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.

-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 …

Post Vestibulectomy Vulva Pain?

Post  ehesser on Sat Jul 16, 2016 3:07 am

Hi Everyone,

I had a vestibulectomy (with vaginal advancement) 4 weeks ago, and last week I developed new pain not associated with the surgical site on the right side of my labia minora. My recovery was going so well and then this burning, stinging, throbbing pain developed and I've had it for a week now. Has anyone experienced this post surgery? Is this temporary or here to stay? The pain spot seems inconsistent too, like there's sensitivity on my clit and left side of labia as well.. in the past week I've been using hydrocortisone cream and have been soaking in warm bathes abs have tried acupuncture. I feel as though my pain went from a 9 to an annoying 3, which seems like improvement but it worries me as I haven't had this kind of pain before so I don't know if it's temporary irritation or if I traded in my provoked vestibular pain for now unprovoked vulva pain?! I'm scared. Anyone one else experience the during healing process? Does it go away? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi ehesser,

I've never personally had the surgery, but I've read posts from other women on here that have said it takes MANY months to heal (like 4+). I can't remember which post it was, but there was at least one lady talking about her pain being far worse until about 6 months after her surgery. Do a search on this forum and read some of the surgery experience posts (unfortunately this forum isn't really very active anymore).

I hope your new symptoms subside and you fully heal quickly Very Happy

Re: Post Vestibulectomy Vulva Pain?

Post  PelvicStrong on Sat Sep 03, 2016 7:02 pm

Hi, I had the vestibulectomy done on the 12th of August and I'm 3 weeks into recovery.

My doctor took out the stitches yesterday which was very painful and I just can't resist to look at it today. There's a really ugly growth on the surgical area. My doctor said that there's some swelling because of the stitches. It just looks and feels like scar tissues to me. I have minor hypertrophic scars from my laparascopy but my doctor said that the tissue on the skin is different than the mucosa skin on the vestibule so I shouldn't form those hypertrophic scars when it's healed. I'm wondering if you experienced the same thing?

Another thing I'm also a bit concerned about is that he did a very partial vestibulectomy, only the lower and the most painful part of the vestibules were removed. I still had some redness and a bit of stinging on the upper part but it's nothing compared to the 6 o'clock location. Those minor stings and redness were always there but went away when I used Valium suppositories for pelvic floor muscle spasms. I read the book "When Sex Hurts", Dr. Goldenstein suggested to do a full vestibulectomy just in case so the pain doesn't get worst going to the remnant vestibules but everyone's different and my doctor did a q-tip test b4 he started surgery so I guess the pain scale I evaluated made him determine which needs to be removed. Not sure if this is what ou experienced or any of you had the same experience? I'm a bit worried too honestly but nothing we can do right now.

vestibulectomy

What was your results of the vulva biopsy? What was the main reason for your biopsy? Do they numb you?

I had a nasty yeast infection after my surgery that I flipped out about, but that's all it was. Maybe its something along those lines?
