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 …

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 …

put on another pill

Post  Sebby (Admin) on Sat Feb 27, 2010 8:50 pm

Finally got 2 c the gynaecologist I found understanding again. I will call him dr O. He put me on cerezette mini pill previously but I found it did not help the pain and made me very dry. He stil thinks its a hormone problem so has now put me on the combined pill. I'm not really sure if he is on the right track as in dr glazers book it does not seem 2 focus on oral hormone treatment. Anyway dr O said that if this doesn't work then he will refer me 2 the doctor who runs a specialist vulval clinic in my local hospital. So I guess I wait and see if the pill works. I still live in hope.

Hi Sebby,

Thanks for your reply to my other post. Im keen to get involved here, so I'll try and post as things change (or don't!).

With regards to your new pill, I'd be interested to know how this works out for you. Although I've not heard much to suggest a real link, I've sometimes wondered how contraception or hormonal intervention might affect vuvlodynia. I've got the Implanon implant (due for removal in July, although I think I'm going to have it removed sooner as my periods have been so irregular over the last few months).

I was finally prescribed the Amiltriptline only after I saw a specialist in Vulva disorders at the local hospital, and she did seem to be a lot more familiar with the condition than any of the other doctors I'd seen before that. Fingers crossed it seems to be helping so far.

Good luck with your new pill. Smile

Meg xx

Thanks for replying to my post. I will keep you updated on how it works. I have also been invited to a conference by Dr Glazer on Biofeedback treatment for vulvodynia on 8th March so will post on how that goes and what I learn. I just hope I understand it! good luck with your treatment. Sebby. Xxx
