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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

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 …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

Nortriptline vs amitriptyline

Post  yoginimom on Mon Nov 10, 2014 6:50 pm

I was reading in the 'V book' that nortriptyline has way less side effects than amitriptyline and just as effective. Does anyone have any experience with either of these drugs? What was your experience, did it work? side effects? Is it worth a try?

I am diagnosed with unprovoked V, (though i am much worse with provokation) and pudendel nerve irritation.

They first ruled out all STD's and infections and even though i test negative for yeast they still think i have it, so i'm on supressive treatment for that and i'm supposed to be taking the nortriptyline, but i haven't started it yet. Then the gyno did the q-tip test to diagnose generalized Vulvadynia. My gyno works with a pelvis floor PT who she referred me to, and she diagnosed the pudendal nerve irritation. Though according to the 'V book' those 2 diagnoses often go hand in hand. If you haven't read it yet i highly recommend it. My gyno recommended it and i have found it really informative. I think it's terrible that they don't help us get informed about what this is. I hope you find a treatment that works for you! Is the gabapentin all you have tried so far?

So far iv done acupuncture , physical therapy , yeast testaments , antibiotics , steroid creams , other creams now gapapentin. I am also back on to birth control cliest but i don't know if hormones are my problem. Physio thinks tight pelvic floor tight muscles irritation of nerves same with acupuncture ( stopped these two things a few months ago) and my doctor agrees nerve related. Gabapebtin is helping makes me so hungry !!! Althowe weather it helps with sexual intercourse still yet to find out moved up too 4x100 a day.

Iv only read "why Sex hurts" it gave me a great idea of reasons and things to further ask my doctor . They suggested a pain clinic if gabapebtin failed ? Well the specialist suggested my doctors are very stingey with referrals lol !!! Are u feeling better yourself xxz
