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

-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 …

In desperate need of suggestions for natural remedies

Post  Becca36 on Mon Jan 12, 2015 3:13 pm

Hi, everyone i am new to this forum but not to vulvodynia i have had this condition seince i was 6 yrs. old on and off it turned into a cronic condition after the birth of my first child when i was 17 i am now in my mid. thirties i have delt with condition every day seince i have been to numerous Dr.'s over this condition and have been put on many different antidepressants they have helped somewhat for the pain but they all cause me to have horrible heart burn and have had to stop taking them i told my current Dr. about this and she just shrugged it off and told my to try antiacids which don't really help much.So my question is has anyone ever tried St. John's wort for vulvodynia i was reading it is supposed to be comparible to prozac i am on nothing but lidocain ointment to dull the pain please if anyone has some natural remedies that really worked for them i would be greatful if you would share any suggestion's i am in really bad pain it feels like burning acid down there constantly .Thanks

Re: In desperate need of suggestions for natural remedies

Hi, sounds like you need to find a proper vulva specialist. Can I ask if you have had your hormones tested over a month, testing your levels every week of your cycle? It may be hormonal, especially seeing as it has gotten worse after having a child. I have had this for 2 years, and 14 doctors later, a good doctor finally did a proper hormone test, which showed my estrogen is low, FSH and LH are too high and I have Polycystic Ovaries. And possible endometriosis on top of that. Unfortunately for me, endometriosis feeds and grows on estrogen so I can't have HRT until I undergo an operation to see if I have endo and remove it if it's there, along with any other problems that may be causing my vulvodynia. Have you been to see a good naturopath? Lidocaine gel is the only thing that gives me any relief.

Go alkaline!

Post  Lulu on Tue Jan 13, 2015 6:09 pm

Hi Becca!

I've been dealing with this for 6 years. Tried most everything. Stumbled on a post about pH and urine testing. Sure enough, my urine is VERY acidic. So i started being my own guinea pig and testing my urine as I tried different foods, supplements. I am absolutely helped by adding alkaline foods and reducing acidic foods. I can even have full days with no pain. And as soon as I eat chocolate or pasta, etc. the burning comes back. So, perhaps this is something you should give a try. There is lots of good info out there. I like the website alkalinesisters dot com, tho I don't take my diet to their extreme (maybe I should!).

I don't eat much meat or dairy anyway, but I love carbs, coffee and chocolate. So, I have reduced intake of these things and increased veggies and green drinks. I add SuperFood (herbdoc dot com) to my Pea Protein (Nutrasumma) shake. I take Spirulina capsules with meals. And CUCUMBERS are super alkalizing, so I try to eat them often.

It's worth a shot. I wish you relief!! -Oh! Another easy way to reduce acidity is to take a little baking soda in water (1/2 tsp) but this you need to do AWAY from food, a few hours away. Good luck to you! I hope this is helpful!
