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

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 …

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 …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

here is a crazy question

Post  sleeplessnights on Tue Jun 07, 2011 5:44 am

Ok so I notice now for a while what part hurts the most for me down there....my labia minor hangs down past my major labia and is being rub to pieces...Ok here is the crazy thought...what if I had this part of my minor labia trim off so it would not stick out and be the culprit....It seems that if I could stick my finger and tuck everything inside it feels a lot bettte but as you ladies knows, the bits sneaks out and gets rubs to hell and back again...
Do I make a bit of sense here...I was going to ask my gyno for a plastic referall for this Embarassed

It's a common finding and I suspect the reason you find it so painful is because you have V, women without don't notice it. I really wouldn't have surgery if I was you, you might set off the nerves even worse and make your problem a whole lot worse than it already is. Plus it may not make any difference to your pain and you'll have gone through all that surgery for nothing. Up to you but that's my opinion.

Here is a crazy question

Post  ria on Tue Jun 07, 2011 2:43 pm

I had this problem walking was sooooooooo painful and annoying. Olive oil first thing in the morning rub all over the vulva and then do it again before bed time it worked for me it nourishes the skin. My vulva skin was red raw swollen and the doctors kept giving me yeast creams which irritated the skin even more. My advice is dont put anything on the skin that you cannot eat so avoid anything not pure.

Its the nerves not the skin I have only got this into my head I thought it was the skin but when the nerves settle you will not
have as much discomfort with the rubbing. We have to get the nerves to stop firing up we want them to sleep and stop causing pain.

Hope this helps

Ria

I need to agree w/ both ladies. It has got to be the nerves and sore skin that cause pain and not because your labia minor is hanging lower. You still have your underwear to hold back your labia from hitting your pants. You probably just notice it because of the pain. I am much more aware of my lady parts because of this disorder. I would not resort to surgery. I agree that you may be wrong and it could make it far worse.

Hi there

I would NOT go for any type of surgery for this. I dont care about all those things out there on the internet. It sounds ridiculous and scary !!!!

Sleeplessnights: This condition just makes you very aware of your lady parts. There is nothing wrong with you down there...only that your nerve endings in that area are going bananas !!!

Take care hon.
