Hi ladies. I'm here to explain my story and maybe get some help and advice.
This started off like a regular UTI for me, I had sex multiple times one day with my boyfriend and of course the UTI came not long after. I took trimethoprim and drank water etc etc.
The UTI pain E.g that burning/glass feeling at the end of urinating etc had gone but I was left with a constant 24/7 burning around my urethra.
I went to the docs explained , he gave me more antibiotics and we waited 2 weeks for the urine sample to come back. The pain completely debilitated me, I couldn't leave the house I spend most of my time in baths crying not getting any relief no matter what I did. I cut out alcohol, coffee, smoking (one positive thing from all this?) fragrances, only cotton underwear, different toilet paper, no sex of course everything I could think of - no help.
Finally the urin came back NO INFECTION.
I was actually devasted.
The next few weeks we desperately tested for thrush, std's including herpes, trichinosis , urine PH, vagina PH. All negative, meanwhile the burning stayed and is always worse AFTER urination. No pain during wee-ing.
We had an MRI , it just shows multiple cysts on ovaries but I've been told that's normal.
My vagina is bright red, and constantly feels like it's been scorched. I'm 21, no medications and desperately out of money and will.
My doctor has said it could be vulvodynia which sadly is a different way of saying 'unexplained vulva pain' and often treated with strong meds, I just can't believe there is no reason for my pain?!
Has any one suffered with similar? Or have any advice? Thank you in advance!!
