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,

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 …

I have always wondered about this...

Post  flashlight on Tue Apr 12, 2011 1:30 am

Hi, all.

Does sexual arousal or orgasm (from a female "wet dream" or external clitoral stimulation alone...not intercourse) cause you pain hours later or the next day? It makes those few seconds of pleasure so not worth it for me. It is just cruel, right? I can't have pain free sex...and, if I do happen to get aroused and want to go through with external stimulation to the point of orgasm, as it seems like a good idea at the time, then I suffer for it the next day or later on with increased burning. I have read on some of these posts that some people think that getting the blood flowing is good. For me, it just causes more pain. Anybody else have my experience?

Hey flashlight,

I havent been brave enough to test this theory...wearing clothes hurts so I can only imagine when that other type of activity would do to me.

But still I think everyone is different and I dont think avoiding our sexual sides is healthy either.

We cant win it seems.

I used to have this, before I knew how to use my muscles down there, before I saw a physio. I worked out that it was because for some reason my pelvic floor tensed during arousal. So when I orgasmed and tensed the muscles even more it caused pain. I have now learned to relax during stimulation ( it took a lot of work because it was automatic for me, always has been I think) and don't suffer with the burning the next day. Once you get control of the muscles you can feel when they are relaxed or not.

Hope this is helpful

Post  Zazu on Tue Apr 12, 2011 4:30 pm

Hi there,

I found recently (in the last 6 weeks or so) that orgasms have started to be painful, too. For me there is pain right when it happens (burning at the opening), followed by deep pain (uterine) that can go on for a few hours. I haven't noticed that it causes a flare up of more vulvar irritation later on, though. I think that the deep pain is caused by endometriosis, which my gyno suspects that I have. Is your pain deep or at the vulva, flashlight?
My physio seems to mostly do muscle relaxation and trigger point stuff down there - she hasn't taught me anything about muscle control down there. Aussie, how did you learn pelvic floor control?
Thanks!

Zazu

I've done some biofeedback too Zazu, it's worth at least having a couple of sessions. I had an incredibly tight pelvic floor (still have actually) and couldn't release the muscles at all at the start. While I was chatting to the therapist my pelvic floor was getting tighter and tighter and I could see the line on the screen going up but couldn't stop it! I really felt like the PF was relaxed and it wasn't at all.

I asked my physio about bifeedback, she seemed very dismissive, said its probably not what I need. Should I press this point, do you think? I want to try everything that might help. I might just ask her more about why she thinks it would not help. Has anyone else been told something similar?

Biofeedback is useful is you aren't controlling your pelvic floor properly, it shows you how much it's tensed on a day to day basis and what it does when you do certain things. If you think you may have a tight pelvic floor that you need to be more in touch with then it's worth a go. You can also get your resting tone from biofeedback and learn how much the tone is spiking up and down when it's supposed to be resting (PF instability which Dr Glazer is convinced it's critical to fix) I don't know why your physio is being so dismissive as they use it for all manner of physio related problems in different ways, is it that your physio can't provide you with biofeedback and doesn't want to lose a client to someone who can? If you want to try it then push, it's up to you at the end of the day.

Thanks, Sarah. I don't think it was fear of losing a paitient- she mentioned she had done it before and I think they have the equipment at the centre she is at. I think she just developed a whole plan for me and biofeedback wasnt part of it. I have been steadily improving doing her exercises and seeing her regularly, so I think ill just put myself in her hands for a while. Partly because I trust in her informed opinion, but probably mostly just because Im so tired of thinking about this stupid thing and just want someone else to make decisions and look after me.

the pain

Post  flashlight on Fri May 13, 2011 2:46 am

for me, the pain is burning. If I don't have any penetration, just external stimulation, I just get worse burning. So, that doesn't make sense, because there is no involvement of the muscles except for what contracts during orgasm, if it occurs...But, i get worse pain even if I just have unrelieved arousal. If I do actually have sex, the burning fire at the introitus is hideous. I have no internal pain. Just can't get past the threshold without causing agony. The outside is fine, the inside is fine, but the "mucosal" surface inside the labia minora is just red, red, red and on fire.
