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 …

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 …

Is There A Natural Cure For Volvodynia

Post  viollette on Sun Aug 21, 2011 6:20 pm

Hi, just joined this forum today I was just wondering if there are more natural cures for volvodynia? I have tried taking St. John's Wort but it made my problem ''flare up '' even more.I just don't know how good it would be to keep taking antidepressants for the rest of my life science i don't see my problem going away any time soon.The Dr. that i see for this has never talk about alternatives to drugs? Has anyone had any luck with something other than drugs.Maybe vitamins or accupunture if so please give some suggestions.

honestly treatment depends on what caused your vv

Bio feedback for pelvic floor dysfunction has helped a lot of women (see a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor dysfunction).
The low oxalate diet with calcium citrate supplementation has helped a lot of women also. It has been a huge help for me (about 80% reduction in pain with touch and almost 100% reduction in the burning/itching).
These are the most natural cures that I know of that really have helped a significant number of women through the Vulvar Pain Foundation.

I have tried biofeedback and just about everything else. I just went and saw my gynocologist.
I know for me that it is SEX that aggravates it. So Im now using estrogen cream and not having sex for a month to really rule out that it just needs some time to heal.

I forgot to add that a lot of women are helped with skin stabilization therapies that were pioneered by Dr. Solomons and the Vulvar Pain Foundation's Pain Project. NAG (N-Acetyl-Glucos-amine) and HTO (hexadecyl tetradecenoyl oxtodecanoate) are supplements that many women have found helpful. If you click on the following link you'll find a short article on effective treatments and the order/time you are encouraged to try each one before adding the next treatment (you add it to the others, you don't stop it--only ox-absorb should be discontinued in this protocol if you do not see improvement over a month.) I will also add it took almost six years for me to reach my full relief, not 1 year as Dr. Solomons suggests in this article.

Hope this helpls.

Acupuncture

Post  let's kick this on Wed May 18, 2016 2:59 pm

Hi Red,

The needles are not inserted in your Vjj, I thought the same thing. I did 6 sessions it did not help my V.  I have tried lots of treatments the best so far for me is the vaginal probe used with tens machine. I'm still in pain but learning to cope.

Re: Is There A Natural Cure For Volvodynia

I'm on a weekly acupuncture routine and my Pelvic Floor Dysfunction has been reduced significantly! I've only had 3 sessions but my pain went from a 6 to a 2. I can have sex for about 30 minutes now before I have to give up, whereas it used to be around 10. Granted, my most problematic pain now is my vulvodynia. I have redness that is stubborn as hell. For that, I apply coconut oil at least 3 times a day and ingest around 2 tablespoons daily. Redness has gone down slightly but not quite enough.
This week I'm adding pelvic floor exercises.
I've been dealing with this for almost 4 years and alternative methods have helped me significantly more than the estrogen cream.
Hope this helps!
