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, …

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 …

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months.

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 …

Needing advice: V and UTI

Post  Antaea on Sat May 21, 2016 10:51 am

Hi Ladies, I need some advice:
I've got a cystitis as a side-effect of Gabapentin, which is, even on the lowest dose, helping so far. Any suggestions for what I can do until I see my doc on Thursday? I shall not stop with Neurontin because it helps really a lot. Unfortunately I do not tolerate Cranberry and other acid fluids, got much pain in all my lady parts after drinking even diluted orange juice. Now I only drink clear water all the time.
Some time ago, a doc said I shall take 3 Ibuprofen.1200 mg, a day against the infection and the pain. I'll try it during the week-end. But I would be glad for more suggestions conc. food which is not as acid that it worsens the v but so much that it defends the UTI.
Thanks a lot. Wishing you all an as painless day as possible.

Have you tried the powder supplement called D-Mannose? There are studies proving it's effect on UTIs caused by E coli bacteria (most common bacteria to cause UTIs), and two of my Naturopaths recommended it. I unfortunately got a hold of it only after my UTI was cleared. So I can't say for sure how well it would have worked for me.

I believe some health food stores sell it, or you can order it online. Here's a link that talks about it in more detail. I don't really agree with everything this website puts out, but it outlines how well D-mannose works pretty nicely.

Good luck!

Thank your for your advice. D-mannose is not available in Norway and cannot be imported,even there is one food-supplement on the market, but in a combination with cranberry-extract. Sad

Oh bummer...I hope you can find something else available in your area other than antibiotics.

A teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda mixed into a pint of water and drunk straight down 3-4 times a day will make the urine more alkaline which will ease pain and reduce the growth of more bacteria (they like an acid environment) which will just help with your symptoms until your appointment. It won't get rid of the infection though even if all the pain goes still get the antibiotics.
