I sometimes feel guilt but push […] Read more »

Cause of Vulvar Pain

Sorry, forgot to add. I think that many of us are suffering from too much yeast in the body. A most likely cause of vulvar pain. Especially since most of us attest to antibiotics causing our trouble. If you have an infection, before using antibiotics, you may first want to try douching with betadine and water. It is available in the drug store.Also, our partners may be reinfecting us with yeast in the semen if one is particularly vulnerable to […] Read more »

Citrate Supplements

To the person who wrote about cystitis, It seems that many women who have vulvodynia also have some symptoms of cystitis. One possible link is that both the bladder and the vulva developed from the same tissues in the fetus. My bladder burns occasionally. It all started after I took Flagyl (a powerful antibiotic) several months ago, and I think this medicine damaged my bladder. I got severe bladder burning. Over the months it has gotten better, but still now, […] Read more »
