  • Tried Sex

    Well, my husband and I tried having sex last night for the first time in almost 5 months. It only lasted about 5 seconds, because the pain was just too bad. Honestly, I haven't even been in the mood, but I thought we could at least try. My Vulvodynia was already bothering me and after trying sex it just got worse. I just don't know what to think anymore. I can't take the pain from penetration and I just am not ever in the mood, maybe that's from the Paxil Cr. I wish I could just be normal again!

    History of IC, Vulvodynia, Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, Polycystic Ovaries, and Cyst's on my Spine.
    Update as of 6/27/07- Endo, Adenomyosis & Polycystic Ovaries are gone because I had a Hysterectomy in May of 2005! Still battling IC and what was thought to be Vulvodynia, now thought to be PNE.
    Meds: Paxil 40 for IC, Clonazepam 1 for Restless Leg Syndrome, Seroquel 100 for Bipolar, and pain pills as needed.

    I'm so sorry Hillary! I know how upsetting that is -- I had the same problems last year between the IC and Vulvar Vestibulitis. I was never in the mood but when I did have sex, I ended up in pain for days after that. Not fun at all.

    What treatments are you on for the Vulvodynia?

      *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
      *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
      *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
      *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

        I am on Neurontin for my VV, but it isn't helping and is making me so bloated, so I am stopping it today. So, I won't be on anything for my VV. Thanks for your concern!
