Somebody please help me...

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 …

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 …

I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months.

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 …

Sex and Vulvodynia

Post  BpCookie on Fri Jan 27, 2012 5:51 pm

Hello Ladies, (trigger, kinda goes into some detail, just wanted to warn you all) Sex and Vulvodynia usually dont go together well. I have Lichen Simplex Chronicus Vulva and sex made the area burn more than usual and then I would end up suffering severely for days after. The Peri-menopause came and it added even more pain when I had sex. It felt like a knife was slicing me and of course the burning added to the pain. So I totally gave up on sex. My psychiatrist put me on an anti depressant and an anxiety med. So last night I take all my meds plus added a Lunesta (sleeping med.) to the mix. I felt a bit on the tipsy side, kinda strange feeling. So I rolled over in bed, kinda started some four play with the hubby and he wanted to make sure that I was good and ready before we had sex. So I came up with an idea. I wanted to be VERY lubed up, so I put Astroglide into a syringe thingy and insert a lot of the stuff into my vagina, I made sure it was good an lubed. I decided to get on top so that I would have full control over how deep and how slowly to put it in. Once it was in then I told him I wanted to roll over on my stomach and he could enter from behind, since in that position he doesnt enter as deeply. I couldnt believe it, we had sex with out too much pain. There was a bit of pain but not anything like it had been before. OMG, I was so happy. This is like a HUGE step for me. It has really brightened my day. Its like I accomplished something.
