Edit: I WAS CURED AFTER 22 YEARS! I had a vestibulectomy Dec. 2016. The recovery was easier for me than having sex ever was. It took about 5 weeks. I have included my recovery photos. Look for the blogpost "I'm Cured!"

I’m a great woman with a pissed-off vulva. I have “primary vestibulitis." Most people are uncomfortable discussing their genital pain in public. Well, I’m not…so, welcome to my blog! There aren’t definitive answers in medical literature to explain the pain cycle of pelvic pain and how to heal it - yet. My hope is that my 21-year obsession to find help for myself will make your experience shorter, easier, and less painful. P.S. Recently "vestibulitis" has been renamed to "vestibulodynia."

Surfboards and Vulvas

Today, my friend Liz and I are driving up to my parents house and I tell her about my new blog.

Me: So, what do you think about putting me putting a sticker of my blog name up on the back of my car window?

Liz: I don’t think it’s maybe so appropriate.

Me: But you have a sticker of a surfboard on the back of your car. Why can’t I have one about vulvodynia?

Liz: A vulva is not a surfboard.
