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

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 …

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


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 …

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 …

The latest on the essential oils

Post  lavrose on Wed Oct 31, 2012 8:28 pm

So, I realize now that I must "switch" up the oils, in order for them to be effective, as my body seems to get used to them after awhile. Lately Ive been doing 2 drops lavender 2 drops rosemary, 3 drops tea tree suppositories for the last 2 weeks up to 3 times a day, and it didnt seem like I feeling any better, worse actually. I figured I might have"burnt" it in there, as Ive done it before, which means I have to lay off the oils for a few days, and c what Happenes. Sometimes I go back to normal, sometimes I dont. Then I have to try again.
Vuvlvodynia is very time consuming.

I never know what my vagina is gonna do day to day. Its so hard, because its something I have absolutely no control over. Its the most unpredictable thing, ever. Just like my Love life, anywhoo...
So something strange happened. I spent the whole day feeling AWFUL!! Sex was the last thing on my mind for the duration. I felt Burned, as Ive been slamming it with oils for the last 2 weeks, almost 3 times a day. I knew, if I layed off of them, for a few days, Id still feel bad, and have to do it again, not knowing if it was gonna get better, or I should try something else. Its so confusing and frustrating. Ive gone months like this before. With Goldenseal and grapefruit seed extract. Its hideous. Meanwhile things are getting tense with my boyfriend as Ive not been able to be sexual.

I decided to try some eucalyptus oil. One drop on my finger, and then I layed down and kind of rubbed it all on the inside as deep as I could, evenly distributed.
At first IT BURNED like the Dickens, but then after 30 minutes I felt 100% back to normal!!
Seriously. Like Normal. Not burnt or sore or anything. Normal. Normal. Not burned. Not "wierd" or "Off". Normal. And not irritated. Like I could have rough sex and it would not hurt me. It felt completely normal again, and great. I ended having awesome pain free sex 3 times with my boyfriend last nite, and we havnt had sex in 2 weeks.

Strange., I didnt think I was any where near ready for sex. and within the hour!!!
Ive had this happened to me before. Back in the early days when tea tree oil used to work for me, and was my "go to" oil. One application and an hour later Im good to go.
Geranium as well. Where I felt awful , and I didnt want anyone or anything near the area, and the next day I feel awesome, great, and ready to go all nite!!

But I seem to have developed a resistance to the Geranium aswell.
I did the Eucalyptus again this morning, just on the finger, and it BURNED even worse, (cuz it was sore from the sexual activity last nite) to wear I was twitching and hoping around on my seat, but it went away in 30 minutes and I feel great (normal) again...so

I have placed an order with Aura Cacia, for Palma Rosa, Mhytle, Patchouili, Peppermint, White Thyme, and Bergamont oil. Gonna try all them at different times. Read up online they can all be used for womens complaints, vaginal yeast infections etc.

It seems Vulvodynia is a process. Day to day, I take it, day by day, and I learn something new everyday.
Its hard tho. My current boyfriend says I smell like Bug spray and its not very sexy, to smell bug spray while gettin it on with your girl, plus its messy, with the coconut oil.
Whatever. Hes ignorant. I Love him. But he knows nothing, anyway...
He also has a large member (not to be too graphic). Which honestly, I mean its nice and all, but when you have Vulvodynia, its REALLY difficult. It seems Im even MORE prone to problems since Ive been with him.

another frustrating thing is. If you have Interstitial cystitus. The oils can irritate that too, which is also been happening to me lately, as Ive been on them nonstop for awhile.

UGH...so Miserable.

Good Luck, ladies, and GOD speed!!
