vulval biopsy tomorrow :(

This is a bit late to be posting on here expecting to have any comments to it but oh well...

I posted in the sexual health thread a few months ago about how I haven't been able to have sex because it hurts and seems like a blockage. Well, when I saw my gynae it turned out that the vulval vestibule (?) area is quite red. So I'm having it biopsied tomorrow as well as a vaginal examination under general anaesthetic.

It's kind of scary not knowing what to expect, but the weirdest thing is that nobody knows I'm going! I've only told my husband and my parents. It's so strange that people know I have the week off and think I'm just going to have a nice holiday and nobody knows that I'm actually going to be in hospital for day surgery and probably spend the next few days not being able to walk much without a fair bit of pain. Oh well....

I really hope they find what's going on though.

Re: vulval biopsy tomorrow :(

You may have Vulvar Vestibulitis. You can do a search on this board for older posts on it. I have it and it's improved over the years. Please post when you get the results and if you have it, I can give you some recommendations. Good luck.

Unhappy Re: vulval biopsy tomorrow :(

Thank you for your comment and support. It turned out that I had some tissue which wasn't supposed to be there, so she stitched it back the other way. She is still getting the biopsies checked though.

I hope that's all it was - it's pretty sore now so it'd better be worth it! Such an unpleasant place to have stitches

Im glad your surgery is overwith. I'm praying that your biopsies all turn out benign. I hope you'll stay in touch.
