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 …

Curing the Incurable. VLSC now only have Vulvodynia but 75% improved

Post  BpCookie on Thu Mar 02, 2017 3:43 pm

Hello all my darling ladies, I was diagnosed with Vulva Lichen Simplex Chronicus over 5 yrs ago (I don't even keep count anymore). I was told that there was no cure for VLSC but it could be treated. All the treatments failed and year after year my pain got worse. I was stuck in bed most of the time, crying and just wanting to die. The burning pain was constant, I walked like I had just gotten off a horse because even my thighs rubbing together caused pain, I had to sleep lying on my back with my legs spread apart and I was constantly sitting on an ice pack. After years of failed treatments, appointments with different Dr.s and never ending research, I ran across a gynecologist who specialized in.........everything to do with the vagina. He wasn't afraid to treat my VLSC aggressively and he wasted no time in doing so. He did two surgeries, one was to clear out the Hymen Crucibles and the second surgery was to remove skin from the areas that were the most painful. Then he did painful alcohol injections to deaden the nerve endings and the last things he did was to put me on Lyrica. OMG!!! Girls, I feel like a normal woman now. I still have pain and I still have to take Lyrica twice a day but my pain has been cut down by 75%. Some days I don't have pain at all. Also, the last test they did came back NORMAL. My VLSC was GONE. I am now left with Vulvodynia but I can live with that since my pain level is so low now. I can even have sex now. I rub on some Lidocaine 5% which numbs the area and then I inject some KY Jelly into the vagina using a syringe to make sure I am good and lubed and *walla* I can have sex. My life is back girl!!!

My advice to you is to due research, never stop trying to find a Dr. who can help you, trust me, there is one out there some where you just have to them and try every treatment thats thrown at you.

You may want to try Lyrica and Lidocaine 5% ointment.

I wish you all the very best luck. Hang in there.

hugs
