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 …

Pregabalin/Lyrica advices please

Pregabalin/Lyrica advices please

Post  Jo44 on Fri Mar 27, 2015 5:51 pm

I am on a roll of posting today. I would like to know does Pregabalin/Lyrica take a while to build up in your system, as I've been reading through old posts and saw one which said that it needs to build up in your system, like Amitriptyline etc. My Gynacologist said it can take 2-3months to get under control. The reason I'm asking this is that the past few days I have been suffering from really bad tiredness in the mornings, even though I've slept well, plus my mood has dropped, and I feel low and a bit anxious at times.

The only side effect I had was a little dizziness the following morning after I first took it. Surely the side effects wouldn't kick in this late would they, I've been on it just over six weeks now?

The other things is I've stopped my birth control pills too, so it could be a hormonal thing related to that I guess.

I'd appreciate some advice please?

Hey there can I ask what your symptoms are? I've been taking Lyrica 150 for 3 weeks and it hasn't done much for me. Except yeah make me tired n dizzy in the morning. My symptoms are intense itching, burning and bad inflammation. Sad I also have a series of hormone problems.

Pregabalin/Lyrica advice

Post  Jo44 on Mon Apr 13, 2015 1:56 pm

Hi

My initial symptoms when this all started before was intense burning, soreness and redness. I started the Amitriptilyne just before Xmas, and that helped with the burning, but I did have to keep upping the dose about every 10 days or so! By the time I saw my Gynacologist at the beginning of Feb, I only had soreness and redness and some discomfort from my urethra, oh and some pubic discomfort too! He put me on Pregabalin at 150mg once a day, which helped me sleep, as I'd had been having trouble for the past two years with sleep, it V related though! He also wanted me to wean off the Amitriptyline at 10mg per month. I was on 60mg and I've dropped to 30mg as of last night!

I don't have any itching at all, just very sore and red down there. I think the hormone issues were related to coming off the pill, so I went back on it, and am switching to the Mirena Coil, which is being fitted on Weds! I'm seeing my Gynacologist again on Friday, so will be interesting to see what he says then! He did threaten me with steroid injections into my vulvar area at our last meeting, so not too keen on that idea!

Take care hope the Pregabalin kicks in soon for you! Xx
