    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 …

    Yeast..and sex..?

    Post  ilovebaxter1 on Wed Sep 28, 2011 6:58 pm

    finally last night I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend since this has all been happening!(3-4 months) No pain at all just irritation/VERY itchy after! I'm so happy it didn't hurt I was sooo nervous :[. But I'm beginning to think maybe my problem is yeast related? I've been tested with just a regular culture for yeast and have used creams to treat yeast and dermatitis..however, there was no yeast to be found from those cultures. But isn't there other types of cultures/yeast tests? I'm just SOO lost on what would be causing these sypmtoms (itching, irritation, redness after rubbing against underwear.) I had BV twice this year but it was the first time I ever got it way back in december/winter and then AGAIN when all this was happening after I took flagyl. My reg. gyno thinks its vulvodynia and I kind of agree..but sometimes I really am not sure what it could be? I've been doing the same things all my life with no changes..i'm just so confused Mad any advice?

    If there's no yeast on cultures it isn't yeast, don't waste time going down that avenue which I think we all have at some point! If you keep gettng BV it might be an idea to try one of the more natural treatments for it like Biofem gel for a week or so and see how that goes, also I have heard Folic Acid supplements stop some women getting BV. Do you have alot of discharge?

    Hm idk I have always had so much discharge all my life i never know if it's normal or not. Sometimes it is even a greenish yellow color that shows up in my underwear. I've always had this since I can remember. I know BV symptoms are a colored discharge and there can be discomfort but even before i started getting itchy and irritated I had this color. No stds or anything though so Idk...maybe it is BV related?

    I started getting BV in december but when I got it then the only symptoms I had was painful intercourse so I went to the dr. to see the problem and I had bv so I took the flagyl. it cleared up and sex wasn't painful. Since then I haven't had BV until all this started happening in june. The first two cultures I took showed up negative for everything but they gave me flagyl anyways (before they saw my cultures were neg) but nothing helped. Then my third culture is when BV showed up positive so they gave flagyl for the 2nd time in my whole life. The only thing that helped was it wasn't as red down there and the irritation wasn't as bad. No

    I used to talk to a couple of ladies on www.womens-health.com who sometimes had BV and sometimes didn't but had lots of discharge and some irritation, if you go onto that site and into the forum then the gynaecology section there's lots of threads about BV. Repeated use of antibiotics could be a bad thing so if you can use any of the natural methods instead it would be better (carefully though, don't apply just anything), double the recommended daily dose of Folic Acid is one, lots of probiotics is another, one lady found avoiding dairy helped alot etc.
