Gabapentin Gel. or other topical creams

Thu May 10, 2018 9:43 am by Rosie21

Hi I have been suffering for some years with this abominable pain. I have tried most of the systemic drugs , I asked specialists and Doctors if I could at least try a topical treatment but because this requires a special prescription have been refused Has anybody had a chance of trying these? Thank you I will try to put a link on to some of the research into Gabapentin Gel. Thanks.

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

Condoms Less Painful?

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Hello everyone,

Many years ago i was struck with V, it was painful and got worst and worst, eventually i could not sit, could not stand, could not walk, could not swim in a swimming pool anymore. I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

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 …

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!
