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 …

This is fucked up.

Post  noni on Thu Jan 20, 2011 2:26 am

Was told today by a very matter of fact receptionist that I will most likely see the vulvar specialist in about 6 mos. Great. When I asked her for any other resources, she replied with an abrupt and very firm NO.

I think I am living a real life nightmare. This cant be real.

Maybe if she felt my pain for like 30 seconds she would have more compassion. Today was especially bad.

Im barely hanging on by a thread at the moment. Not good.

Please help me sweet jesus.

The receptionist at my gynys office had a face like a bag of spiders and a personality to match. They employ these dragons as gate keepers so they can provide service in their own sweet time.

Six months is bullshit. Is there somewhere else? Could your GP or specialist have any influence? Throw the ball back into their lap.

I would bloody complain to the PCT, you may as well. 6 months is not acceptable for someone suffering a chronic pain condition. I also recommend contacting your local MP as I know others who have done this and have got results

Oh and Mouse this line made me laugh out loud!

I know I love that saying!

I used to say a face like a dropped pie... or the old slapped ass but there's something about a bag of spiders! Actually I wish I had slapped her... and then dropped a hot pie.... and then released a bag of spiders. Yeah that little fantasy gives me a lot of pleasure!

Hi Noni, are you able to find a womens health specialist? I'm seeing one in a few months. They take a more holistic approach so working on the mind/body connection, diet, exercise and all that shitzer. It's worth a shot. I'm going to look at my hormone levels as well.

Thanks mouse,

Yeah at the moment I am seriously considering the holistic approach, as I was never really healthy before all this started. I think my whole system is out of whack and thus I am more susceptible to theese sorts of problems.

Its so important to really consider what we put on and into our bodies. I am just realizing that.

Thanks again and be well.
