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 …

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. 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 …

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 …

Getting broody

Post  Sebby (Admin) on Sat Nov 05, 2016 2:24 pm

Hi all,

I have become very broody for a baby for the first time! I am 35! I guess dealing with pain and bouts of severe depression just put me off the whole thing but now much to my hubby's surprise I am clucking away!

I no longer have constant pain now, thank god but I don't know why it went? sometimes having this condition makes me feel like is all magic and curses rather than medicine, it is so confusing.

Anyway I have been working with dilators and pelvic floor release techniques and sometimes I can manage penetration.

I am getting there slowly but surely but I am probably more scared of giving birth! anyway we are actually going to try in the new year. This is the first time I would have actually tried and stopped using birth control (mostly birth control has been just not having sex! for the majority of my life) but I am on the mini pill which has helped so much with period pain and pms so I am also nervous coming off it.

Anyway just thought I would update you guys

take care

Fingers crossed that you conceive quickly Smile My husband and I are also TTC (I'm a similar age to you). I don't even think about giving birth as I figure there's no point worrying about that unless I manage to conceive and if I do get pregnant then I'll worry about labour and birth much nearer the time! One tip: if you haven't succeeded after six months then don't delay in asking the GP for fertility checks for both of you (or get them done privately if you can afford it). It's best to know ASAP if you might have additional challenges to overcome. Good luck!

Wow its great to know a fellow sufferer who is my age is also TTC!

I hope you too conceive quickly!

You have a great attitude to the whole giving birth thing, I have been almost phobic of it for years but the broodiness has taken over the fear in the last few months!

I am going to stop my pill after the current packet in 3 weeks. Its a progesterone only and I haven't had a period for the year I have been on it which has been wonderful! so I am not looking forward to the whole period thing again ugh!

A bit worried over flare ups and hormones and stuff but I guess I to had better deal with it when it happens.

Keep me updated! and yes I will certainly ask for tests after 6 months, I know they say a year usually but at 35 I think you can request earlier.

Good luck!!

Hi Sebby,

I've just seen your post. Sorry I'm so slow but don't get the chance to come onto this site often.

Congratulations on your decision! Being a parent is amazing, it really changes your life and you look at everything differently because of it. I think you deserve this hugely, having done so much for so many people on this forum.

You wrote 'sometimes I can manage penetration'. This makes me think conceiving that way could be painful for you and maybe difficult. Have you discussed this with your doctor? He/she should be able to refer you to the assisted conception clinic at your local hospital. They'll start out with the usual 'try conceiving naturally for x months then come back to us'. But if you have a lengthy set of medical records showing vulvodynia they should accept you can't realistically conceive that way and so put you on the programme for their help. If they try to put you off ask if they have a committee that can consider it and get your GP to write a report. We went down that route and got their agreement.

Good luck!

Mark
