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 …

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 …

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 …

See my post - "what worked for me". Also, as you are 46 and had a hysterectomy it may be due to drop in oestrogen levels which causes the vaginal tissue to because less elastic, thinner, and more fragile and also causes reduction in you own natural lubrication. Oestrogen cream or pessaries is t he usual cure for this - it should return you vaginal tissue to its normal moisture, elasticity and toughness. If you cannot use oestrogen or it doesn't agree with you, there are several vaginal lubricants and moisturisers on the market that help the tissues return to normal, e.g. Yes water based lubricant, Sylk, Woohoo, Balance Activ Menopause, Pegaso IntiNorm, Lubrigyn Cream. Be sure to choose one that has natural ingredients and no chemical nasties. All those I have listed are natural and match vaginal PH, several contain hyaluronic acid which is the same chemical in your body that keeps cells moist. am in the process of going through these to find one that doesn't sting me - I have had vulvodynia for 2 years which has left the skin around my vaginal opening very sensitive to products. Now I have vaginal dryness due to menopause (dropping oestrogen levels), and want a nice natural vaginal moisturiser. All those products I have listed can be bought on Amazon, except Woohoo which is from Boots. Some are available on prescription (Yes, Sylk). My GP gave me hyalofemme which she said many find good, but it stung me (chemicals). You need to find what works for you and doesn't irritate. Try the oestrogen cream / pessary - these give some people sideveffects, which is why I am holding back from trying that unless all else fails.
