Pelvic & Vaginal Pain Syndromes

painVulva or vaginal pain syndromes (such as VaginismusVestibulodyniaVulvodynia are complex and often poorly understood. They can also be severely painful and debilitating for the sufferer. Sexual activity can be traumatic and even impossible. Tight clothing or bike riding can often flare it up, and sometimes there is a continual burning pain with no relief. Unfortunately, the delicate nature of the area means that the problem is often ignored, with women suffering in silence. Furthermore, the poor understanding of these issues in the medical community means that investigations and treatments are often fruitless, and women feel hopeless.

However – it is NOT all in your head! Recent years have more clearly classified these chronic pain disorders, and particularly the role of pelvic floor dysfunction and hypersensitivity. Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy helps get to the root cause of the problem. You can learn to relax the muscles, desensitize the tissue and manage your painful triggers. You can get a real understanding of the issue, enabling you to work towards a pain free, fully socially and sexually active life again.

Endometriosis and Interstitial cystitis are pain syndromes involving the uterus and bladder respectively. They too are complex problems that don’t have a clear and simple cause or solution. However, they can be related to pelvic floor dysfunction that is missed, masked or misdiagnosed. The proximity of all the pelvic contents means there can be a lot of ‘cross talk’ between nerves. Signals to the brain get confused, and chronic pain can result. This means that if the pelvic floor (which is closely related to all the pelvic organs) is dysfunctional, it can exacerbate pain in the organs themselves. Restoring the pelvic floor normalizes these signals and reduces pain.
Positioning and movement of the organs within the pelvis is also important for them to work happily and pain free. Having your pelvic posture corrected, and easing any tension on the tissues surrounding the organs is also important for relieving pain. Pelvic floor Physiotherapy can be the missing link, offering non-invasive and drug free relief for these pain syndromes.

Pudendal neuralgia is an entrapment of the pudendal nerve. This nerve comes from your buttock and feeds your perineum and external genitalia. It is responsible for sensation in the genitals and contraction of some pelvic floor muscles. When it becomes constricted, severe one sided pain occurs. This is worse when sitting, and is eased by standing or sitting on the toilet seat. Physiotherapy involves relaxing the tight tissues entrapping the nerve, in and around the pelvic floor.

Chronic Pelvic pain is very common in women of all ages. It can manifest in a variety of patterns, often experienced in the SI joints, hips, pubic bone (pubic symphysis dysfunction) and tailbone (coccydynia). Pelvic pain is most likely caused by poor mechanics of your entire pelvis, which needs to work as a unit. The pelvic floor is a vital part of this unit, as it provides support and stability to the whole system. Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy addresses pelvic floor dysfunction, and treats this in combination with the pelvic mechanics to help restore normal movement and become pain free.

How to Overcome Those Painful Vaginitis Symptoms

Vaginitis can be defined as any disorder that causes inflammation or infection of the vaginal area. These infections may be caused by a bacteria, virus, or yeast. Irritations caused by a sensitivity to chemicals can cause vaginitis, also. Some women are sensitive to certain types of soaps, clothing, or creams. You can also get vaginitis from a sexual partner. So now that you know of all the different ways you can get vaginitis, it’s time to learn the symptoms. Read on to discover vaginitis symptoms and how to get rid of them.

The most common vaginitis symptoms are itching and burning in the vaginal area. The itching may be up inside the vagina or the surrounding tissues or a combination of both. This itching can be so intense that it is almost debilitating. You can also experience a burning sensation around the vaginal area. It will burn like crazy when you go to the bathroom because the urine will hit the infected areas and cause intense pain. Anyone who has ever experienced vaginitis will never forget how painful these symptoms can be.

You will also experience discharge that is not normal for you. This discharge can help you determine the cause of your infection in some cases. If the discharge is thick, white and looks like cottage cheese, then you have a yeast infection. If the discharge is thinner, grayish in color, and has a foul odor, then you may have an infection caused by bacteria. You should see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.

Now that you know the symptoms, what are you going to do about them?

The first thing you should do is to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. Since vaginitis can be caused by so many different things, you have got to pinpoint the source before you start treatment. For some women, it is very easy to narrow down the cause of their symptoms. But for other women, it may not be so easy. If you are not sure about the source of your vaginitis, pay a visit to your doctor. He will be able to take some vaginal swabs and test them to discover what is causing the infection.

Once the source of the vaginitis is determined, then you will be able to start treatment. If it is a yeast infection, an over-the-counter cream can usually take care of it. If the vaginitis is caused by a bacteria, you will need a prescription from your doctor to cure it.

It is important to learn how to prevent vaginitis. There are a few simple things you can do that will keep you from getting vaginitis again. You should always keep the vaginal area clean and dry. Don’t douche excessively or use irritating soaps. Never leave tampons or diaphragms in for long periods of time. It is best to stay away from deodorized tampons and pads because the deodorant can cause irritation. When going to the bathroom, always wipe from front to back. This will keep you from introducing bacteria from the bowel into the vagina.

