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 …

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 …

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— im new here. Im incredibly desperate so if anyone has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it. Im a 20 year old female with vulvodynia and vaginismus. I was on the birth control pill (junel fe lo estrin) from age 13-18 because of severe menstrual pain. I used the xulane patch for a few months when i was 18 but eventually stopped BC altogether because it interferes with my med for …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

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 …

Ipl/lazer hair removal bikin line

Post  Mary1000 on Sat Nov 15, 2014 6:58 pm

Hiya,

Was wondering if anyone has ever had ipl/lazer hair removal on their bikini line before?

Or if you know if it would effect my vulvadynia.

I'm not in acute stage of it like I was last year. The constant pain stopped from seeing a physio and many other things like coconut oil.also breaking up with my boyfriend so not having sex which caused a lot of emotions as wasn't able too. Still have slight pain when it becomes irritated from urine. But nothing like before. And still can't go swimming. If the outer labia has hair removed could it cause my inner vulva pain to worsen? I wanted to get it all removed around that area.

Thanks for any responses received.

Never wrote on a forum before but read everyone on the internet when I was first diagnosed and am always great full for them.

Also just wanted to say it took 10 years for me to be properly diagnosed but I am now coming out of the other side and sometimes I forget it's even there. Some days not. May change again if I get a boyfriend and am slightly scared it will come back full power then. But hopefully will feel more confident if my hair removal is fixed.

Please don't loose hope. It can and will get better. X

Hi Mary! Good timing I've just started IPL and have been wondering the same thing for ages and then just decided to take the plunge! My pain is only where I have pubic hair... It's like the pubic hair is the trigger and the hair follicles are over senstive. Neuro meds not helping so I figure if I get rid of the hair, I won't feel the pain (sounds too easy doesn't it...?)

Anyway. Gynae seemed to think it would be worth the risk and shouldn't make the pain worse and it's been fine so far! Only had one session though, but it certainly didn't hurt any more than waxing etc.

I had a Hollywood, but if you're worried maybe start with an extended bikini?

Hi Georgia,

Thank you so so much for your reply and advice.

Glad to hear you didn't have any issues with it.

Totally feel for you and how annoying to have pain on the actual hair.

Hope it's gets better for you and all your hair never grows back.

Thanks again Smile x

Hi Mary, I'm new to this forum and have just come across your post.
I am a vulvodynia sufferer of over 2 and a half years and I can honestly say that IPL has not aggravated my vulvodynia at all.
I would say go for it!
