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 …

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

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 …

Skirts & sundresses in nice weather, cuz you have to skip the hose/tights. Sometimes in cold weather I'll wear tights with a skirt until I get to someone's house and then I'll go to the bathroom and take them off and stuff them in my bag. Then put them on before I go outside again.

Skirts are obviously the most pain free option, though not always the most practical. For cold weather, I find Charnos modal tights to be the only ones I can stand to wear for any length of time. Also, Charnos do quite thick hold-ups in various colours. I have not previously been able to tolerate hold-ups, but find these quite comfy and the only thing that makes me feel remotely sexy or elegant. You can buy them on-line. Just Google 'Charnos'. For trousers, I find good old M & S to be the best place to shop. They do pull-on trousers in light, stretchy fabric (not the warmest, but you can wear leggings underneath). Mostly, they are not the most stylish and tend to sag at the knees after a while, but I find them comfy except on really bad days. I did find a rather more elegant pair in the per-una section. Obviously, it's best to get them a little on the large side. Recently, I bought a pair of what I can only describe as 'old women's' jeans. They are stretchy with an elasticated waist and far too big. Alone they look terrible, but with a long baggy shirt they actually look OK. The good thing is that the crotch is so low it doesn't touch me. Smile

Instead of tights in warmer weather you can wear hold up stockings under a skirt. Get a good pair of stockings tho from a good shop no cheap ones as they fall down
