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

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 …

Nortriptline vs amitriptyline

Post  yoginimom on Mon Nov 10, 2014 6:50 pm

I was reading in the 'V book' that nortriptyline has way less side effects than amitriptyline and just as effective. Does anyone have any experience with either of these drugs? What was your experience, did it work? side effects? Is it worth a try?

I am diagnosed with unprovoked V, (though i am much worse with provokation) and pudendel nerve irritation.

They first ruled out all STD's and infections and even though i test negative for yeast they still think i have it, so i'm on supressive treatment for that and i'm supposed to be taking the nortriptyline, but i haven't started it yet. Then the gyno did the q-tip test to diagnose generalized Vulvadynia. My gyno works with a pelvis floor PT who she referred me to, and she diagnosed the pudendal nerve irritation. Though according to the 'V book' those 2 diagnoses often go hand in hand. If you haven't read it yet i highly recommend it. My gyno recommended it and i have found it really informative. I think it's terrible that they don't help us get informed about what this is. I hope you find a treatment that works for you! Is the gabapentin all you have tried so far?

So far iv done acupuncture , physical therapy , yeast testaments , antibiotics , steroid creams , other creams now gapapentin. I am also back on to birth control cliest but i don't know if hormones are my problem. Physio thinks tight pelvic floor tight muscles irritation of nerves same with acupuncture ( stopped these two things a few months ago) and my doctor agrees nerve related. Gabapebtin is helping makes me so hungry !!! Althowe weather it helps with sexual intercourse still yet to find out moved up too 4x100 a day.

Iv only read "why Sex hurts" it gave me a great idea of reasons and things to further ask my doctor . They suggested a pain clinic if gabapebtin failed ? Well the specialist suggested my doctors are very stingey with referrals lol !!! Are u feeling better yourself xxz
