So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of 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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

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 …

narcotics for pain

Post  meelie on Sun Jul 26, 2015 3:15 pm

Has anyone with this horrible condition ever been given Percocet or some other narcotic for, say, back pain or surgery and found it that helps?  I had back surgery Dec.31, and was on Percocet for the pain. My V disappeared while on it. I figured it out and figured I didn't really need to take it so often cause my back pain was less and less so I held off on the Percocent and started taking only when the V got so bad I was starting to be the daily bitch to my husband. I can just about tolerate anything except this damn V. I am a monster to be around when I am burning. So, I've been taking just one 5mg a day when it gets to really burning and it takes it away sometimes for the rest of the day sometimes just until around bed time depending on how active I am. I going to run out soon and I am terrified that I won't be able to talk my regular dr. into giving me a Rx. for them. I know they are addictive. I also know I am 68 and I had rather die now than continue to live with this pain that destroys any happiness left in my very boring not happy life. Was wondering if anyone else has tried narcotics. Life here on earth just isn't worth living when you are miserable.

I take tramadol every day. I was started on it for back pain so already on it when my pelvic area pain started. It takes the edge off the pain for me, but certainly doesn't get rid of it. I do sometimes wonder if I took the maximum daily dose if my pain would go completely, but I know I could then develop an addiction problem. My doctors prefer me to keep trying all the various antidepressants/anticonvulsants to see if eventualy one of them will work.

Trammadol is less addictive than Percocet. I have taken 100 mg of it and it really helped. I'd rather be addicted than live like this. I am going to tell my dr. to imagine his penis and scrotum being covered with acid all day when he's trying to help other people, just imagine and ask him what he would do. Anyone who has not experienced this shit has NO NO NO idea what it is like to live with. Twisted Evil
