    Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

    Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

    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,

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


    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 …

    Post Full Vestibulectomy - 5 Years Later - Please Read

    Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

    Hi All,

    It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

    For 4 years post …

    Heres Hoping .....

    Post  Alex on Wed Nov 16, 2011 3:05 am

    So I should probably wait until tomorrow to make this post, but I'm feeling somewhat optomistic. I missed both my doctors appointments, but had a telephone consult w my GP. She was unwilling to put me on Gabapenten without seeing me, but did up my Ami by a whopping 10mg, putting me at 20mg. I don't even notice the diff. And she also said she would refill the topical cream I've been using, which gave me immediate however just momentary releif. It felt cool when applied but other than that, no significant help. When the cream was delivered I noticed it was a different cream than the one I've been using. I phoned my pharmacist but she said this cream would work better for me. It's a Cortoderm Oiltment 1%, Hydrocortisone ..... and a vasoline texture. So no nice cool feeling when applying, however, I think, I'm noticing a decrease in my pain!!!!!!!!! Very Happy I will follow up this post in a day or two, and when I am completely certain that the cream is working for me.
