I have Vulvodynia and I first experienced pain in the perineum. The symptoms include: burning, itching, stinging, painful intercourse, pain from sitting, pain from wearing tight jeans, etc. Do a search on this board for Vulvodynia. There are lots of Vulvodynia groups online. I use a small amount of Estrace cream as well as a steroid ointment once weekly as maintainance for Lichen Sclerosis. Aveeno baths are soothing and wearing only white cotton underwear is supposed to help. Hope you find some pain relief in the near future.
