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

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 …

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, …

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 …

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 …

Boric acid has made me feel even better, almost healed

Post  lavrose on Wed Jan 08, 2014 2:51 pm

As you guys no, Ive been on here a long time, posting about my various herbal and essential oil (mad scientist vaginal concoction suppository adventures) burning myself , causing shedding skin, NOT RECOMMENDED, but hey, I was trying and fighting the good fight...Oils did not work to CURE the infection, and even when I thought they were making me feel better, eventually, they stopped working, and I felt the "Burning Bush" feeling, sensation come back full force, made worse by the oils.
A marriage and a divorce, etc, Ive been using Boric acid everyday sometimes twice a day (gave up on the oils) and while the Boric Acid is in..I feel 100% normal down there, and can have sex sometimes (painlessly, and pleasurable, but its messy, as Boric Acid creates an embarrassing watery discharge) Just tell him your a squirter Smile) LOL!!.. nah just joking..anyay..it sux, but if I miss a day of it, the uncomfortable feeling comes back..so ive been doing Boric acid capsules inserted in the vagina exclusively, and a better diet, ofcourse) with supplements for about 5 months now, and every month I seem to feel better, and better, more normal, my period cycle also feels better, and I do the suppositories at night, even while Im menstruating.
Im hoping one day ill eventually cure) but that's ALOT to ask, im just glad I can have these momentary moments of pleasure and normalness.

Recently, in the last month or so, Ive been trying a product called "Yeast Arrest" by Vitanica, vaginal suppositories, ..with Homeopathic herbs, and borax, and I feel even better.
One women on the website VaginaPagina said she was on Boric Acid for a YEAR and eventually cured, so who knows. Hoping for the best.

Post  lavrose on Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:01 pm

but like I said..I cant go a DAY without these treatments, or it feels like HELL down there again..so..as long as its in there..I feel NORMAL..but give it a day or two and the feeling comes sneaking back, gradually..

The yeast arrest on the other hand, has made me feel, I can go almost 2 days without medicine up in there and still feel alright..so like I said..a year or two of this, and maybe one day, I will be cured.

Also, please use Carlsons Vitamin E suppositories along with the Boric acid, as it can be terribly drying.

Also, sex can be difficult as (altho it feels great) your man knows something is up 9in there) as its either slippery, or overly wet, and dry too, as Boric acid can be drying(use lube)

its Hell, and I feel like half a women, and its embarrassing..but what can I do??

That's really interesting! It's an idea I've been toying with for a while but haven't given it a go yet. Dyou know what it actually is in the boric acid that takes the pain away? And are there any side effects except the dryness and watery discharge?

if you feel better with boric acid that means that you have chronic yeast infection right? I am asking because the results of my biopsy came out, and it shows only inflammation. Therefore, boric acid it's not for me.

I think boric acid lowers PH too. I sometimes wonder if my pain isn't from high ph levels. My ph is always above 6

Boric acid is bacteriostatic and fungistatic. Bactericidal agents kill bacteria directly, and bacteriostatic agents stop bacteria from growing. Fungistatic agents inhibit growth, whereas fungicidal kills fungal pathogens.

Bacteriostatic and fungistatic agents work by allowing our own immune system to take control of the infection (it gives us a chance to not be so outnumbered). Don't let this freak you out though because a lot of antibiotics are bacteriostatic...we just aren't told how the drugs we take work. There are a lot of ways doctors believe boric acid helps with BV or yeast infections, including its potential biofilm removal ability.

I used boric acid 600mg suppositories once a day before bed. At first my doctor had them compounded in a fattibase through a pharmacy, but I found that just inserting a regular capsule of boric acid was less irritating and dissolved fine. I did not make my own like some people suggest. I just ordered pre-made ones online.

They absolutely cured whatever infection I had that was causing constant internal burning and prickling at my urethra (as well as a horrible poking pain I got with every period). I used it once a day for 14 days (Naturopath wanted me to do it for 30 days), then twice a week in between periods, and every day of my period for 3 months.

However, I want to strongly caution you when using boric acid because I am now left with an extremely bad case of noninfectious inflammatory vaginitis (i.e. inflammation of the vagina not caused by an infection). I'm not saying boric acid alone did this to me, but I do believe it caused my vagina to be more inflamed. I do not regret using it to relieve the infection, but I do regret using it as long as my Naturopath recommended. If pH is your concern, there are a lot of other more gentle methods to help restore a healthy acidic pH.
