Causes, Symptoms and Treatments of Vulvodynia

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Causes, Symptoms and Treatments of Vulvodynia

Vulvodynia refers to a chronic pain in the vulva, a condition suffered by most women. Triggered generally by an unidentifiable cause, the pain was not considered as a real pain syndrome until of late. The ambiguity of the condition is such that many who do suffer from it fails to realize its complications.

There are primarily two types of Vulvodynia:

  1. Generalized Vulvodynia: This is when the pain is all over the vulva, however different parts may pain at different times. It may be a constant pain or may occur occasionally.
  2. Vulvar vestibulitis syndrome: The pain is in the vestibule area or the entrance of the vagina is known as vulvar vestibulitis syndrome. This kind of pain mostly exhibits a burning sensation and is triggered even by a slight touch. During intercourse the pain manifolds to extreme severity.

Although the cause of Vulvodynia is not known, doctors suspect the following reasons to be the contributing factors:

  1. Nerve injury
  2. Heredity
  3. Yeast infections
  4. Sexual abuse in the past
  5. Muscle Spasm
  6. Hormonal changes

Symptoms

  1. Burning sensations
  2. Aching or soreness
  3. Itching

Treatment

No well versed cure is available for Vulvodynia, although certain self care treatments can bring relief. Among the many, you need to figure out which method suits you best and choose accordingly. To discern the best method, you might have to try various different combinations. At the same time, it is extremely important to educate yourself about Vulvodynia and have a thorough knowledge about what it is all about.It is advisable that you maintain a record of the treatments which according to you suit you the most in order to avoid confusion. Some of the methods are given below:

  1. Avoid products which might act as potential irritants near the vulva.
  2. Do not put much pressure on the vulva. Avoid activities which might exert direct pressure on it.
  3. Whenever it pains, try to soothe the area by soaking it in lukewarm water or applying ice on it.
  4. Use medications like lidocaine to relieve pain.
  5. Certain exercises might also help relax the area.
  6. Biofeedback also helps relax the vaginal muscles and bring some relief.

Get a UPT kit from a medical store and check. The results are quite accurate. If positive and you want to terminate the pregnancy then visit a gynecologist.

If intercourse happens one day before expected period then normally theoretically no chance of pregnancy. Because of ipill at this stage also may post-pond period. Wait for 4-5 days more and then if menstruation does not happen to do urine test.

Morning sickness is quite common in first two, threeonths of pregnancy. Hope you must have gone to a gynaecologist for first checkup where she would examine her and prescribe folic acid and medicine for vommitngs and few blood tests and sonography. Give her sips of water frequently and light food like no fried and rich food. Nothing from outside like samosa golgappa etc. Only home made food please.

It's prudent do get a urine pregnancy test done by yourself at home, although chances of you getting pregnant is bleak as you had taken postpone 72 and got withdrawl bleeding. If pregnancy test is negative, you may have delayed periods this time because of the pill you consumed.

Overcome pain in a conscious process rather than with uncertainty

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Overcome pain in a conscious process rather than with uncertainty
Life can never be 100% perfect and we do pass through emotional and mental setbacks, time to time in the form of failed relationships, loss of jobs, negative health events etc. These events are unavoidable, but sometimes we may get emotionally stuck to such an event to such an extent that we end up losing many things in the process. For example, post-breakup a person who keeps on holding the pain may develop a low level of concentration, low on confidence, become irritable and may lose his/her job or friends who matter to them. So how to overcome pain from failures, rejections and losses in a conscious process and not by uncertainty?

Here are some tips you can use or suggest to your loved ones to overcome failure, loss or rejection and regain their normal living:

1. Make yourself remember your goals in life: you may have faced a break-up or job loss, but there are other priorities in life too like your parent’s happiness, you friend’s happiness, your career and they don’t deserve your ignorance or your ill behaviour.

2. Failure is not the end of the world: Remember failures and losses too help us to grow and understand life in a better way.

3. Try to spend more time with your family and friends. During a relationship, we reduce the time we used to spend with our parents and friends. Post breakups make up for the past loss.

4. Don’t shy away to consult an expert: if you find your sadness getting uncontrollable and it's not stopping, no matter what you try or do, then consult an expert immediately. Counselling always helps you to get back in your life.
