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 …

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

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 …

Vulvodynia in Ireland

Post  rubina on Mon Oct 18, 2010 12:07 pm

If anyone had told me the negative impact my vagina/vulva would have on my life I wouldnt have believed them!

I live in Dublin and after 5 years of head wrecking symptoms I might be starting to get some answers. To cut a very long story short I thought I was suffering from recurrent thrush but recently went to see a Gynae who completetly threw it out of the window!She suspects nerve damage and I am now on Neurontin.Its early days so I am keeping my fingers crossed it will work.

I sympathise with all of you who are experiencing something very similar. Remain hopeful and believe that the day will come when you go to bed at night and realise that you didnt think about your vagina once!!!!!

Hi Rubina

I'm also new here and busy soaking up all of the advise and experience everyone is posting here. I think one of the hardest things is to find a practitioner who is experienced and caring. I've just read that you live in Dublin and that reminded me that a lovely lady from the Pelvic Partnership recommended a physio in Dublin to me a while ago. I've kept her contact details, but having to fly somewhere to get treated seems a little excessive at the moment. But it might be useful for you.

Anyway, the physio is called Maeve Whelan, and she treats a variety of pelvic floor problems by manually manipulating the pelvic floor and palpating the pelvic floor muscles internaly through the vagina. Doesn't sound very pleasant, but she seems to have really helped that lady and also some of the other committee members from the pelvic partnership.

Here are her details: www.milltownphysiotherapy.com and www.pelvicphysiotherapy.com.

Hope this might help you.

Hi min77.
Thanks so mush for passing on that info. Can you believe my psychotherapist actually gave me the same name!!!!! That physiotherapist must be really good! Am waiting to see how I get on with the medication but I certainly am not ruling anything out as a possible cure.
Take care
Rubina
