New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

vaginal cream

Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:46 pm by LindafromNJ

I have been given ABC cream to start using for my condition. This is gabapentin, amitriptyline and baclofen cream. Has anyone tried this. Also has anyone used lidocaine. My doctor told me not to use it. It is so sore at the vaginal opening. Has anyone used it there. Please respond!!

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

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

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

I think the amitriptline has failed :(

Post  tinkerbelle2 on Fri Apr 04, 2014 6:50 am

Just got up to 75mg and had the worst week of depression I have ever experienced. Hardly able to sleep or eat when before I had no trouble sleeping even on the ami and I love food. Nothing is reassuring or comforting me Sad I am obsessing about things and having horrible intrusive thoughts.

Hi Tinks
Sorry to hear your not well. I have had a bout of depression for the very first time and I know its a horrible place to be in. I think you need to try new medication such as lyirca and also switch to nortriptyline and take them together. I have just had an appointment last week with the best of the best in Australia and that is what they recommend for nerve pain in vulvodynia. I take these and I have no pain. I am just on a quest to find a cure with out medication. I hope you are able to get a doctor to prescribe these for you. I feel control of the pain is obviously the very first priority. I wish you all the best and am here for you, Z

Alana I tried Gaba and had really bad headaches and blurry sight when i was on 2x 300mg a day! it was really bad.
Zarli sorry to hear you've been feeling low too Sad it's very horrible and isolating isn't it?

I think that is a very good suggestion about trying 2 meds at once! that's what a lot of women who had success stories did. I will definitely be mentioning nori and lyrica to gp. I agree, I hate being on such heavy duty meds!! it's serious stuff. I am going to try some vitamins that some of the girls have some relief with like magnesium and calcium citrate Smile x
