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 …

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 …

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 …

Post Full Vestibulectomy - 5 Years Later - Please Read

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Hey ya'll I am new!

Post  kellypitts on Sat Jan 05, 2013 12:43 am

My name is Kelly and if you can't tell I am from the great state of Tennessee. I live near Nashville. I am 25 years old and have been married to a great man for three years. Last year my New Years resolution was to seek help for a big problem...I couldn't have sex with my husband. He literally could not penetrate me at all. I did some online research assumed I had vaginismus and mostly pretended like it wasn't happening. I got brave and visited an amazing clinic in Nashville and got diagnosed with high tone PFD. I had never even heard of this before. I did physical therapy and stretched with dialators for almost a year finally my husband and I were able to have penetrative sex!!!!

Throughout this process a "burning" "stabbing" problem I have had and tried my hardest to ignore for years got increasingly worse. I was recently diagnosed with vulvodynia and I am trying to understand the diagnosis and stay positive. Very fortunately sex is not a trigger for me. Mine seems to be unprovoked and sporadic meaning it comes on for no reason but also there are times I am completely pain free. I am currently using a 5% lidocaine numbing cream during flares which takes the edge off occasionally, vaginal Valium, and most recently I am taking Savella a medication that works to calm the nerves in my vulva. I look forward to connecting with you and learning as much as I can!
