So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

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

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

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 …

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 …

UPDATE: ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY

Post  MLily92 on Thu Nov 06, 2014 11:52 pm

After going to the physiotherapist a couple of times and going to a specialist it has been confirmed I have some sort of nerve damage or slight entrapment in my lower back from a previous injury. I didn't have to do much to inflame it but thats were the pain is suspected to come form.

The tingling in my vulva area and urethra has dampened considerably over the last two weeks. I go to the toilet a normal amount of times, I get up maybe once a night, twice on a bad night.

The physiotherapist and vulva specialist said that in time the pain will go and my pelvic floor muscles will release and relax.

My treatment so far;
- Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy (Once a week or once a fortnight - teaching myself to release pelvic floor muscles again and stretching).
- Ultrasound (Once or twice a week - deep heats allows blood flow and muscles to relax more/less spasms).
- Amitytripline (ENDEMP) (Started on this again for six weeks, then continue for 3 months if effective to stop pain cycle)
- Stretching and relaxing exercises once a day
- Hot water bottle applied to area and muscles as much as possible through out the day to help relax muscles.

I'm also considering complimentary therapies e.g. massage and acupuncture and possible chiropractor.

Oh wow thats crazy! Who would have thought? Glad to hear you got some treatment and results! Smile did you end up seeing a vulva specialist in Newy?

I hope it all works for you! I have heard a few stories like this!

 If it does and I don't see success, can you give me your specialists name and info? 

Let me know how the Endep goes too. Apparantly it can really knock you out and make you super drowsy the first few weeks.

I pray you have found the right treatment.  Keep us updated on how it is going! ☺️

Yeah I know write, its been really good the last couple of days, had a bit of trouble today but I think I'm on the mend thank god.

Yes, I did end up paying to go to the private specialist and she agreed with the physio, however I'm still keeping my appointment for the John Hunter just in case it doesn't clear up by then (thats in Feb).

The first time I tried Endemp I was on a higher dose 20mg and that really smacked me out at night. But I'm on 10mg this time round and I haven't had any side effects at all. I'll up it if I think I need to but I'm going to wait a couple of weeks first.
