    Looking for a friend..... and new problems

    Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

    Hi everyone,

    I hope you're doing well.

    I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

    6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

    Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.

I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

    Looking for suggestions or encouragement

    Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

    Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

    In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

    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 …

    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, …

    Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

    Hi everyone,

    I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

    I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

    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 …

    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 …

    Any other 'burners' out there?

    Any other 'burners' out there?

    Post  VaxilRae on Tue Sep 06, 2011 7:40 pm

    Sad My only vulvodynia symptoms are a burning sensation around the opening of my vagina and labia minor (vestibule), NOT my urethra. Vagisil and other feminine creams have no affect on the burning. Its not my muscles, its my skin, as i can have sex and use tampons normally. The only things that ever help me find relief are A.) Baths B.) Icepack against crotch C. Narcotic Pain Killer (ugth) and I normally start with a bath, which gets rid of the burning 50% of the time, than to icepack, and if nothing else brings relief, Vicadin.

    Is there anyone else out there who just burns??? I do not have a bladder infection, although the odd thing is 90% of the time the burning starts right after I pee! I have considered seeing a dermatologist to take a skin sample off the opening of my minora. I am being driven CRAZY! The burning comes often, up to 4-5 nights a week!

    Please help, I have no STDs, infection, but my opening just seeths with pain! Sad

    me, i'm a burner

    Post  grassy on Wed Sep 07, 2011 8:46 pm

    me, me. I burn. I think its my skin too. I burn, after I pee, and burn in the same **exact spots** as you do. The v hole opening, and the labia minor, one side and up the v crease. I tell you what i have been doing. I have a tube of clob.(cortisone) I have been experimenting. Its the ointment, NOT the cream. Its potent and dangerous so a person has to use a teeny amount. When i use it, i use the size of a pin head. So i'm playing with that and being careful. so far i think its helping. They say you have to taper down off it. I also feel like something is stuck in there somewhere. weird sensation. do you get that? cindy

    Vagisil Satin has hydrocortizone too. It use to work wonders but now it hardly helps, all the creams just ad to te burning!!!!
    I dont ever have any feels of anything being stuck in there now, just the burning. One time the burning was onesided and worked all the way up to my labia major! I was so horrified, and not in Narcotics got rid of it, I was so angry.

    Hello from one burning vulva to another. I have burning pain all over the vulva. What works for me? Before i went on medication for this I used a spray bottle after i peed and i used Vaseline to protect the skin from my urine...like creating a barrier. Then i found meds that helped cut out the burning. the meds helped for awhile, but the burning is still there. it is nothing like it used to be, well at least not all the time. I recommend that you get a skin biopsy to rule out skin conditions. most likely it's nerve pain. My doctor recommended A & D ointment to moisturize and protect the skin. This is located in the baby sections in stores. it's used to protect baby's bottoms. i was recently prescribed lidocaine 5% ointment. I can tolerate it about 2 times a day. when i do use the ointment, after a little bit of burning initially, i have complete relief for about 1-2 hours. i am on a variety of meds: Gabepentin, Lyrica (was on Cymbalta-didn't help), and i just started Ami 2 days ago. I also take Percocet. I had a period of several months of relief about 6 months ago...now i'm going backwards. i'm hoping the Ami works for me. I truly believe these meds can make a difference in the pain. good luck! Smile
