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."

Vestibular Pain and the Pudendal Nerve

The pudendal nerve enervates the genitals and if it is compressed, it can create genital pain. This is an excellent video that does a better job explaining the location and function of the nerve than other media http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfZCYSeWbcE by becool19571, a pudendal nerve surgeons.

This was presented at a conference that discussed related topics:
