Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Transversus Abs and Pelvic Floor

Post  Sarah001 on Tue May 10, 2011 6:38 pm

The co-contraction between the pelvic floor and Transversus Abs keeps cropping up in conversation and I know I personally would like to know how to avoid the pelvic floor while strengthening the much needed (in my case anyway) TA so after mulling it over for months and discussing it here and elsewhere with no firm answer I have emailed Isa Herrera at her PT clinic and will post what she says as soon as she gets back to me, let's have this sorted out once and for all!

Re: Transversus Abs and Pelvic Floor

Post  Sarah001 on Tue May 17, 2011 10:36 am

I'm desperate to know how to do this but a week later and Isa herrera hasn't answered me yet. I know the email reached her clinic as I received a confirmation email from someone there who said he would forward the email onto Isa so I've sent him another email just asking if Isa has read it yet. I also tried to find an email address for Amy Stein to ask her the same thing but can't find an email address anywhere for her so that didn't work out. I can't think of anyone else to ask. I'll let you know if Isa does answer at any point. On a birth site I found an article saying pregnant women should learn to tighten the TrA and relax the pelvic floor to help with pushing but again it didn't say exactly how to do this! Just a few hints would be helpful.....

Well it's nearly a month now since I emailed Isa Herrera and despite me chasing it up and being told by her assistant my query would be read that day (couple of weeks ago) and he'd make sure it went on top of the pile of mail for her she still hasn't answered so it doesn't look like she will. Anyone else who also would like to know the answer to this, feel free to email her, maybe she'll reply if enough of us ask the question.

I'm still trying to get the hang of this, I usually do it wrong and end up with pelvic floor contraction too which leaves me with worse symptoms for the rest of the day but have managed it about 3 times in total. I can't do the contraction followed by pelvic floor drop or I let go of the TrAb contraction too so I'm having to try and learn to do it without any PF right from the word go but I'm finding it very difficult!
