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.

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 …

She definitely sounds worth a try, just be careful if you lack stability in the pelvis that she doesn't overlook that and give you only yoga moves which of course loosen things more. Her holistic approach sounds good though, I'd be tempted by someone with that kind of experience if we had anyone over here. Let us know how you get on if you go.

NEW LADY I AM THINKING OF SEEING

Post  ria on Tue May 24, 2011 11:32 am

Hi Claire,

Yes go if you can we all have to try as many different treatments as possible. I am a holistic therapist and I am open to everything, I get myself into such a mess thinking about medication as I really do not like taking tablets but as we know when the burning pain is sooooooo bad we will take anything. At the moment I have taken no medication for 2 weeks because I have had problems tolerating Nortriptyline and venlafaxine, my consultant wants me to try Gabapentin, but the side effects worry me and the weight gain. I keep them at the side of the bed just incase....

Good luck Claire its worth a try.

Ria

Thanks everyone

Thank you for your replies. I am just concerned about yet another practitioner. But a she said on her website she is used to seeing patients who had seen 10 people before her. I would love to go but hubby and I are struggling financially at the moment and to be honest he is tired of spending money on treatments and not getting a 'full' recovery. He thinks it should just be able to be fixed and can't understand why doctors are so behind with it all. Sad I need to wait until after 30th June anyway that's when my sick pay and holiday pay resets. Used everything up so far from last year.

Ria, appreciate your input, I don't like taking tablets either. Wondering about coming off the pill but we hate condoms, plus even non latex seems to cause me irritation!! will be asking my urogyne about options with less hormones when I go next week. Not looking forward to this cystoscopy. I bet it won't show anything just like every other test so far.

Just had to go on nizoral for yeast infection, again…and treating hubby as well. Thank god it has cleared up in 3 days. That pain was horrible on top of v. Feel for anyone of you ladies that struggle with yeast frequently.

Hope everyone is having a pain free day. Mine is, so far minimal today. Smile

I know exactly how you feel about seeing yet another person, I've been through countless physios, chiros, osteos, massage therapists, pilates teachers etc for my SI problems and never made much headway with any of them and last September just got to the point where I felt all physioed out and didn't replace my physio when she left the practice. I still don't have one for the SI problem, I'm hoping once I get back to the WH physio she'll help me deal with that too.
