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 …

Update on Women's Health Physio

Post  Sarah001 on Tue Nov 02, 2010 8:39 pm

I've had my third appointment with my WH physio today and it's gone alot better. I think we all recall my shocking resting tone of 20 that kept rising to 29 and then my last appointment where I'd had so many SI joint flare ups I hadn't made alot of difference? Well, the last week or so I've had a reduction in pain, I wasn't sure if it was just a temporary fleeting thing or if I'd managed to reduce my pelvic floor spasm and the only way of knowing was to get myself back on that biofeedback machine. I had 3 nasty SI flare ups at the weekend which also made me wonder if I'd reduced the pelvic floor spasm and that had caused them and I was right, I've managed to get it down to 12-14 so it's now at the level where most other people start from ("normal high" the physio said as opposed to "astoundingly high"!!). Obviously it's still way too high but I'm heading in the right direction at last and it doesn't jump up and down so much now either! And the reduction in symptoms is so good I could cry! I haven't changed my meds, still on 50mg of Ami a day as I have been for a couple of months so it's definitely not anything to do with that, the Ami wasn't touching the soreness before. I still get really sore with provocation such as friction or sitting, or using the bio probe, but if not provoked my pain isn't quite so bad. She was thrilled I'd managed to get somewhere even with my unstable pelvic joints and I'm really pleased, it's the first success I've ever had in physio in the last 6 years!!

That's fabulous news Sarah! You must have been working heaps on it to reduce by so much! It's so encouraging when you get to see results from all your efforts and hard work.
Stay strong and keep it up

I had another appointment booked in today with the WH Physio and I drove an hour in the ice only to get there and find the place dark and locked up! No-one has called me and the drive home was even worse because there was freezing fog to add to the problems by that time so I'm disappointed to say the least. I'm not going back until next year now so hopefully the snow and minus 10 temperature we've had here all week will be over by then. I delayed taking the pregabalin because I had to drive to this appointment too. Rolling Eyes Bloody British weather!
