Partial Vestibulectomy

Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:44 pm by JGD13

Hi all i am new here.
I had a partial vestibulectomy 21/7 for my provoked vulvodynia.
After a painful few days and feeling quite uncomfortable it seemed to get better. 1 week after i noticed some white stuff and gloopy discharge, it wasnt smelly or itchy but i got a check up at the gp surgery and the doctor said the stitches looked fine and i could just have a touch of thrush. He said this is …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

New to the site and just had a vestibulectomy

Fri Aug 04, 2017 12:19 am by Hopeitworks

Hello Everyone,

I have been suffering from vulvodynia for years! So I decided to go ahead and have vestibulectomy on July 28, 2017. I really wished I would of found this site before I went through with the surgery. Maybe I would have been more prepared to deal with recovering. I just need someone to talk and I dont mind hearing your story.

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

However, today I came home and have done the following things:

-washed with warm water
-applied manuka honey to the area
-ensured I wash at least 3 times a day and dab the area dry gently
-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

As of now I am …

can anyone recommend a good dermatologist in LA?

Thu Jul 27, 2017 4:17 pm by saffron

Hi, I am wondering if anyone knows a vulvar dermatologist in Los Angeles? My problems seem to be external, but I'm having trouble finding a knowledgable doctor. My current dermatologist is pretty cosmetic based and I'm afraid all the products he prescribed actually made my situation so much worse!

I know there a few drs in Orange County/San Diego, but was hoping to stay local as even …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

I found relief with antihistamines/decongestants

I found relief with antihistamines/decongestants

Post  Eastview33 on Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:30 pm

I've found tremendous relief from pain using antihistamines that include decongestants. I had read about antihistamines so one day desperate to stop the pain I tried taking tavist d which was OTC at the time. Within a half hour of taking it my pain had subsided. After a few days it was gone. I told my doctor about it and he gave me a prescription for antihistamine so I could avoid the drowsy effect. But I found that didn't work as well. Then I realized that it might be the combo of antihistamine and decongestant. If decongestant reduces inflammation in the nasal passages why not elsewhere. Ever since I have been able to control my symptoms with this method and can go years without a problem. I hope by sharing this I can help others.

Hi Eastview - thanks for the tip. My GP also mentioned that antihistamines can help some vvd sufferers. It's on my list of things to try. You say that you can go for years without a problem - does this mean that it does come back when you stop using antihistamines?

I found relief from antihistamines/decongestants

Post  Eastview33 on Mon Oct 01, 2012 9:57 pm

Actually I found after using the antihistamines/decongestants, I could discontinue it after several days and remain pain free. I don't have to stay on them but could use again if I had a flare up. I'm not always sure what would trigger one. It was never one thing. But I did go years without any significant problems. It was just I found that it was the combination that helped me and not just the antihistamine alone.

relief with decongestan

Post  evanrude on Tue Oct 02, 2012 3:35 am

Can I ask what type of vulvodynia you have and often you have to take the decongestan?

This is interesting as antihistamines are a essential componant of treatment for some sufferers of Interstial Cystitis. The tissue in the vestibule is the same as in the bladder so if it works for IC why wouldn't it help vv Smile

I'm not sure what type I have but I take the decongestants continually when I'm having a flare up and after a few days I can generally stop. Sometimes it works better and faster than other times.
