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

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

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 …

He said this is …

As of now I am …

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 …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

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. :]
