Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

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.

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 …

Hi— im new here. Im incredibly desperate so if anyone has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it. Im a 20 year old female with vulvodynia and vaginismus.

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 …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Got rid of soy no more problems!

Post  TheresaA. on Sun Feb 24, 2013 8:06 pm

Hi, just thought I needed to post here about something that worked for me. I have had vulvodynia for 10 years, it was only occasionally at first. But then 2 years ago we went vegan. Because of that I started adding much more soy to my diet. My symptoms became much worse and nearly every day. Last month I started doing the Clean diet by Dr Junger. It has you get off all soy, wheat, corn and other food items. I started reading labels and found that soy was in all sorts of things that you would not expect it to be in including some herbal teas. I was also taking soy capsules and using a lotion that had soy in it. Anyways, I know it was the soy, because I had given up the other items before with no relief. Within a few days of starting the diet my symptoms were disappearing and by one week in they were completely gone. It has now been 4 weeks and absolutely no pain! I can't tell you how excited I am about this because the last few years I was never without pain for more than 1 day! I never thought it could be the soy products I was using, but now I have to share with everyone suffering from the same thing an option that worked for me. Give it a try, read labels and quit soy and see if it helps you too! It's worth a shot!

Isn't soy supposed to be a phytoestrogen? If so then that would indicate your problem was hormone imbalance if the symptoms were helped by removing the soy. Long may your painfree days continue!

Thanks!

I believe it is a phytoestrogen, and I was taking it for hot flashes thinking it would help with that. I had been taking soy capsules for probably 7 years. The funny thing is, when I stopped all the soy not only did my vulvodynia pain go away but so did the hot flashes! If I'd only quit sooner my life (and my husbands life) would have been so much better Smile
