Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Ovary issues!

Post  Mish on Fri Oct 12, 2012 12:34 am

Hi everyone!
I'm wondering whether anyone else has period issues as well? I bleed all the time, pill changes don't help and I get bad cramps to the point that if I'm off the pill I vomit and faint. No doctors can help - does anyone else have this issue combined with vulvodybia and IC?

Hi Mish

From my mri 2 weeks ago a cyst full of blood was found on my right ovary and my pain is on the right side high up at the top of my vagina coincidence? My useless gyno said it is nothing to do with the cyst! Im confused! I have had very having painful periods for 4 years and bleed for 10 - 12 days! When this pain or v happened at the beginning of aug i missed my period but had a kind of brown discharge which kind of exploded at the point when the pain was so horrific i couldnt do anything at all. My 2 periods since have been extra light which is unusal for me. I told my gyno but she just looked vacant she is useless. So im like you is it connected is it that which is causing the problem? Is it hormonal? Ever since this has flared up my face is also covered with acne! Im at my wits end with it seen 5 doctors now they are useless!

Useless!

Post  Mish on Fri Oct 12, 2012 10:22 pm

You sound like me! I first went to a gyno in my teens and he made a joke about me still being a virgin (useless). I went again in my early 20s and a cyst was found and my right ovary was enlarged but they couldn't understand why or how it relates. For years now I've just put up with a period every fortnight and brown discharge in between. One gyno suggested I have endometriosis and when I read the symptoms it fits but like you, I think it's all related somehow. The problem was the gyno that was going to address the endo insisted I get a Myrina and I wanted to do research first (I have enough issues down there as it is) but they wOuldnt address one without the other so I have just put up with it. Perhaps a gyno who works with v could get it a bit better?? Who's this Marek guy?
