Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

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, …

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

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 …

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 …

i just want to cry

Post  drcritten on Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:11 am

I was diagnosed with vv in 2005 after using a monistat 1 yeast infx med. I couldn't sit, stand, wear underwear or have sex. In 2007 I was prescribed cymbalta and I was pain free for 6 years. I could exercise, have sex etc. 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis. I've been on flaggly and cipro and the burning has returned. No discharge, tests come back negative. The nightmare of vv has returned. I.start a very prestigious job tomorrow and I can't get happy or excited. I can't make love to my husband who.is so.supportive and kind. I sleep.all day and am angry when I wake up. Please tell me this is just a bad flare up. I want my life back. I want to take my kids to the pool. Please god if you can read my words, please help me, or send me someone who can

drcritten,

I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing pain again. It's possible that it could be a bad flare up. I had surgery around this time last year and it pretty much cleared up all my symptoms, but every once in a while I get a bad flare up. Sometimes they last for a few days or on and off for a week or two. I just try to keep the area clean and sometimes I'll put some lidocaine gel on the painful areas. If things don't change with in a week I'd go to a specialist and continue treatment.

I know it's hard, but try not to fall into a depression. You could maybe try talking to a therapist? Purely a suggestion. I did when I was going through all this and it really helped me.

Stay strong!

-Jen
