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 …

Hi, I was searching the internet and came across this story of a lady who had vaginal burning she described her pain as feeling like acid being on her skin down there as a constant feeling especially after urinating and she said she would get heartburn all the time so she thought that it might be high acid levels.So she went to a dermatologist and the dr. said they should do acid level test and sure enough she had high acid levels .I felt like she was describing my symptom's of feeling like acid is being pored on my skin I feel like I might have high acid to I get heartburn quite often to.If there anyone who has had high acid levels reading this and is now cured or at least your symptoms have let up some please would you let me know what has worked for you .

I have chronic gastritis but it arrived a few years after the V so not sure it's connected with me.

That is what mine feels like! Right now it's hard to cope with. How do you test acid levels? My blood and urine is fine (except a bit iron deficient but I take supplements & Fybogel)

If you're referring to low-oxalate diet, my gyno strongly opposed the idea when I asked him that I wanted to support my current treatment with low-oxalate diet.
He said that the recent researches stated that the amount of oxalate crystals in urine of women who suffer from V are the same as the healthy women.
As to his opinion, this's a multi-disciplinary condition. It can be caused by sensitive nerve endings or pelvic floor disorder or hormonal imbalance. There's no certain and proved reason for this condition for now so, the treatment's supposed to be combo.

Re: High acid level's causing vaginal burning

Post  cupcake25 on Tue Oct 08, 2013 8:21 pm

I tend to have a lot of issues with acidic stomach pains. Sometimes it feels like my stomach is on fire, or someone dumped battery acid down my throat. I have noticed a connection between these flare ups and my v pain, which is burning at the entrance. Not only do I have these problems, but I notice I have an acidic smell in general (sorry, it's gross), to my sweat. I'm beginning to believe these are connected in some way, but I'm not sure what's causing it or what to do. Sparkling water and Zantac help my stomach but I'm not sure about the v pain. Once it flares it's tough to control

cupcake25 have you ever tried drinking kefir? If you drink natural kefir every day, it'll definitely sooth and balance your stomach.

Hi burning! Thank you for the suggestion. I've never tried kefir. It's a dairy product, right? Unfortunately I am lactose intolerant Sad

Hi cupcake, I'm sorry for you Sad
Kefir is a yoghurt like product and it's very rich in terms of probiotics. It cures candida and it's also recommended for patients suffering from reflux.
Maybe you can find lactose free kefir. I hope you'll get better asap.

Well it makes sense to me because our mucous membranes are all connected. I found this study very promising, so i am going to try the Sea Buckthorn oil. Can't hurt.

I suffer from severe indigestion/reflux too. Nowhere near as bad since I got onto a product by a company called Bioceuticals, "Intestamine". It contains Slippery Elm which is great for stomach issues and helping repair the lining of the stomach caused by indigestion issues. That accompanied with Metagenics "Gastro-Aid" capsules, made such a big difference.

I have occasionally had heartburn and an unpleasant sour taste in my mouth, i wonder if this could be acid reflux ?? and if that could connect to the vaginal burning... do you know how i could ask for an acid test at the docs? Im in UK
