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 …

New to forum, sadly not to vestibulitis. Questions about discharge!!

Post  marylynn on Sun May 10, 2015 2:38 pm

Hi everyone, new here. The gist of my story: A little over a year ago I took antibiotics after a routine surgery, developed a yeast infection (the first and only culture that tested positive!) and then basically never felt better. Last summer a treated with every -azole under the sun which did not help, lots of boric acid which did seem to help a little bit but never completely. I felt mostly better for a few months last fall, and was able to have and enjoy a sexual relationship with my boyfriend at the time.

I attributed all of this to a mystery yeast infection that could not be detected by culture, as I had not yet been diagnosed with vulvadynia. Last winter I felt the burning intensely again and after a series of negative cultures and switching doctors finally was diagnosed with vestibulitis and put on gabapentin. It's been 3 months now and the gabapentin has not helped really, and I generally avoid putting anything down there other than Monistat anti-chafing gel (it's a silicone lubricant, not an anti-fungal).

Hopefully you're still reading Smile My question for all of you is, what is the range of normal discharge that you've experienced? I sometimes have weird discharge that often it just really looks like a yeast infection (white, granular or chunky, NOT smooth) and sometimes I get this clear, thick and stretchy but dry discharge... almost like a solid "gak" or something.

Anyway, I'd love to get your feedback, or comments on how the hell you stayed sane when everything is telling you this is a yeast infection, but your doctors and tests are saying no.

Your problem with the discharge I tend to get to mines not just in the vestibule either, I had constant burning and pain from even underwear for months.
I have tried all of treatments ; acupuncture, physio downstairs,antibiotics, yeast creams/tablets ect my symptoms have eased but sometimes pop up I was taking orally gapabentin which idk if it helped it must have at the time but recently weaned off to see if the excruciating pain returned tbh it just come and goes.. Also made me gain weight and be so clumsy tripping ect.... Iv never had hormones checked? All stds,sti's,yeast,blood work and only thing came back inflammation but the Dr's didn't know where:/... I hope you get some relief soon it's a horrible thing to go through xxx
