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

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 …

A Glimmer of hope? Inversion table

Post  Delilah1 on Tue Jun 11, 2013 8:59 pm

Hello ladies. For some reason I have had some pain free days this month. I really don't know why. The pain/burning was at a level one during ovulation. It crept back up while on my period and days after but those few days were such a relief I had to tell you all! All I have been doing for months is taking a multivitamin, washing the vulva with only water, deep breathing, rinsing with water after urinating, stretching exercises, lying on an inversion table 3 times a day, taking aveeno oatmeal baths and trying to think positive. I keep telling myself I will be pain free one day and this will go away as quickly and suddenly as it came.
I would like to ask if anyone else has tried an inversion table. The first time I used it I knew I was stretching muscles/tendons I had never stretched before. I felt a stretch in the psoas muscles, inside my vagina, lower abdominal muscles and even the labia felt like they were stretching. I don't know what if any of these things have helped. Just thought I would share. I still think mine was caused by a bacteria or virus that damaged the nerves and the muscles tightened up to guard from the pain. I'm no scientist but thats my feeling! Still waiting to see a specialist. I hope you are all having a pain free day! Thanks for listening!

So glad to hear you have had some pain free days!

I always find period time and just after, the time I am most likely to get a flare up!

Umm...I don't actually know what an inversion table is?

Is it something you can use at home? Embarassed

Thank you Sebby! Yes, you can buy an inversion table online. You lie on your back on it with your feet secured and hang upside down. My husband purchased it for his back. I decided to give it a try and was surprised at the stretch I felt in those areas.

Yes thank you, I will deff be looking into that as I also get back problems. I have noticed my lower back has been quite painful the last few days. This is after my flare up a few weeks ago.

I bend down to pick something up or wash my hair and have to get back up slowly like I am in my 90's! I'm only 32!lol

Gonna have a look at pics of this table, hanging upside down sounds a bit scary tho Shocked lol

Ive always wanted an inversion table for my back pain. I think Im going to buy one now. I know that my pudendal nerves are probably pinched because of the way I have to sit because of my vagina pain. This only cause the nerves to get more pissed off. Also, when your in pain, you tend to tighten your muscles, so this Inversion table may help a lot of us.

Thanks for letting us know. hugs

Amazing! I am so glad you are feeling better! It is so great to hear women fighting through this and having good days as opposed to feeling alone and in pain. I wish you many more pain free days!

Hello ladies!  If you do try the inversion table just take it slow.  I started out just lowering my head slightly.  I could feel the stretch with just that slight recline.  I don't spend a long time in the recline either just long enough to do a few deep breaths and to relax through them.  Thank you for your encouragement and support!  I wish you all pain free days!  Thanks for the laughs BPCookie:D some of your posts have made me laugh out loud!  Thank you Ringo:D  Hanging upside down is really kind of fun Sebby. And it is relaxing for me.  There are warnings for people who have high blood pressure, eye disease and heart disease.  Just check it out before you use it.

At the risk of being a party pooper anyone with stability issues should not use an inversion table until they are stable.  That is all! Wink
