Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

cold laser therapy seems to be working

Post  Melissa777 on Tue Aug 23, 2011 8:46 pm

so some exciting news (except i had a slight flare up on L side that lasted a few days)
the cold laser therapy seems to be working.. Ive only had 3 so far
but almost all the RED areas are gone
and my right side is starting to feel NORMAL.

I am not sure if this therapy is avail where you live, but I know they make the laser my Chiropractor uses in Sweden. I live in USA

basically how the treatment works
doc sets up laser for me and leaves room
I undress waist down, lay on the table, and use a pillow under my hips
let the laser beams directly hit my areas that need to be improved on
and whalaaaa its working

at the same time i do acupuncture
take phellostatin and si miao wan

But dont take those supplements unless your diagnosed with damp heat in lower area

I also am doing candida diet
agrisept
coconut oil
mineral supplement
vit d-3
fem dophilus
and probiotic for vaginal support with no FOS from renew life

finally noticing improvement... thank you jesus

of course- and prayer and healing through prayer
so stay positive

Im not really using anything topical
i find most dont work
except maybe my estroil topical compunded cream.... but thats really just to thicken skin

That's great, I'm not sure if what I had done around my hips is the same thing but I used to have some for of treatment on the lumps of knotted tissue behind my hips and it was designed to break it up a bit and reduce inflammation. In my case the results were short lived but I never got rid of the perpetuating factors so it couldn't possibly last long. Good luck and keep us all posted.

Re: cold laser therapy seems to be working

Cold laser or Low laser therapy can work. There are many lasers out there.
It depends though on HOW deep the laser has to penetrate and how strong the laser is. There are all levels out there. My chiros laser was VERY expensive and a very strong one.
I used it in the past when I broke my toe- and it healed my broken toe in 2 weeks - normally broken toes take 6 weeks- a few months to heal.

here is the catch
if you have a lot of MUSCLE mass on the area your getting cold laser- it may not work... because the light can't penetrate through that as well.

But since its my Vulva- wow I noticed a difference in only a few short treatments. I need at least 12 treatments to see most improvement, i have had 4

I looked with my mirror- redness is almost all gone

NOW here is the thing if your VV is caused by possibly bacteria or yeast even if they can't diagnose it- this type of laser- at a strong strength will work.

Its proven to work on killing- hard to kill toe nail fungus.

and its also shown to calm down nerve endings...
so all and all its def working- but you have to do a LOT of treatments before seeing results

10th treatment and feel so much better

Post  Melissa777 on Mon Sep 05, 2011 12:20 am

So yesterday (Sat) was my 10th cold laser treatment. Guess what I feel and look so much better. In fact, I went in for a check up with my NP and she said I am not as RED or INFLAMED as I was in July. I can actually touch my vestibule area now without it really bothering me... and able to use tampons! =)

Also acupuncture and the herbal Phellostatin is def working. Im also doing Adya Clarity for heavy metal detox =)

Ill keep you all posted- but so far so good

I also ordered my free sample of neogyn, ill give it a try to see if it helps
Im not using my estra cream as much anymore

=) yaya
