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, …

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 …

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 …

Pt and medication

Post  Zbrown on Fri Jun 13, 2014 10:32 pm

I was just wondering if anybody here has been doing physio But also taken medication at the same time ? Iv started physio been 3 weeks so far and she sees an improvement all ready in the tightness of my pelvic floor muscles and we are moving on to dialators on my next visit I think .

I still find that I have this slight burning irritation around the vulva skin inner thighs ect not as intense but still quite bothersome , I also have an apointment with my specialist this coming Thursday and she wants to start me on gapapentin ( sorry for bad spelling lol ). Physo and acupuncture don't think I should but I feel this may work better in conjunction ??? Has anyone else had any relief with a combination? I feel if I'm still burning and sore my muscles are just going to keep tensing tbh , I think mine is more generalized not in the vestibule just Smile any help would be great thanks Smile xxxx

Yes.  Unfortunately you know my story and I had surgery because it didn't work.  But it cant hurt to try and if it doesn't work for you, try something else.  But some people have had success with it. Smile

Yes I did physio and antriptiline. Worked well, it took a lot of the pain around the outside away, however the side effects are too much for be and I discontinued the medication.

Yeah I have pain generaliEd but physio is helping a lot dialators are the next thing but i constantly have irritation raw burning :/ she thinks mine is muscle related and that should all subside gradually but tbh If this gapapentin helps speed the burning up why not while doing physio , 7 months it's been and it drains me in every way possible xxx
