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 …

spine fracture and pudental neuralgia

Post  sailor_moon on Mon Oct 31, 2016 10:02 am

Hi ladies,

Its been a long time since I have been on here. But I have some news for you all to share.

For those who have followed my story, you will know the 3 1/2 years of hell i have endured so far. for those who don't, feel free to go back through archives.

Anyway, I went and saw the only Pudental Nerve specialist in Australia. He sent me for a special Pudental Nerve MRI, which shows possible pudental nerve entrapment due to acute angulation at my s3-s4 sacral spine...the S3 S4 area are directly connected to your genital nerves! It showed on my MRI that i have had a fracture to this spinal area that was left untreated [despite me having constant falls and always having lower back pain, I always got ignored by doctors coz I was so young!], and the fracture has supposedly healed since but is angulated and causing likely entrapment of the pudental nerve.

Now unfortunately, I have already been rejected by one physio who rudely dismissed me almost instantly and put me in the too-hard basket, so I havnt had much help in my recovery. I see a new physio next week who will hopefully have a better attitude towards me than the previous cow I had to deal with.

At the end of next month the PN specialist is doing an injection of hyaluronic acid into the affected nerve, which is meant to help heal the nerve and help regenerate it.

Also looking into having acupuncture done as well, just need to find a good one who is willing to help me out!

Just letting everyone know where I'm at currently, and that if nothing else has worked for you, maybe pudental neuralgia could be the cause.

Who would have thought that a bad back could be the cause of your genital problems?

And another thing, please do not give up!!!!!!! If there is hope for me after 3 1/2 years ,I believe there is hope for all of us! Never give up, even if the odds are stacked against you.

Any advice would be much appreciated, and I would love to hear your thoughts and input.
