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 …

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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

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 …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Does Vulvodynia affect your sexual partner?

Post  rmb on Tue Mar 28, 2017 10:27 pm

I have been dealing with this for 10+ years. I am almost 26 and this started when I was 15. I have constant burning feeling in my vulva area, sometimes things make it worse but it is always there. Rain or shine. I am being told I have Vulvodynia....the only thing that is keeping me from accepting this is that my boyfriend complains about his urethra being irritated feeling after having sex with me and he's not the first boyfriend to complain about this. I have been tested for every possible thing out there and everything comes back as fine. Has anyone else had sexual partners complain about this?

Tenderness?

Post  amyhp on Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:34 pm

Do you have constant pain and tenderness or just constant burning? I am so sorry you have suffered with this for so long Sad
My husband has never mentioned having urethra pain after sex.

Burning

Post  rmb on Thu Apr 13, 2017 8:38 pm

Basically just constant burning Sad and knowing that its affecting my boyfriend is killing me...It's one thing that I have deal with this discomfort on a daily basis but knowing that I'm passing it on makes me feel like I can never have a normal relationship or kids or anything...I just feel like my life is passing me by and I can't even enjoy it

I understand

Post  amyhp on Fri Apr 14, 2017 4:03 pm

I completely understand. I am 25 years old and married. The pain stared for me when I was 20 after 6 months of being on the birth control pill and 2 months after marriage. I feel horrible for how this impacts my husband's life, but he stands by me and NEVER complains. If you ever want to talk you can private message me. <3

Also, if your burning is caused by vulvodynia there is no way that the burning could be passed to your partner. So no need to worry about that!!

Post  rmb on Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:14 pm

Yes, that's why I wanted to reach out to other's who have been diagnosed with Vuvlodynia...It's like having chronic pain in your shoulder just because your shoulder touches someone else's shoulder doesn't mean that they're going to start having shoulder pain...that might be a bad example but that is my point, it's like doctor's don't want to listen to me whatever I have it's affecting my partners too over the years it's been about 5 boyfriends that complain after having sex with me... and my most recent gyno I was telling her that my boyfriend is complaining about having a burning or irritation feeling in his urethra after sex and even days later and she said well maybe something is wrong with him and that she doesn't specialize in guys...it's so frustrating he was fine before he started having sex with me there was nothing wrong with him I know it's because of me

Strep B

Post  amyhp on Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:18 pm

Have you been tested for Strep B? Sometimes this can be a cause for burning, but it is not a test that is regularly ran.
