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

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

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 …

New here - Questions

Post  syeraa on Fri Oct 09, 2015 4:50 pm

Hello ladies ! Well, an acquaintance of mine oriented me to this site, and I'm very glad I found it.
I am questioning myself as far as if I may have vulvodynia, and maybe you guys can help me. I know you're not doctors, and therefore can'T give me a diagnosis but you might be able to help regardless.

A few weeks ago, I started having burning sensations after sex. I thought at first it was yeast, so I bought the oral one dose tablet, and called it a day. The problem is, when I had sex again, OMG, it burned so much during sex and after, it was even worse. It burns in the whole vulva, it is swollen, and it burns all the way to inside the vagina. No problem having sex though it gets very uncomfortable. After, when I pee, it's like someone is pouring acid out of me. It is excruciating. I still had some discharges, so I decided to buy the local cream treatment, as I thought it still may be yeast. The burning calmed down, and I thought it was all good. So this morning, I had sex again. And the crazy pain came back. Now, I no longer have discharges, but my whole vulva is so red and sore and swollen and I'm burning inside and when I pee. It didn't hurt THAT much during sex but definitely was way uncomfortable and wanted him to finish. I saw 2 doctors, and none of them were able to help me.

I would like to have you ladies's input.

Thanks in advance !

Hi there,

Welcome to the forum! There are lots of lovely ladies on here to offer advice, wish it was more active though.

When you treated yourself for thrush did the symptoms completely go away until the next time you had sex? Or did you still experience symptoms?

Also, what did your discharge look like?Thick,watery,white,clear,yellow, sticky?

Have you had a urine sample checked for infection?

Hi ! Sorry for the delay ! No, when I got treated for thrush, the symptoms didn't go away. I no longer have discharges, just pain with intercourse. They were more like residues than discharges, but I remember having that while having thrush in the past. They were white and sometimes greyish. I also have Lichen Sclerosis, which can provoke symptoms, but never inside the vagina. So, sexwise, what happens in more details is...at the beginning it's ok, but after a while, it starts burning inside, and when he finishes, it burns outside too, and hurts to pee -__-. I also noticed some incomfort with tampons, and a slight burning sensation, even when I don't have sex for a week or 2. I've had plenty of UTI's and thrush infections, and it is nothing like that. I had sex yesterday after 3 weeks of abstinence yesterday, and the same thing happened. It was enjoyable at first, and then started to get uncomfortable. The pain is worse after though. It's like all of my vagina swells and I can't pee right after. Then, it gets progressively better until say 24 hours later, and almost no pain left... Saw a obgyn and she treated me for thrush AGAIN. I mean... Ugh. Can anyone provide advice ? Thanks in advance Smile

I'm not a doctor, but urethral inflammation could be a possibility given the difficulty in urinating. Do you think maybe what you're perceiving as vaginal pain could be urethral? Everything is close together down there. I know I sometimes have difficulty pinpointing the source of my pain.

You mean a UTI ? I've had plenty and none provoked that kind of pain. Pain is inside the vagina and also all over the vulva; it becomes swollen, very red and raw after sex. No UTI has ever given me those symptoms. I wish that's what it was though. I wish it's something else that's curable... :/

You're right, a UTI would not likely cause swelling and redness to the vulva. I just mentioned it as my physio/PT said she thought I had urethral inflammation after an examination, but I had no infection there at the time. So it is possible to have inflammation without an active infection. Sorry I can't be more help.
