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 …

Want to give up

Post  Princess-j13 on Thu Jul 11, 2013 4:34 pm

Has anyone had their vagina and everything removed. I can't deal with the pain anymore. I've had it all my life and now it's so bad that I'll randomly start having spasms so bad that it's like I'm in labor. I'm only 22 and idk what else to do after physical therapy, nerve blocks etc has only made me worse. I don't want to give up on relationships but idk how to live with this anymore

Hey Princess-j13,

I am only 23 so i know how you are feeling. I have suffered since I was about 17 and at times it can be really hard. I have tried everything too but all I can offer you is hope. I suffer from generalized vulvodynia so there are days when my pain is with me 24/7. That being said, over the years I have learned to cope and deal with the pain. Also, my flares are a lot less frequent. Relationships are extremely hard but believe me there are guys that are completely understanding. I have been with my boyfriend for almost 2 years and he has never complained once. He supports me and will literally sit with me while i cry and eat ice cream because I'm in so much pain lol. Just have hope and try to relax. I have really bad anxiety and my symptoms are 10x worse when I am constantly thinking about it!

To anyone who wants to give up, dont let this thing beat you. Keep fighting and keep trying to find that one Dr. who can help you. There is some one, some thing, that can help you, you just have to find it.

Ive only had mine for over two years and I just wanted to give up. I would just take my pain meds and lay in bed crying, just wanting to die so that the pain would go away. I was in a constant depression. Then I turned that depression into something constructive. I was determind to find relief. I researched my VLSC, started thinking outside the box and went to many Gynos, Pain specialists, vulva specialists, etc. Just recently I had surgery done where The Dr. lasered my vulva and removed my Hymenal tabs. It will take me a few month before I know if it worked or not.

So what Im encouraging you to do is, keep trying everything, keep seeing different Dr.s, do research and in the end you may want to try surgery.

Hang in there everyone.

hugs to all
