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 …

pain clinic tomorrow morning!!!

Post  Sebby (Admin) on Sun Aug 01, 2010 7:22 pm



Ive got my pain clinic appointment tomorrow morning like 9.15am! Im suppossed to talk about my vulva at 9.15am!!

Anyway I have made loadsa notes, mainly from this forum...fanx guys for the advice!! I want to ask about the painkilling options such as the anti-convulsants, nerve blockers etc and also about physical therapy

I do hope I have at least an understanding doctor who even though may not have treated this before is willing to help!

Wish me luck ladies

Good luck Sebby, I'm sure you'll be fine! If it's any reassurance I've been prescribed Amitriptyline for my joint problems but I do find it also decreases the vulvar pain too (although I am like a zombie too unfortunately!) so painkillers of various kinds do help with the symptoms while we look for solutions. Ask them anything you want to and don't be shy!

good luck chick!!!!!!

Ive got everything crossed for you!!

Ask if you can get their email address...when Ive seen some people they dont mind and its good for asking any questions you might have forgotten to ask.

Also ask for their direct line, quite often ive found some consultants have about 6 blummin secretarys and you end up doing the rounds!!

let us know how it goes xxxxx

Sorry sorry...

Had an odd day yesterday went out after the appointment and fell straight to sleep on the sofa when I got in so now my neck hurts...lol

Ok well the doctor at least had heard of the condition, so thats a good start!

He said he has treated it before and wants to try nerve block injections first. I think I will try this first as taking the anti-convulsant meds scares me more. Mum has taken Pregabalin before and had a very bad reaction to it so Im a little nervous.

I have to wait now for my appointment for the nerve block injection. He said they give it in the lower back..Im scared!

Has anyone else had these? Does it hurt!!! I dont know why Im so worried Ive had tatoo's! My aunt said she has had it and it wasnt too bad

Also how long does it last? I was told 6 weeks?

Also he said if this one doesnt work he will try a peroneal nerve block and they also do something called peroneal nerve stimulation in St Thomas Hospital in London which can help reduce the pain? I will have to look this up!

I was wondering if there are also any side effects with the nerve block? Ive been too scared to Google it at the moment! I have been living in the 'ignorance is bliss' place lol

Im just hoping that it helps with the pain even just reducing it will do me. I also hope it doesnt errrrr how do I put this interfer with any sexual feelings down there hahaha

Thanks for thinking of me girls

Godbless

fingers crossed for you Sebby. Ok 'everything' crossed! Very Happy

Maybe they could numb the area before the injection? or cool it? when I had ingrowing toe nails (still do dohhhh) they rubbed a cooling, numbing gel on. Ask about that poss?

Do you mean pudendal nerve block rather than peroneal? The pundendal nerve is one of 3 main ones that supplies the vulva and is in the actual pelvis itself. The physio I saw yesterday said they can use the biofeedback machines to stimulate the pudendal nerve but I haven't actually had it done.
