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, …

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 …

Chiripractor and Actupuncture?

Post  sailor_moon on Sun Nov 15, 2015 12:43 am

Hi ladies,

My next step will be to try a Chiropractor as I have a bad back and when I had my laproscopy surgery they put my back out while moving me and the tingling nerve pain I have down one side of my crotch and butt cheek and thigh got so much worse. It makes me wonder if this is all a nerve issue nd I have a trapped nerve but I do not see how a nerve issue would cause my tissue to become inflammed and red?

I have also heard quite a few good reports about acupuncture being helpful too. Apparantly it helps "reprogramme" the nerve ending pathways.

Has anyone had any experience with either? I'd appreciate any advice.

I've been having acupuncture since last year. I think it does help somewhat and I think the effects build up over time. It's difficult to know though exactly what treatment is helping most when one is trying several different things at once like new drugs, diet etc.

Yes it does make it very difficult when you are trying so many things at once in a desperate attempt to be rid of this horrible condition.

I have to be on a specific diet anyway as I have Chronic gastritis ( similar to Chrones Disease).

I haven't tried Ami yet, if Chiropractor and acupuncture doesn't help then I feel that will be my only next option. Or my doctor might let me try injections. I'd rather have injections to taking oral meds to be honest, I'd rather have the pain of needles than have the awful dopey side effects and weight gain of Amitryptilene.

How exactly does the acupuncture work?

I'm not entirely sure how the acupuncture is supposed to work. I have both needles and electroacupuncture in each treatment session. I've had various different patterns of needles tried. Most recently, there seems to be a pattern where a couple of days after each session my pain starts to calm down and is then better for a couple of weeks before gradually worsening again until the next treatment. Which is what leads me to believe that the combination of needles/electrodes I'm having in recent treatments is helping somewhat. Aside from the very occasional small bruise, it's side effect free.
