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

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 …

Feeling like my life is out of control.....

Post  hondachick96 on Mon Apr 07, 2014 11:10 pm

I will make this as brief as I can....last June I started experiencing symptoms of a yeast infection. I can usually tell if I have one as I have dealt with them my entire life. So, I took some Flagyl and Diflucan (sp). That wasn't working so, I decided to go to the GYN. She said that she didn't see anything under the microscope and said that she would prescribe me some more medication. That still didn't work. I found it uncomfortable to sit, ride a bike, have sex and sometimes run/stand/walk. I was miserable. I went back to the doctor and she did an STD test. Came back negative. So, she told me that she thinks she I suffer from Vulvadynia. She prescribed me  10 mg Antitripline. It made me soooo tired and I felt sluggish and more tired the next morning so I stopped taking it. She gave me anti-steroid creams, yeast infection medicine and anti-flammatory creams. Nothing was working. I changed my soap. I work out 5 times a week and would hurry back to my office/home to shower and make sure I was clean. I thought maybe that was aggravating me. Still, nothing...my GYN suggested that I take Probiotics. It still wasn't helping but the symptoms weren't as severe as before. For about 5 months I didn't have any issues. Back in 2011 I experienced this. I remember I thought I had a stubborn yeast infection that I couldn't get rid of. I went to the doctor several times, again, checked for STD's and yeast infection and everything came back normal. That particular instance only lasted 1 month. This time, it has been going on since last June.  Then, last Thursday, the symptoms started up again. Great....So, I am thinking I have another yeast infection because that's what it feels like. I will have pain inside my vagina on the left side near the opening. Then, it will change to tingling around my Clitoris and Vulva area...then it will move to my left side, then to the middle opening of my vagina. Sex is painful. I use Astro-glide whenever I have sex with my fiancé because it makes it easier but afterwards, omg, I am paying for it. It burns like crazy! But this doesn't happen every time we have sex. It's hit and miss. I hate that I have to use lubricant to have sex. I'm 36 years old. I do not have any medical problems. I have had my Thyroid checked, I work out, eat right. But I have found myself drinking 1-2 glasses a wine a night because it helps numb the pain. I don't want this to be  my relief. My Fiancé' has been very supportive despite my ways of thinking. This has caused me to feel somewhat depressed, anxious, lowered-self esteem and confidence because I can't perform sexually as I would like. I find myself stressing myself out because I worry about my Fiancé' just getting fed up and being like, "I can't deal with this. I want a woman who can please me." He has never said that I know deep down that he wouldn't but still, does it cross my mind, yes.  I get some solace from him still wanting to marry despite my condition. I know there is no cure for this condition. I guess I am more or less just venting because I feel so isolated and alone.....  Crying or Very sad

So similar to how I have felt. Make sure first and foremost that you communicate with your fiance throughout this (my fiance and I have made sure to do so, and I've had this issue now for a bit over 4 years). I'd encourage you to try and work with your doctor or find one who can treat you better if you don't feel that this doctor is helping. Amitriptyline is an option but I had some bad side effects, as I did with other medications. I ended up having surgery, which has helped but not fixed things.

Push yourself to be positive; it's really hard, but once you can do it sometimes, life isn't as bad. <3
