So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

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 …

Don't let Vulvodynia win. You are so much stronger than you realize!!!

Post  BpCookie on Sat Mar 11, 2017 5:11 am

Hello my darlings, I see so many of you who say things like "I feel worthless, I am useless, I am being punished for something I did, I just want to die, there is no hope...........". I want to tell you all that you are somebody special. You are precious. You did nothing wrong. There is hope and life is worth living. I know, I went through all of this, saying the same things, thinking the same things. I became angry at the world. I wanted to die. I would lay in bed and cry. But my depression, my hopelessness, my fears would turn into HOPE! I would spend hours on the computer trying to find a Dr., find meds., find any information that would help. I have had this for over 5 yrs, maybe over 6 yrs, I have lost count. But all that those hours, days, weeks, months of working to find a Dr. and answers paid off. Things are so much better for me now. I am not 100% better but most days I hardly have any pain. I do have my bad days, bad weeks but I know things will get better. Heck, I can even have sex now.

What ever you do, keep fighting. Don't give up. You can beat this thing. Don't let it win. Hold on to hope my darlings. Hold on tight.

Love to all of you

Thanks Cookie, I cried just reading your words! So happy it's working out for you finally, you deserve it so much. Are you in the U.K.? If so, do you mind me asking what doctor you were referred to? I'm currently in the middle of trying to find a good one!

Kezz, Hi hun. No I am not in the UK, so sorry. I am in Arizona in the U.S.A. The Dr. who helped me has retired from gynecology and is now working with mens health issues but he told me that if I ever needed his help, that he would make a special exception for me. Matter of fact I have an apt. to see him on April 5th because the Arizona heat is really causing me problems with my Vulvodynia.

I wish you all the best of luck.

Love to you

Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. I have def had those thoughts, especially being punished for past things I've done. So I appreciate it very much. I'm glad yours has gotten better and I hope your doc visit yields some good results in dealing with that Arizona heat. I love you

Hey! What were your symptoms with vulvodynia? I have severe burning some days, other days a stinging on my left side. I'm in alot of discomfort, and I just try to work through it. I'm on Amitriplyline 25 mg at night, and gabapentin 300 mg 3 x a day. I feel so tried and don't know about upping the dose. The sensations In my vagina are so weird and just stay there all day!
