MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

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 …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Vulvodynia/vestibulectomy

Post  Hfronckowiak on Fri Jun 26, 2015 6:02 pm

This is my first post. I never really opened up about having vulvodynia because I was so embarressd by it. I think I just need some support from someone who understands what its like to have this condition.
My problems started 5 years ago when I first started having sex. It was painful everytime and wasn't getting any better. The first doctor I went to told me there was nothing wrong with me and it was all in my head. I got my diagnosis from the second doctor I saw. In the end I ended uo at 5 different doctors to get to where I am today. I tried every medicine and procedure for this condition with no success. Two months ago my doctor said the only thing left to do is to have a vestibulectomy. This scared me a lot. To think this is the only option I have left to get a shot at a pain free life. And I never had surgery before so I didnt know what to expect.
Yesterday I had the surgery. They put a nerve block in so I didnt feel much of anything until this morning. Yes, its painful and the amount of blood that was coming out was a but scary. I took two percocets which helped with the pain but I feel dizzy. I'm praying this to be a success in the end. I've been so depressed for 5 years and I just want a pain free happy life.

I hope the surgery works for you and I hope you have a speedy recovery. I had the surgery in January so I know how nervous and anxious you must feel, it was my first surgery too. I had my second on Monday. Let me know if you have any questions but all the best for your recovery and the rest of your pain free life hopefully! Xx

good luck with your recovery! I was lucky with mine, it hardly hurt at all following the surgery, but it did not get rid of my problem. the main bit of advice i could give you is once you've healed more, massage the scar tissue with oil to keep the skin supple.

Does it look any different down there? I tried looking at it today and i couldnt see much, but theres something poking out that looks weird. The pain was pretty bad earlier but i took some painkillers and slept all day. Its at the stage where it feels like it will never get better

I didn't really experience any pain, I think I was quite lucky! I wouldn't judge anything until you have your stitches out. I looked at mine the day after, it was every colour you could imagine, swollen and bruised. From how it looked then, to how it looks now you'd think it was a different vagina all together.
My vagina does look different, but I think it looks better to how it used to but that's my personal opinion- my boyfriend says he wouldn't know I'd off had surgery down there if he never knew I'd had it.

I had to have a second surgery to remove my paraurethral glands, there the glands either side of the urethra because I was still experiencing burning from that area but so far so good Smile.

Hey, I see you got your surgery 2 months ago… how are you feeling?
I just wanted to add my experience.. I suffered for a couple of years until I finally had surgery (about 3 years ago I think).. it really takes a couple months to know if it worked.. it worked for me, but I still had a little bit of pain.. then i started doing physical therapy and that's what made me pain free! She showed me how to massage the little scar I had and that was very helpful. Anyway, I think the combination of surgery and PT is perfect! I've been pretty much pain free since then, the only exceptions being a couple of sex positions.. I hope you get to be pain free too!!
