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 …

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 …

How do you use lidocaine gel?

Post  lolainslacks on Wed Apr 27, 2011 8:41 pm

Sorry to be posting so much, I know I jusk asked a question about lidocaine gel, but I have another important one. How do you use it? I'm having a slight panic, becase I was looking up some info online and I saw a question on Yahoo Answers about using it during sex and there were a lot of people saying that you CANNOT put it inside the vagina. Is this true? Because my pain is not external, it is just inside the entrance, and that is where I need to apply the gel when I get it tomorrow. It didn't occur to me until now that you might only be supposed to use it externally.

Please can someone tell me it's okay to use internally? If not I am totally fucked.

Personally I didn't get on with it but there are lots of ladies on www.vulvarvestibulitisrelief.com who have used it and lots of them were advised to soak a cotton ball and insert it just inside the vaginal entrance so I think you'll be fine using it there. For VVS it goes around the vaginal opening before sex so I really don't see a problem at all.

Thank you. Since reading that info I've asked around and people are saying it's okay if it gets inide you. I just had a little panic because I thought I had completely misunderstood how to use it.

Re: How do you use lidocaine gel?

Post  noni on Mon May 23, 2011 11:49 pm

Hey lovely ladies,

I was prescibed Xylocaine (same thing as Lidocaine, I guess) but I do not have vulvar vestibulitis...instead, generalized dysesthetic vulvodynia. But anyways...Im scared to try it.

I have heard it can sting and reading here it seems only VV sufferers use it to numb the pain from sex (???) Still not sure.

What would be the advantage of putting this, down there? Isnt it only temporary anyways?

I'm not sure about the differences between what I suffer from and what you suffer from, and I'm not sure how my lidocaine differs from yours, so I can't say for certain, but I would definately recommend trying it at least. It stings a little at first, it's like a mild burning sensation, but it's really not that bad. And then after five minutes you should be numbed. Not completely though. For me, I'm not aware of feeling numb at all, but when I use my dilators or insert my fingers (both of which are usually agony) there is no burning or pain of any sort.

However, I know that my experiences with lidocaine do not match those of other women. For some women it makes the burning worse, and for some it does nothing at all. It depends on your individual body. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. Good luck.

I recently tried it during a flare up (wow I dont like the few minutes of burning!) but I didnt feel numb!

How much are you using? I think I didnt use enough. I just put it around the entrance. I only used about 2 centimetres of gel..prob not enough...Hmmmm ?? Rolling Eyes

Mine comes in an 11ml syringe, and I use half each time, sometimes more. I spend a minute rubbing it into the hard to reach 'crevices' where my pain is located, making sure everything is well coated. So basically I squirt most of it in/around the entrace, then push it where it needs to be. You do have to use a lot, I think.

The numbness isn't an obvious numbness, like the kind you feel after being at the dentist. For me it's just a relief of pain on contact. My vagina feels normal, but when I touch it there's no burning.
