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 …

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 …

Pain only on the left side of vulva but doesn't seem to pudendal neuralgia

Pain only on the left side of vulva but doesn't seem to pudendal neuralgia

Post  Theresa1987 on Tue Jul 12, 2016 8:31 pm

Hi all,

I've had vulvodynia for 5 years. Long story short it seems it was probably kicked off by going on the pill. Tried many treatments with no real results or I seem to get better but then the pain changes.

I found physio therapy really helpful for my vaginismus but for the last two years or so my pain is only on the left side. It hurts at the spot at 4 O'clock and then will burn in a line down on the inside of the butt cheek. It use to hurt onto the clit but now that's stopped. The pain is getting more unpredictable and worse as time goes on.

Anyone experienced anything similar? Any advice? I've tried all the usual things, botox, physio, amitriptiline, gabapentin, cymbalta, chriopractor, dillators... I've wondered if it;s hormones but I use all the compounded hormone creams and they don't seem to make a difference. Haven't tried the nerve block or surgery.

Hi Theresa1987,

I'm sorry to hear that you've been dealing with this crappy condition for so long.

Like you, my pain has varied throughout my 2+ year battle with this condition. Right now my largest complaint is only on my left side near the bottom inbetween my labia minora and majora. It mostly feels like a really sore bruise, but it can feel like burning, throbbing, prickling, and stinging (no shooting pain down my butt though). Although it is at its worst when touched, it can act up without provocation.

Sounds like you have certainly tried the most common treatments. The hormones you were on, were they bioidentical hormones? I've read that can sometimes make a difference as to whether or not someone responds to hormone therapy.

Hi there. My pain is also now only on the left side of my vulva and labia. It was originally on both sides and up to my clitoris too. You've tried more things than I have! However, for me I've found slow (very slow) progress with physio (womens health internal physio and also osteopathy). I have definitely had set backs. Experiencing one now! However, overall I feel some small improvement over time. I'm so sorry you've had this for 5 years. How long did you have physio for? I do have suspected pudendal nerve irritation which is supposedly settling but can still be firing off for some time apparently.

surgery.

Can you ask for a MRI? I had the similar sistuation and when the doctor did MRI they found out my bartholin cyst was hidden deep under the tissue. I had it removed, it helped with the pain. Before the pain can come all the way up and down to the buttlock, but somehome I still itch constantly at the area. Still dealing with it... Sad
