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 …

My experience

Post  rosechar on Thu Apr 16, 2015 8:46 pm

Hello all,

I have been debating joining a forum like this one for a while, but the thought of discovering hardly any cases of recovery scared me a bit. I've been suffering with vulvodynia since the age of about 13/14, I am now 18 and it is still as chronic as it has always been. I wasn't diagnosed until after several hospital, doctors and clinic appointments. It gave me some relief knowing that the pain I felt had a name, but I still had to live with it. My pain is present all the time, although it is at its worst when I have flare ups.

I've tried various creams and natural remedies such as E45, Vagisil, Canesten, Aqueous cream, coconut oil, Vaseline, aloe vera and many vitamins to try and boost my immune system but none have helped me on a permanent basis. I also took Amitriptyline for a while and that didn't help a lot either and it wiped me out.

Any other easily accessible treatment method ideas I could try would be very much appreciated. I'll take anything I can get at this point as it is getting in the way of every day life.

-Char Smile

Hiya, there's a lower dose of medication you could take called Nortriptyline it helped for me for around six months and eased my pain a little. You could also try lidocaine or instillagel. The gel numbs the area for a slight while to give you a resting period of relief

My doctor has me taking a probiotic to promote vaginal health. I'm using estrogen cream at night. I tried creams for fungal/skin infections and it just about killed me. Honestly the only thing that helps is warm baths and ice packs. And of coarse ibuprofen for swelling. I've had vulvar vestibulitis/vulvodynia since I was 17 and I am now turning 21 so I feel your pain. I'm here if you need anything xo
