Any chance this could be something other than vulvodynia?

Wed Aug 20, 2014 7:45 am by mythreesons

I'm 45 and was diagnosed with vulvodynia 2 years ago. I was put on amitriptyline and vagifem and got the symptoms pretty much under control for almost 2 years, with just minor flare-ups whenever I'd have to wear a pad during my period. I weaned myself off the vagifem after the first 6 months and still didn't have a flare-up. Then in mid-June of this year, I started getting vulvar inflammation …

Tue Aug 05, 2014 10:44 am by owlcity

I've bee recently diagnosted with vulvodynia. I had my first UTI and that was probably the trigger for me. I started using estrace topical cream and at first it didn't help at all. After few weeks i actually had one month with no pain or burning. I almost forgot that i have a "problem". The lastfew days the burning is back on and off, maybe not as bad as before. I don't know if i should …

New to forum but not new to vulvodynia

Thu Aug 14, 2014 4:31 pm by Nelliewelly

New to forum. Based in UK (south east). Just come from another gynae appointment- you have to laugh or you'd cry. Gynae suggested injections to turn off ovaries then hysterectomy. I am 40 and had 2 major vulvodynia flares lasting months-years since I was 20. This is third flare caused by a dreadful routine cervical smear by professional nurse (?!?!) in December 2013. I try to stay positive, …

Has anyone tried Fusidic acid-hydrocortisone cream?

Thu Aug 14, 2014 10:35 pm by yoginimom

i'm always scared to try a new prescription in case it makes it worse. Has anyone tried this and had success?

Also does your skin feel like a raw chemical type burn pain? And what do you do that helps ease the skin sensitivity?

I've tried coconut oil, and that can be helpful at time. But sometimes nothing works.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Hi all,  I love you 
I'm new here!
I'm a junior in college and was recently diagnosed with VVS. I had been taking birth control for the past year and 2 months before getting diagnosed, since it was the only thing that worked for my skin. Of course, I'm one of those people who hates hates hates blood, so I would always skip the sugar pills and start a new pack.
I got a yeast infection once, and …

New here, diagnosed 2 years ago

Wed Jul 30, 2014 10:17 pm by mythreesons

I'm Teri from Alberta, Canada. I was diagnosed with Vulvodynia 2 years ago after 2 months of terrible burning pain that doctors could find no reason for. I started taking Elavil (30 mg per day) and Vagifem 2 times/week. That kept symptoms mostly under control for almost 2 full years. About 6 weeks ago, I started my first major flare-up for reasons unknown and can't seem to get it under …

Evening Primrose Oil

Evening Primrose Oil

Post  Grateful on Wed Jul 04, 2012 3:08 am

I have been suffering with vulvar pain for eight years - just assumed it was part of menopause and growing older. I was using Vagifem vaginal hormone supplements and my doctor said everything looked fine but I was still experiencing excruciating pain whenever I had intercourse with a lot of burning and pain afterwards. I also experienced vulvar pain when bathing or using bath tissue. I finally turned to the internet and found the term for what I was actually experiencing. It was wonderful to know I wasn't alone and to read other women's advice. After reading some user's comments, I started using Evening Primrose Oil. I rub the oil from 2 500mg softgels on my vulvar area each evening before bed. The difference has been miraculous! Within one week I could tell a difference and within a month I was having intercourse again without pain. I feel like I have gotten my life and my marriage back. I would encourage every woman to at least try evening primrose oil to see if it will make a difference for them.

Re: Evening Primrose Oil

Post  bluekangeroo on Thu Jul 05, 2012 12:39 pm

This is very interesting, thanks for sharing. What is the theory behind eve primrose oil being helpful?

I have found co-incidentally that during my period my pain eases off, and during my period I take eve primrose oil?! Hmmm maybe I shouldn't stop taking it when my period ends?

I had never considered getting the oil out of the pills and rubbing it on topically though. Can you really do that? And if so, how come nobody sells the oil in topical form? Or do they?

I would love to hear how anyone else gets on with this method if you try it.

Primrose Oil

Post  Grateful on Fri Jul 06, 2012 12:24 am

I have tried to find Evening Primrose in just the oil form not caplets but haven't been able to find it so far. I just pierce a hole in the tablets and squeeze the oil out - it's a little messy, but well worth the effort. I do wish you could find it bottled as just oil.

