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

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 …

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 …

so.. its not a bladder infection..

Post  forever-blossoming on Sat Feb 25, 2012 7:32 am

im just a high school student trying my best to fit into the norms of the society, while doing my best in high school to one day reach the fashion industry until one day in my final year of year 11 i kept running to the bathroom to the point where i had to tell teachers 'i need a drink'...ironic huh? this became my excessive excuse until teachers began to notice it becoming a habit. the moment i had to start lying about going to the bathroom, i felt so embarrassed. i was convinved it was a bladder infection. i told the doctors about it and they were convinced too, but it didnt appear in urine tests that i had a bladder infection. the doctor said ' sometimes it doesnt show in tests, but your symptoms are compatible'. for me i was reliefed that i was give some tablets for releif .. until i didnt get relief.. this has carried on for 5 months. 5 days a week at school. 6 hours a day. i couldnt go on important excursions because i felt like i need to run to the bathroom. ive missed out on so much, and my grades have gone down abit cause of this too. now im so concerned for when im older and want to go to uni and got ajob... whos going to want to employ the girl with the peeing problem, when they could hire someone who can not go to the bathrom for 7 hours.
i have my mid term exams for my final year coming up and im already planning that im going to need 6 doctors certificates !
these past five months have been a roller coaster for me.. i had a friend who would sometimes forget bout my problem and tease me a bit, and then i had another one who is incrediably understanding and would ask me if i needed to go and wouldnt blame me if we missed a bus cause i need to go to the bathroom.
thats another thing. public transport. i cant travel for long then 10ish minutes without the sensation of needing to go. i always think to myself when is this going to stop ! i hate it ! i feel like this stupid problem is controlling my life . but them there are times where i just accept it and try my best to embrace it and that now its apart of who i am.
