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 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 …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

Severe pain after sitting??

Post  shope610 on Thu Apr 16, 2015 2:36 pm

Hello I have not been officially diagnosed but I have an appt with a specialist in August. Does anyone have pain and rawness after sitting for long or short periods of time? I cannot wear underwear and I have to sit on a donut at work and in the car. I cannot tell my boss or co workers what the real problem is so I told them that I hurt my tail bone. I have tried Premarin cream, evening primrose oil, steroid creams and sitz baths with little or no relief. I just joined this site so I am still reading about things that others have tried. Any suggestions would be great!!

amitriptyline worked for me

Post  Karen8 on Mon May 04, 2015 12:57 pm

That seems an awefully long time to wait for an appointment. When my vulvodynia was diagnosis in November 2013 I was prescribed 10mg Amitriptyline a day and within just a few days the pain was getting less. As I was still getting some discomfort the following February the dose was increased to 20mg a day to be taken before going to bed as it can make you drowsy.Since then I have hardly had any pain and am able to fully enjoy life.
Before I got my diagnosis I was surprised to find that paracetamol worked quite well.I was taking the full 8 paracetamol per 24 hours and was always looking forward to my next dose but at least I could have a more normal life. Once I got the amitriptyline I stopped taking paracetamole withinin a week. I think amitriptyline is quite cheap for the doctor to prescribe.

Hi!

Do you recall how this started? and which areas are affected?
I think you should try the natural remedies before jumping to medications if possible, which is what I am currently doing Smile

My symptoms were like yours - big trouble sitting. It's so embarrassing at work - I know what you are going through. I had my coworkers giving me so much advice about back pain, nonstop, that I finally broke down and said it's not my back! My immediate colleagues were all women, but it was still embarrassing. They finally shut about it when they figured out where my pain was!

Anyhow, I had to have extensive physiotherapy (19 sessions), and I follow a low oxalate diet. I hope you get some relief soon.
