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 …

vaginal cream

Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:46 pm by LindafromNJ

I have been given ABC cream to start using for my condition. This is gabapentin, amitriptyline and baclofen cream. Has anyone tried this. Also has anyone used lidocaine. My doctor told me not to use it. It is so sore at the vaginal opening. Has anyone used it there. Please respond!!

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

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.

Could it be?

Post  quell183 on Thu Oct 03, 2013 4:06 am

So I've posted a topic before asking if anyoine felt the same way i did, as in the symptoms i have been having but im not sure. Im thinking maybe this could be a really bad yeast infection or something? Ive never had one so i don't really know what they are like, so maybe you can help me out?
I have a burning feeling on the left side of my vagina, i would say its like a really hot feeling inside. At my last appointment the dr said he saw discharge when he inserted the speculum (isnt discharge normal?)He did a culture and nothing showed up. I do get discharge, sometimes its really runny like water and other times its a lot thicker and kind of white. My vagina does not itch or smell or anything and i was told there was a little tiny cut at the entrance and the q tip test showed i was very sensitive in a particular area.I had gotten meds before but they didnt help. Im thinking maybe its a stubborn infection that maybe didnt show up in the cultures because i read stories on here about women who have discovered its just a bad infection. The only thing that makes me think it is something else is the fact that it is only on 1 side.
This first happened may 2013 so 5 months ago. What do you think?

Hi quell, that is what I am wondering too!

I have had thrush before and this feels like a worse version of that.

But then i don't get why cultures wouldn't show yeast? Ahh it's so confusing and frustrating.
Tomorrow i think i'll buy a canesten suppository and oral tablet and see if anything happens.

Yea it is very confusing. I read some women had to take very high dosages in order for it to go away, not just a one time thing. Hopefully it works for you. Let us know what happens. Good luck

My experience of yeast infections is they also involve itching and have a cottage cheese type discharge not just the normal milky or clear discharge. I've had loads of them and every time those symptoms have been present.

That is true...when I had thrush it was itchy but also was terribly sore and fiery internally.

No luck with the canesten as yet

Hello, quell! It's tough to say whether it's yeast or not sometimes. I'd suspect that if you had labs done and they came up negative that you don't have an infection, but you should be sure the doctor tested for different strains of yeast. The discharge you describe sounds normal, though. I learned the hard way that our body is supposed to produce discharge (I was incredibly uneducated and over medicated thinking I had an infection when I didn't). Having said all that, perhaps you are having vaginal dryness? Or it could simply be inflammation and irritation from medication- have you been trying a lot of topical creams? My pain was at its worst when I was applying anything and everything the doctors gave me.
