New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist

after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

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

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

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 …

Can you guys tell me your experiences with diflucan/Fluconazole?

Post  mushroomvisionlala on Thu Oct 03, 2013 3:52 am

I was just wondering what you guys experiences were with the anti yeast pink pill Diflucan (Dosage, for how long)..as I was googling and researching on various healthboards and womens chatrooms about their chronic yeast infections and a few of them were on long term Diflucan, and did a dosage like mine to cure their vaginal infections. Some of them were even on maintenance doses for months, etc..this is a candida problem. Oral thrush requires long and strong treatments of Diflucan, even 150mg TWICE a day, everyday, for weeks at a time.

I was on mine (150mg, one pill every day for 3 weeks) but usually they only prescribe like 1 or 3 pills at a time for most people, and thats it. and if that doesnt work for you, your resistant...??
Ofcourse, I cured myself of my own initiative. No Doctor was gonna help me. But the medicine did.

What Im saying is. As part of this healing process. Im pretty f%^$#@! angry/ticked off! that I spent YEARS of my life, suffering with a chronic ONGOING yeast infection that could have been cured, had a doctor CARED or was educated enough to prescribe the proper treatment, or atleast tried to ATTEMPT to cure my problem before giving me a Death sentence diagnoses, or why didnt it dawn on me sooner, same with the Flagyl. You wont meet too many doctors, that will even try to give you a higher than normal dosage if your problem is severe or chronic. Why??

I'm not sure where you live but here in the UK you can buy Fluconazole tablets online for about £1.25 which is what I do rather than go to the doctors. Have to say I haven't tried the longterm approach as I'm sure that isn't my issue but if I need one I just buy whatever I want online. I seem to think there are a few women who have tried it, can't remember who but I'm sure if you search you'll find their posts.

I did it, but it came right back, so I realized it was the probiotic I was taking that caused the yeast, I was doing process and elimination and that's the only thing that I stopped taking (totally by accident went on vacation) and was fine! So you can try it and it might work for you, but for me, it was just something I was taking that created it for a few years and that's about the time I started taking the probiotic. So annoying!

Is Diflucan the answer?

Post  RainyShay77 on Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:37 am

I've been dealing with vulvodynia for 7 years. They've tried everything. The past 18 months they've tried me on medications to target nerve pain. None of it has helped. The only relief I ever get is when I have to take Diflucan. I mentioned this to my doctor a few years ago and we did daily Diflucan for 2 weeks (along with a strict anti-Candida diet) and then backed it down to once a week. A week after backing it down the symptoms would return. We repeated this three times. Each time I would have 90% improvement until about a week after the last daily dose. I spoke with one doctor and she told me Diflucan has anti-inflammatory properties, but I honestly wonder if it is all somehow yeast related. Nothing else (other than some IV steroids about a year after it began) has helped at all.

I currently take one per week to prevent yeast infections since an ointment I'm on for this tends to cause them. I haven't noticed my days following it being much better. Is there any issue with taking Diflucan long term?

It has the potential to cause liver damage. As long as your doctor does regular blood work to check for it I don't think it is an issue.
