Post Vestibulectomy

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

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 …

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.

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 …

Trying to have a Positive Attitude!

Post  aajoycex on Thu Nov 21, 2013 5:12 pm

Hello, I have had vulvadynia (unknowingly) for 5-6 years. I have read alot of posts from other people who have suffered or still suffering from it. Its been so interesting to see the simalarities in alot of peoples cases! I have had an almost constant internal burning, numb-like feeling down below since the age of 12. I am recently turned 18. At first, like many I think, I was convinced the pain was a water infection or thrush, when the pain continued and results came up negative, I was put on a bit of a downer! I visited doctor after doctor, all telling me it will calm down in a few days. I listened to the doctors and believed the pain was temporary, even though doctors never gave me an answer. As the pain continued and slowly felt worse and more intense, I had more trips to the doctors- all hope still there!!! I was given loads of advice: wear cotton knickers, avoid fragranced products, dont overly clean down there (as am sure you will agree, it can really make you feel unclean), etc etc. I clung onto the advice and followed it to the T. As I got to around 14 the pain still there, I was sent for vaginal examinations at least 4 times that year. Which all concluded I was healthy. You would think it was a relief but I just wanted to know what was wrong with me! As I started to grow more frustrated with being sent from one dr to the other, with no answers. A year passed and I had tried all creams in the book. I was sent for scans which revealed I had polycystic ovaries, I was reassured this wasnt causing my pain. Doctors then tried me on microgynon the contraceptive pill, and later Femodette. Both made me very ill so I stopped taking them. This was to control my hormones however they did not make a change. I was prescribed Gabapentin, which I was reluctant to try. After a few years, I was put in to have investigative surgery as the pain was intense and effecting my mental health and wellbeing. The results came back that I was healthy. At first I was relieved- thinking of disasters that they might tell me. But then the pain set in and so did my disappointment! Still no answers! Before my op, my gynacolagist muttered around the word 'vulvadynia' and said it could possibly be my condition. I have to be honest and say positivity around this subject isnt my strong point and Ive found that difficult! I have had acupunture, physiotherapy to no avail. my doctor said it is unusual for women my age group to suffer with vulvadynia. I am currently going back on Gabapentin and seeing a specialist in January. I have had enough of this awful condition. My head and my body are fed up! I have booked myself a appointment to try attend cognitive behavioural therapy which helps you manage the way you deal with situations. I was skeptical after turning down physco sexual conselling I was offered by my gynaecologist(seem to think its all in your head?), but I would definitely recommend. Thank you.for reading my story. I would love feedback to my massive rant, a big weight has just been lifted!!!

1. systemic yeast?
2. it could be pudendal neuralgia
3. ever had a biopsy taken?
4. does your vulva hurt at all?
5. where is the numbness you talk about?
6. you poor thing, so young! I can relate
7. how bad is the pain on a scale from 1 to 10?
