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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

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. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

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 …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

Advice: vestibulitis + compound cream

Post  hopeful819 on Sun May 22, 2016 4:58 am

Hi there! 18 year old recently diagnosed with both vestibulitis and generalized vulvodynia. I'm supposed to apply a compound cream (amitriptyline/baclofen/gabapentin) twice a day, but the process of touching and applying it around the vestibule area is extremely painful and debilitating. Has anyone had a similar situation or found a way around this with topical treatments? Would it be significantly less effective if I applied it around the general vulva area but not the vestibule? Thank you so much!

Unfortunately the cream should really be applied on the area causing you pain. I personally found applying cream with a Q-tip (instead of my finger) caused me less discomfort because I had better control of the areas that were touched.

I hope this treatment works for you!

It may be a case of putting up with the added discomfort in the short term in order to see an improvement as the cream starts to work. Hopefully as the cream starts to work, you won't have so much pain applying it because the nerves will have calmed down. If it persistently just makes you feel worse though I'd get in touch with the prescriber and see what they can suggest. Maybe give it a couple of weeks and see how it goes. It can be similar with oral medication; the first week or two can make one feel even worse because there can be side effects without improvement. But as the drugs start to work and the body adjusts, the side effects go and the pain starts to ease. At least in theory. I hope you soon see some benefit.

PainBlogger - My specialist keeps referring to what you're talking about as "therapeutic discomfort". I want to slap him every time he says it Rolling Eyes

I know I have to power through it, but does he really have to give this added pain its own name Wink

Despite a medical background I've never heard that precise term. It is nicely succinct though!
