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.

So frustrating!!

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 …

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 …

Pain after Vestibulectomy - Solved ?

Post  jen007 on Mon Feb 08, 2016 7:19 pm

Hi Ladies,

For those of you who haven't seen my more recent posts, you can type in "vestibulectomy" in the search bar to see my most recent posts on my recent new pain.

Luckily enough, I got an opportunity to be seen by my surgeon, Dr. Andrew Goldstein, this past Saturday. He examined me quite a bit before finding what he felt was the source of my newly discovered pain. He found a small lump under my skin, which turned out to be a small cyst - the size of a bb gun pellet. He could only find one and when he pressed on it, it cause me to feel the awful pain I had been sitting on for the past 3 months. He called it a "Skenes Gland Cyst" - never heard of this before. He told me they are actually quite common after a vestibulectomy, but that mine appeared in somewhat of a weird location. He removed it right then and there in his office. I had no time to think about it. It just happened - somewhat traumatizing, but hopefully worth it. The cut wasn't too too big, but did required 6 stitches. Similar to my vestibulectomy recovery, I'm on bed rest for a bit. The total healing period is 6 weeks. I need to ice it constantly and take sitz baths.

I hope this helps other women who discover some random pain near the urethra! He told me they're hard for doctors to find because they are under the skin and are not visible. You have to feel for them by doing a careful examination.

I'll be doing an update in about a month to let you all know if the procedure helped/ worked.

-Jen

amyhopexoxo,

I'm hoping that by removing the cyst, my pain will be over. He seemed pretty confident that the cyst was the source of my pain. In a way I do feel better knowing there was something to be removed, but I'll only feel happy when I know for sure. These next 6 weeks are gonna be slow, but hopefully worth it!
