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, …

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 …

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 …

pregnancy and pain

Post  halfnakedalmostfamous on Sat Aug 31, 2013 5:48 am

Hi, Im 18 years old, and have been dealing with vulvodynia since I was 8. Ive seen specialists and many gynos, urologists etc. Ive been on medications and nothing has helped. I started smoking marijuana which takes the edge off of my pain. But now I found out that I am pregnant a few weeks ago. I cut out weed, and other medications I was using. I am now 9 weeks along, and my pain wasn't so bad in the beginning. Now it seems to be getting worse and has been causing alot of stress on me. I can't sleep at night, and I used to take sleeping pills when my pain would keep me up. I no longer can do that. Heating pads and ice packs do not seem to have much of an effect on me as usual. Im not sure if its the extra estrogen or just my body changing but heating pads sometimes make my pain worse now. My urologist told me to try coconut oil, olive oil, or seseme oil as a topical. I found some help with the coconut oil, but now that I am pregnant, it just makes it worse. I feel like now I just have to put up with it, but its causing me to dwell back into my depression. I try to distract myself but I have found my mind focusing right back to the pain. Does anyone have any tips of what you used while you were pregnant? Im trying to stay as healthy as can be for this baby.

A glob of vaseline could be added to the vestibule to stop any friction or urine touching the skin if the vestibule is one of your problem areas. I also think you should look up perineum massage which is actually not a massage but a stretching of the superficial pelvic floor and vaginal opening recommended for ladies when pregnant but it would also give you an idea of if your pelvic floor is tight and could be contributing so might help with the pain if it is and will help prepare the area for birth too.
