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 …

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, …

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 …

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 …

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 …

The good oil!!!

Post  Mouse on Tue Aug 16, 2011 2:52 am

We all know the beauty of coconut oil. Today I found a new use for it and it's still not going in a salad.

I have seasonal dermatitis according to my GP. Naomi and I both doubt that's true but hey we're only the guinea pigs! I tried the medication she gave me, along with my new diagnosis of fibromyalgia. I'm allergic to it and puffed out like a goldfish. I was thinking maybe this is one of those get worse before you get better scenarios. She also said don't use water on your face. This is proving tricky because the fibro news has shattered my world (this really is a positive story). One pain condition I felt I could conquer - the auto immune disease is what it is and is never going away. So lots of fluid has been coming out of the eyes making the burning and swelling unbearable.

Anyhoo Naomi told me to try some other things (loads of helpful links as well!) and while I was talking to my friend who owns a health shop she said try almond oil. Now anyone who has been on the Dr Betty site knows about almond oil. It's a fab lubrication with healing properties. I said I have some of that and I also have coconut oil. Even better she said!

So my good news story is I can leave the house again without scaring small animals and children. Now I just need to stop bursting into tears. Maybe cannabis oil will cure that Twisted Evil

Sorry to hear of your diagnosis Vicki.

Try Max GSL it accelerates your glutathione production, which is basically an anti inflammatory your body produces itself.

My mum has been using it for 4 weeks and is so so much better.

Worth a shot!

Oh and cannabis will help too Smile
