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 …

Lidocaine and Conception??

Lidocaine and Conception??

Post  MrsP87 on Wed Sep 16, 2015 5:25 pm

Hi everybody,

Just after a little advice and I feel this may be the best place to find my answers. I have suffered with vulvodynia for many years now and can only have intercourse using lidocaine gel, it's incredibly painful without! Me and my husband are wanting to start a family but are very worried about the impact lidocaine may have on conception! There are no studies out there regarding its impact on sperm and I have recently been to a doctor and a specialist who said they didn't know the answer. Has anybody out there been successful in using lidocaine and conceiving? Thanks so much xxxx I love you

LIDOCAINE AND CONCEPTION??

Post  netsirk83 on Sun May 29, 2016 11:01 am

Hey MrsP87, Did you happen to determine if Lidocaine is ok when trying to conceive? Have you had luck conceiving naturally and painlessly? We are about to start trying as well and I am currently using instillagel so you're input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Smile

I can't answer your question directly, but I've been doing some research on this topic and the effect of lubricants. One of the things that I've discovered is that most lubricants have a negative effect on sperm motility. So, while not contraceptives, they can reduce the chances of conception. I'd imagine instillagel may also have a negative effect on sperm motility, depending on how much of the gel finds its way internally.

I was able to find the below, but I'm not sure if this is only specific to injections:

Effect While Trying to Conceive: Lidocaine is not shown to have any effect on fertility in animal studies. No human studies have been completed.

I agree with PainBlogger that the cream itself may negatively impact sperm since even something as innocent as the wrong pH can negatively impact them. I personally say give it a try with the lidocaine, and if you are finding it difficult to conceive, then consider trying without it if possible.
