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 …

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

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 …

She definitely sounds worth a try, just be careful if you lack stability in the pelvis that she doesn't overlook that and give you only yoga moves which of course loosen things more. Her holistic approach sounds good though, I'd be tempted by someone with that kind of experience if we had anyone over here. Let us know how you get on if you go.

NEW LADY I AM THINKING OF SEEING

Post  ria on Tue May 24, 2011 11:32 am

Hi Claire,

Yes go if you can we all have to try as many different treatments as possible. I am a holistic therapist and I am open to everything, I get myself into such a mess thinking about medication as I really do not like taking tablets but as we know when the burning pain is sooooooo bad we will take anything. At the moment I have taken no medication for 2 weeks because I have had problems tolerating Nortriptyline and venlafaxine, my consultant wants me to try Gabapentin, but the side effects worry me and the weight gain. I keep them at the side of the bed just incase....

Good luck Claire its worth a try.

Thank you for your replies. I am just concerned about yet another practitioner. But a she said on her website she is used to seeing patients who had seen 10 people before her. I would love to go but hubby and I are struggling financially at the moment and to be honest he is tired of spending money on treatments and not getting a 'full' recovery. He thinks it should just be able to be fixed and can't understand why doctors are so behind with it all. Sad I need to wait until after 30th June anyway that's when my sick pay and holiday pay resets. Used everything up so far from last year.

Ria, appreciate your input, I don't like taking tablets either. Wondering about coming off the pill but we hate condoms, plus even non latex seems to cause me irritation!! will be asking my urogyne about options with less hormones when I go next week. Not looking forward to this cystoscopy. I bet it won't show anything just like every other test so far.

Just had to go on nizoral for yeast infection, again…and treating hubby as well. Thank god it has cleared up in 3 days. That pain was horrible on top of v. Feel for anyone of you ladies that struggle with yeast frequently.

Hope everyone is having a pain free day. Mine is, so far minimal today. Smile

I know exactly how you feel about seeing yet another person, I've been through countless physios, chiros, osteos, massage therapists, pilates teachers etc for my SI problems and never made much headway with any of them and last September just got to the point where I felt all physioed out and didn't replace my physio when she left the practice. I still don't have one for the SI problem, I'm hoping once I get back to the WH physio she'll help me deal with that too.
