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

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

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 …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules


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 …

Newly diagnosed

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 again

Post  Melissa777 on Sat Aug 20, 2011 11:44 pm

well- cold laser therapy is a red light therapy, you can research it on the web. usually only dermatologists or chiropractors have it. you can purchase them as well, but they are super expensive.
I read on another msg board a lady here in the us was having good experience with it... and her inflammation/ redness was increasing.

you know my V is odd.... one doctor dx me with provoked, and another dx me with unprovoked.

one said i didnt even have it, but it was dermatitis...
so who knows
all i know is sometimes im irritated down there, and sometimes im not
and sometimes if i look i see red areas... and sometimes it looks better

so im pretty much trying things to just simply get it to feel better..and today seems to be a better day
second day of cold laser so far so good.

ive had literally over 10 cultures for everything- all negative

anyhow whatever works will work

what im currently doing
anti candida diet (low/no carbs or yeast)- just in case this is yeast related- although unproven
(Ive tried a month of diflucan and it made no difference)
phellostatin from acupuncturist to remove damp heat (dont use unless you have a diagnosis of damp heat)
renew life vaginal support pro biotic
fem dophilus
coconut oil 1 tbs per day
multi mineral supplement from my MD
vitamin D 3 2000 mg
Cod Liver Oil
NO TUNA or fish that can contain heavy metals
lots of fresh veggies (except yes i eat corn, my acupuncturist said its great for skin)
some fruits- only strawberry's, watermelon, peaches, grapes but no more than 1/2 or 1/4 cup per day
yogurt with low sugar content
and sun chlorella (green supplement)

as well as now cold laser therapy once a week after this week, acupuncture once a week, and NAET (natural allergy technique)

I also see blue light therapy may work... it works on acne and people whom get inflammation that way, but who knows....
I do have estrogen vaginal cream 0.05% in a non allergenic base i use off and on- sometimes i find it helps, sometimes not
i tried emu oil- did not work for me
tried coconut oil topically- made it worse

all of this dang inflammation for me begin after one yeast infection back in sept of 2010. i only used one yeast cream and diflucan back then, it went away- still had itching off and on, so my former GYN had me use boric acid suppositories for a month- all that did was cause major inflammation and dermatitis
which im def better now- way better now than i was a few months ago, but... i think the boric acid is what made my issue worse especially using cortisone ointment at the same time....
now im trying to be simple and not really use anything down there other than the estro cream once in a while
unless some miracle comes up- like the neogyn cream- who knows??
