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 …

Moving towards health?

Post  cupcake25 on Tue Oct 08, 2013 8:35 pm

Hello, ladies! I haven't been online here for a while, which I suppose is a good sign. I've been doing much better, but things still feel rocky. I've pretty much narrowed my issue down to hormonal imbalance due to starting and stopping the Depo birth control shot. I believe my discomfort and burning pain stems from vaginal dryness caused by hormonal imbalance, though I fear it may also be a bacterial issue, the same one that started everything. I decided to go back to using Luvena vaginal prebiotic and lubricant again (I feared it was irritating me at one point) and it has been a life saver. I feel far less discomfort, and I don't itch or burn like I used to. However, I'm having to use it every day to every couple of days because, without it, I feel like I'm on the verge of bv or v pain again. Unfortunately I now have no health insurance, so I'm in a bad spot. For now I'm just going to continue using Luvena and hope my hormones balance out (I'm not having periods at this time, though I have premenstral pain).

At this time I no longer have burning, but I notice that I sweat a lot down there (eww I know) and sometimes have to change underwear twice a day. Does anyone else have this problem? There's a good chance it could just be because I live in Florida and it's always hot as hell, but it worries me all the same.

Cupcake, glad to hear you're feeling better!

I also suspect my trigger was hormone imbalance from the pill.

I hope that you continue to recover a pain free vagina! Very Happy I love you xxx
