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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

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 …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

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 …

colp(oscoscopy) WTH?

colp(oscoscopy) WTH?

Post  BpCookie on Wed Jun 12, 2013 9:53 pm

Hello all you girls sitting on ice packs. Saw my new vagina specialist dude today, he set me up for an apt. to have a colp(oscoscop with laser vaporization of hymenal and caruncle tabs. Thats exactly how they have it written. So he said that he will be burning off a few layers of skin. I guess thats the way they explain it to ppl like me. So Im thinking "DOH! Say what? Your gonna burn my ta ta?". So I tell him "ok, it cant burn any more than it burns already" and if he screws it up and makes it hurt worse, then may as well put me out of my misery, cause I will hunt him down like a Blood Hound. 

So, Im excited but also scared shitless. Has anyone here ever had this done? If so, how did it go and what should I expect?

Thanks and hugs

Hi cookie, I haven't had it done but I would research it to death before you go, I have seen other women online talk about similar things and sometimes not in a good way so I would suggest googling it and trawling through the results and if you find anyone mentioning it ask them about it so you have a clearer picture of what to expect.  Good luck with it though.

Hi Hun, I started Googling it yesterday but ya know how that goes, I get things about Cloposcopy  but not exactly as they have it written on the paper work. So back to the drawing board I guess, to do more research. Thanks

I would be careful googling anything you could drive yourself insane. Remember most people who leave reviews are the ones it didn't work for. That being said when I went to look for my research for my surgery it was all people talking about how bad it was but for me I'm cured. If your doctor thinks that's good for you ask him/her why what their success rates are why do they think you should have this done? And than possibly get a second opinion from another doctor. Google is a source for way too much info. I'm glad I didn't listen to the reviews because (apart from this yeast) I am 100% fine.

Hi Alana hun, I tried Googling just so that I could find out exactly what the surgery entitles but trying to find any info. is ridiculously hard. So, instead, I called the Dr.s office and am waiting for Triage/Nurse to call me back. I will ask her what the name of the surgery is called and where I can find information about it on-line. I asked this Dr. if he had treated women with Lichen before and he said he had. I have pre-op blood work to be done next week and I guess that is when they will go over all the information about the surgery but I want to know right now. :)I also want to know how many of these surgeries he has done in the past. 

What was the name of your surgery again? Sorry, I can't remember.

Mine is way different than yours because it was localized but it was called a vestibulectomy. Obviously look just dont scare yourself to death.. maybe once you figure it out call another speciakist somewhere and see what they think

I found out a bit more about the surgery/procedure. Colposcoscopy is acutaually just the name of the instrument that will be used. The Dr. explained that when Hymen is broke, it ends up having left over tabs. He is going to remove those tabs. The day of the surgery he will ask me what I want him to do and what I dont want him to do. So if he sees something suspicious inside my vagina, he wants to know if he can take care of the problem during the surgery and my answer would be "hell no" As for what I want him to do would be to laser the area where my lichen simplex is located and I would like him to cut some fat off of my ass and stuff it in my breasts. It would be great to wake with my yahoo fixed, a smaller ass and a nice rack. Smile

Hope your all well. Love to you all.
