    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 …

    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 …

    Sanitary towls, panty liners and tampons

    Post  Sebby (Admin) on Wed Jul 21, 2010 7:44 pm


    Hi Girls

    Have you found that you can only use certain brands/types of Sanitary protection?

    I dont use tampons, never liked them far to uncomfortable and I wouldnt even bother now with the pain.

    I tried Natra Care and had to order them online as they are 100% cotton and orgainic, didnt make a difference and also tried boots cottons.

    I dont even bother with panty liners anymore

    Recently I have found that I can use Always Silk with the most comfort.

    Only a couple of months ago I forgot to buy the Silk and was at work and only had normal towls so I took the chance and I was in so much pain! I went back to the Silk but was then in pain for 2 weeks straight!

    These last two periods I have only used Silk and have not had the pain I had then. In fact during and after my period I have had at least half the pain I had when using other pads.

    Its maybe cos they are soft?

    I use Natra Care panty liners and tampons if I can face a tampon but I stopped using Always because they are apparently the worst brand for chemicals. I changed to Bodyform which don't have that horrible waxy chemical filled layer on the top. I'm not sure it's made any difference whatsoever which ones I use though!
