Hi All. I was diagnosed last October (2017) after 12 months of misdiagnosed thrush and post hysterectomy vaginitis. I had to change my GP appointment at the last minute and the other Dr recognised it immediately ! She said it was an unpleasant diagnosis but at least she could offer some treatment, unlike the previous (mistaken) condition. I was given Mometasone... the relief was instant...  

I have still to try some of the tips on here eg. bicarbonate and borax but I'm getting on it. 

My tip is... urinating standing up !! I have perfected the technique by accident really, I used a SheWee occasionally over some years and got it out again after 'the news' ... After a month or so I decided to try it without and found it was a more reliable method. It prevents the urine from dribbling all over the 'undercarriage' and less wiping is involved. METHOD: Stand facing the bowl, legs slightly apart. Lean forward on to your elbows or just bend them, if easier, against the facing wall... and let go !! If you have a husband or partner around you could pick some tips from them.

Give it a go... works for me !

    Ha Ha Ha....I suppose you know what are you talking about, I rinse with bicarbonate of water mixed into water and I keep it in a spray bottle, take it with me everywhere. I give it a try.....

    I apply doublebase gel every time I go for a wee. Stops urine touching skin and tissue paper dragging the skin. 😃

    I agree Frances66 that it seems to be the angle we pee at that that makes the difference.

    When I have a flare-up and cannot bear the hot urine stinging the sore area, I do a different thing but with much the same effect as you describe.

     I read it here on this forum a while back and it works.

     You sit on the toilet as normal but lean forward as far as possible so you are virtually touching the floor and when you let go out it comes straight/directly out.

    I think normally we pee slightly upwards so gravity sends it washing all over.

    I have a Shee-wee too so might give that a go next time - it might be even better. Thanks for the tip!

      Your very welcome... hope it works for you. 

      I've seen the tip re bending over,  but have a dodgy back and don't fancy getting stuck in that position !! wink
