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 …

Inflammation and hormones! HELP!

Post  sailor_moon on Mon Jul 07, 2014 12:04 am

Hi ladies,

I have been dealing with a chronic itch and burning for the last year. I am only 26. I had 2 biopsies done, the first one was normal, the second one showed chronic non-specific inflammation.

Does vulvodynia involve chronic inflammation? Because doctors tell me that if I had vulvodynia my vulva would look normal with no inflammation. I do not have pain at touch of a q-tip test.

I have intense itching on an everyday basis as well as burning leading up to my period. My periods are all over the place. 47 days apart, 66 days apart ect.

I have tried every lotion and potion on the market. If I hear the word "steroid cream" one more time I am going to scream, steriod cream does not work!!!

I feel like this thing is coming from the inside out. I also experience constant nausea, lethargy, vomiting and acne. I feel like my problem is hormonal but doctors do a basic blood test and tell me my hormones are "good" and dismiss me. All they want to do is send me to councilling! How is councilling going to fix my vag!

I have read that a basic hormone blood test will not give a real reading if you have a hormone imbalance. I read you have to do a 24 hour hormone blood test and a saliva hormone test to show a real reading?

Any advice would be much much appreciated. I am going insane. Noone should have to go though this :'(

Thankyou,

I don't know if I have been tested for strep B or Ureaplasma. Isn't Ureaplasma an STD? I thought if it was the doctors would have checked me for that? I'm married and I made my husband go and get tested too and everything they tested him for came back negative.

No ureaplasma is NOT an STD! I got it and was NOT having sex.

Oh ok! Thankyou. I thought it was an STD. I will definitely be asking the new Gyno I'm seeing in a few weeks.

I've read some of your other posts and it looks like you have done your research and know your stuff Smile

The last doctor that did a biopsy held a magnifier over the area and said under the magnifier it looks like this inflammed 'rash' is covered in tiny little yellow-white dots. But only non-specific inflammation came back as a result.

Any ideas on what it could be?
