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 …

Hi there,

Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

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 …

spine fracture and pudental neuralgia

Post  sailor_moon on Mon Oct 31, 2016 10:02 am

Hi ladies,

Its been a long time since I have been on here. But I have some news for you all to share.

For those who have followed my story, you will know the 3 1/2 years of hell i have endured so far. for those who don't, feel free to go back through archives.

Anyway, I went and saw the only Pudental Nerve specialist in Australia. He sent me for a special Pudental Nerve MRI, which shows possible pudental nerve entrapment due to acute angulation at my s3-s4 sacral spine...the S3 S4 area are directly connected to your genital nerves! It showed on my MRI that i have had a fracture to this spinal area that was left untreated [despite me having constant falls and always having lower back pain, I always got ignored by doctors coz I was so young!], and the fracture has supposedly healed since but is angulated and causing likely entrapment of the pudental nerve.

Now unfortunately, I have already been rejected by one physio who rudely dismissed me almost instantly and put me in the too-hard basket, so I havnt had much help in my recovery. I see a new physio next week who will hopefully have a better attitude towards me than the previous cow I had to deal with.

At the end of next month the PN specialist is doing an injection of hyaluronic acid into the affected nerve, which is meant to help heal the nerve and help regenerate it.

Also looking into having acupuncture done as well, just need to find a good one who is willing to help me out!

Just letting everyone know where I'm at currently, and that if nothing else has worked for you, maybe pudental neuralgia could be the cause.

Who would have thought that a bad back could be the cause of your genital problems?

And another thing, please do not give up!!!!!!! If there is hope for me after 3 1/2 years ,I believe there is hope for all of us! Never give up, even if the odds are stacked against you.

Any advice would be much appreciated, and I would love to hear your thoughts and input.
