Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

Partial Vestibulectomy

Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:44 pm by JGD13

Hi all i am new here.
I had a partial vestibulectomy 21/7 for my provoked vulvodynia.
After a painful few days and feeling quite uncomfortable it seemed to get better. 1 week after i noticed some white stuff and gloopy discharge, it wasnt smelly or itchy but i got a check up at the gp surgery and the doctor said the stitches looked fine and i could just have a touch of thrush. He said this is …

Post Vestibulectomy

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering


I had my vestibulectomy (full) about a day and a half ago. I was very sick and poorly just after the op and experienced intense pain down there Sad

However, today I came home and have done the following things:

-washed with warm water
-applied manuka honey to the area
-ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

As of now I am …

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 …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Am I ready for tricyclics?

Am I ready for tricyclics?

Post  penfebruary on Fri Mar 16, 2012 12:11 am

So I was diagnosed with V back in September and tried hydro cream for like, 2 days before quickly giving that up due to the pain.. since then I have only used lidocaine gel, which has been semi helpful for me. Went for another hospital visit this week and I am now being prescribed amitryptaline.
I am just wondering if this is a big jump? Having researched tricyclics, the side effects and inability to drink alcohol etc are worrying me - I'm only 20, and committing to taking a drug conceivably for life, or at least for a few years if it works, is worrying me quite a lot.
Are there any steps that should come before this? Or is it really time for me to take this medication? To be honest, if I got to be pain free.. I wouldn't care what else I had to give up.

(Please no personal stories about how ami didn't work for you - everyone is different, I'd like to go into this positively if it is the right option for me! Thanks Smile)

also 20..

Post  ilovebaxter1 on Sun Mar 18, 2012 12:46 am

hi Smile i am also 20 and suffering from a v disorder that ive had for over a year..i have inflamation and irritation of my vulva (vulvitis) and when my inflamation goes down i am also going to be going on a tricyclic to treat the irritation. I've also had the same concern about not being ready to commit to not drinking/smoking since we are both sooo young and aren't even 21 year ya know? just letting you know youre not the only one and i think if it helps itll be worth it Smile I've also read that taking ami only makes you a light weight when you drink and you get more dizzy? im not sure though lol if you end up going on it please keep us posted id like to know if it works!

I would say ami isn't necessarily a big jump. It was the first thing I was offered & the first thing I tried. The only other major thing I can think of is maybe physio but you could always do that at the same time as taking ami. It's a difficult decision but on the balance of things, wouldn't it be wonderful if it worked for you? After all, if you get up to the highest dose and it doesn't help you can just come off it and try something else, or give your body a break for a while. I probably shouldn't admit this but I'm sure I had the odd sneaky drink when I was on ami...

Hope it works for you if you go for it! xx

Amitriptyline was one of the first things prescribed for me too. I think it's pretty standard to go for it early on, although I'm not too sure why, I don't know if there's a high-ish success rate for it or not???

As for it being a big jump... My GP, and every other doctor I've spoken to, was more concerned about me having Pregabalin than Ami, so I don't think it's too much of a big deal. But I guess it depends how high you go up. I tried it for 3 months at 30mg a day, which was a lot more than they were happy to give me, and came off it cold turkey without any problems. And no one told me not to drink on them (this is the first I've heard about it!) and I didn't notice any difference when I was drinking.

I wouldn't worry about it too much though. I just ask for whatever they'll possibly give me, regardless of concerns, anything to get this gone!

I hope it works for you!

P.S. I'm 22...
