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 …

Update on Women's Health Physio

Post  Sarah001 on Tue Nov 02, 2010 8:39 pm

I've had my third appointment with my WH physio today and it's gone alot better. I think we all recall my shocking resting tone of 20 that kept rising to 29 and then my last appointment where I'd had so many SI joint flare ups I hadn't made alot of difference? Well, the last week or so I've had a reduction in pain, I wasn't sure if it was just a temporary fleeting thing or if I'd managed to reduce my pelvic floor spasm and the only way of knowing was to get myself back on that biofeedback machine. I had 3 nasty SI flare ups at the weekend which also made me wonder if I'd reduced the pelvic floor spasm and that had caused them and I was right, I've managed to get it down to 12-14 so it's now at the level where most other people start from ("normal high" the physio said as opposed to "astoundingly high"!!). Obviously it's still way too high but I'm heading in the right direction at last and it doesn't jump up and down so much now either! And the reduction in symptoms is so good I could cry! I haven't changed my meds, still on 50mg of Ami a day as I have been for a couple of months so it's definitely not anything to do with that, the Ami wasn't touching the soreness before. I still get really sore with provocation such as friction or sitting, or using the bio probe, but if not provoked my pain isn't quite so bad. She was thrilled I'd managed to get somewhere even with my unstable pelvic joints and I'm really pleased, it's the first success I've ever had in physio in the last 6 years!!

That's fabulous news Sarah! You must have been working heaps on it to reduce by so much! It's so encouraging when you get to see results from all your efforts and hard work.
Stay strong and keep it up

I had another appointment booked in today with the WH Physio and I drove an hour in the ice only to get there and find the place dark and locked up! No-one has called me and the drive home was even worse because there was freezing fog to add to the problems by that time so I'm disappointed to say the least. I'm not going back until next year now so hopefully the snow and minus 10 temperature we've had here all week will be over by then. I delayed taking the pregabalin because I had to drive to this appointment too. Rolling Eyes Bloody British weather!
