Maca Root to treat Vulvodynia
Has anyone tried or had success with Maca for treating this condition. I have recently been diagnosed with Vulvodynia after a year and a half of suffering. I have been prescribed Gabapentin and Lidocaine to cope with the pain. So far, no relief. I firmly believe that my Vulvodynia is hormone related. I am only 29 years old, still have regular periods but every month I seem to be going through this pattern of emotional highs and lows, extreme pain in vulva to none what so ever, my skin clears up after I ovulate. My pain is worse during my period up until I ovulate. I have just started taking Maca Powder to try to balance out my hormones. I was just wondering if anyone else has discovered Maca. All of the research that I have done indicates that Maca is very potent and an excellent way to balance hormones in men and women. I also sell a lot of it at the health food store that I work at. I get great feedback, unfortunately, I have yet to run into another women who is willing to talk about vulvodynia or even asked me about it. Anyway, I love love some feed back. And of course, I will report my findings after I have the opportunity to take the Maca for awhile and see if it works for me.
