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 …

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 …

I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

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 …

Magnesium oil/flakes

Post  Sunflower82 on Tue Apr 22, 2014 5:06 pm

Hi,
I've been reading about magnesium and how increase you intake can generally help!
Has anyone had any expeience of using the oil or flakes as a soak in the bath? I would like to give it a try but I don't use anything in the bath and I wonder if it can affect the skin around the vulvar ?

Many thanks

Katie

As a nurse, I'm thinking you should, and I do, take magnesium by mouth not in a bath. It will help relax muscles. I cannot not say if it is helping or not as I have had an interruption in my daily routine. I do know it is taken to help relax and also will help you not be constipated when taking calcium which constipates. I have taken as much as 400 mg daily but not lately. If you get diarriah cut back.

Magnesium flakes/oil

Post  Sunflower82 on Wed Apr 23, 2014 7:35 am

Hi,
Thanks for your reply, I tested out the flakes last night only used half a bag but it felt ok down below! Hoping it will help to relax me, I am taking a pre natal vitamin with magnesium in but when I checked the level it's only 35mg so I may start an additional supplement but I think I have to be careful as I'm 5 and a half weeks pregnant!

Thanks

Katie

Right now I'm actually trying magnesium oil directly onto my vulva, actually. I'll report back on how it works, but I think it might be helping.

As for whether you should get the extra magnesium, the vast majority of people are very low in magnesium, if not deficient. Calculate how much you're getting through other sources, look up how much is the ideal amount for a pregnant woman, and then check how much you'll get from the magnesium oil. I think it's easier to calculate with the oil in spray form than it is if you put Epsom salts into the bath. My guess is that you'd still be fine.

It can be a skin irritant, though. If it is for you, there are two things you can do. One is to put on a layer of plain vegetable oil first. I'm finding hempseed oil from the supermarket to be great for that, it's very light and absorbs fast. (And I end up with beautifully moisturised skin.) The other is to dilute the magnesium oil by adding a bit of water to it.
