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 …

my name is Hannah and believe me i have been through it the last couple of years!
in April 08 i had a burning feeling inbetween my vagina and my wee hole. i went backwards and forwards to doctors for a few days and noone could help me. i got myself down and down. i went to the GU clinic and found out i had thrush in an unusal area and i got it sorted.
Ever since then i would feel a burning, rawness and sore feeling in my vulvar. i got anxiety from it and very depressed, i couldnt eat and lost 3 stone in a matter of weeks.

i managed to pick myself up away from those feelings, but i will still feel the burning sensation every now and again and i will not let it get me down, i went again to the GU clinic and they told me it was unprovoked Vulvodynia.

i am on amtitripaline and have lidocane as well when needed. i do suffer alot with thrush as well, so sometimes its hard to tell the difference, if its thrush or vulvodynia. it does my head in! so i go to the docs where she does a swab for thrush and in a couple of days i will know. sometimes is constantly on my mind but its got better for me and i will only have my moments with it.

ive been told its in my head, when it clearly isant. its not nice but i dont have it all the time and eventually one day it will go all together!

Welcome Hannah

Post  Sebby (Admin) on Sun Feb 14, 2010 11:16 am

Welcome Hannah

I know what you mean about not being able to tell sometimes whether its thursh or Vulvodynia. I had recurrent thrush before I had vulvodynia and many women do have a similar story.

Articles I have read suggest it could either be the treatment for thrush i.e the cream that eventually makes the skin react and casue vulvodynia or the thrush itself. To be the the safe side I try to aviod the creams and take the oral pill if I think I have thrush.

Im not on any treatment at present as the cerezette mini pill did not work and will see the gynea in a couple of weeks so will see what he says.

I have posted before about my washing routine that seems to help the pain. I dont let any soap get onto my vulva area so I kneel in the bath wash the rest of my body with a sensitive soap being carefull to not let any get onto mhy vulva then with a shower spray just spray my vulva area with warm water.

Take care and please continue to post.
