I have yet to be diagnosed but I believe I have symptoms of provoked vulvar vestibulitis since 2 months ago after being treated with lots of (redundant) medications for a vaginal thrush which I wouldn't think was a bad one.
Since then my pain remained and recently I've been to a gynae twice who treated me with a potent steroid that took away some inflammation and stinging feeling …

I didn't log on as no alert messages (places head in palms!!!) so would visit the forum from time to time but would find it difficult to deal with the lack of relief or cure. So it was easier to try to ignore and get on with my life (after the last consultant …

I'm at a stage in my life where my vulva pain has completely taken over. I'm depressed and even suicidal and after crying a ton today, decided to look for support.
I'm from the UK, I'm 31 and I've suffered with pain, burning and stinging of the vulva, clitoris and vestibule for 12years after a yeast infection and a bladder infection.
I've struggled over the last decade trying to …

I feel like an expert on the subject of Vulvodynia. So much so, that I have had doctors admit to me that I know more about it than them. I'm sure a lot of you have seen this. So little is know about this in the medical world that it can become very frustrating to find answers.
I'm 30 years old. Ever since I lost my virginity at the age of 17, I have had vaginal …

He seems to be saying that it is not yet possible to register Neogyn in Europe, but I need time to translate the rest of the e-mail.
It would only be polite for me to reply in French, as I don't know how well he speaks English, so I will need to allow some time to construct my reply, as my French is far from fluent.
Anyway, I am heartened to have received such a prompt reply and from the CEO. It does at least indicate that they care about their customers.
I will keep you posted.

The money we have all payed out is so annoying,and all of us are still not getting the answers and help we need. I feel the ladies on here who have experince over the years with V like myself pretty much heal themselves with whatever we can.
You would die laughing if I told you some of the whacky things I have done to get rid of this.
So at the moment still using the cream, biofeedback, estradiol with emu oil, Gabapentin.
Take care all xx

I've been using the cream for 3 weeks now and I haven't noticed any difference yet. As for the actual cream, I wouldn't exactly say it's easily absorbed so it takes a while to rub it in, are you finding this? Not really a problem though, as long as i'm actually getting enough on there. So I haven't noticed any improvement yet, but I will try it for the full 8 weeks. I know it takes a while for the creation of new dermal cells, so i'm not writing it off. I'm not using any other treatments at the moment so if it works i'll be able to say it was the cream and not something else.
Hope it's going ok for you!
Yeah i've also checked the ingredients. They are all frequently used in cosmetics, apart from cutaneous lysate, which is a fairly new creation developed for wound healing. It's the ingredient that causes the creation of new dermal cells. As for Ceteareth-12, it is used in cosmetics too. With regard to the cancer link, so many things are that i'm not particularly concerned! I mean estrogen cream is too, and so many of us ladies on here use that! I'll keep you posted if there is or isn't an improvement after 8 weeks though.

Yeah I have used the lidocaine 5% nightly as suggested in the research study that investigated it. Unfortunately, it didn't help me. It did numb things obviously, but then once it wore off it would be the same level of pain. The constant moist feeling at night made things a bit itchy during the daytime too! The research suggests using it every night for 7 weeks on a cotton ball, and also applying it liberally in the mornings I think. As I said I didn't notice a difference, but it may help you! Do you have generalised or localised V though? I have localised. I've been using the Neogyn for 4 weeks now and still no change. I haven't noticed any burning, but no improvement either. I'll keep going for the full 8 weeks though just in case it hasn't had time to take effect yet.
I also checked their Scientific Advisory Board on their web site neogyn.us: it is also very impressing.
finally have a look at the VNR on youtube where Dr. Goldstein speacks about vulvodynia and neogyn.
We have something there ladies! It seems also working on Lichen Scelorosus see: slideshare.net/Neogyn/goldstein-issvd-2011

I've been using the cream for 8 weeks now. At the moment i'm having a slight flare up (due being just before my period and having recently started using dilators again), so I can't say whether there has been an improvement. I'll use it for another 4 weeks and see. It definitely hasn't been a cure. But looking at the study stats, no patients were cured by it, in fact although there was a statistically 'significant' improvement, it was minimal. I didn't have any irritation though, and if anything by using the cream 3 times a day i've become a lot more comfortable using my fingers in that area, so that can't be a bad thing. But the jury is still out as to whether there has been an improvement, but it definitely hasn't made anything worse.
Melissa, can I ask what other message board women are discussing neogyn on? I'd be interested to read others' experiences of it.
I have also used a number of different types of suppositories that were supposed to sooth the area and those failed. Tried Amatryptyline (sp) tablets and Gabbapentin tablets but they failed too. Was given Lidocaine ointment but that was another failure. Bought something called terrasil but it failed like the others. Then I started experimenting with every oil that I could think of but nothing seemed to help. Ive used Clobetasol for a year now and although I tell the Dr.s that its not working, they all insist that its the best thing for it. *rolling eyes*. All day and all night long I use A and D ointment and thats the only thing that keeps me from going absolutely crazy. Im still on the look out for that fix-it-all magic treatment. Good luck to you all and I hope you find relief soon.
