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 …

I feel depressed and hopeless...

Post  Guest on Mon Oct 05, 2015 5:23 pm

Hello everyone, I know I have written my story before but I wanted to write it again with a clear mind. I'm 23 years old and never had sex. I never had any pain until 7 or 8 months ago. I have been in extreme pain and I was diagnosed 2 months ago with VVS. I'm on Lyrica 75 mg in the morning and 150 mg in the evening. I haven't experienced much relief though I feel maybe only a little better.
My now-ex boyfriend was kissing me and I was in my underwear when I felt a severe pain after I felt his penis. And since then, I have been in a lot of pain. Because of other reasons we fought and broke up, and I have literally been crying every day for the last 8 months thinking how he ruined my life causing me this pain. I know that I have to keep a positive attitude and believe that VVS will be cured but the pain doesn't allow me.
Is it true that VVS happens to some of us but is hiding and when something triggers it, it just happens? Excuse my English please because I'm not from USA or UK.
What I want to know is if I'm right that it is he who caused me this?
I feel so depressed and futureless. Does this ever go away?

yes it will go away, but not likely on its own. You need to fix it. Best solution? research, research, research, research. You will find YOUR OWN CURE that way. I did. Took me a few months but I found out that I had too much oxalate in my body and that I needed to exercise. I take calcium citrate pills now and don't eat spinach anymore. I used to have that stuff like three times a day every day.

Your ex-boyfriend did not cause you to have this pain, he only helped you discover that you have pain. I never knew something was wrong with me until I attempted to have sex for the first time. It hurt so bad that I knew if sex felt that way then no one would be doing it. I agree with "EverythingIsDifferentNow," that you should do your research. Before doing anything on your own, consult your doctor! Also, try finding a vulvar specialist or a good gynecologist who will listen to you. A lot of the time, women like us get written off from doctors because this disorder is so rare. I don't know what country you are from, but from what I've read on here in the past, it's hard to find a specialist outside of the U.S.A. You could also try going to a women's health specialist.

Again, don't try anything on your own until you've gotten the O.K from a doctor. It's really important to talk to a specialist before doing things on your own. This disorder is a delicate one and can be thrown off kilter very easily, making it worse than ever. Don't blame your ex-boyfriend. I know it's hard not to when after trying to "be with him" you started to feel pain. Try to stay positive because there is relief for everyone. We all have different ways of managing this awful disorder. Keep your head up and know that yo have a community of people here to support you.
