Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

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 …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

newbie need advice please

Post  julieannboo on Mon Aug 13, 2012 9:51 am

hello,

i was wondering if anyone can help me.

Back in June i had thrush - so i used two pessaries which stung like hell. The thrush cleared up.

About a week later i was due for my period and i remember wiping myself hard about a few times to see if i had started yet. This was about 6 weeks ago.

That made it sting. It has been pretty much stinging ever since and just generally uncomfortable.

i went to the docs they had a look and thought it might have been a cyst then turned to a boil and gave me antibiotics.

That didnt work.

I went back and i asked for a swab to be taken - they said they cant see any infection but did it anyway. I am waiting for the results to see if their is an infection.

The doc also gave me some steriod cream - which i started using yesterday.

I suffer from massive anxiety and depression - i am currently weaning off of anti depressants - so all i am doing is focusing on the pain down there at the moment and it is making me miserable.

is there any advice or tips you can give me please.

i am desperate.

thank you x

Hello Julie, You poor sweetie. I think you should go to a Gyno. Reg. Dr.s really dont have much of a clue when it comes to vagina's. They used to tell me "Everything looks fine." But I was thinking "then why in the Hell does it hurt so much". A Gyno can diagnose the problem much better. You could have a number of things going on. Bacterial inf., strep, fissure, you could have irritated it by wiping hard, etc. It could be anything. Try not to worry too much until you get a diagnosis.

For the time being buy some oatmeal bath stuff, run some cool water in the tub and sit in it for 15 mins. You can do that twice a day. You can buy it at CVS or Walgreens. Also try using an ice pack. You can sit on it, but only use it for a few minutes. You can use some A and D ointment on the vulva area only, dont put it inside the vagina. If possible, dont wear underwear and wear skirts instead of pants.

I hope that helps. Good luck to you. hugs

Im not familiar with Replens. Im 47 yrs old and I have dryness on the outside as well as the inside. For the inside I just use K-Jelly or Astro Lube or any other kind of intercourse lube. I pour some into a small plunger (same thing you use when you use the cream YI med) and put it in that way. For the outside I use a bit of A and D ointment.

I noticed that you said you suffer from anxiety and Depression. I used to suffer from depression too. Im Bipolar and my meds have kept me pretty stable. Are you taking anything for the anxiety? Anxiety feels just horrible, I suffer from that as well. I take Lorazepam for my anxiety.

Anyways, I hope you feel better soon. Take care. hugs

yes i have been on paxil 20mg for almost 13 years.

i started withdrawing off the drug 12 months ago. i got down to 5.2mg but felt so low that today i went back up to 6mg.

maybe this has something to do with my pain down below?

it certainly isnt helping.

thank you - sending love from london x

Hi there - i've replied earlier to your other post about leaving things alone down there. I noticed from your first post here that you suffer from anxiety and depression. I was wondering if your anxiety causes you to tense your body? I'm a bit of a stress -head and often find myself clenching my teeth, tensing my abdomen/pelvis or generally holding tension somewhere in my body without realising i've done it (i've become much more aware of it since my vvd and now make a real effort to be more aware of my body). I think this tension has played a definite role in my vvd.

Vvd pain is awful and understandably could be affecting your depression. If upping your dosage a little helps you get through this then so be it. Once your pain is less (i'm sure you will find something on this forum that will help you) you can get back on track with your withdrawal plan.
