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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

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 …

I was on the birth control pill (junel fe lo estrin) from age 13-18 because of severe menstrual pain. I used the xulane patch for a few months when i was 18 but eventually stopped BC altogether because it interferes with my med for …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

Boric acid has made me feel even better, almost healed

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.
