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 …

Ovestin Cream

Ovestin Cream

Post  Vulvosaurus on Fri Jul 22, 2011 11:21 pm

Hi all,

I've been prescribed Ovestin (Oestriol) cream for my Vulvodynia symptoms. My Gynae thought it would be worth trying a topical estrogen because my problems began when I came off a combined contraceptive pill and started taking a progestogen only pill.

Has anybody else tried this stuff?

The cream comes with a giant applicatior and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to use it or just apply the cream locally to the affected areas.
What do you guys think?

Thanks

Ive not used it so if I were you I would give your dr a quick call to find out how to use it

My guess is that if you have mainly pain on the outer skin and maybe just within the entrance to the vagina then there does not seem much need for a giant applicator?

Check it out with your doc tho as you want to make sure you use it correctly

Ovestin Cream

Post  Joolibee on Sun Jul 24, 2011 8:51 pm

I haven't used Ovestin, but I use Trophicreme, prescribed in France. I think the two are similar. My understanding is that you should use the cream internally if you are menopausal, but just use on your vulva if you are pre-menopausal. If you are not sure of the instructions, you should check with either the pharmacist or the doctor.

Re: Ovestin Cream

I used a simalar cream it wasnt the brand name but it was Oestriol. My gyne just told me to put it on the outside and a little inside. This was when it all first started though and the Gyne was just filling in for the usual one, when she came back (she was completely incompetant) she said there was nothing wrong with my hormones because I was on the pill (when in actual fact the pill screws your homones up!) so I stopped using it. After much reasearch I found the pill could have contributed to my pain in the first place and now I have more of an idea about this conditation oestriol doesn't seem like a bad idea now that I am off the pill.

Hope this helps.
