Hi - I see there was a question here about applying vitamin e to the vulva. My question is as follows -I was diagnosed with vulvodynia but what really bothers me is the clit.Nothing seems to have worked well for me Not even the anti depressant ointment they prescribed. I got fed up and took a good look myself and lifted "the hood" from over my clitoris and it was all white with crap - perhaps it's left overs of ointments and soap or whatever. However uncomfortable it was i tried to clean it with a qtip the best I could _ and i have to say there was alot of sense of relief immediately after it. Sex was totally different! Almost like before..But now the "under the hood" is somewhat burning. The anti depressant oitment doesnt help in reducing it and i read somewhere that someone used vitamin e on it, that it stung rela bad but after that it was gone for ever.I understand that that I can use vitamin e - i just want to make sure that the seriously sensitive soft tissue that seems terribly irritated under the hood - is still ok as well - or perhaps it's considered an inner tissue that nothing is supposed to touch it.Than you so much!However today - it burns

Last during sex with my boyfriend the penatrarion hurt more

Last during sex with my boyfriend the penatrarion hurt more than normal. And after when I was cleaning up I noticed a dark gory substance when I wiped my vagina. Is this something I should be concerned with? It was this only one time I noticed it happening for the rest of the night and day I was okay.

I thought I had a yeast infection right before my period

I thought I had a yeast infection right before my period after my husband and I had intercourse. I had to go out of town for a few days and then I felt like I had a UTI. I couldn't get an appointment with my gynecologist because I was switching to a new one that doesn't have an appointment for another 20 days. I went to urgent care and they tested me for UTI and it was positive and I took a seven day Cipro antibiotic&a yeast infection pill-but it did not help now I'm still having pain in my vagina and it feels like there's something there- I still feel a little stinging after I urinate-I get sharp pains and when I looked and it looks like there's something there, small inflamed in my vagina... I've also had some spotting in between periods- i'm now having some nausea and continued pain in the vagina- I haven't had intercourse and three weeks I can't because it's too painful - what could this be and can I go to the emergency room for it ?

Hi. My vulva has been burning for 2 months. Some days are

Hi. My vulva has been burning for 2 months. Some days are better, some worse. Pain moves around - even to anus. PCP ran tests and cultures. All negative except for herpes 1 and 2. 1 was old. 2 is new but I had no lesions. And pcp gave me antiviral meds for 7 days that didn't help. Over the counter yeast meds for 3 days didn't help. Pcp is sending me to a dermatologist. I found one that specializes in vulva. In the meantime I am using 1%hydrocortizone cream. For a week I felt better and today it flared up a lot. Should I do all the labs again? Iately my low belly area sort of tickles and low back aches at times. Could this be weird uti? It seems to get worse with stress. It started during sex while using a new diaphgram and condom. Since then I eliminated spermicide and diaphgeam. I also took morning after pill twice in the last three months. Could this be hormones? I'm under huge amount of stress. Should I get my hormones checked? Take antibiotics just to see? I'm desperate.
