Post Vestibulectomy

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

Heya,

I had my vestibulectomy (full) about a day and a half ago. I was very sick and poorly just after the op and experienced intense pain down there Sad

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 …

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.

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 …

New YES VM

Post  emalita on Tue Jun 14, 2016 1:41 am

Has anyone tried the new YES VM vaginal moisturizer?

I've tried the YES water based lubricant in the past, but with my skin issues now, it seems to sting/burn too much. Plus, it sounds like they reformulated the water based lubricant, and women are seeming to report more irritation with it, which is sad.

The new YES VM ingredients (see below) don't sound too great, but as long as it doesn't produce that creepy white discharge like RepHresh, I would be willing to give it a go.

Ingredients: Water, flax gum*, aloe vera*, locust bean gum*, guar gum*, sodium chloride, xanthan gum, potassium sorbate, citric acid, phenoxyethanol
*certified organic ingredients

I haven't tried the VM, but I might be able to shed some light on possible reformulation of the lubricant. They changed the packaging a few months ago to a much more sensible tube shape. I haven't noticed any difference in the ingredients or the product itself though.

Do you find that the water based lubricant actually makes a difference with dryness on the vulva, or do you only use it for sex or internally?

I really need to put something on my skin to help it heal, and all my doctor wants to throw at me are steroid creams, which I'm not interested in.

I only really use it for physio exercises with dilators and recently for sex. That means I'm using it virtually every day internally (for the dilator exercises that is!). Some of it obviously ends up on the outside and acts as a moisturising layer but I don't apply it externally. I don't know if I'd have any dryness without it. I suspect probably not as I don't think the root of my problems was ever dermatological. It's difficult to say though.

Oh my. I just ordered this water based lubricant YES, myself. I guess we shall see how it does for me when I get it. I read there is an oil-based one too.

Re: New YES VM

Post  emalita on Tue Jul 26, 2016 2:04 pm

A few weeks ago I ordered a small tube of the vaginal moisturizer, and I just tried it last night for the first time. Thought I would post my initial thoughts on it  Smile

I didn't notice any crazy irritation from it, but my skin is overly sensitive right now, so the mild burning it caused for maybe a minute after application didn't worry me much (YES WB can do that to me too).

YES VM is thicker and less runny than the water based lubricant, which can be either good or bad. I apply it to almost my entire vulva, and it was nice that I didn't have to worry about it running down my bum when in bed. However, I have been applying YES WB to the top part of my vulva and letting it run down the rest of my skin so I didn't have to do a lot of rubbing or anything else irritating (doesn't take much YES WB to use it this way). You can't do this with YES VM. It just sits there in a gel glob unless you rub it in. If touching my skin didn't set off a flare up for me, I would probably say that I would appreciate the thicker formula, but for what I need right now, it requires too much fiddling to make it go where I need it.

Also, I was hoping that YES VM wouldn't cause dried "flakes" in my hairline like the YES WB, but unfortunately it does. It seems to be less, but I'm sure that's because it is too thick to move everywhere the YES WB can.

Since it hasn't caused any extreme reactions so far, I'd say I'm willing to keep using it Very Happy

Just an update on the YES VM...

I can't speak to how well it moisturizes compared to YES WB, but I do have a complaint for those who may be wanting to use it on vulvar skin. After having it on for a while, it turns white and almost sticky. I thought I was having horrible discharge, but I've now realized it happens every time I use YES VM.

It makes such a mess that I'm probably not going to keep using it for now. Not sure how it behaves if used vaginally, but I sure hope it doesn't create a white fallout like RepHresh (thought the website said it didn't do that but who knows).

sorry, you had such a problem. I have never had that problem. No whiteness. It just dries up and never had a problem with stickyness. I am referred to Yes, water based. I wouldn't use anything else, at least I haven't found anything else that works so well and feels so natural.

It's the YES VM that's causing the issue, not the YES WB. The only real negative about YES WB is that it can dry in flakes in the hairline.

Haven't heard of Yes VM, what is that. I haven't had any problems with flaking with the WB.
