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 …

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 …

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.
