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 …

Hi there,

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 …

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 …

Steroid injections?

Post  MarieJo on Mon Feb 11, 2013 10:39 pm

Has anyone tried steroid injection treatment? I am scheduled to start this on Thursday (Happy Valentine's Day to me! Smile ). This is the next step in my treatment plan after trying P.T. and vaginal valium (didn't help). Just wondering if anyone has had any positive experiences with the injections because I'm starting to run out of options.

I guess the injections are supposed to help with inflammation. I'm a little nervous about it, but willing to try almost anything at this point.

This is actually going to be done by a nurse practitioner who specializes in IC and pelvic floor disorders. I am so grateful to have found her after being blown off by multiple doctors before finally being diagnosed.

Where in Michigan are you from? I heard they had a really good pelvic/vv docs at University of Michigan. My moms cousin suffers from the same things and that's where she went and got some results Smile

Re: Steroid injections?

Post  MarieJo on Wed Feb 13, 2013 9:53 pm

I'm in the metro Detroit area, not too far from Ann Arbor. I may try the U of M route if things don't improve after the injections/continued physical therapy. I work for a competing hospital, so I will end up paying more out of pocket if I go there...although it may be worth it if they can help me get rid of it. My husband and I are (were) trying to conceive right about when all this started for me so I feel like a big part of my life is on hold. Once I get the injections I can't try to get pregnant for a minimum of 2 months (and that's assuming only one set of injections fixes the problem *fingers crossed*).

Honestly, my doctor is out of network, and it was the greatest decision I have ever made, yeah it's a lot more money- but I'm considered "cured" by them. If they're willing to help and have vulvospecialists, why not? My parents are helping me with this and they were so against it because my doc is out of network, but I just couldn't continue the way I was going, so they helped there too, thank god! My parents even admit that it was money worth spent! UM should have a good gynecology prorgram there, wouldn't hurt to give them a call. My mom's cousin was trying to get me to fly there for it, but luckily I found help here. Very Happy But if the injections work, I guess you won't have to worry about it!
