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.

Post Vestibulectomy

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

Heya,

I had my vestibulectomy (full) about a day and a half ago. I was very sick and poorly just after the op and experienced intense pain down there Sad

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 …

Newly diagnosed - Vulvar vestibulitis

Post  christine12345 on Tue Feb 26, 2013 9:31 pm

Hey everyone - thought I'd post an update about my story. After months of being pushed from Dr. to Dr and being on loads and loads of antibiotics due to misdiagnosis, I finally saw a gynecologist. She took one look at me and diagnosed my problem as vulvar vestibulitis (the visit was literally 5 mins - so shocking!)

She prescribed me Elavil (amitriptyline) at 10mg.

Anyone taken this medication / had success with it?

I haven't personally taken it, one of my docs wanted to put me on it, but it's an anti-depressant and I didn't want to deal with the side effects. I do hear that it works for some people relatively well, so give it a shot, it might help Smile let us know how it goes!

Re: Newly diagnosed - Vulvar vestibulitis

I was actually on Ami when my V pain started so they upped my dose to 50mg but it made no difference to pain. I'm still on that amount as it helps me sleep and what I will say is any dizziness is usually short lived so stick with it for a while to see how you go. The only side effect I get now is the dry mouth and you're not supposed to mix it with alcohol however I do and it totally knocks me out so you may want to go easy on alcohol if you drink.

Re: Newly diagnosed - Vulvar vestibulitis

Hey I was pushed from doctor to doctor too! and actually diagnosed myself before they doctor did but I havn't seen a gynolocologist yet so I don't know what type I have, I've just been trying my hardest to relieve the pain. I was on Amitritylene since June 2012 and if you take it regulary it does stop the pain however I came off it because of the side effects It made me sleep all day, effected my emotions and hormone making me feel like a human robot and also affected my arrousal...which I no longer have at all. So my doctor then prescribed me Nortriptylene which doesnt make you as sleepy however it didnt get rid of the pain for me so Amitriptylene was deffinitely better in terms of getting rid of the pain. I've also been given a numbing ointment called linocaine which numbs the pain. Hope this helps and I havn't put you off amytriptylene just wanted to be honest but it might not have the same effects for you and it does relieve the pain.
