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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Brazilian Wax Actually Helped.

Post  pepper7 on Sun Apr 29, 2012 10:15 pm

Ok so I did the Flucozole and it really, really, really helped. I was so shocked and happy that it worked and still continues to work-Im still getting a slight itch/burn every now and then but nothing compared to what it was.
Anyway I was going on holiday so I decided to get a brazilian wax (I know crazy right!?) Luckily my beautician is great so I knew Id be ok with her. Anyway after taking a day to get used to it (I get a brazilian every once in a while but havent had one in ages thanks to the pain) I felt normal. Completely no pain, no itch, no burning nothing! I was so unbelievably chilled out because the pain was gone and because I was chilled out and relaxed I wasnt worrying about the pain so I wasnt tense or tensing any muscles.
Anyway now that its been a couple of weeks the hair has started to grow back and its only now that Im getting any pain (just a bit of itching and burning) so it got me thinking, does the pubic hair have an effect on V pain? Maybe because the hair is so coarse it rubs/stresses the nerves causing reactions?
I know its a bit out there but I cant help thinking that it must have something to do with the pain.

I hope everyones dealing ok

Im so glad to here this is working for you and im interested in trying it myself. Funny im more afraid of the pain of waxing then the vest pain. But i was curious as to your pain before the wax. Was t frim intercourse, sitting or just constant pain. And how high would you scale your pain?

I feel better after a brazillian too. Once the hairs start growing back it irritates the skin. Obvously I am sore for a day or two after the brazillian but the lack of hair helps irritation. The hair deff irritates me!!

I get a wax once every 5 or so weeks.
