Post Vestibulectomy

Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:15 pm by infinitelywondering


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 …

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.

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 …

My symptoms to me feels like my urethra is always burning..and tissues around it , not so much the labia parts...if my urine is concentrated it burn to pee and it burns a lot for a good 15 minutes after...I get sharp jabs shooting here and there...when I'm really bad I had jabs in my butt...
In the morning things are somewhat calm down there but as the day progresses it get worse..
exercice is out of question for now..the more i walk the worse it is. Cant have anything rub me.

Thanks a bunch scratch

Hi hun

I can get pain just about anywhere within the vulval area.

it is mainly the Vestibule part but over the last 6 months or so I have developed stinging and tenderness around the urethra. It got so bad once I had to take a good look lol and it looked red (Im not sure if it was suppossed to be lol as I had never really looked at that part before) and when I touched the tissues it was soooo stingy! It kinda comes and goes. but of course anything rubbing the area when it is sore, makes it flare up. Im gonna ask at my vulval clinic appt about this

I can relate your anxiety about the vulvodyina diagnosis. The problem is that the diagnosis is just a description of symptoms and doesn't indicate the cause, so we are always left wondering whether some underlying issue has been overlooked. I was sure when I was diagnosed that really I had a yeast infection, as I had exactly the same symptoms as when I had them many times before. However, the last test came back negative so it was diagnosed as vulvodynia. I've since read theories about candida (the cause of yeast infections) turning into its 'red form' and burrowing under the skin, continuing to cause irritation but leading to negative test results and I think this may be what's going on, as the symptoms still respond to antifungals (e.g. drinking cinnamon tea).

As to my symptoms: I get itching or burning pain (which increases with any kind of contact) around my vulva and anus. I also get lower abdominal pain and digestive discomfort at the same time usually. Sometimes I get the UTI-like symtoms around the urethra you describe when peeing also, it comes and goes.
