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

Hello!

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 …

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 …

Thank you I will try to put a link on to some of the research into Gabapentin Gel. Thanks.

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 …

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Nearly gone it still 3/10 i use Neurontin (Gabapentin) i take that ten times a day like my doctor told me i also use Epaderm cream, i also been giving numming cream on Monday with the pilll my doctor though it would be best to put it on it as i am getting better she gave my anti thrust pill as i am on antibiotics to clear up whatever is wrong with my bladder lol, when she looked at me it didnt really hurt it felt weird when she first had a look as i dont like being touch down there but i relex and realised the pain i had when she first opened me up is gone, then she did a q tip test which she looked at both sides the right was about 2/10 but it didnt really hurt like it did a couple months ago and the left side which has always been a pain was 3/10 and looked somewhere else and that didnt hurt, it felt weird but amazing knowing it didnt hurt. she said the tabs was helping me and she was really impressed she told me to go walking but she seem impressed with being trying to lose weight so i think weight may have a factor on the conditional, i am seeing her novemeber so i am hoping it will be either a 2 or 1/10. (Last year i couldnt even let it go in as the pain felt like someone was killing me) i did have sex on my hoilday around three to four time i think only once it hurt, the pain for the other time went which i was so surprised at. sorry it so long i am super excited Very Happy

I am ssssoooo very happy for you. I tried to take Gabapentin but it caused severe dry mouth and I didnt notice any pain relief. I was recently put on Lyrica and for about a month and a half my pain was almost gone. But of course it was too good to be true because now Im back to constant pain. ggggggrrrr I want to find that magic med. like you have found.

btw, you said your taking Gaba. 10 times a day? What strength of pill are you taking? I was only taking it once a day.