Vaginitis symptoms can be excruciatingly painful. Get treatment as soon as you suspect any type of vaginitis. The sooner you treat, the sooner you can get your life back.

Vaginal Dryness & Healthy Genital Tips – Stop Dry Vagina Pain During Sex

When it comes to looking after the vagina take a leaf out of a mans’ book. The vagina is sacred so treat it as such, MEN DO” why not you?

Dry Vagina

Although dryness is known in lots of cases for causing vaginal itch and burning/stinging around the vaginal opening and in the lower third of the vagina, it is the pain that might occur during sexual intercourse that women find most stressful.

Causes of vaginal dryness may include:

Sex
Diaphragms
Antidepressants
Antibiotics
Chemotherapy
Radiation
Allergens
Douches -Tampons – Condoms

Dryness is a direct result of lower estrogen levels that is a common occurrence during and after menopause. When estrogen levels reduce, vaginal tissue thins becoming less elastic, drier and weaker. Nonetheless, inadequate vaginal lubrication can occur in women at any age. It is also a characteristic sign of vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis) – thinning and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to a reduction in estrogen.

For women who deny their man sex to avoid painful intercourse did you know there are vaginal lubricants that help make sex happen without discomfort (Certain lubricants consist of clear fluid that seeps through the walls of the blood vessels surrounding the vagina).

When a woman is sexually aroused, more blood flows to the pelvic organs producing more fluid. But the hormonal changes of menopause, having a baby and breast-feeding can hamper the process and prevent the action.

A decrease in estrogen levels can be the outcome of:

Menopause
Hysterectomy
Sudden effort – Exertion
Menstruation changes
Pregnancy
Childbirth
Hormonal contraceptives
Endometriosis
Stress, tiredness
Infertility drugs

How can I help prevent my vagina from becoming to dry? Easy, stop using products that is likely to increase dryness or irritate vaginal tissue. Specific soaps, washing powders, douches, scented gels and allergens that contain harsh ingredients you need stay clear of if they contain dodgy ingredients.

Another favoured option is Kegel exercises. They help increase circulation to the pelvic area which in return strengthens vaginal tissue. While lubricants are useful now and again for sex, specially formulated moisturizing creams will better the health of vaginal tissues. Particular formulas containing phytoestrogens are known for their ability to naturally replenish waning estrogen levels

Flaxseeds are high phytoestrogens and known to minimize hot flushes and ease discomfort of sore breasts. Omega-3 fatty acids is good for fighting heart disease, arthritis and balancing hormones and the outcome normally less severe

You cannot beat supplements for helping to fight different conditions. This applies to the case of a dry vagina. Consider B-vitamins and vitamin E. Vitamin A helps keep suppleness. Should you decide to take vitamins consult your doctor.

Another option is Evening Primrose Oil.

Healthy Vagina

Avoid vagina dryness and infections by maintaining a healthy vagina. If you have been fortunate and not had a problem with your bits “YET” then be ready for when you do.

A healthy vagina is moist and produces a reasonable amount of vaginal discharge. Over time discharge due to hormonal cycles and aging can alter vagina behaviours. Typical vaginal fluid would look a clear/white, pasty or of a slippery consistency, and odourless.

The body depends on the hormone estrogen and progesterone to create ample lubricating secretions for the vagina. While going through the perimenopause stage and menopause when hormones are changing, it is common for dryness to happen as less secretion is produced.

Various reasons for dryness

Be wary of soaps advertised as gentle, namely Dove and Ivory because they can dry genital tissue because they are not pH-balanced.

What you eat. Estrogen is needed to help lubricate the vagina. Since estrogen is created from cholesterol, the bodies’ ability to efficiently produce and metabolize estrogen depends strongly on the fat we consume in our diet. But while there is a connection between fat in our diet and estrogen levels, it is essential to consume fats that produce health and hormonal balance instead of those that encourage disease.

Hydration is important to keep mucous membranes moist. Go easy on drinks that contain caffeine and avoid alcohol.

Medicine – Specific drugs, like allergy/cold medications, even some antidepressants tend to dry out mucous membranes including vaginal tissues. Ask your GP about birth control pills as they are noted for causing this problem because the hormones it contains are not natural to the human body.

While most people link dryness to the time of perimenopause/menopause, hormonal imbalance can happen to women who have premature ovarian failure, polycystic ovarian syndrome, anorexia, or pituitary and hypothalamus concerns; and also in those who have lately given birth, breastfeeding, have imbalanced diets and undergone cancer therapy or smoke tobacco products.

