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 …

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.

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 …

one simple tool that surely helps

Post  EverythingIsDifferentNow on Sun Oct 26, 2014 4:33 pm

For vulvodynia, there are good and bad days. Today is a bad day. I woke up and felt the discomfort right away "down there" and sat on the toilet for little more than hour. The acidic feeling did not go away so I went to the shower and laid on the floor, soaking myself in the hot water. It helped, but what really helps is getting out of the shower and sitting on my bed and putting my heating pad where my belly is, right above my groin area. It really does help and I urge all of you to buy a heating pad (you can buy it online if you're too uncomfortable to go out and buy it - like me) and it may help you significantly. Either that, or try a ice-pack and wrap it in a towel or cloth and place it where you feel discomfort. That is all I can offer you, but I want to share a slice of hope with you guys today on this lovely Sunday day. Moved by all the hopeless women suffering with this TERRIBLE illness that is probably directly linked to Satan I am never going to forget this phase in my life, because I am surely going to find a cure one way or another. When I'm older and an adult (i'm only 16), I'm going to donate more than a million dollars to a research facility that focuses on vulvodynia and make sure they find a cure for all you women. Never give up, I believe this illness, despite its HUGE inconvenience and discomfort, has happened to us for a reason. At least I hope so. It teaches us to be more grateful for life and its simple pleasures, like jeans and going out without feeling uncomfortable, and it will make us feel more alive when we find a CURE (because I know we ALL can find a cure, there is HOPE!!) than if we had never experienced this condition. Never give up xxx (ever)
P.S. Have a good day, or at least, try to be positive sunny
