Hi folks...has anyone tried cbd suppositories or tried cbd oil vaginally/rectally for pelvic pain?

I had started with the regular drops, but as I was then prescribed many other medications I stopped - CBD interacts and affects the results of a lot of chemical components, so you have to time it properly (I think at least 3 hours before you take something else). The usual recommendation they give is, if you have to avoid grapefruit for your other medicine, than CBD will also interact with it. Eager to hear about other experiences!

Thanks but I am particularly interested in the local rectal/vaginal application of it...I just saw some cbd suppositories for sale online

The contraindications will still be the same, no matter what orifice you take the CBD from. For instance, if you also take lidocaine suppositories, you have to wait at least three hours if you want to take CBD suppositories, as lidocaine interacts with grapefruit. I hope this makes it clear why CBD is not really an option for most of us, given all the medications we have... other examples of "our" medicines that cannot be taken at the same time as CBD: laroxyl and gabapentin.

So for instance if I'm taking gabapentin around 8 then I can do CBD around 11?

You need to check with your doctor/pharmacist, because the rule I knew was three hours, but somewhere else I read 4h, some others say 2h.. And suppositories have a much slower release than oral drops of course, as the latter gets absorbed immediately by your organism, while the former take longer.

Of course! Chronic Pelvic Pain / Pelvic Floor dysfunction (vestibulitis / vestibulodynia, hypertonus of the levator ani, endometriosis, adenomyosis, cervicitis - I won the jackpot!)

Yikes!!! You did get the jackpot!!!... Have you tried Botox and what meds are you on if you don't mind me asking and if you're in pelvic floor physical therapy?

I haven't tried botox yet, I'm a bit scared by the idea.. an no doctor has suggested it yet, so I'm guessing it's kind of last resort? I've been waiting to be referred for PT, but so far no luck..

I am in touch with several people who have tried the Botox and my p t has someone who's getting Botox this week and she's going to keep me posted on how they do

..I will say the physical therapy has been a tremendous support and help and really taught me about the pelvic floor ....after 5 months of going once a week I am now able to do my own trigger points with a wand that she had me get so the muscles are a lot more relaxed in there now and she did external internal and mobilization with me

Is it literally just pressing these specific trigger points with the wand? Sorry, I have absolutely no idea how it works

Yes for 30 s conds and not too much pressure... You have to look at it like a clock 12 being the top of the uterus cervix area 6 being the vaginal or rectal opening whichever area working on and you work around 2345 or 8 9 10 11 but you never work on 12 or 6 I hope that I made that fairly clear. An it should be done every or every other day...

I have found cyclobenzaprine to be helpful and the doctor now gave me gabapentin but I haven't tried it yet I am however using Valium suppositories which I find very helpful and I'm in physical therapy

I am taking so much stuff, but most of it integrators, apart from a few strong ones (I can send privately if you wish?). I'm also taking valium suppositories, but they're not doing much for me unfortunately. I'm waiting to be referred to PT, but the NHS takes its time..

I am so impressed with all these comments I am reading because you are all getting confirmation on your problem areas. When I first started this journey, NO one could say what it was. And I went to top-notch doctors. Just no clue. So, if nothing else, you’ve gotten validation on your pain.

I like the thought of CBD suppositories and will look into that for myself.

Can I ask where you are each from, and what doctors you went to for diagnosis? I live in Indianapolis.

I am from UK originally but I have lived in the US for 38 years.... My diagnosis was a long process of elimination but we figured out that I've been holding all the stressful events I had had in the last 10 years which I held a lot in my pelvic floor which caused unbelievable pain.... I'm now learning to relax my pelvic floor along with my physical therapist and muscle relaxants if I need them valium internal if I need it gabapentin if I need it so it took a colorectal doctor and my regular dctor a pain doctor and my PT but usually I find people on this site are their own advocate and they find out a lot of stuff for themselves because as my PT says doctors don't know much about this

CBD suppositories are the answer to my extreme vaginal pain. I, also, have a compound prescribed by my pain doctor but the CBD suppositories are an answer to prayer when needed. I highly recommend them.

Where do you get your cbd suppositories or do you make them yourself?

A company called FORIA. I have had PN almost two years this go around. They may seem expensive but at this time I normally don’t use more than 1 a week. I had to fight to get a compound which is Ketamine, Amitriptyline, Baclofen, Gabapentin and Lidocaine. I can use this daily but rarely do since Acupuncture has helped my stamina and pain. I have what I call my Pelvic Bag with me at all times. I take Gabapentin 3x a day and use Hydrocodone as needed.

I have the baclofen, lidocaine and valium suppositories as needed...when you say you have had PN two years this time around does that mean that you have had it at different intervals before and what do you think brings it on?

I had PN in 2015 for only 4 months. My PN was attributed to Vaginal Atrophy. It returned in 2017. I believe it returned due to heavy lifting helping friends after Hurricane Harvey. It will be two years November 28.

Yes I had the vaginal atrophy after menopause too..I have Ostaderm V which is a bio identical progesterone with a bit of theestriadol that I put on inner labia 3 times a week...that has been a godsend....I had seen three specialist for all the pain I had and nobody had mentioned urogenital a trophy until I went on the forums and found out for myself... I can't believe it's 10 years later and we still are having people being misdiagnosed with all of this stuff

Yes, the many physicians I saw had no idea what my problem could be either. It’s amazing so many thousands are afflicted, but not many doctors are interested in helping. I understand it is a complicated area, but geeeesh! I would hope that having more female doctors coming up might be an answer. Time will tell. In the meantime, we do have to be our own physicians. Good luck 💜
