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


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 …

I saw a commercial for how you can wax it all off yourself and it won't ever grow back. I am so desparate I almost ordered a case of it Smile. Isn't there a pill to take that will get rid of it forever? Can't I pluck it out piece by piece? Smile UGH UGH UGH UGH. Where it hits my thighs sends me through the roof. I would prefer to walk super bull-legged so the legs don't touch. Sorry, had to get that off my chest.

Shaved Kitty

Post  lavrose on Sun Sep 09, 2012 8:54 pm

Well I dont shave my kitty, (heck no!!!) as it causes me to be even more prone to yeast and vaginal infections, I just trim it down, and shave the sides so I look good in a bathing suit. Ive gone as far as a landing strip but a wide one (lol!!).

Guys criticize me over this but who cares!!! NOBODY shaved back in the olden days and no one cares, if someone is really into you, they wont really care, right??

Dont get me wrong, a shaved kitty is Hot, and I dont know how other women do it (then again, I dunno how a women can have sex 3 times a day, everyday, as my kitty would be so sore Embarassed Sad ),
but I just cant do it. Ive got too many problems, plus Im half Jewish and I have really thick hair, so its a pain, when I DID shave, and it was tryin to grow back, it would like chafe me, and it was very uncomfortable and I was aware of it all the time.

I always hated mine. I have olive coloured skin and the blackest of black hair which always seemed massively thick!

I used to shave it all off, or sometimes leave a strip, but it would start to grow back the very next day so it was only smooth for one night, and it was so painful and sore when it came back through. Why on Earth there isn't a shaving relief cream for women is beyond me.

Anyway, I went from that to waxing. It was quite expensive but lasted a lot longer and was sooo smooooooth afterwards.

I got fed up of that eventually too though. The idea of having to go through all that hassle for the rest of my life drove me insane. I wanted to look nice in cute knickers and not worry about if there's any hair there or not.

So... Now I've had laser hair removal. I'd looked at it and researched it for months but knew I'd never be able to afford it. It was £190 per session, and you have to have 6-8 sessions 6 weeks apart. How crazy!

Fortunately they had an offer on so now I've been able to afford it. I'm two sessions in and I've hardly got any hair growth at all already. I'd definitely recommend it in an instant. And if you're going to go down the permanent route then I'd got for that instead of anything you can get in the shops. It's a sensitive area and you don't want to mess up your hair for life. You could end up all patchy!

I hope this is of use, and gooood luck!

Pubic hair

Post  Rainy Day on Mon Sep 10, 2012 8:47 pm

I just did a horrible thing...I ended up shaving it since it was driving me so nuts. Ugh...the pain with it growing back is excruciating. Has anyone else done something this stupid? And, how long of a flare did it create? I slept about 20 min last night. And, I have red bumps down there now. This crap never ends.

I need a head count! How many girls hate their pubic hair

Post  Sunflower82 on Tue Sep 11, 2012 6:30 am

Yep, I am one of those people! Not really discussed with anyone before. I have always tried to keep it nice a tidy, I use trimmers to keep it short. Which I have been doing for years with v and was never a problem untill the last year as my v symptoms got worse this became a nightmare. Problem is as it no longer looks tidy I always end up by doing it again, then I regret it as it itches like mad, walking down the street with the urge to scratch of all my skin. So would love to get rid of it all.

Laser hair removal treatment is the best thing if you want a hair less and smooth skin. it works by acting inside the dermis layer of skin so the results are very long-lasting. Its also safe and very comfortable.
