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 …

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 …

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 …

is there a relationship with monthly cramps?

Post  Elc88 on Fri Aug 02, 2013 9:40 pm

This is probably a strange one, and I hope it hasn't been asked before. I have always suffered from painful periods - most months, I wind up curled up in a little ball trying not to faint! I sometimes wonder if what I'm going through is in any way related. I do notice a slightly worse burning semsation, but use natural products. Does anyone else suffer with this as well? My periods have never been the same since I started on the microgynon pill ages ago, and that's when all my pain first started (though it got a lot worse when I went on my second contraceptive pill)

I have it too and was just diagnosed with endometriosis so maybe it's related to that too? But vulvodynia wouldn't cause cramps but during my period I itch and burn worse too but cramps I woukd imagine wouldnt go with v.

I don't think the v causes the cramps, but wondered if cramps are something that can lead to V. I know they're very separate things, but if you're used to crippling pain in that region (and it's all in a way linked to reproduction) is it possible it's a trigger?

You probably have two separate things going on. Like I said I had vulvodynia and on top if that endometriosis. When you get cramps I would assume that the pain might be worse because your muscles tighten down there too but I doubt its related. When I had vulvodynia it was alwqys worse with my period but so were my cramps. I finally went on birth control and that helped big time

I get painful periods, I don't think they are particularly linked? Cramps are the womb contracting, although if we have pelvic floor dysfunction then I do wonder if the womb cramps could set off the pelvic floor muscles?
I find my vulvodynia is worse just before a period so when I get the cramps the V has eased off. Cramps are pretty bad today and I said I would do dinner Sad gonna get hubby to help and dose myself up...... With whiskey if I need to! Lol
