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 …

I just diagnosed myself and SO happy I found this forum!!!!

Post  Mamamontez on Thu Mar 12, 2015 5:31 am

Hi! Wanted to vent and get some input because I think I just diagnosed myself with Vulvodynia. My pain started 10 months ago and it came out of nowhere. At first I thought I was experiencing a UTI because that was the only thing I can compare it to. I went to the doctor and she prescribed me some antibiotics for my "Uti" but once I was done with the medication, the pain was still there. I thought this was odd. It felt like a constant, burning, raw, dull pain that came and went in waves. A few weeks later I went to my doctor and told her the pain was still there. She did a Pap smear and I had an ultrasound done to check my cervix, ovaries, uterus etc and everything came back normal. She had no idea what this pain could be so she referred me to a Urologist. The urologist performed several test including swiping cells from my urethra, checked my bladder. All of her tests came back normal. 10 months later im experieing this dull pain almost everyday and it comes and goes in waves. I went back to my doctor yesterday and cried to her. I broke down. I told her if this pain that I'm feeling isn't killing physically (because at times it feels like it is) it's sure as heck going to me mentally! My husband and I have been trying to conceive baby #2 since October and we haven't had any luck. We got pregnant so easily, one time, with my son back before this pain even started. my doctor prescribed me Nortriptyline (a 10 MG starter pack) She said this medicine helps with nerve pain and she wants to see if it could help. I can't wait to email her tomorrow and inform her of what I discovered!!!

I was diagnosed through a biopsy. Unfortunately, this condition is not exactly curable. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. Today my pain was quite unbearable. Hope you get some relief soon.

Now that I have a name for it, I emailed my dOctor and told her what I diagnosed and she agreed that she thinks it's Vulvodynia even though she was completely clueless before! She referred me to OBGYN and I actually have an appointment with a Pelvic Pain clinic near my home that specializes and cures Vulvodynia! I'm on my 4th day of Nortriptyline and have been applying coconut water and lavender essential oil on my vulva area and have had a lot of relief! So happy to finally see a light at the end of a long, dark tunnel!
