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 …

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 …

Pain following a vaginal cyst procedure a year ago.

Pain following a vaginal cyst procedure a year ago.

Post  crackleberry on Sat Feb 11, 2017 11:22 pm

Hi everyone, I'm sorry this is going to be long, but please listen and help if you can. I am a 17 year old girl. In february of 2016 I had a mass protruding from my vagina, I went to the er, they didn't know what kind of cyst it was but they did an incision and drainage and put a word catheter in to help the cyst drain. During the procedure I had a sharp pain from where she cut me, but once it was over, the pain went away. When I got home I had green discharge, very very thick, almost like a booger, it was a small amount but still noticeable and I knew it had to do with the cyst. Everything was fine except for occasional discomfort now and then in the area where she cut me. About three months later though, I started experiencing pain in the exact area where she cut me and it hasn't gone away since. I still have the green discharge when the pain is really bad, and I have tried to get it cultured, but when I go to the gyno the discharge isn't there. I have been to so many doctors and they all say that because there isn't anything visually wrong with my vagina that means its in my head or I'm making it up. I feel like I am going crazy. I have severe anxiety attacks and can't do anything for days because of this pain and the worry that I'll always be in pain or that I will get another cyst and have to go through another procedure and be in pain 2x as bad. I'm severely depressed knowing that I can't masturbate or have sex and probably never will. At the end of december I tried to masturbate with my clit and then the whole right side of my vagina swelled up. There is now a tiny bump near the entrance of my vagina on the right side which scares me half to death. I have tried to get an mri of my vagina because I know something is wrong but the doctors say that because they can't see anything wrong they can't order and mri. My gyno told me to go to the er if the pain gets bad or it swells up again, but what are they going to do for me at er if not even a gyno can help me?!?! I don't want to go to a hospital and spread my legs for yet another doctor to tell me it looks fine and send me on my way. I can't deal with it anymore. Can anyone please give me some advice or guidance? It's been a year with the same green discharge and the pain only seems to be getting worse. I feel completely alone and scared in this. The pain is usually on the right side where I was cut at the er, but I also have been having pain on the left side as well. I really don't know if this is vulvodynia. It is vulvar pain, but the green discharge leads me to believe that there is an identifiable cause for my pain, but no doctor will listen or try to find a plan to help me. Maybe I'm just in denial, but I feel like there has to be a way to fix this. The pain recently moved up my labia and is closer to my clit now. I'm sorry if this is too weird or something, I just don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have never felt so alone in my life.
