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 …

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

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

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 …

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 …

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 …

After 2 Surgeries Im Doing 40% better

Post  BpCookie on Mon Mar 03, 2014 3:13 pm

Hello all you girls sitting on ice packs, Nope, I have not forgotten about you all. Ive had two surgeries where my Dr. cut away skin from my episiotomy scar, my Labia Minora and into my vagina (mostly around the entrance) and he also cut away the Hymen Crunicals (sp). I still have to take Lyrica twice a day, which totally sucks, but along with the surgeries and Lyrica, Im feeling about 40% better. I can sit at the computer and play computer games for 2 or 3 hours, where as before, 1 hour was the most that I could sit for at one time. Ive been able to go out to dinner and actually enjoy myself with out wanting to get the Hell out of there ASAP because of pain. I just bring my little pillow with me and sit on it, which helps. Next month I am being really daring and am going on a short vacation with my hubby. Its a 3 hour drive to our vacation destination and that will be the longest drive that Ive taken in 3 years Smile Also it will be the first vacation that we have had in 3 yrs., because the burning pain prevented me from going any where before. I can't wait to go.

In a few more months, I will see my Dr. and will find out if he can lower my pain even more. I will keep you posted.

I keep you all in my prayers.

Love to you all,
Cookie

Re: After 2 Surgeries Im Doing 40% better

Wanted to add that my Dr. also gave me a script for Lidocaine ointment 5%. It may burn when you first apply it but then it numbs the skin quite well. I think many of you women would get pain relief from this. Make sure its the ointment and not the jelly crap (totally useless) and also make sure its 5% and not 1% (total crap also).

I use it before I have intercourse too. I rub it in and then tell the hubby "you have 15 mins. to get ready and then Im gonna jump you". Its a strange feeling because the outside is numb but the inside isn't. Also, the ointment doesn't seem to bother my hubby. Could you imagine how long our sexual encounters would last if his ya-hoo got numb as well. LOL. It would be like "dude, I don't have all day!!!".

Good luck girls

That's awesome Cookie!

Post  Rainy Day on Fri Mar 07, 2014 11:18 pm

Once in a great while I check up on the site to see how everyone is doing. I came down with V over 2 years ago, but I have been feeling good for over a year. I still have flares now and then, but I would say I am at least 90% better. I am on very little medication. But Cookie, it makes me so happy to hear you are on the road to recovery. The better you feel...the more positive you are...the more your nerves will take a rest. So happy for you!!!

Hi BPCookie - haven't been on for ages but popped in tonight and was pleased to see your post as you had gone off the radar last time I was here. And even happier to read that something is working for you woo hoo! Hope you go from strength to strength. x