Stress has an influential impact on the system, and yet women tend to overlook the signs. By taxing the adrenals chronic stress forces down androgens which interferes with the normal female sexual response cycle. At this point it affects the stages of arousal and lessens natural lubrication.

Natural solutions for vaginal dryness

Sadly, a great deal of women who suffer with vaginal dryness continue to suffer because conventional medicines do not work for them.

Suggestions below are to help, however they may work for some whereas for others useless solutions

Add soy isoflavones to your diet. Whole soy foods are high in isoflavones and lignans and known to help.

Give your body the highest level of nutritional support. The body will always struggle to function properly without essential ingredients. For example, omega-3 essential fatty acids support healthy cell membranes and hormonal balance.

Be vigilant towards your vagina. Check it regularly with a mirror. Keeping track of any changes will help identify if dietary habits is the cause of particular issues.

Swap K-Y Jelly for a quality lubricant which contains methylparaben. Go for natural lubricant like Sylk or paraben and glycerin-free Astroglide.

Natural oil like sweet almond or grape seed after a bath is affective.

Control the condition using vitamin E suppositories. Vitamin E applied locally can help restore thin vaginal tissue.

Thick White Vaginal Discharge and Pain – My Proven Secret to End Vaginal Discharge and Pain!

When I first started to get a thick white vaginal discharge and pain I began my frantic search on what caused these symptoms and what were they a sign of and most importantly I wanted to learn how to get rid of it fast and with minimum cost. I will outline what I learned so you can benefit from it and learn how to treat it successfully.

Here’s what I learned about thick white vaginal discharge and pain:

These symptoms are a sign of yeast infection. A yeast infection is caused by an overgrowth of yeast (Candida). The overgrowth is generally triggered when the body is so weak it cannot defend itself against the infection. If you’ve just come off a recent course of antibiotics, or are on birth control pills, or your diet is high in sugar and low in nutritional value or even if you’re going through a stressful time right now – all these can weaken your immune system and trigger an overgrowth in yeast. Unfortunately a thick white vaginal discharge and pain are not the only symptoms of yeast infection.

The physical symptoms of yeast infection are: a thick and white vaginal discharge which is odourless and looks like cottage cheese, severe itching and pain, redness and irritation of the vagina, a burning feeling when urinating and pain during sexual intercourse.

Besides these symptoms many women also complain with other chronic indicators related to an overgrowth in yeast such as a lack of energy, fatigue, joint aches and unexplained food cravings.

Treatments for thick white vaginal discharge and pain:

I got the most benefit from natural remedies although I’ll cover my experience with traditional medicine as well. When you are in so much pain you are looking for a quick fix. A prescription treatment will get rid of a vaginal yeast infection if this is your first ever infection. If you are unlucky like I was and are prone to regular bouts of yeast infection, what you will notice is that these drugs will stop working in time and the reason why is because they don’t treat the root cause of the infection only the symptoms. A few weeks later after the treatment, the yeast infection will just flare up again.

If you want to put a stop to the symptoms of yeast infection and the vaginal discharge and itchiness then I recommend natural remedies.

I got pain relief using apple cider vinegar douche and I used garlic to treat vaginal discharge. I had regular apple cider vinegar “baths” or douches as they are properly called and used raw garlic as insertions and found it particularly effective.

I introduced natural yogurt into my daily diet and this helped keeping the yeast infections at bay. I learned that natural yogurt is excellent to keep bacterial infections such as yeast infections, athlete’s foot and other bacterial type infections from occurring because of its natural ingredients. I’ve made a few more changes in my diet and reduced my intake of sugary foods (yeast thrives on sugar) and soon enough my symptoms died down, my vaginal discharge and pain stopped and most importantly I improved my overall health as well.

Follow through with a good hygiene routine, focus on reducing your intake of sugary foods and alcohol and use garlic and vinegar remedies and you’ll soon get rid of vaginal discharge and pain!

Vaginal Yeast Infection Pain – 5 Types of Pain

If you need information on vaginal yeast infection pain, you will need to be positively sure you have a yeast infection and not another medical issue causing the pain. Pain from these infections affect your abdominal area, back, head, joints, and muscles. The top 5 ways these infections cause pain are:

  1. Pain during urinating. When the fungus invades the bladder, the outer area becomes inflamed and eventually the bladder infection begins. The swollen bladder strains to release the urine, and it burns the sensitive skin in passing. This pain from infection, called cystitis, is common in women.
  2. Low and high back pain. Sometimes the inflamed vagina is pressing against the back and causes severe pain in the lower back. Also back pain from the infection may be a kidney infection that has spread up from a bladder infection. This pain from the infection is higher up the back just below the shoulder blades.
  3. Painful intercourse. The inflamed vaginal walls make intercourse very difficult and sometimes cause spotting. Vaginal pain may be so severe that some women cannot have sexual intercourse for months. The inflamed vulva and vagina make relaxation and intimacy near impossible. The Candida infection discharge is thick and not conducive to intercourse.
  4. Pain in the abdomen. This is sometimes caused by gas generated by the growing yeast. Eating foods which are low in fiber and high in refined carbohydrates and foods with high yeast or mold content, such as bread and cheese, may cause yeast over-growth. Heartburn is the most common stomach pain.
  5. Yeast infection cause pain throughout the body. Toxins from the Candida over-growth get into the blood stream. The body becomes weak and the mind becomes “spacey”. Some women experience painful migraines and joint pains.

