eve primrose oil?! Hmmm maybe I shouldn't stop taking it when my period ends?
I had never considered getting the oil out of the pills and rubbing it on topically though. Can you really do that? And if so, how come nobody sells the oil in topical form? Or do they?
I would love to hear how anyone else gets on with this method if you try it.

Ive always had a problem with painful sex, and a constant burning vag, but recently I was diagnosed with something far more horrible. Interstitial Cystitus.
Painful Bladder syndrome. Many women with Vulvodynia, many times have interstitial cystitus aswell, and I do frequent UTI's and I control them with a daily probiotic, but this particular bladder infection would not go away. Guys, this condition has literally ruined lives. Women hav e to go on disability for it. Imagine a voracious, raging UTI that never goes away. ever. and there is no cure. Its one thing not to be able to have sex, or sit for too long, or wear anything tight. But to be aware of constant, swollen, urethral frequency and burning, having to go to the bathroom every five minutes, cant sleep thru the night, the pain is compared to Cancer. People have to go on methadone, and antidepressants over it. Anywho, After I wept and begged on my knees for God to cure me, and help me, and even called a prayer line (LOL!!) and cried on my moms shoulder, (she prayed with me for a cure also) I made an appointment with a Urologist in Cleveland, Ohio at the Cleveland clinic. The best in the country. I got diagnosed with Ureaplasma, and Im currently on a strong 30 day course of antibiotics, (augmentin, zithromax, doxicycline) then I will be on long term antibiotics for the duration, until I test negative, which could take over a year.
Many people dont know too much about Ureaplasma, so please, please google it, and try to find a doctor that will hear you ,and test you. There are links to this with V too.
The test is expensive, and many doctors havnt even heard of it, so you have to shop around. because Ureaplasma is linked to IC, (urethritis) it is also linked to infertilty, miscarriage, and premature birth. Maybe shop around for fertility doctors, say your trying to get pregnant, and your concerned about Ureaplasma. Its worth it guys, I feel 100% better now that I am taking the proper treatment. This little bacteria is prolly the the one responsible for a lifetime of pain, and ruined relationships.
The oils. I make suppositories with coconut oil, (frozen, in sport bottle ice cube trays) with various essential oils, and Ive been able to have a sex life and sometimes, pain free sex life, since I started this. The thing is. You have to rotate the oils, I learned this. For a couple of years I was just using tea tree (and douches are horrible by the way, please dont put them in douche, been there, done that) after awhile, it didnt work and I didnt know why. The Boric acid suppositories. Worked for awhile, then didnt work at all. Then Myrrh oil. Which is great by the way. Then lavender and rosemary oils. Also awesome. Then Tyme oil, and oregano oil. Awesomness. Also, grapefruit seed extract is great too. Now Im doing Geranium oil, and its the skin of my vag is very soft and supple, non itchy and completely burn free. It feels strong, and healed...Im totally down for sex atm ), but currently single again (..but yea. Start out with a few drops, first few days, then work your way up to where you feel comfortable. I use quite a bit, especially for raging pain or infection, but everyones different.Theyve been working out great for me, but it has been such a long road. Ive read about many women just giving up, but dont please.
Wise women of antiquity have known about essential oils treating women's problems and vaginal infections for many centuries now. I admit, I was scared too and hesitant about putting strange smelly substances up there, but it is so worth it. Some days, I feel almost normal down there. Like when I was young. Also, change of diet, (more fiber, vegetables, green smothies, teas, wheatgrass shots) have made it possible to live a normal life, and be a healthy person again, and maybe a chance at a fulfilling relationship. Also, having constant vaginal infections CAN impact fertility. and I am hoping to get pregnant again. God luck and God Bless. God knows how much I have suffered and I prayed day and night for a cure. To be healed, and cured is the greatest blessing of all, the greatest blessing God can give you. And this is when he makes his presence known. When God heals you, when he has answered your prayer.
