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

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 …

cloth sanitary pads

Post  Delilah1 on Sat Oct 05, 2013 1:47 am

So, I tried cloth sanitary pads. I bought Glad Rags and Domino pads. I can not believe how much more comfortable my menses was this month!!! I have to admit the thought of using a washable/reusable pad was not appealing to me. Boy was I wrong.
There is absolutely no odor to your menstrual flow when you are using these. When I used disposable pads I would get so raw during my period. There was always a slight odor too with those pads. Probably because of the plastic backing. There is nothing like that with the cloth pads. Much more comfortable, no odor and felt so much more natural. I honestly never would have thought I would feel that way. What a surprise. They were easy to clean too.

Huzzah!

I found Glad Rags a bit meh compared with other brands, to be honest. The Domino pads look quite good. How are you finding them in terms of fit and so forth?

I don't know why people find cloth pads so scary - it's no scarier than wearing knickers, after all. Is it because we've grown up with white disposables, plus a strong menstruation taboo, and thus think the icky things are normal and the only possibility? Or are people afraid there will be a smell? As you said, there's practically no smell, and dry-pailing works a treat for washing them.

I agree Takver, the Glad Rags are not as nice as the Domino. The Domino pads are wonderful. So well made, soft and fit great!
Do you have a brand that you particularly like?

Honestly, after trying the cloth pads and loving them so much I became angry. Angry that society has made menstruation something to be ashamed of. Marketing scented pads and tampons to "hide the odor" when in actuality there is no odor. The odor comes from the disposable pads. I felt like I had fallen for one big lie!

Don't mean to sound so dramatic. Guess dealing with Vulvodynia has made me look at my body in a new way. I appreciate it more now.
