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.

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 …

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 …

Does Amitriptyline help with the raw/swolen feeling?

Post  Delilah1 on Tue Dec 03, 2013 11:22 pm

Hello ladies, I was wondering if Amitriptyline helps with the feeling of rawness around the vestibule and the sensation of swelling?
My burning pain comes and goes now...Thanks for any info!

Thank you Zarli! Do you still have redness? Does the med help with that too? How did all this start for you?

Yes the redness has gone and swelling too. I get itchy if I use the wrong soap or if I go for a swim but they gave me a cream which is working for that. My story is long starting 6 years ago, to cut it short 'V' raised its ugly head over night with neuralgia type pain, redness, rawness, itchy etc...
For me its the pain that was the worst I couldn't handle it and it scares me to even think about it to be honest. After many Doctors and specialist I was finely put on Ami starting at 10mg for aweek then up to 20mg until I got to 35gm which then stopped all SYMPTOMS for 4 years. Then it stopped working and I went on Lyrica and Nortriptyline and it went again.
That's the short of it...

Good Luck Delilah and I'm always here for you
Zxx

Hi Delilah - Yes it helped me with the burning and the rawness - I was "lucky" in that I only needed a 10mg dose. I swopped to nortriptyline though - cos the side effects from the ami were too much.
