  • vFIT devices

    Would appreciate any first hand info from women who have purchased this device. I find the website extremely vague, even to what it "improves". Is this for pelvic floor problems, AV, UTIs? It sounds like a $400 heated vibrator to me.  According to their website it's harder to see …

  • Does anyone go to pain management because of AV?

    I'm newly diagnosed, with a vagina so narrow that even a half speculum wouldn't fit. I assume sex would be excruciating, but since I have no partner, no worries there. The labial/vulvar pain is what is the worst, especially since it seems to flare periodically. After a brutal endo biopsy, …

  • Is it Really VA?

    I sometimes wonder if the burning I'm experiencing is truly from VA.  My first gynecologist and dermatologist feels I am experiencing irritation.  The second gynecologist said it could be either VA or vulvodynia.  She said if the hydrocortisone works, it is probably vulvodynia. …

  • Osphena

    Has anyone tried Osphena?  My GYN recommended it to help with the atrophy.  It is a hormone that only helps the vaginal tissue.  It does not affect breast tissue.  I am willing to try it to get relief from the vulva and vaginal burning.  Thanks.
