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 …

Xylocaine (lidocaine) spray is working as a temporary fix

Post  tinkerbelle2 on Wed Oct 09, 2013 7:39 am

I was in so much pain that I wasn't sleeping and couldn't focus on anything so I went to my local pharmacy/chemist. I spoke with the chemist privately, really nice guy, he said although he didn't know a lot about vvd he had heard of it. A lot of the options I'd already tried, so he suggested this spray. I'd tried a lidocaine gel before that you apply with syringe but it really didn't numb me enough and made me extra sore. However, this spray stuff is really helping! I just needed some relief til my next appointment on Nov 18th. He said this stuff is used by dentists and because it's safe for the delicate mouth membranes, it should be okay for inside the vagina. It even says in the leaflet that it can be used during childbirth. He said to spray every couple hours and see how you go. So far so good! I had a bit of trouble getting the bluddy nozzle to work but if you spray it a few times it starts to. It does sting slightly at first but then really seems to numb the pain for a couple hours. And it contains essence of banana!

I just got my referral letter today ! It says it takes 4 to 6 weeks. They will be performing a biopsy according to their letter.
Right now I am stuffing my face with cod oil (anti-inflammatory), B12, Calcium and Magnesium for my nerve pain and pulsating.

I am very curios if they will be able to help me, St Mary's is one of the few with their own Vulval Pain Clinic.
I'm perfectly realistic though...I have three problems down there: vaginismus, bartholin gland recurring cysts plus VVS.

Ahh I see! Hopefully it is closer to 4 weeks then. Bless you having 3 things down there to deal with, 1 is bad enough! Crying or Very sad if they are specialist I'm sure they will be able to do something for you! If I have no success with my next appointment I will be booking in with a specialist. I really feel we can all get better if we try and try and try!
