I have been suffering with my issues for almost 3 years. I am 35. It seemed to show up after my tubal. I always went to the same gynecologist and trusted him. Since the pain started he thought it was yeast and treated it. Checked for other infections and they were all negative. That didn't make it stop. I went back again he then said atrophic vaginitis. Estrogen cream given topically at night. It kinda helped but I was still hurting. He would always say call if it gets really bad but you will do this forever and the pain probably won't ever go away.
Over the past 3 years I have been at my lowest with this pain. I am doing what I need to get thru the day with the least amount of pain. I never told anyone but my husband and my mother. I have children that need me and I try my best but it's hard sometimes.
my symptoms are pain pretty much constant, pain when sitting, pain with intercourse. No itching. I have finally decided it was time to seek a second opinion for the new year.
I met my new Dr. I wrote all my visits with my past Dr down, how I felt, and what has been tested and done. He listened. He immediately took Bloodwork. Thyroid good, estrogen ok, LH good and Testosterone low. At my initial exam he found the painful area upon exam and described it as tiny cuts to me. Noted skin changes in that area. After lab results we decided the biopsy was the next course. I am waiting on results now. I am sore...didn't expect it to be so sore but it's in a spot that will move when I move.
He feels it will be something that needs steroids from looking at it. I'm hoping he gets me answers so I can feel better.
No one else in my life knows how bad this affects me. I tough it up and act as normal as possible but I avoid travel and many outtings due to my pain.
I read the posts here and it makes me wonder if LS is possibly it.
