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

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

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 …

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 …

so depressed and need to vent

Post  riag on Sat Jan 12, 2013 11:44 pm

I am new to this board but i have been on it constantly since ive found it. There is so much information here to digest. I used to go the the vulvodynia website on the ic support website because i didnt know any other boards existed for this condition.

I am just so depressed and so tired of juggling all my illnesses. It seems everytime im feeling better for a while, i get knocked back down. im so tired of going from dr to dr looking for answers and help. I am definitely making an appt with dr goldstein as recommended by some other members on this site. this just adds to my depression as we are experiencing financial difficulties and he doesnt take insurance.

Back in oct, i became suicidal. the only thing that got me thru the night was going to a suicide prevention website. I know my children need me. especially my daughter she suffers from mental illness and i alwys need to be here for her. It just gets so hard. My marraige is on the rocks. I am so lonely its unbearable. then to have all this pain , i just sometimes dont want to go on living anymore.

Tomorrow i am calling a psychologist to make an appt i Know i need help. I just know its going to be the run around again. trying to find a good match. Hopefully the first one i see will. any way, thanks for listening. i just needed and outlet right now because i have no one talk to right now.

I'm sorry you are struggling, and I'm sorry nobody has replied until now. You posted a while ago -- did you ever make an appointment with a psychologist? How are you feeling now?

You poor hun. I hope your still on this board and you haven't given up on us. I havent been a member for very long and I didn't see this post until Carby replied to it. I understand how you feel about not wanting to go on living anymore. I have felt like that on many occasion. But Im so glad that Im still here. I have hope that there is a Dr. out there, some where, who can help me.

Hang in there honey and keep trying to find that one thing that will help you. Don't give up. hugs

Re: so depressed and need to vent

Post  riag on Tue Feb 26, 2013 9:12 pm

thanks to both of you. iwas having a really bad day and really needed to vent. i have ibs, fibro, pelvic floor spasms, and vulvodynia. i found a therapist and have been seeing her for almost a month now. not sure if its helping, but im defiinitely not reaching for a bottle of pills and alcohol anymore. its still really hard. i appreciate the concern. sometimes i feel so alone with all my ailments. i hate juggling all my illnesses and having vulvodynia is the worst. not being able to function as a woman is so difficullt. i had made an appt with dr goldstein but had to cancel. i just cant afford it. so i went to see my old urologist whjo originally diagnosed me and he gave me some new creams, topicals and upped my nortriptlyine dose. just waiting for some results now. I havent been on the board since my original vent. i have just been too depressed. thanks for your support!