If you have vaginal yeast infection pain, you might be interested in a holistic treatment approach that is cheaper than over the counter creams and can be done at home.

Vaginismus And Vaginitis – Vaginal Pain: What Can Be Done?

Though their names and some symptoms are similar, vaginismus and vaginitis are quite different.

Vaginismus is the name given to the condition that causes the involuntary tightening of muscles around the vagina when being penetrated. This muscular contraction can occur regardless of the object used for penetration, be it the male organ, tampon, finger or personal vibrator.

The muscles can even become so tight with vaginismus that it can preclude the possibility of intercourse.

Apart from the tightening common in vaginismus, there is often also a stinging or burning sensation in the vagina when anything is inserted.

Vaginitis, on the other hand, is the name given to inflammation or infection of the vagina.

There are several different types of vaginitis, ranging from yeast infection, bacterial infection and infection caused by a single cell parasite transmitted during sexual contact and called ‘trichomoniasis’, to non-infectious vaginitis caused by some form of sensitivity or allergic reaction to soaps, fabric softeners, spermicidal products etc.

Symptoms of vaginitis include itching, irritation and abnormal discharge.

Treatment depends on the type of vaginitis. Yeast infections can be cleared with a cream or suppository. Bacterial infections and trichomoniasis are treated with antibiotics, and non-infectious vaginitis is cleared by identifying and eliminating the cause of the sensitivity.

Because each type of vaginitis needs different treatment it is absolutely essential that anyone experiencing symptoms consult with their doctor or medical advisor in order to receive the correct diagnosis and proper treatment. Given the right kind of treatment, vaginitis can usually be cleared quite quickly.

With vaginismus, there are two categories.

The first type is known as ‘primary vaginismus’, a classification applied when a woman has never been able to achieve sexual intercourse. The second is when the woman has been able to have intercourse in the past, but has come to experience difficulty, and this type is called secondary vaginismus.

The severity of symptoms and their consequences vary from person to person. Some women are able to have sexual relations, including sexual intercourse, but only with real difficulty. However, because of the discomfort, the vaginismus can prevent orgasm.

Quite naturally, such discomfort and pain can cause real fear of sexual intercourse or penetration, causing the woman to avoid sex and lose sexual desire.

Each of these symptoms is really beyond the reach of the conscious mind. They are simply involuntary. What has happened is that the subconscious, feeling mind, has been programmed to associate vaginal penetration with pain. It has become a ‘conditioned response’. Consequently, the vaginal muscles instinctively tighten as part of the body’s protective mechanism, and in order to prevent further pain by penetration. This tightening may happen before actual introduction of anything into the vagina – even at the suggestion or thought of penetration.

Needless to say, all of this can take its toll on relationships, even preventing people from having children. Sometimes gynaecological procedures may be so uncomfortable and difficult that an anaesthetic may need to be administered in order to perform an examination.

The causes of vaginismus are varied and the first thing that needs to be done is for the woman to be checked medically. If the cause of the vaginismus is determined to be physical – an injury or infection, for instance – then this can usually be effectively treated with medication.

Very often, though, vaginismus has psychological underpinnings, and when this is the case then the cause often lies in the individual’s personal history.

At some time in the past, the woman may have experienced intense pain or discomfort in the vaginal region, or less commonly, she may have learned of such pain from another person and been influenced by this in a process known as ’emotional contagion’. In this ‘sensitizing event’ the subconscious mind has been ‘programmed’ to link pain with the idea of sexual intercourse or with the thought of inserting anything whatsoever into the vagina.

Sometimes the woman may remember this sensitizing event, but often it may be lost to conscious recall.

Luckily, there is a way in which this programming can be re-written and the effect reversed. The fastest and really effective way to accomplish this is work with the subconscious mind in hypnosis. Using suggestion therapy and reinforcement, the subconscious can be re-trained, so that it no longer automatically associates discomfort and pain with vaginal penetration.

Working with the subconscious mind, modern advanced hypnotherapy really can help restore the natural ability of the body and of the vagina to function as it was designed to do.

If you have been experiencing vaginismus or vaginitis then visit your doctor or medical advisor prior to consulting with the hypnotherapist. Whether by antibiotics or hypnotherapy, you might just be surprised at how quickly you can be helped.
