So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

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 …

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, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

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 …

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 …

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 …

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH The Burning Bush!!!!!

Post  BpCookie on Fri Jun 15, 2012 8:17 pm

Im so glad I found this rant page because Im ssssssssooooo tired of this friggin burning. Ive had it for over a year, constant burning. It started out as such a small thing, a bit of burning here and there, kinda felt like a YI. Then the burning pain increased It starting hurting more, hurting every day, all day, all night, it spread to the entire vulva area, all the way to the pubic hair, down the buttocks and finally my inner thighs. WTH is going on? About two months ago I thought the Dr. had found the magic cure for my pain, Lyrica. At first it worked wonders, then it started not to work as well and for the past two weeks, the burning bush is back and she is pissed off!!!! Im not sure what changed *shrug*. My depression is back, Im crying off and on again. I cant allow for my husband to know how depressed I am because right now he is under major stress at work and I dont want to add to it.

So Im back to sitting on ice packs, back to not being able to sit down. Right now I am on my knees as I type this. This is so frustrating. I feel like Im at a loss. Ive tried everything, even some expensive things that the Dr. used me as a guinea pig for.

Im tired of this. I hate mother nature. If I ever get my hands on her..........Im going to set HER bush on fire and see how she likes that. Anyone have her address?

Hello Barbie, Since the time that I wrote this post, things have improved by about 50%. I found a great gyno. He has done two surgeries and procedures that consist of him injecting alcohol under the skin to burn the nerves. It hurts like a motha when he does it but it does seem to help. Unfortunately it only has helped for 2 months and now I have to go back to see him. I try to have hope that he will find the magic cure.

Thanks for replying

hugs

Have your tried not using any purfumes products down Ther? I manage to get rid of my burning pain through only using aqueous creme to wash with and washing my hair ovwr bath (not wile im in it) so shampoo doesn't get into my bits. I also changed my washing powder to non bio and no Softner for all my knickers and pj bottoms, lidocaine also helped my recovery. I also use coconut oil everyday and that stuff is amazing.

That might just be the little extra you need to get that other 50% back x

Hi Sparkle, I stopped using all perfumed products a few years ago and I also use dove bar soap to wash with. I try not to get any soap down there. I also only use Ultra soft Charmin. I usually go with out undies unless I have to leave the house. I hardly even go swimming now because the chemicals cause me more pain. I do use Lidocaine 5% ointment to numb the area but it only numbs the top layers and I need something to numb deeper. I use A and D ointment which seems to help. I used to use Emu oil but that stuff costs a fortune. I may try the coconut oil that you use.

I see my Dr. in a few more weeks and he may plan to do another procedure. If he is planning to do it, he better do it quickly because I just received an email saying that he is retiring June 1st. I am very depressed about it because he was the only Dr. who has ever helped me and I have seen many.

Thank you for your reply

Hi BpCookie,

Do you mind sharing how your burning started? and what caused the burning to spread to the entire vulva/aggravated your symptom?
Mine started with a tissue trauma i think, so I'm trying to use remedies that reduce the inflammation there:)
