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 cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

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 …

Hi girls... I live in Australia.
I am currently undergoing a new treatment for vulvodynia. Just wondering if anyone else here has tried it. It's Endep in the form of cream to apply directly on the area. I dont know if anyone else has tried this but so far evidently it has had a 50% success rate.
Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

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 …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

My name is Eliza Barach and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia in October of 2017. I'm also PhD student at the State University of New York at Albany. I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

New and desperate for advice

Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

My vulvadynia pain started at 17. I am 22 now. :'/

My vulvadynia pain started at 17. I am 22 now. :'/

Post  Mandadity on Tue Jul 24, 2012 8:13 am

I am very young and used to be very confident and my self worth was pretty normal for a 17 yr old. The onset to it was ~3 months(maybe less) after I had sex THE VERY FIRST TIME of my life. Being as both me and the guy were virgins I didnt expect a disease but I got tested anyways several times by multiple doctors and over and over again it was negative for STDS.

Fast forward to the now:

I really really need as much support as possible..I have a 1 year old and a bf I been with for 4 years, but now I need to get a job to see more money come into the house(living with another family) and I just have no idea how im going to do this...my pain has been acting up, I might get a call for an interview tomorrow and I just dunno what to do. My boyfriend isnt exactly the comforting kind at all and really could have no idea what im going through...I cant just "work through it" or "take a pill for it"(like ibu, acetaminophen, stuff like that). My 1yr old is the only one with medical insurance and im in the process of SSI so I can live but I just have no idea what to think really.

A thought I have stuck in my mind is that my mom had a yeast infection while giving birth to me and i've ALWAYS had yeast infections even since potty training(idk about diapers). So did my mom make me pron to this? Will my daughter be the same? How do I prevent her from getting this?

I have so many questions and I feel my life is so worthless, it happened so young, I didnt get to "live" only reason sex even happens is because SOMEHOW I have a high sex drive. So im 22, never like to go out, kinda bad people skills because, well idk anymore(I wasnt always like this), I have a freaking psyco, irritable grandma like attitude all the time...I used to be bubby and fun and like the outdoors. Now I feel like my daughter is suffering cuz I am having one hell of a time dealing with this pain and all the other big stressors in my life...

Someone PLEASE help....I need anything... :'/

You aren't alone

Post  Rainy Day on Tue Jul 24, 2012 4:48 pm

I have been dealing with this for about 5 months! It totally sux. I have a 2 yr at home, work 4 days a week, and farm on the side with my husband. And, my hubby isn't the most supportive either. He thinks I should still be happy go lucky like normal. Ummmm....NO!

are you just having a flare, or is it always there?

I almost got mine to go away at first by diet and by acidipholous tablets. Then, I cheated big time by eating 1/2 my son's birthday cake...and this beast came back with a vengence. But, doctors say its not yeast.

Yaay, support. :]

Post  Mandadity on Tue Jul 24, 2012 7:46 pm

Well from 17 to a few months pregnant I had it NON-STOP with the worst pain ever a 10/10 Pain, Sex or not it was ALWAYS there. While pregnant and until my daughter was 6 months old, I had almost no pain, the worst it EVER got was a 2/10 pain and it was a very short time period. Since shes 1 now, the last 6 months have been getting worse. Just last night was a 7/10 pain and I was sitting on a heating pad and it wouldnt go away..I was burning my thighs off more then having the pain go away.

I, about half the time, have a yeast infection or bacterial infection on top of vulvadynia pain. The way I tell the difference is I only itch during yi or bi, never vulva pain.

I knew I wasnt alone but I am just praying it'll go away(Not religious either). I just dont know what to do and I dont know if im the only one out there like this but when I have 10/10 pain, I cant think, im gaining weight since 17, I think just because im bored and im eating everything. Cant afford to get insurance or get the weight down. So i think very little of myself.

Oh and what I meant about first sentence is that my pain isnt always there now/yet again but used to be non stop.

I really appreciate the support/reply. :]
