YOU KNOW eventually they're going to find that 75% of vulvodynia cases are due to __________. Given that vulvodynia is so common (15+% of us), I'm betting on something infectious, like a weird strain of bacteria or yeast or other fungus. If so many of us suffer from it, and if our symptoms corroborate, it seems unlikely that we'd all have some genetic or physical abnormality. 15% is no longer rare.
My vet friend told me I should be biopsied -- my skin down there. Apparently she does skin biopsies (including on a dog's vajayjay! Poor doggie but guess what -- she diagnosed its problem) to determine a whole range of things, from infections to autoimmune disorders. There are skin pathologists who study that stuff specifically. I mean, fuck! Why haven't I been biopsied? Why haven't YOU? WHAT THE FUCK?
So when I go in for my cystoscopy I'm going to ask the doc about that. Hells yeah, snip a bit of my V if ----- if, all else aside, we RULE OUT a skin problem. Because most of my pain seems to be external, and why are you crawling up my urethra with that thing again?
OMFG. Just. answer. the. question. already.
P.S. Here's some more Ace of Base. Shut up, you love it.
