So frustrating!!

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 …

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

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. 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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

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 …

Just when I thought I might be getting closer to a solution to my vulvodynia and pelvic floor dysfunction--IC reared its evil head

Post  Fingerscrossed on Sat Nov 23, 2013 5:52 am

I'm feeling really really frustrated right now and need to vent.

I started having lower right back pain last week and then my abdomen also began having issues last Thursday, along with the urge to urinate. I was tentatively diagnosed with a UTI by my university health center, but both of my urinalysis tests came back clear. The meds obviously didn't work and I continued to have pain/discomfort, so I had to go to the Pelvic Pain Center today to talk to Dr. McQuady. Looks like I have interstitial cystitis (IC). This is one of the worst pieces of news I could get--I'm a huge foodie, study the folklore of food, and I'm having a vestibulectomy on December 17th to help fix the vulvodynia. In March I was tested for IC and scored very high on the "PUF" test, but my potassium test was negative, so I thought I was in the clear. I am just so fed up with all of this. I've been dealing with it for four years and I just spent my 24th birthday on Tuesday in pain.

Anybody else dealing with the same thing? Still had a vestibulectomy even though you had IC and were able to have sex with your significant other?

Thank you! I'm getting through it--my symptoms seem to be subsiding. I decided to follow the low-oxalate diet until the symptoms completely subside, and then I'll use the Prelief pills whenever I want to eat chocolate and citrus foods or drink tea. I just have no idea how this started now. I've been perfectly fine for months eating whatever I wanted. My stress levels also haven't changed--I'm in graduate school so I am always stressed.

Yeah they thought I had that too but I only have symptoms with very specific foods. When are you getting your surgery?

December 17. Less than a month now. Also, happy belated birthday to you! I don't know what triggered it--I'm just sticking to a safe diet until the issues go away and then I can add some good stuff in. I really want to eat the leftover chocolate fondue and strawberries in my refrigerator but I know I can't. It really sucks too because I love both of those things.

Yep. And of course I'm interested in food and culture. This issue is not turning out to be a good combination for me--I am proud of being a foodie.

Post  denisefeil on Wed May 14, 2014 2:28 am

I am suffering with pelvic floor dissent. I live in the Washington DC area. I would greatly appreciate any help - I am constantly constipated and nauseous - I am at the end of my rope.

Thank you

are you sure you don't have endometriosis?  I have that and have what you're describing.
