So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. 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 …

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

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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

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 …

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 …

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 …

Botox Injection

Botox Injection

Post  Husband on Fri Oct 01, 2010 3:07 pm

Hi Ladys,
Today is he day after. First at all I have to say, if this is going to work, I really do not understand, why Botox is not the therapy of first choice. It took about 10 minutes and in accordance with my wife, it was even not painful except this moment, when the needle is touching the skin for one second. She got this at 4 points and now we have to wait and see, how it works.
So fare no side effects. I will keep you informed.

Hi Jules,
So fare there is a positive development in spite of a 50 % reduction of Amitriptylin. This week she will stop taking Amitriptylin. The doctor told her it will last between 4 weeks in any case up to 12 weeks or maybe more. The problem seems to be the fact, that for generalized Vulvodynia it is not so easy to find the exact area for the injection. Maybe he has to repeat some injection elsewhere. But up to now we are happy.

I'm glad to hear things are going well so far. Is she going off the Amit. as a result of side effects or it just didn't work? I also have generalized Vulvodynia. I have used Botox on my forehead for frown lines. it only lasts for about a month for me. i imagine it would be the same in the vulva. hope your wife continues to have a decrease in her pain.

Hi Jules;
After the reduction of Ami the pain came back. Back to 25mg Ami the pain dropped on an acceptable level. So we decided to repeat the treatment with a slight increase of 30 units Botox. But there seems to be not a real significant improvement. She still takes Ami and is it o.K, almost pain free, but we do not know how much the influence of Botox is. Maybe she is anyhow in a painless phase.
I think Botox is a very good option for vestibule vulvodynia not for generalized form.
The second injection has been done last week so I will keep you informed.

It does not work, in spite of the second injection there is a flare up. However my wife shared the Botox with a woman, who suffered not at generalized vulvodynia and she reported an improvement.
Explanation for not working in our case could be: Botox is not a painkiller; there is more a relaxing influence at those areas. And for any pain which is linked to pelvic muscles problems this treatment is most recommendable.

vulvoldynia, hip pain, and botox

Post  chester on Wed Nov 24, 2010 3:09 am

Hi! I am new here and just read your post. I live in ny and found a dr who seems to have found a connection between hip pain and vulvoldynia for SOME paitents she has found that paitents with the hip pain, botox helps and others the botox loosens muscles that are overcompensating for some other pelvic floor issue and can make the pain worse! I dont remember all the details but next time i am there i will ask her.

husband, has your wife tried Lyrica? There are other meds that may help. Sorry the Botox did not work. Sometimes it takes the right mix of meds and also adding physical therapy. Good luck!

Chester....thanks for the info.

Hi Jules, yes she also tried Lyrica. But she thinks Ami works better. However, since a few days, there is really a bad flare up. I recommended using both in combination. We will see….
