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 …

Newly diagnosed

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

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 …

Recently diagnosed :(

Post  d_self23 on Mon Aug 27, 2012 9:34 pm

Hello everyone,

I was diagnosed with Vulvodynia 4 weeks ago. I am in a relationship of 5 years and have never been able to have sex without being in pain. For a while I put up with it but this past year I decided enough is enough and went to a clinic. My main symptom is itchiness and painful sex - it drives me crazy. After many doctors telling me I had thrush and it never going away I seeked more advice from a sexual health clinic. Since the beginning of the year I have been going back and forth to this clinic trying out different steroid creams and treatments until the lady referred me to the hospital to see another specialist.

I saw them 4 weeks ago and was diagnosed with Vulvodynia. I was devastated, still am. They specialist told me to try and remain positive and build up my confidence using dilators. I have been working through the different sizes trying to get comfortable with the pain. I am finding it really hard.

My boyfriend is really understanding and I am extremely grateful for his support. We haven't have sex in a while and to be honest I prefer it this way because I don't have to go through the pain. It really upsets me because I wish I wasn't like this, I just want to be normal and to have a normal sex life..

Does any one else suffer from regular itching? It's really getting me down and I am struggling to find a cream/treatment to calm it down. I have changed my washing powder, I have changed all my soaps, I don't wear tight clothing - I have done everything the doctors have told me to and I am still itchy and uncomfortable. Has any one got any advice/suggestions on this?

Thanks for listening Smile

hi there! i'm sorry about everything youve been going through:(. i also am kind of new to all this when last summer i randomly became very itchy and irritated down there. I have been seeing a specialist and she noticed i had inflamed skin so i've been on steriod cream for about a year now...she said my nerve endings became sensitive to the inflammation so now i've been trying different medications to treat the nerve endings but nothing works so far im still itchy Sad


Has your doctor suggested lidocaine? it's a numbing cream it really helps so much with the itching. I only use it once a day and i barely get bothered by my irritation/itching! I thought i was the only one with itching/irritation.
