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 …

cold laser therapy seems to be working

Post  Melissa777 on Tue Aug 23, 2011 8:46 pm

so some exciting news (except i had a slight flare up on L side that lasted a few days)
the cold laser therapy seems to be working.. Ive only had 3 so far
but almost all the RED areas are gone
and my right side is starting to feel NORMAL.

I am not sure if this therapy is avail where you live, but I know they make the laser my Chiropractor uses in Sweden. I live in USA

basically how the treatment works
doc sets up laser for me and leaves room
I undress waist down, lay on the table, and use a pillow under my hips
let the laser beams directly hit my areas that need to be improved on
and whalaaaa its working

at the same time i do acupuncture
take phellostatin and si miao wan

But dont take those supplements unless your diagnosed with damp heat in lower area

I also am doing candida diet
agrisept
coconut oil
mineral supplement
vit d-3
fem dophilus
and probiotic for vaginal support with no FOS from renew life

finally noticing improvement... thank you jesus

of course- and prayer and healing through prayer
so stay positive

Im not really using anything topical
i find most dont work
except maybe my estroil topical compunded cream.... but thats really just to thicken skin

That's great, I'm not sure if what I had done around my hips is the same thing but I used to have some for of treatment on the lumps of knotted tissue behind my hips and it was designed to break it up a bit and reduce inflammation. In my case the results were short lived but I never got rid of the perpetuating factors so it couldn't possibly last long. Good luck and keep us all posted.

Cold laser or Low laser therapy can work. There are many lasers out there.
It depends though on HOW deep the laser has to penetrate and how strong the laser is. There are all levels out there. My chiros laser was VERY expensive and a very strong one.
I used it in the past when I broke my toe- and it healed my broken toe in 2 weeks - normally broken toes take 6 weeks- a few months to heal.

here is the catch
if you have a lot of MUSCLE mass on the area your getting cold laser- it may not work... because the light can't penetrate through that as well.

But since its my Vulva- wow I noticed a difference in only a few short treatments. I need at least 12 treatments to see most improvement, i have had 4

I looked with my mirror- redness is almost all gone

NOW here is the thing if your VV is caused by possibly bacteria or yeast even if they can't diagnose it- this type of laser- at a strong strength will work.

Its proven to work on killing- hard to kill toe nail fungus.

and its also shown to calm down nerve endings...
so all and all its def working- but you have to do a LOT of treatments before seeing results

10th treatment and feel so much better

Post  Melissa777 on Mon Sep 05, 2011 12:20 am

So yesterday (Sat) was my 10th cold laser treatment. Guess what I feel and look so much better. In fact, I went in for a check up with my NP and she said I am not as RED or INFLAMED as I was in July. I can actually touch my vestibule area now without it really bothering me... and able to use tampons! =)

Also acupuncture and the herbal Phellostatin is def working. Im also doing Adya Clarity for heavy metal detox =)

Ill keep you all posted- but so far so good

I also ordered my free sample of neogyn, ill give it a try to see if it helps
Im not using my estra cream as much anymore

=) yaya
