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

-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 …

Pain has destroyed our sex life

Post  Scotland1984 on Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:58 am

Hey, I'm posting as for months now my Wife has been experiencing severe vaginal pain during sex.
We first got together 8 years ago and our sex life was amazing. Over the last couple of years she has experienced pain during sex, she went to see a GP who referred her to a gynocologist who examined her, found nothing but gave her an a numbing cream & diolator kit. This doesn't help at all.
It's got to the stage now that the pain has totally put my Wife off all aspects sex, she doesn't feel sexy at all and dreads having intercourse, which I totally understand. We hardly ever have sex compared to what we did and she said she only does it for me, which is the last thing I want. As much as I appreciate she put herself through the pain, I felt awful during & after sex, it's horrible knowing she is in agony and just wanting it over asap, that's not the sex life I want for both of us.
I got researching on the net & discovered Vulvodynia and it sounds like that is what she has. I'm going to suggest taking pentatrive sex off the table till we sort this out.
She is willing to go see a gyno again but worried that because they can't see anything they won't do anything. It's such a horrible thing to go through this and must be a million times harder for her but end of the day I want to support her, get this fixed and get back to enjoying pain free loving sex!
Reading over a few posts I'm guessing it's going to be a case of trying different pills, pelvic floor excercises, counselling & finding what works for her.

There are some good books on the subject you might want to look at. It can be helpful to inform yourselves as much as possible which it seems like you're already well on the way to doing. Amy Stein - Heal Pelvic Pain, Heather Jeffcoat - Sex Without Pain, are a couple. If you can find a women's health/specialist pelvic pain physiotherapist in your area then that might be very useful too. The physio can advise on the best way to use dilators and relax the pelvic floor muscles.

Does your wife have pain at any other times? i.e. without contact to the area?

Thanks so much! I'll look into those books. The pain is just during intercourse, worse right at the start
