Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

vaginal cream

Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:46 pm by LindafromNJ

I have been given ABC cream to start using for my condition. This is gabapentin, amitriptyline and baclofen cream. Has anyone tried this. Also has anyone used lidocaine. My doctor told me not to use it. It is so sore at the vaginal opening. Has anyone used it there. Please respond!!

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist

after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

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

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Vulvodynia and antihistamines

Post  Sherylvp on Sun Aug 24, 2014 12:48 pm

Hello, I have suffered with vulvodynia from the first time I had sex until the age I am now, 25. The pain ranged from a mild burning sensation to throbbing pain and bleeding. I found it particularly painful when my partner ejaculated inside me, and the stinging would continue for days afterwards. I was also very prone to cyctitis as a result of the swelling. Originally I thought that all women must be suffering during sex, but once I spoke to my friends I realised that this is not the case. I saw my doctor, who took swabs and examined me to find nothing. I asked the pharmacist for lidocaine ointment, which helped enormously but could still cause a little stinging. I saw a gaenocologist who offered only steroid cream to help with the pain but nothing more.

Finally, in July of this year my mother in law told me that she had seen an episode of embarrassing bodies on channel 4 (UK), where a lady with similar symptoms had been cured. She has a condition where her body produced too much histamine (an allergic reaction) to scratching and rubbing. This was particularly bad in her vagina. The solution was so simple - a standard hayfever one-a-day tablet every day. Within weeks she was cured. I was very skeptical, thinking that if it was so easier then why hadn't the gaenocologist suggested it? However I gave it a go. On holiday this year my partner suggested sex without the lidocaine and I reluctantly agreed. To my amazement there was no pain. The sex was as I imagined it should be for most women- comfortable, stimulating, arousing. We then had sex every day for the 10 days we were away and every time was the same - no pain even if i was not fully aroused.

If you are suffering like I was, I urge you to please, please try anti allergy medication - loratadine 10mg tablets (over the counter from most supermarkets, boots, pharmacies, ect) Clarityn brand name in the UK. These will do you no harm, even if they do not solve your personal vulval/vagina problems so it is surely worth a try.

Thank you

That would only work if you were infact allergic to something. Most women on here have problems way worse than allergies. But it can't hurt to try it. I just dont want someone thinking that its that easy to cure because typically it isn't.
