    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 …

    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 …

    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 …

    Just Diagnosed

    Post  carby148 on Wed Feb 20, 2013 10:51 pm

    So I haven't posted since I registered about two weeks ago (you can read my story in the story thread). Today was my appointment. The good news is at this point in time, I'm finally clear of yeast but will continue with my current treatment of Diflucan and Terazol for this month and next month.

    The bad news, although expected, was the diagnosis of Vulvodynia. Apparently I have a mild case, and my first mode of treatment will be a five day application of Lidocaine with a cotton ball at night (apparently I leave the cotton ball between my labia overnight). Has anyone done this?

    Although Vulvodynia is going to change some things for me, I'm so relieved that I finally have a diagnosis and an alternate form of treatment. I was so tired of getting told it's just a yeast infection and to go on my merry way. The woman I met with was so kind and patient, and reassured me it was NOT in my head.

    She also assured me that we will try various treatments, and worse case scenario, she said she has a contact of one of the top docs in our area who knows about Vulvodynia. So that made me feel a bit better as well.

    So glad I signed up here, thanks for letting me share!

    Hi carby148,

    Happy to hear you were properly diagnosed and found a good doctor! I too had tried the lidocaine on a cotton ball at night. For me it didn't really change anything, but we are all different..maybe it will work for you. If it doesn't don't get too down, there are many things you can try.

    Please keep us posted on your journey!

    -Jen
