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, …

Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

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 …

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


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 …

Has anyone been told by the Gyno......

Post  Intrestn1 on Wed Dec 11, 2013 1:15 am

When I first started havng problems, I noticed that my skin in my vaginal area was changing. I went to the doctor and he did a biopsy to see if there were any cancerous cells. Well, they were not and then he diagnosed me with vulvodynia..... Well, later on down the line, things started to get a little worse and then I was told that I have psoriasis...... Has anyone else been told this? I've looked up information on this but haven't been able to find much on psoriasis of/on the genitals.... Any info will be helpful... THANKS!  Mad

Hey, my GP ages ago thought I had psoriasis as she said it seemed quite 'dry' down there. She gave me emollient creams such as dactacourt and cetraben. They didn't really seem to do much, they didn't irritate which is good i guess and did seem to soothe slightly. But no real change. Now she doesn't think i have that :S

Re: Has anyone been told by the Gyno......

Post  EviE°Bee on Thu Dec 12, 2013 9:59 am

I was never told I had psoriasis but i had 1-3 periods per year and as I got older I started developing menopausal symptoms (dry vagina, hot flashes, urinary frequency) so the dr prescribed me provera to bring my periods down, which I never took, and eventually I started getting my periods regularly.
My very first "regular period" was march of this year and it came with a UTI, a yeast infection, and pain in my vulva. (I experienced vulva pain for the first time 5 yrs ago and it came back with the vengeance this year)

Dry vag can cause a variety of different problems because the skin becomes thin and easily irritated. I had to eliminate perfumed soaps and any other possible irritant. I get why the doc told you that it was psoriasis but i highly doubt it because the vag is still too moist regardless of the dryness. One of my dr's told me to use desitin (diaper rash creame found in baby isle) as a protectant. Not the scented one, the original. It adds moisture which = comfort.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I am not an expert w/ this, so I would encourage you to do some research, but I am 99% sure that psoriasis can be confirmed w/ a skin biopsy. There are a couple dermatologist in the US that soley focus on genital skin issues. I would recommend searching for genital dermatologist to see if there is one near you. If not, call around to clinics to see if you can find a dr that is experienced treating genital dermatology issues. It's my understanding genital dermatology is much different than regular dermatology since it is much different skin.

I know of someone who was able to get her psoriasis into a state of remission by doing an elimination diet to cut out common allergens (dairy, gluten, eggs). She did this with the help of a naturopath and has been able to slowly add done things back iin limit amounts w/ no issues. Hope some of these suggestions help you. Best of luck to you!!!
