Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

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 …

Anyone tried nortriptyline?

Post  TheresaA. on Wed Jul 18, 2012 4:23 am

Has anyone tried nortriptyline? My doctor has prescribed it for me, I've been taking it for about 10 days now and don't see much improvement. My doctor says it could take several weeks to notice a difference.
I'm hoping it will provide some relief. I've been dealing with this for about 10 years. In the past it was only a few times a month, but now it is only a few times a month that I DON'T have it.

This is taking a real toll on my self image/self worth. It's put a definite strain on my marriage, my husband was more supportive in the past, but now that this has become more of an everyday thing our sex life is pretty non existent. I feel terrible about not having sex, but I feel way worse having it. I don't see things changing anytime soon as far as sex goes. Sex = pain, and not just during but also for several days after. It's very hard to communicate that to someone who has no idea of what it is like. I'm sure he thinks I am using this as an excuse. He knows i have pain but i am not vocal about my pain, I just live with it. I don't want to become one of those people that only talks about my pain/dr visits/treatments so he is not aware of how much pain I live with. Sad.

We went to a movie recently and it was a struggle to sit for that length of time. I need to get up every 15 minutes or so or the burning/pain becomes unbearable. I am unable to wear pants, and have only worn skirts or dresses for the last several years. I so wish I could wear pants!

Hoping for some relief soon.

About Nortriptolene

Post  Mandadity on Tue Jul 24, 2012 7:53 am

It did me wonders but put me to sleep within 20min. At the time I HAD to work so i had to just deal with being not really there at work, but if you can take a hard core nap afterwards its a great med. Although at least my body got used to it cuz i was using amnitriptolene before that.
