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.

Post Vestibulectomy

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering

Heya,

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 …

Pain management - what works for me

Post  sj17 on Tue May 16, 2017 4:11 pm

Hi all,
This is a quick message just to let you know what has been the only thing really to significantly reduce my pain and that is CBD oil. I would recommend you do a bit of research before buying it however it is largely available in the US and in the U.K. through CBD brothers. It is much more effective than nerve medications such as Neurotin or Gabapentin etc. and has less side effects. It is completely legal as it does not contain the illegal properties made from cannabis which is the THC nor is it medical marijuana. It's a type of hemp oil that has been repeatedly effective for people with nerve pain, epilepsy and so forth. I have had unprovoked Vulvodynia now for five years; burning, itchy and soreness on my vestibule region and this is the only thing that takes the pain away. Happy to answer any questions or PM me for any advice.

Topically?

Post  amyhp on Tue May 16, 2017 10:17 pm

Do you put it on topically? My symptoms are similar to yours minus the itching. I have also had surgery which has increased my pain.

Hi Amy. What surgery did you have? And no, I ingest the oil - I put about four drops on my tongue as required. The taste isn't great but worth the relief.

Hi sarahjane!

Which oil do you use? I see five on the CBD Brothers website.

Thank you!

I just tried to purchase some oil from the CBD Brothers website and my credit card company denied the charge and is sending me all kinds of text and email alerts saying that there is a possible security breach on my credit card. I guess that is because I am in the US and not the UK. I must be an idiot for not being able to figure out how to buy this stuff without an international incident happening. Wink

I filled out the form on the website and chose the US for shipping. I guess I need to call my credit card company to see what is going on.

Hi Ladies,

I have purchased the oil and Sarahjane I am praying it works as well as you say it does.
I wonder if you can use it topically also? I just ordered yesterday, so will update as soon as I know anything. Thank you!

I finally got everything straight with my credit card company and my order should be here any day now. Fingers, eyes, and toes crossed that it will provide relief.

Yes - I also wondered if you can use it topically.

I have tried it three times orally and it has not helped. (So very sad. I wanted this to work.)

Sorry ladies. I didn't receive any notifications for this thread of forum. I ingested 4 or 5 drops in my mouth and it seemed to help with the pain dramatically xx

Just to add I have never used it topically. It might be worth adding a few more drops to your tongue and seeing if the increased concentration helps
