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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

New Vulvodynia Support Group in Dallas area

Post  Debbie627 on Mon Jul 30, 2012 8:59 pm

When I was officially diagnosed with vulvodynia 2 years ago, I had no one to talk to except my doctor. I tried to discuss and find answers through the various message boards, but found them to be too slow and in some cases outdated. I have 30 years in the computer industry and have pretty good analytical skills, so I set out on a journey to determine the root cause of my condition. I succeeded! Now I feel compelled to work with other women who have this condition to offer some hope, help and comfort.

As such I am starting up a new support group here in the Dallas area for women to actually meet face to face in a nurturing environment to discuss this condition. I believe through an open exchange of ideas and education, we all have the power to find the answers. We know the doctors don't have the answers...it's up to us.

If you live in the area and are interested in participating, please let me know.

Debbie

Seeking help in Dallas Area

Post  rl2091 on Thu Jan 10, 2013 5:25 pm

Debbie,

I also live in the Dallas area (Lucas/Allen), to be exact. I have also worked in IT for almost 30 years. I've been struggling with vulvodynia for almost 2 years. My ob/gyn struggled with it and finally sent me to a physiologist, telling me that we have to fix what's 'up hear' (pointing to my head) before we can fix what's going on down there. I then went to a doctor at UTSouthwestern, which only really sent me to physical thearpy. I've now have gone to a 3rd doctor, which did order blood tests (after my urging) that showed my free testosterone is below normal and my SHBG is way high. However, this doctor knows that is not good, but has no idea what to prescribe. I would like to know how you got help and what doctor you visited.

I'm desperate!!!!!!!!!
Roseann

We have also seen several doctors.  (Locally & out of state)  Last week saw a new dr.  I have some hope again.  She seemed to have a few more tools in her tool chest.  If nothing else works, we may fly to New York for a consult.  Would be interested in visiting with others !
We live in the North Dallas area. I am close to Allen, McKinney, Frisco and Plano.

Still here for you

Post  Debbie627 on Wed Feb 08, 2017 5:22 am

I have to apologize to all of you. After posting my message about starting a support group in the Dallas area, I stopped looking at this board when I didn't receive any immediate responses. Please know I am still here for you and wanting to do this. Contact me directly at ddc627@gmail.com. We can meet and share experiences. I can share with you what I did and hopefully help you as well.
