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

Heya,

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 …

Possible Recurring Tear??

Possible Recurring Tear??

Post  emalita on Thu Jun 02, 2016 1:44 pm

So far this month my right inner labia/vestibule pain feels like a cut or tear. A few nights ago I think I actually felt the tear occur. It is deep in the fold of my inner labia, possibly my vestibule, and I can't actually see a tear. However, I used to get tears often back when I was still using those darn flushable wipes, and they were hard to see when they weren't buried deep in a fold; so just because I can't see it, I'm not ruling out that it may be there (plus I don't want to go digging so much that I hurt myself further).

Every month, a few days to a week before my period, this tear/pain happens in the same exact spot, and it won't go away until about a week and a half AFTER my period is over.

Has anyone ever had anything like this? Any advice would be great!

Could there be a connection between this tear and your hormones? It appears at the same time in your cycle.... I had tears like paper cuts last autumn, and they healed and did not return after i used local hormone-cream.

Re: Possible Recurring Tear??

The pain does only seem to flare the week before, during, and after my period. I've been on a bioidentical estrogen suppository for about 2.5 months now (Estradiol 100mcg and Estrone 60mcg), but the only thing I've noticed is that my cycle has changed from averaging 30 days to now being closer to 34-35 (I still haven't gotten my period this month yet, but it's on its way). I'm not sure if the estrogen suppository is causing this, but I am completely fine with having a longer cycle Wink

Prior to feeling like this was a tear, I had mentioned to my doctor that the pain seemed to go away for maybe 2 weeks out of a month, and he said the pain was due to the drop in estrogen before my period. I just find that so hard to wrap my head around because this tear/pain is so deep in my vestibule (deep in the space between my urethra and inner labia). I used to get tears all the time, and they would heal within about 3 days.

*sigh* I just wish I knew what was causing it... Crying or Very sad
