Also, I've had some issues with pain during piv penetration, like my vagina is clamping up. It's lessened in severity and we've learned to work with and around it, but I'm still hesitant to do kegel exercises because of it. Will having toned kegels make vulvodynia worse? The way I see it, if my pc muscles are clamping down and causing piv pain, I don't want to make them stronger. Then again, working out my kegels might give me more control over relaxing them.
By the way, my vulvodynia is self-diagnosed and since it's gotten a bunch better, I wasn't planning on talking to a doc about it until my pap in April.
