New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

vaginal cream

Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:46 pm by LindafromNJ

I have been given ABC cream to start using for my condition. This is gabapentin, amitriptyline and baclofen cream. Has anyone tried this. Also has anyone used lidocaine. My doctor told me not to use it. It is so sore at the vaginal opening. Has anyone used it there. Please respond!!

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

My History

Post  Need Hope on Mon Oct 22, 2012 11:56 pm

- 29 years old
- just married
- Pain for over a year
-Just diagnosed with Vulvar Vestibulitis
- Put on low-dose anti- depressant and estrogen cream nightly. Too early to notice a difference.

- My pain seems to be related to my cycle.
-I feel best during ovulation.
-I feel the worst before and after my period.
- The pain changes. Sometimes severe itching. Sometimes it feels like a burn. Sometimes all over. Sometimes only on the right side or the clitoris.

Could this be related to my hormones??
Took a lo-estrogen pill and stopped a few months before the pain took hold. Any ideas?
I was also treated for bv and yeast for four months straight. I was misdiagnosed. Harsh antibiotics made the pain terrible.

I have also developed an anal fissure and hemorrhoids during this past year.
I find it very unusual that all of this has occurred at once. Is there a connection?
I was so healthy before this started. Lots of veggies and exercise. Now my quality of life has hit a low.

The depression and anxiety from this disease is crippling. Sometimes I wish it was cancer. At least then it would be cured, or the pain would stop eventually.
I wake up everynight.

Any thoughts? Thank you.

Same thing happened to me, now I'm in the same boat you are. Yes, I think it could all be related. My pain changes too, for the first half of my month, I'm fine, for the second half, forget it! I very much thing the anti's helped make my pain worse, but it may have always been there, just may have flared.
