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 …

Could it be?

Post  quell183 on Thu Oct 03, 2013 4:06 am

So I've posted a topic before asking if anyoine felt the same way i did, as in the symptoms i have been having but im not sure. Im thinking maybe this could be a really bad yeast infection or something? Ive never had one so i don't really know what they are like, so maybe you can help me out?
I have a burning feeling on the left side of my vagina, i would say its like a really hot feeling inside. At my last appointment the dr said he saw discharge when he inserted the speculum (isnt discharge normal?)He did a culture and nothing showed up. I do get discharge, sometimes its really runny like water and other times its a lot thicker and kind of white. My vagina does not itch or smell or anything and i was told there was a little tiny cut at the entrance and the q tip test showed i was very sensitive in a particular area.I had gotten meds before but they didnt help. Im thinking maybe its a stubborn infection that maybe didnt show up in the cultures because i read stories on here about women who have discovered its just a bad infection. The only thing that makes me think it is something else is the fact that it is only on 1 side.
This first happened may 2013 so 5 months ago. What do you think?

Hi quell, that is what I am wondering too!

I have had thrush before and this feels like a worse version of that.

But then i don't get why cultures wouldn't show yeast? Ahh it's so confusing and frustrating.
Tomorrow i think i'll buy a canesten suppository and oral tablet and see if anything happens.

Yea it is very confusing. I read some women had to take very high dosages in order for it to go away, not just a one time thing. Hopefully it works for you. Let us know what happens. Good luck

My experience of yeast infections is they also involve itching and have a cottage cheese type discharge not just the normal milky or clear discharge. I've had loads of them and every time those symptoms have been present.

That is true...when I had thrush it was itchy but also was terribly sore and fiery internally.

No luck with the canesten as yet

Hello, quell! It's tough to say whether it's yeast or not sometimes. I'd suspect that if you had labs done and they came up negative that you don't have an infection, but you should be sure the doctor tested for different strains of yeast. The discharge you describe sounds normal, though. I learned the hard way that our body is supposed to produce discharge (I was incredibly uneducated and over medicated thinking I had an infection when I didn't). Having said all that, perhaps you are having vaginal dryness? Or it could simply be inflammation and irritation from medication- have you been trying a lot of topical creams? My pain was at its worst when I was applying anything and everything the doctors gave me.
