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, …

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 …

My vulvodynia challenge

Post  Cbobro on Mon Mar 09, 2015 2:03 am

I was diagnosed with this condition a little under a year ago. I would be in and out of the doctor once a week, trying out different creams, antibiotics or pills that would take away the pain. I went to the gynecologist more than I have been to one my whole life. Every test they ran, would always come out negative. I felt alone and confused as to why this happened to me. I would be in unbearable pain everyday this past summer. I wasn't able to live the life that I wanted. I would constantly be annoying by crying about my pain to my friends all the time. I would feel bad and I would also feel alone because no one understood the amount of pain that I was actually in. Doctors would tell me that it's something to do with psychological issues but I truly don't believe that. I would be the happiest person on earth and still be in pain. But I would also be at my lowest points. I had depression over the summer where I wanted to just give up the fight and take the easy route out. I would cry to my mom every night begging for the pain to go away. Suddenly, after months of dealing with the torture, the pain began to go away, I was happy again and loving my life again. Until once again after 4 months I had a flare up. The burning pain was back, the discharge continued and the shooting pains got progressively worse. I figured that I've been through this challenge before and there's no way I'm letting it control me the way that it did before. I continue to have ice packs water bottles and anything cold between my legs to make the pain seem some what better. It's the biggest challenge I've had to over come but in the long run it has made me a hell of a fighter. I hope one day that the pain will vanish and I will be able to live the life with out pain, and I hope that all of you will continue to do the same thing!
-Chrissy (:

I hardly ever not feel this condition. It is depressing in a way, but I am trying to stay positive and know that my fertility and life means more than pumping myself with medications with no long term studies. Personal opinion. However, today and the past three days have been very trying.

Feel better.

I know it may seem like its the end of the world now, but I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. This condition can make anyone the strongest person if they persevere from it. I myself continue to start feeling the pain but I don't let it control my life anymore. There is hope, and you just have to believe that from now on!
