New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

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

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

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 …

Ovestin Cream

Ovestin Cream

Post  Vulvosaurus on Fri Jul 22, 2011 11:21 pm

Hi all,

I've been prescribed Ovestin (Oestriol) cream for my Vulvodynia symptoms. My Gynae thought it would be worth trying a topical estrogen because my problems began when I came off a combined contraceptive pill and started taking a progestogen only pill.

Has anybody else tried this stuff?

The cream comes with a giant applicatior and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to use it or just apply the cream locally to the affected areas.
What do you guys think?

Thanks

Ive not used it so if I were you I would give your dr a quick call to find out how to use it

My guess is that if you have mainly pain on the outer skin and maybe just within the entrance to the vagina then there does not seem much need for a giant applicator?

Check it out with your doc tho as you want to make sure you use it correctly

Ovestin Cream

Post  Joolibee on Sun Jul 24, 2011 8:51 pm

I haven't used Ovestin, but I use Trophicreme, prescribed in France. I think the two are similar. My understanding is that you should use the cream internally if you are menopausal, but just use on your vulva if you are pre-menopausal. If you are not sure of the instructions, you should check with either the pharmacist or the doctor.

I used a simalar cream it wasnt the brand name but it was Oestriol. My gyne just told me to put it on the outside and a little inside. This was when it all first started though and the Gyne was just filling in for the usual one, when she came back (she was completely incompetant) she said there was nothing wrong with my hormones because I was on the pill (when in actual fact the pill screws your homones up!) so I stopped using it. After much reasearch I found the pill could have contributed to my pain in the first place and now I have more of an idea about this conditation oestriol doesn't seem like a bad idea now that I am off the pill.

Hope this helps.
