So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. 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 …

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

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

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 …

Just a quick introduction, but I imagine for the most part I'll spend my next few weeks creeping the boards reading your stories.

Been spending some time with the Nurse regarding the issue, finally had my first appointment with my obgyn today, and off for another round of testing to rule out ALL pathogens. He suspects its vulvodynia.

I'm still young though, just turned 21, and only really been dealing with the issue for about a year (since the beginning).

Aside from that, I'm from Canada, a student, and getting married in 6 months! Very Happy

That's the hardest part... the wedding is in six months

new too....

Post  joanna82 on Thu Nov 03, 2011 8:07 am

Hello Simply Belle,

i'm new here too. Was "formally" diagnosed yesterday after 5 years of going around in circles. I am so angry at all those doctors that kept telling me it was all in my head... I can't even beggin to explain what it did to my confidence in bed and to my relationship with my partner.
On the positive side, at least now what i have has a name!

Congratulations on your wedding, I hope your husband-to-be supports you all the way.

Joanna

Congrats on the wedding Simply Belle!

My v started 6 weeks into my marriage. I married at 21 also! People think you are young. But when you know, you know! I have been lucky enough to have a very supportive husband. We work around any sexual pain I have but things are vastly improved after internal physical therapy and the herbal route. I have another post here listing my herbs. I also came off BCP as I felt it was contibuting to my symptoms. Since I have PCOS I now don't have periods which I suppose stops period induced vulva flares. The pill was making my vulva pain worse also. Sometimes it is just one one thing, but a few things that contribute to form the pain symdrome. I recently just found some more parts to my puzzle.

Muscles, nerves and skin irritation. I tired meds for the nerve part but the herbs work way better. Once I got the nerves settled my muscles have started to relax and it no longer hurts to sit! (sex hurts at first and then gets better after a minute or so, but if I am turned on we can go straight into it now, I'ts not like it was before, but I stopped hoping for 100% a while ago). It really is just finding YOUR treatment and I bet if you really put yourself into finding it over the next few months, you will improve! First port of call would be Physical Therapy, especially if your pain is only with sex.

Good luck in your journey and marriage - Sometimes having a partner, really can make it easier - mine does.

Claire xoxo

Just an update: Final diagnosis after a clear ultra sound last week, and now my gynaecologist is sending me off with a referral to the Multidisciplinary Vulvodynia Clinic in Vancouver. Anyone heard anything about it?
