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

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 …

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

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

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 …

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 …

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.

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 …

Post  tinkerbelle2 on Thu Jan 16, 2014 7:35 pm

MY GP is hopeful that it will really reduce the pain... i had little luck with the gabapentin. But I really hope this helps and maybe even makes everything back to normal! Did any of you have much luck with ami ?

Hey Tinks
YES YES it worked for me for 4 years....I went off it too quickly and my pain came back. It didn't work when the pain came back so they swapped me to nortriptyline which is in the same family. The dose is too low for an antidepressant...I started on 10 mg slowly increasing to 35mg (which is low). That worked but I had no improvement until I had reached 35mg, which is the normal they tell me. The main problem of this med for me was weight gain and constipation but compared to having pain it never bothered me. The tiredness wears off so don't panic it could make you really sleepy but please know it does go away on the most part. I take meds about 2 hours before bed and then you feel better in the morning.

Good Luck....If it works for you let me know and I can tell you what my specialist said I should have done when trying to get off them. I know we are all different but the most info you can get is always helpful.

xx Z

really hope it works for you as it does for me, tinkerbelle. It has finally finally calmed down my nerve pain. It took 2 months to work for me, so please be patient and give it a try just so you can cross it off your list. The only side effects I get from it are anger and hostility mixed with some craziness Very Happy the tiredness feeling should (at least should) go away after the first few weeks

however, after scavenging the dark depths of the internet for this disease, most women seem to react very well to lyrica (including on other forums for similar painful conditions like IC, etc)

magnesium works for constipation AND nerve pain (it calms down the CNS)...fybogel is also quite good!
