How effective is the surgery for Vulvar Vestibulities Syndrome? How much does it cost?

Re: Vulvar Vestibulities Syndrome

The surgery helps most women who have it, but it should be a last resort after trying medicines and maybe physical therapy.

The cost of surgery varies a lot, but I would think several thousand dollars.

Does your partner have VV? Has she seen a vulvar specialist? What's been tried already?

Re: Vulvar Vestibulities Syndrome

Her OBGYN suggested to see a specialist because the OBGYN thinks VV is the problem.

The OBGYN started us with lubricants, then gabapentin 6 % vaginal cream, and lastly a numbing cream. The numbing cream is not really to my partner's liking.
