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 …

Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:44 pm by JGD13

He said this is …

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

-washed with warm water
-applied manuka honey to the area
-ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

As of now I am …

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 …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Advice on taking Amitryptiline

Post  sailor_moon on Sat Dec 12, 2015 12:27 am

So, I have finally given in and started taking Ami 10mg for the past 3 days. Can anyone please tell me how long it takes before you see any result with it?

I had sex this morning and I have that raw sore feeling along with itching. Not severe, but enough to make me uncomfortable enough to not want to leave the house.

Has anyone with inflammation and redness in the area had any success with this?

Also, will this dose make me put on weight? And how much of a dose do you have to be on to get fat? Im struggling to stay in a healthy weight range as it is being unable to exercise due to the discomfort.

I'd say you need to give it 4 - 8 weeks before you can make any firm conclusions, though hopefully you'll see a benefit before then. I did put on a little weight on amitriptyline (went up to 30mg), but I was on pregabalin at the same time and both are known to cause weight gain. My guess is the weight gain was more due to the 450mg/day of pregabalin. I'm not sure exactly how much weight, but it *wasn't* enough to put me up a clothes size - maybe half a stone?

As for redness and inflammation - I don't have that, so I can't advise on that, but hopefully the above is of some help. Good luck with it.

Thanks for your reply Painblogger. I was on 300mg Pregabalin and I only put on 2 kgs in the 6 months I was on it. But it did absolutely nothing for me pain wise either.

Currently had 3 sessions with a chiropractor and my symptoms haven't been as severe. It takes 6 to 8 sessions they say before you get any real result so I'll keep up with it as my back is bad anyway!

Did you find ami made a significant difference on its own or did you have to combine Pregabalin with it to get any form of result?

I didn't have any weight gain on nortriptyline which is I think the same type of drug or at least very smiliar. Stay on it if you can 2-3 months to see if it helps. Lots of people find it does. I didn't but that's just me. I'm having physio with an osteopath and I would say, physio may cause flares but don't be disheartened if it does. For me, ultimately I think I'm seeing a very gradual improvement overall in my symptoms. I occasionally have a tickle rather than an itch, which I think is nerve related, as well as constant pain and a raw sore feeling that goes up and down in intensity.
