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 …

Bleeding after posterior colporrhaphy (surgery in the vestibule)

Bleeding after posterior colporrhaphy (surgery in the vestibule)

Post  katinstras on Mon Jul 29, 2013 3:05 pm

Hi ladies,

I have a question, especially for those of you who've had a vestibulectomy or a similar surgery in the vestibule/vulva: on Wednesday I had a posterior colporrhaphy (in other words, excising a scar tissue that I had at the bottom part of the vestibule and stitching the healthy skin together), and since then I've been bleeding more and more heavily from my uterus. It doesn't help that the day before the surgery I forgot to take a dose of Utrogestan, which I usually take in this phase of the cycle. I'm worried about the bleeding but my doctor's nurse is not - she says it might be due either to the surgery or to the missed dose of Utrogestan, and that I have to wait another 2-3 days. Does it make sense that I would bleed from my uterus when the stitched wound is clearly outside of my vagina? Also, I didn't think that a missed dose of Utrogestan can unleash such a waterfall...Please reassure me?

Thanks for the reply, Alana, it's reassuring! I thought the volume of the blood discharged would be very different, no? Also, I thought that having irritating blood discharge there all the time would not be great for the suture's healing, but if yours has healed okay...

I dont know what you had but I bled for 2 weeks and you can't tell I've had anything done but I'm not sure what you had. I guess it depends on everyone. Do you take a lot of advil, asprin?

No, I actually take nothing at all (except for the progesterone in form of Utrogestan). As I said above, the doctor cut out a tiny (less than 1/2 an inch) patch of skin and pulled together the healthy skin, stitching the edges together (that's how I was explained it, in non-technical terms).
