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 …

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, …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Not really my thing to be honest. I tried acupuncture and massage and it doesn't really do anything. Acupuncture made me feel good that day but than I would cramp to the point I couldn't stand up and bleed like crazy. So I stopped going. The only thing that helped me really was my surgery. As for yeast, try AZO over the counter it helps I hadn't had a yeast infection since 4 months until now. Worth a shot.

Yeah, honestly the whole natural approach seems hocus pocus to me. None of it helped me. But than you never know I guess. I wish I had a better answer for you Sad

It is! I recommend a private doctor, but I understand if you cant- even with a private doctor it took me years to find the right one. They were diagnosing me from herpes to dryness. My doctor now finally said I see your problem here it is and here is what I can do. Thank god! But it took from the time I was 20 or 21 to when I finally got the surgery at 27. So years. Be patient, someone will eventually help you. But my advice with some of these girls on here are like OMG IM GONNA TRY THIS and than THIS and than they have a mess and are overwhelmed of too much stuff that they are trying not knowing what any of it really does. Yeah, you can ingest coconut oil, but really that's not going to do anything for you except cause you to break out. Yes you can rub crap on your vag but again is that really doing anything for you? Probably not. BREATHE and realize that someone can help you but don't go crazy with the natural stuff. And remember anyone can claim a cure and take your money, so be careful!!!!!

Yeah like iv read majority of all the posts on here and some are crazy ! Like tbh I can't even manage pants ever mind half of the treatments down there lol, no I honestly did pay to go private and she examined me red the notes my gp gave to take with me and asked a lot of questions , I did say visually I can't see anything wrong except a bit of redness but I explained the pain was burning so bad felt raw burning sensation. I told her what most of the other doctors said there's nothing visually wrong and kept telling me I had thrush bv ect but all where negative ! She said just because there's nothing visually wrong doesn't mean there isn't a problem which kind of reassured me I finally have someone listening to me but wether she can help me is another thing I do hope so currently waiting on my appointment to see her and she can give me something for relief idk have to be hopeful Smile x

I don't know where you live by I googled something like "vulvodynia specialsts and where I lived" and found my doctor that way. Sometimes you do need the specialist!
