What causes severe vaginal dryness and swollen clitoris post salpingectomy?

Hi, I m Deesh Fermin Western Syd Aus. I have multiple fibroids and had been on primolut since January 2017, due to heavy bleeding and clots, I m on 3 mths waiting list for hysterectomy, last resort. Prior to that, I had unsuccessfully UAblation, uterus too bulky, and did bilateral salpingectomy on 23 June 2017 in one go. I was hospitalised twice during my weeks of recovery at home due to heavy bleeding again, I m back on primolut and my hormones and moods is all over the place, brown blood then fresh blood, that s where my GYN and I had a discussion and to remove my uterus.Recovering now. Recently, 1 month ago I also been diagnosed Crohns and treated with antibiotics along with PPI tabs for Hpylori Bacteria during recovery from ablation and salpingectomy. Question Dr. I m having severe vaginal dryness and itchiness. My clitoris is swollen too and it itches. No pain but feeling of itchinesss and dryness. Some advice here doctor. I have used caneston,for few days didn t work tried yogurt worked but as soon as I wash off, it itches again. I decided than to apply organic virgin coconut oil. Still feel itchy and discomfort. I have not see any dr or my GYN yet. I m over it. First bleeding then crohns now itching business. I have two kids and I m not seeing anyone. I have not had sex for 1.5yrs.Could it be because of antibiotics? Or my hormones? I really don t know..Some help here please Dr.Thank you.Australia

Hi,

You could have undergone hysterectomy in same setting while salpingectomy, for now You have to put CLID VL6 pessary in your vagina every night for 7 days, drink plenty of water to flush the infection out.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
