I have IBS D and for the past two years I have had frequent bladder infections. In the past year I have also gotten quite a few yeast infections and some baterial infections. I also have recently had irritation in the vaginal area. I've had tests done and they came back with nothing. My gyno says if it doesn't clear up, they might look at the possibilty of it being vulvadynia. I don't know if these are connected to IBS or not. I was just wondering if anyone else had these problems.I have also just been prescribed elavil for my IBS. I had read somewhere that this is sometimes prescribed for vulvadynia. So maybe I can kill two birds with one stone.I would also be interested in hearing from anyone who has been diagnosed with vulvadynia. I was just wondering exactly what symptoms you had and what they prescribed for it. Thanks all for your help.
