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

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 …

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


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 …

Joy 123 my story

Post  Joy 123 on Thu Apr 25, 2013 7:07 am

I am 58 years of age, married for 37 years, had vaginal inflammation off and on for 30 years, appearing to occurr especially after drinking bubbly wines or good quality wines, bubbly strawberry wine or even strong mixed drinks. Diflucan tablets helped initially but over time no longer work as with most thrush treatments. Sometimes when I had no inflammation I'd have a period then inflammation followed taking me months to recover using all the candida medications available. I have given 3 Gyno's a year each to try to help me, but each one virtually put me through the same medications. I am now allergic to the preservatives in any vaginal treatments and Hormone Replacement Therapy gives my fibroids. At age 50 my periods ceased never to return again, thank goodness but it seems like my vulvodynia is here to stay as for the last 8 years I have not been able to have sex because of how sore and raw I feel. My GP suggested I try HRT patches which I did and to my disbelief my vaginal pain went and sex was at last comfortable. This relief only lasted 4 months then pain was back, so now the patches don't work. I have recently spent 2 months on Naturopath treatment taking bucket loads of pro-biotics and a diet of unprocessed foods, but with no improvement. My next and I feel possibly last idea is to try a Doctor who specializes in Chinese Medicine, has anyone had any possitive results from Chinese Medicine.

I have that too with some alcoholic drinks, what do you mean by inflammation tho? Mine just burns and goes away after a minute its the weirdest thing. It hits me and then goes away so weird. I hate being a girl. We get shit on, unless a woman is healthy we get the raw end Sad

You're vaginal tissue gets thinner and burns at menopause, it could just be normal wear and tear. I forget what that's called, but there are creams and such to help. I did acupuncture, and it helped, but it didn't take it away 100%. Sorry to hear that your pain came back that sucks, it's like you feel better than BAM! Something else to hinder you and your vagina rears its ugly head. So frustrating!