Essential oils are giving me a chance at an actual sex life

Post  lavrose on Fri Jul 06, 2012 2:29 am

Ok guys. I promised God that if he helped me find a cure for this horrible, life ruining, afflicting, 24/7 misunderstood condition, I would share it with everyone, as I have done TIRELESS research, read every book, scoured the net, and consulted with many doctors. Im 32 years old.
Ive always had a problem with painful sex, and a constant burning vag, but recently I was diagnosed with something far more horrible. Interstitial Cystitus.
Painful Bladder syndrome. Many women with Vulvodynia, many times have interstitial cystitus aswell, and I do frequent UTI's and I control them with a daily probiotic, but this particular bladder infection would not go away. Guys, this condition has literally ruined lives. Women hav e to go on disability for it. Imagine a voracious, raging UTI that never goes away. ever. and there is no cure. Its one thing not to be able to have sex, or sit for too long, or wear anything tight. But to be aware of constant, swollen, urethral frequency and burning, having to go to the bathroom every five minutes, cant sleep thru the night, the pain is compared to Cancer. People have to go on methadone, and antidepressants over it. Anywho, After I wept and begged on my knees for God to cure me, and help me, and even called a prayer line (LOL!!) and cried on my moms shoulder, (she prayed with me for a cure also) I made an appointment with a Urologist in Cleveland, Ohio at the Cleveland clinic. The best in the country. I got diagnosed with Ureaplasma, and Im currently on a strong 30 day course of antibiotics, (augmentin, zithromax, doxicycline) then I will be on long term antibiotics for the duration, until I test negative, which could take over a year.
Many people dont know too much about Ureaplasma, so please, please google it, and try to find a doctor that will hear you ,and test you. There are links to this with V too.
The test is expensive, and many doctors havnt even heard of it, so you have to shop around. because Ureaplasma is linked to IC, (urethritis) it is also linked to infertilty, miscarriage, and premature birth. Maybe shop around for fertility doctors, say your trying to get pregnant, and your concerned about Ureaplasma. Its worth it guys, I feel 100% better now that I am taking the proper treatment. This little bacteria is prolly the the one responsible for a lifetime of pain, and ruined relationships.
The oils. I make suppositories with coconut oil, (frozen, in sport bottle ice cube trays) with various essential oils, and Ive been able to have a sex life and sometimes, pain free sex life, since I started this. The thing is. You have to rotate the oils, I learned this. For a couple of years I was just using tea tree (and douches are horrible by the way, please dont put them in douche, been there, done that) after awhile, it didnt work and I didnt know why. The Boric acid suppositories. Worked for awhile, then didnt work at all. Then Myrrh oil. Which is great by the way. Then lavender and rosemary oils. Also awesome. Then Tyme oil, and oregano oil. Awesomness. Also, grapefruit seed extract is great too. Now Im doing Geranium oil, and its the skin of my vag is very soft and supple, non itchy and completely burn free. It feels strong, and healed...Im totally down for sex atm Smile), but currently single again Sad(..but yea. Start out with a few drops, first few days, then work your way up to where you feel comfortable. I use quite a bit, especially for raging pain or infection, but everyones different.Theyve been working out great for me, but it has been such a long road. Ive read about many women just giving up, but dont please.
Wise women of antiquity have known about essential oils treating women's problems and vaginal infections for many centuries now. I admit, I was scared too and hesitant about putting strange smelly substances up there, but it is so worth it. Some days, I feel almost normal down there. Like when I was young. Also, change of diet, (more fiber, vegetables, green smothies, teas, wheatgrass shots) have made it possible to live a normal life, and be a healthy person again, and maybe a chance at a fulfilling relationship. Also, having constant vaginal infections CAN impact fertility. and I am hoping to get pregnant again. God luck and God Bless. God knows how much I have suffered and I prayed day and night for a cure. To be healed, and cured is the greatest blessing of all, the greatest blessing God can give you. And this is when he makes his presence known. When God heals you, when he has answered your prayer.

period

Post  lavrose on Fri Jul 06, 2012 2:35 am

and yes, my vaginal pain and symptoms do go away on my period, and sex feels alot better too. Weird. Ive also read about women being able to control their yeast, and bladder symptoms with coconut oil. Typically 3 to 6 TBLSP a day, everyday. I do eat coconut oil, but not that much!! LoL, I saw it made my skin glow, and look great, and I felt better, but it didnt do alot for my V. so....plus it makes your hair oily Sad
