Anyone else have Vulvovdynia


SnowAngel

Recommended Posts

My doctor said I have Vulvovdynia from the virus :( does anyone else have this? I'm worried I'll never be able to use a tampon again let alone have sex! She started me on 25mg of Amitriplyne yesterday. I'm praying it helps. Does anyone else have this? Please post any advice that helped!

Hi snow angel.  That is unexplained nerve pain. You are on almost the same treatment I am. I know.   I feel the same way. I will tell you that the more upset and stressed u get over it the worse you make it. I also am stressed to no end with this. The pills are helping me with the burning. It's been a week on them. I am hoping that not feeling the burn will lower my stress so when I get off the pills the pain doesn't come back. We can hope!

Hey are you still doing well on the meds? I'm still having some burning but it says it can take up to 4 weeks to work so I'm praying it kicks in soon.

I'm sorry Lab :( I'm in the exact same boat as you are in. The Amitriptlyn doesn't seem to be doing much at all. Have you found anything that helps? How long have you had this? Does yours in,y flare up while you're having an OB?  I don't know how much more I can take either :(

I absolutely do not have Vulvodynia. Oh yeah, that's right, I'm a guy :)

Ive not heard of it lol.  Hopefully after 1 year dx your symptoms will settle. Maybe some supplements for stress might help too.  Its all connected

Thank you! I hope so! I actually just started taking Kolonopin on an as needed basis so maybe taking one during my flare ups will help. Lab it might be worth asking your doctor about doing the same.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.

      I asked if it was hsv 1 or 2 and the doctor said it was Hsv2. I’m not sure i just asked him when he was tested last he said this year I said I think we should go test together and he agreed . I’m going to bring it up again cause I really need to know if he gave this to me I wasn’t sure since it was so close to my previous relationship.

      @EssenceL25 then it is all beyond reasonable doubt that the current partner is the source. A 'perfect' fit in terms of timing, symptoms and swab. It may be though that the type is not technically known. Culture swabs are very often not typed and just assumed to be HSV-2 if taken from a genital location. If you received oral sex in the days leading into 7 March then it is 50/50 as to whether this is HSV-1 or HSV-2. You could contact your doctor and confirm if the swab was actually typed (which is a second test where fluorescent antibodies for HSV-1 and HSV-2 are added and see which one 'glows').  If that test wasn't done then you do not know type. If you have oral HSV-1 yourself (cold sores) then this will be HSV-2. Does your partner have oral HSV-1? It is somewhat strange for him not to rush and test - many people have a 'reaction' if they truly do not know their status and have concerns that you infected them etc. (not initially rational of course). This indicates he may know his status - or maybe he just isn't simply the sharpest tool in the shed!?

      I had flu like symptoms and ulcers on my vagina . They did a culture and I tested positive for hsv2. I asked my partner to get tested he agreed but I’m not sure if he will cause he hasn’t said anything else about it.
