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,

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 …

My story (prev and now)

Post  xmandi88x on Mon Apr 22, 2013 2:05 pm

Hi there,

When i was 21 i suffered with Vulvodynia, Basically my vagina was so sore and burning, my thighs and also my bum cheeks and just under them would also be very sore and would burn, i would get a gel type discharge and then every so often i would spot a little bit of blood but this would be more pinkish then when you had your period and also would from time to time get a brown discarge. i went to doctors who didnt know what was up so referred me to the gyno's. It was them who told me i had Vulvodynia and was perscribed Amitriptyline. over thext 2 years i upped my dose and reached 70mg. I changed alot of things like no perfumed shampoo / conditioner / body scrubs etc i only ever wore cotton underwear and soft clothing that wouldnt irritate my body. Within time i became cured and didnt suffer with it for nearly 2 years however the past week and half it has all come back again. I became ill last year and am currently suffering with another condition which is quite rare so not sure if the medication im on for it has triggered it or whether its just because my body is so run down. Im due back at docs tomorrow to see if i can be referred back to gyno or to get the amitriptyline back but i do know that this medication im on at the moment may not be suitable with ami. Does anyone have any tips on how to help with the burning. I am currently off work at the moment due to the other illness i have but cant believe i now i have this on top it too. I could tell something was wrong with my body over the last couple of weeks as i was feeling pins and needles, burning arms, funny feelings in my body, joints ached and the gel type discharge again (very clear discharge).

Please note that you can get better as i did im just annoyed its come back when i thought that aspect was completely in the past. x

Get some lidocaine from your doctor it will burn when putting it on, but it quickly numbs it. You can also get a compound of that amitryptaline (sp) and gabapentin mixed with lidocaine assuming you're in the states. You could try a warm bath with nothing in it, if anything that will relax you. What worked for me was PT she taught me how to do exercises to relieve muscle tension. Other than that it sucks!

Can I ask what the other rare condition is? You don't have to say if you don't want to I just wondered if it might be connected.

Isn't that a migraine? I have that stuff too, it sucks, if it is migraines, can they do botox for you? I was considering it. There's also a supplement from vitamin shoppe I just started taking and it works called Migrerelief, I believe. If I'm misunderstanding something though disregard.

It is a migraine a vestibular migraine but not as easy to treat there is no cure over the counter meds shouldn't be taken for too long I've had this illness for over a year taking over the counter meds too much can actually cause re bound headaches I'm on preventative medication but it depends on the person and if it works for them I've only been on it 8 weeks so early days yet.

Hi There

I was diagnosed with Provoked vestibulodynia two months ago but having it for a bit more than a year. The curious thing about your post is that I also have vestibular migraines but I've been having them for at least 7 years, some of the doctors I've seen think that there's a link between my Vestibular migraines and my vulvodynia, something to do with the nerves sensitization.

For the burning try lidocaine.

I hope it gets better!
