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 …

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 …

Quick question - peeing

Post  penfebruary on Sun May 06, 2012 5:29 pm

Does anyone else find, I think its pretty common, that staying very hydrated helps with pain and inflammation? I do and if so, does this mean that the pain is viral? With UTIs etc I know its important to stay hydrated so would this indicate some form of subclinical infection? I've tested negative for all these types of problems but don't really believe a word the doctor says any more. Thanks

Re quick question peeing

Post  Sunflower82 on Sun May 06, 2012 6:38 pm

Hi,
Yeah I find the more I drink the better I feel, I'm not sure why I suffer from the burning pain after I wee, on days where I run around like a headless chicken at work and I don't drink enough I get a stabbing pain in my tummy and down below. I am really careful to just drink water and only have the odd cup of coffee and drink decaf tea, once went through a phase of liking chocolate soya milk, vey bad burned even more when I went. Also milk chocolate makes it worse ! I'm not sure that will be the same for everyone but it is for me.

Hi, I also have this trouble, and I never really get thirsty so I kinda forget to drink enough most days :/. I think that its something to do with the urine building up inside being too..concentrated/strong (if they're the right words to use!) and then it stays there til theres enough to make you need to pee, which must irritate the area even more.. especially if you don't go as soon as you need to pee, which obviously is sometimes hard if you're not near a toilet or busy or whatever. I also think that it may be linked with cystitis, as the pee being a really high temp must make the vulvodynia burning worse. Sorry if this message doesn't really make sense, I'm not too good at explaining what I mean!! But just wanted to say I know what you mean and that's my very unscientific theory as to why ha ha!! I always think right I'm gonna drink 7-8 glasses of water tomorrow and I never manage it, I pretty much only drink water, but like 2 glasses :/ not good at all considering how bad my pain is I really don't help myself do I!!
