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.

-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 …

Vulvodynia and antihistamines

Post  Sherylvp on Sun Aug 24, 2014 12:48 pm

Hello, I have suffered with vulvodynia from the first time I had sex until the age I am now, 25. The pain ranged from a mild burning sensation to throbbing pain and bleeding. I found it particularly painful when my partner ejaculated inside me, and the stinging would continue for days afterwards. I was also very prone to cyctitis as a result of the swelling. Originally I thought that all women must be suffering during sex, but once I spoke to my friends I realised that this is not the case. I saw my doctor, who took swabs and examined me to find nothing. I asked the pharmacist for lidocaine ointment, which helped enormously but could still cause a little stinging. I saw a gaenocologist who offered only steroid cream to help with the pain but nothing more.

Finally, in July of this year my mother in law told me that she had seen an episode of embarrassing bodies on channel 4 (UK), where a lady with similar symptoms had been cured. She has a condition where her body produced too much histamine (an allergic reaction) to scratching and rubbing. This was particularly bad in her vagina. The solution was so simple - a standard hayfever one-a-day tablet every day. Within weeks she was cured. I was very skeptical, thinking that if it was so easier then why hadn't the gaenocologist suggested it? However I gave it a go. On holiday this year my partner suggested sex without the lidocaine and I reluctantly agreed. To my amazement there was no pain. The sex was as I imagined it should be for most women- comfortable, stimulating, arousing. We then had sex every day for the 10 days we were away and every time was the same - no pain even if i was not fully aroused.

If you are suffering like I was, I urge you to please, please try anti allergy medication - loratadine 10mg tablets (over the counter from most supermarkets, boots, pharmacies, ect) Clarityn brand name in the UK. These will do you no harm, even if they do not solve your personal vulval/vagina problems so it is surely worth a try.

Thank you

Sherylvp

That would only work if you were infact allergic to something. Most women on here have problems way worse than allergies. But it can't hurt to try it. I just dont want someone thinking that its that easy to cure because typically it isn't.
