WELCOME

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."

Surgical View of Vestibulectomy

I have not had a vestibulectomy, but this provides an excellent visual explanation for what the surgery looks like. Note that research on the efficacy of vestibulectomies continues to evolve. There are two methods: scalpel and laser. Scalpel seems to be the way to go. See the link by Dr. Andrew Goldstein of John Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland.
