    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 …

    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

    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 …

    Yeast..and sex..?

    Post  ilovebaxter1 on Wed Sep 28, 2011 6:58 pm

    finally last night I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend since this has all been happening!(3-4 months) No pain at all just irritation/VERY itchy after! I'm so happy it didn't hurt I was sooo nervous :[. But I'm beginning to think maybe my problem is yeast related? I've been tested with just a regular culture for yeast and have used creams to treat yeast and dermatitis..however, there was no yeast to be found from those cultures. But isn't there other types of cultures/yeast tests? I'm just SOO lost on what would be causing these sypmtoms (itching, irritation, redness after rubbing against underwear.) I had BV twice this year but it was the first time I ever got it way back in december/winter and then AGAIN when all this was happening after I took flagyl. My reg. gyno thinks its vulvodynia and I kind of agree..but sometimes I really am not sure what it could be? I've been doing the same things all my life with no changes..i'm just so confused Mad any advice?

    If there's no yeast on cultures it isn't yeast, don't waste time going down that avenue which I think we all have at some point! If you keep gettng BV it might be an idea to try one of the more natural treatments for it like Biofem gel for a week or so and see how that goes, also I have heard Folic Acid supplements stop some women getting BV. Do you have alot of discharge?

    Hm idk I have always had so much discharge all my life i never know if it's normal or not. Sometimes it is even a greenish yellow color that shows up in my underwear. I've always had this since I can remember. I know BV symptoms are a colored discharge and there can be discomfort but even before i started getting itchy and irritated I had this color. No stds or anything though so Idk...maybe it is BV related?

    I started getting BV in december but when I got it then the only symptoms I had was painful intercourse so I went to the dr. to see the problem and I had bv so I took the flagyl. it cleared up and sex wasn't painful. Since then I haven't had BV until all this started happening in june. The first two cultures I took showed up negative for everything but they gave me flagyl anyways (before they saw my cultures were neg) but nothing helped. Then my third culture is when BV showed up positive so they gave flagyl for the 2nd time in my whole life. The only thing that helped was it wasn't as red down there and the irritation wasn't as bad. No

    I used to talk to a couple of ladies on www.womens-health.com who sometimes had BV and sometimes didn't but had lots of discharge and some irritation, if you go onto that site and into the forum then the gynaecology section there's lots of threads about BV. Repeated use of antibiotics could be a bad thing so if you can use any of the natural methods instead it would be better (carefully though, don't apply just anything), double the recommended daily dose of Folic Acid is one, lots of probiotics is another, one lady found avoiding dairy helped alot etc.
