I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

Vestibulitiis surgery

Vestibulitiis surgery

Post  Coco23 on Wed May 03, 2017 12:31 pm

Hey girls.

I am 23 years old and I've been suffering from Vesti from the age of 19(the first time I have tried to have sex).
As long as I remember I never fingered myself and never used tampons due to pain and general fear.

A month and a half ago, on 16.3, I had a vestibulitis surgery after 4 years of suffering.
I went to my doctor twice after the surgery..last time was 4 days ago and he told me I can have sex now and that it looks great.

So I tried.

I still have pain in the vulvar area, a bit less but similar type of pain of what I had before.
In addition, the Veginismus is now worse than what I had before. Probably because I expected it to be painless and it didnt happen.

I am really sad and hopeless.
I dont know what to do anymore...
I thought I should do a second surgery with another doctor- but I read somewhere that it might take time to heal completely.

I am now 1.5 months after my surgery.. touching my vulvar area really carefully with my fingers and it is painful.. do u think its an unsuccessful surgery and I should redo one or is it just a matter of time?

* The surgery was done on the bottom area of the vulvar only since that was my problem.


Thank you very much for your time... hope to hear from you soon

Healing...

Post  Gill on Sat May 06, 2017 7:35 pm

Hi Coco,

I don't know whether you should have further surgery, but I can tell you what my surgeon told me!

I didn't have my follow-up with my surgeon until 3 months post-surgery, and she said the pain I get might still decrease further. I did have massive improvement in the area that was removed, but still significant pain in surrounding areas, which she said could be because of the way the skin in the vestibule heals, which can take longer than other places.

I am seriously considering further surgery, but will wait a few more months before going for it.

Hey Gill thanks for the reply.
In my case its not only the surrending area but also when I try a finger inside of the vagina..it is painful jist like the surrending area and a similar pain to what I had before. Maybe worse. My doctor told me it looks good that I can already have sex..and I tries few times but it only gets worse and burning after everytime.

Do you also have pain if you insert a finger or just outside of it?

Hey there, I'm not sure what you mean when you say the surrounding area as opposed to inside. To me it feels like pain on the inside; vestibule means hallway, like entrance, and that's what it's like. It used to feel like I was trying to push a flaming hot poker in there. Now (3+ months after surgery), its more like a heated needle poking in the specific places that still hurt. I have never had external pain, like on the labia, etc, like some ppl get. My drs held up a mirror and showed me what they were poking to see if it hurt. If your doctor didn't show you what the different bits were they were taking out, that wasn't very helpful for you.

When I manage to get anything through the entrance and inside, the bit that's properly inside doesn't hurt, but the entrance still hurts.

It still hasn't been very long since your surgery, so you should probably give it a couple of months more at least, and try to get a mirror down there to work out what's happening. I am planning to wait at least 6 months after surgery before deciding whether it's worked or not. People say it takes a year to fully heal.

You mentioned that you now have vaginismus; you'll know you need to treat that as well. I suggest you find a good psychosexual counsellor and/or Physio/biofeedback to help with that if you haven't already.

Re: Vestibulitiis surgery

Post  flick001 on Mon May 22, 2017 10:19 am

Hi guys,

I was wondering from your posts you mention the possibility of having a further surgery - what exactly is this? the same sort of thing as the first vestibulectomy?

I have just had the surgery and up to week 4 recovery. I feel like the pain is a lot better but not fully gone - i can't tell much though obviously as its only been 3 weeks. But just wondering if you know what further surgery could be an option if the nerve pain doesn't fully resolve?

Thanks

Hi, when I wrote about further surgery, it's because my dr only removed the tissue between 9 and 3 on the clock face. The other half of the circle that wasn't touched, and that's where my remaining pain is, so I'm exploring whether taking more out will improve things further. A couple of people on the Facebook group 'Vestibulectomy Surgery and Vestibulodynia Support Group' mention having a partial vestibulectomy followed by a total. My surgeon didn't want to remove the top because she said there are really bad things that can happen, like fistulas. It might be worth asking ppl who've already had both what they know about it.
