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 …

Semen allergy? Just when we were doing well, too!

Semen allergy? Just when we were doing well, too!

Post  Takver on Thu Nov 21, 2013 2:04 pm

I've been with my new boyfriend for just under four months, and having PIV sex for about two months. The vulvodynia, to my delight, has pretty much stopped. It used to be fairly general, worse when provoked by sex, and worse before and during my period. My gynae was thrilled to hear that I was in a relationship with a lovely, loving, talented, generous man, and said that in her experience, the best cure for vulvodynia was a hot new man. She wasn't joking, it turns out! We have been having lots of fantasic sex, and I'm enjoying PIV sex for the first time in my life! I'm even back to using a menstrual cup, having ordered the softest, smallest one I could find (Meluna small soft).

My period finished a couple of days ago, so yesterday we tried PIV sex. I was a smidgen on the tender side, nothing I couldn't handle with some nice lube (Pink silicone lube, our usual). However, once he came in me it started to burn/sting. There have been two instances where I think this may have occurred before with him, although I wasn't quite sure, and on the previous times it didn't hurt as much. He doesn't ejaculate often, he seems to have some sort of orgasm-separate-from-ejaculation thing going which I've only heard of in relation to tantric sex before (no, he's never looked into tantric sex, it's just the way he's wired). I splashed some water about to try to wash a bit, and then he went down on me, but it continued to burn/sting for pretty much the entire evening, though it improved just enough for me to come from the oral sex. This is lousy. If need be, he'll just refrain from ejaculating in me, but it'd be really nice if he could.

I've heard that women can be allergic/sensitive to semen, and I'm guessing that's what's happening here. Does anyone know more about it? Is it something to do with pH? Does it make a difference where I am in my menstrual cycle? Is there anything we can do to prevent it, apart from not having him ejaculate in me?

No it means your allergic to it put it on another.part of your body and see if you react. Some women are just allergic...

I'm not getting allergy-type symptoms, so it seems like more of a sensitivity. Due to his weird accidentally-tantric ways, I've not really been coming into contact with his semen elsewhere, but I was fine with it on my skin and in my mouth with my ex-partner. Anyway, whatever it's called, I don't want it to keep happening.

No, because we've been fine all the times we've had PIV sex without ejaculation, and we're using plenty of silicone lube. I've had sex which is painful due to insufficient lubrication, and this isn't it.

Apparently semen allergies don't necessarily show up if it gets on another part of the body, so that's not particularly helpful. They generally advise testing to see whether this is the problem by trying PIV sex with and without condoms, although of course that can be tricky if the condoms are causing problems. Since he rarely ejaculates, and does know when he's done so, it's pretty easy for us to know that it's the semen that's causing the problem.

It seems to be something else. I'm still horribly sore and itchy, in fact it's a lot worse, and it's several days later. Someone helpful on another forum suggested that it might be BV, and I've had that before, so it's a possibility. The gynae gave me a spare set of Relactagel (7 day course, meant to stabilise your pH, worked last time) to use if the BV recurred, so I'm using that, and having just spoken to a GP today, I've been told to use plain emulsifying ointment throughout the day, since I need something to help with the soreness and they don't want me on another topical medication just yet. If the Relactagel doesn't work, they'll come and have a look at me, and hopefully do a swab this time. Probably antibiotics, if it's BV or a YI. I really hope they bother to do a swab - in my experience, they just peer at you briefly and then come up with a diagnosis without doing proper testing, and then you spend months or years trying to find out what it actually is.

And incidentally, Alana, it is not normal to experience burning pain for hours after sex, and you seem to think that I should just refrain from having sex and be lucky that it's not worse. No. None of this pain is something we should just smile and put up with. The fact that someone else has worse pain does not invalidate the pain I experience, nor does it make it any better that I've had worse pain in the past.

What are you talking about? You asked about an allergy I was telling you what I knew. When have I ever told someone to just deal with it? Oh wait I haven't. I never not one time told you to refrain from sex that is not something I would say considering I have sex and went thru surgery to fix myself so I'm not sure where you get that information from. I said if youre allergic you should probably find out and told you what I Knew but never once did I tell you refrain. Saying the friction is bugging you.is legit certain positions hurt me... I don't really understand but ok.

But Maybe you should go to a doctor... if its yeast or bv you'll probably need something to help having just had a yeast infection I can tell you sex hurt like hell so hopefully its an easy fix for you. Also if it is they have azo that can alleviate the pain and prevent future infections (supposedly). I just found it last night I'm gonna give it a go cant hurt right?
