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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

DR CRANDALL THEORY....YEAST THE CAUSE OF THIS CRAPPYNESS?!!!

Post  naomi on Fri Mar 11, 2011 1:18 pm

http://www.empowher.com/yeast-infection/content/dr-marjorie-crandall-yeast-infections-candida-allergy-and-vulvodynia

I propose that this residual inflammation can be due to yeasts remaining in vulvar and vaginal tissues.
[u]

I REALLY THINK THIS COULD BE A POSSIBLE CAUSE YET NO CONSULTANTS (GYNAE DERMS ETC) IN THE UK WILL SUPPORT ME IN THIS. YET ONE ALLERGIST WILL.

GUYS ITS WORTH A TRY, ITS A TEN STEP PROGRAMME AND MARJORIE IS V SUPPORTIVE. I CANT COPY YOU HER PROGRAMME AS ITS A HUGE DOCUMENT AND I WOULD ALSO GET DONE FOR COPYRIGHT STUFF BUT IF YOU WANT A COPY YOU CAN GET IT OFF HER WEBSITE XXXXX

Post  seagirl88 on Mon Mar 14, 2011 5:32 am

I ran across this website a couple of months ago and it's the only thing that seems to make sense. Her description of the "red" form of candida matches my symptoms almost completely, plus it accounts for the fact that many of us test negative for yeast infections (or that anti-fungals are not effective). Has anybody had any experience with this program?

yeh i have contact with marjorie, shes a lovely lady!

I have had to go down the NHS (national health service) in the UK as the NHS do not support this theory or have never even heard of it...obviously didnt cover that 30minutes on vulvodynia in their lectures at medical school Smile

I started a month ago on the candida diet so have cut lots of foods out (mainly the crappy, chemical/processed crap) and have lost weight (weight that i put on comfort eating from this). I havent got back onto the 10 step programme that Marjorie recommends as another doctor I have met is reading it at the moment still, im hoping she will prescribe me the antifungals etc.

Her pack is def recommended!! My Dad has bought about 4 copies and given it to various professionals....2 of which I know will use it as a door stop but hey hoe!

I'll copy my story to tell you how I got into this V mess xxx

The theory makes a lot sense to me, I was mystified when my doctor told me my problem wasn't thrush when I had exactly the same symptoms I always get from thrush. Also, drinking cinnamon tea (antibacterial/antifungal) helps my symptoms a lot, this wouldn't make any sense unless there was some kind of infection.
