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 …

Epiderm Cream

Re: Epiderm Cream

Post  Sarah001 on Fri Feb 18, 2011 6:30 pm

I've tried stacks of creams and ointments, in fact in the beginning I was convinced it was a skin problem but I know better now. I use aqueous cream to wash with as it's a soap free alternative and I have to use a little bit of vaseline or something similar during the day to prevent the inflamed skin from rubbing one side on the other but nothing I've applied topically has made any difference to the situation. They say it's a deep inflammation in true vulvodynia so topical creams don't get to it whereas if it's a surface skin problem obviously they help.

I was trying vit E oil..wasnt 100% though had other oils in it DUH! silly me

I ended up red and inflammed. (well done sebby) Rolling Eyes

Aloe vera gel seems ok though. used it only a handful of times though so time will tell

Im too scared to put anything down there at the moment as having a horrible flare up so its just cool water for me.

I havent tried E45 for washing but it has been suggested. Im too scared as anything seems to set me off! Its a lot of experimentation with this condition!

I use Simple soap to wash and a bit of Vasline during the day to stop the rubbing. I just wish this would go away!

coconut oil has anti fungal and antibacterial properties aparently...i use it when im really itchy n its driving me up the wall.

Ive used predfoam, 1% clotrimazole cream, prednisolone, lotriderm, dakatort, gyno daktarin, vasaline, clindamycin to name a few

nothing worked...only made it worse. apart from coconut oil

I've been using coconut oil this week. I don't usually get inflammation inside but hey ho why not join in the fun? I don't know what set it off. I don't tend to follow the no soap etc criteria because my pain is on the outside generally. Should be fun for physio this afternoon!

Naomi

I went seabuckthorn crazy a couple weeks ago...

got the tea, the oral capsules, and oil

Well...the teas healthy all on its own...good for your skin, so hey maybe my hoo ha hurts but my skin can be flawless...lol

Anyways...just not really sure at the moment if topical things can be of help to us...maybe soothe the discomfort...but I dunno...worth a go I say, ...it could help you
