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, …

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 …

Anyone else get this from yeast infections? (new member)

Post  jungleclover on Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:37 pm

Year 1: So I immediately started getting yeast infections after I started having sex 3 years ago. Every time my boyfriend would ejaculate inside of me (he has a vasectomy) I would get yeast and it was terrible. Because I was in college and there were no Kaisers up in my college town I saw random doctors at clinics and I saw them at the school clinic. After a year I finally realized this whole thing was tied to the sex and we have been either using condoms or pulling out ever since which has been really helpful for me. I think it is possible I have a semen allergy. It certainly is very irritating to me vaginally.

Year 2:
But after a year of probably at least 9-10 infections, it was too late and I started having symptoms of vulvodynia. I was put on an antidepressant in September but it did nothing to help. I was stuck wearing cotton underwear all of the time and I itched all of the time (no pain yet). Around December I decided to try the smart idea of wearing a tampon. I was always a tampon girl and I still mourn the loss of tampons. So I accidentally fell asleep with it in and the next morning I woke up with the most UNHOLY PAIN. Went to the dr christmas eve and they said I had a yeast infection but this was different. It BURNED and itched. This burning and itching would last for the next 4-5 month. I got a C in my neuroscience class because I couldn't pay attention. Everyday walking back to my car from school I would try to hide my sobs and as soon as I got home I would ice for the next 1-2 hours. Eventually, they found out I had a UTI (I kept getting tested for one but they came back negative and I kept seeing new drs). I got antibitotics and felt better immediately.

For the next year, I got off pretty much scott free. I wore synthetic thongs, tight jeans, wet bathing suits. I had so much sex. I WAS ALIVE. My boyfriend was pulling out and everything seemed great. I thought I just had a semen allergy and everything was fine.

Year 3: One terrible January day I got lazy and did not pee within 15 minutes after sex. The next morning I woke up and I had a yeast infection again. But I've graduated college. I'm closer to drs. I thought this would be different. I would get treated and it would be ok. It was not ok. I'm not sure when I finally got the yeast to go away or when the vulvodynia started but it's been 6 months and I am in so much pain. And I itch all of the time. I am afraid I won't be able to keep my job. Last night I woke up at 3AM and never went back to sleep it hurts so bad.

I've probably seen over 30 different doctors over the course of this ordeal. maybe more honestly. I know the entire gynecology department at my kaiser. I have an appointment with a specilist in 6 weeks in Portland and I start PT in 2. I am so terrified. This is the worst thing in the world I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Even tasks like talking out the trash or walking through the grocery store seem like a marathon.
------

Can I just say this is so isolating and miserable. No one else has this problem and since I alientated all of my friends in college by refusing to go out and choosing to stay inside and ice my junk all day I have no one to talk it over with. I'm in pain, I'm lonely, and I don't know how I'll keep my job and pay bills. Worst yet I don't know when/if I'll get better. I could feel this way forever and I'm in my early 20's. This is such a raw deal.


Also does anyone else have a side of itching with their pain? For me it's always been more of an itching problem alouth I have had my fair share of pain too.
