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,

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 …

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 …

Experienced Vestibulectomy Surgeons in England?

Post  Kezz on Tue Mar 28, 2017 10:37 am

Hey everyone!

Wat are the names and locations of experienced vestibulectomy surgeons in England? The only experienced vulvodynia consultant I've read about so far is David Nunns but I'm not sure if he actually carries out the vestibulectomy surgery.

Thanks in advance :- )

Sorry it is so late

Post  infinitelywondering on Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:10 pm

Hiya,

Miss Gabrielle Downey in Birmingham does Vestibulectomy. She is retiring soon so better catch her quickly!

I know she still does clinics privately at BMI Edgbaston- it would be worth it !

Hope you see this,
lots of love

Thanks hun! I got an email alert for your reply. Since posting I've actually been to see her lol! I'm scheduling the appointment for hopefully sometime in October! Oh no I didn't realise she was retiring, do you know when she is? I have to pay for the operation because I don't have private health insurance so that sucks but I feel like it'll be worth, nearly 4 grand. But if that means I get my life back, money means nothing. Do you have it done? Lovely to hear from you and thanks so much for the reply lovely. Xxx xxx

Just had the operation

Post  infinitelywondering on Fri Aug 04, 2017 11:02 am

Yes! I just had the operation done on Wednesday... so feeling a little rough at the moment ! I'm only 17 so hopefully I should start healing pretty soon and yes, I don't think you can put a price on getting your life back. For me it's not so detrimental because I'm not at the age of having children and so on, but in the future it would've meant that I couldn't do any of that. I'm praying that the operation worked for me and i get better soon!

I think you should know that you won't reap the benefits of this op for a while- healing does take quite sone time. I'm giving it at least 6 months to fully heal. Then I'll start using dilators. It is a long process (and painful!) but I think it's worth it Smile

If you need any more help then please don't hesitate to message me privately !

Lots of love

Hey hun Smile thanks for reply! I'm a bit clueless on this lol. How do you private message? I hope you're not in too much pain but so happy for you that you had it done. I'd absolutely love to have a chat with you about it! Xxx
