Hi I have been suffering for some years with this abominable pain.

Putnams 'bony parts' cushion or Putnams 'Dr Huff' cushion - which is best?

Sat Aug 01, 2015 4:17 pm by Fielder

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie.  I live in the UK.  

I'm trying to work out the best cushion to get for my vulvodynia.  I suspect that I could have pudendal nerve involvement (the aching and burning pain is from vagina to clitoris) and I have rectocele and some tailbone pain too.

I have seen some good reports on older threads regarding the Putnams pressure relief cushions....with some ladies …

Dear All,

I posted on here back in March 2017 having just got a diagnosis of vulvodynia after a few months of relentless and acute pain. I was desperate, I was hurting, I was scared I would never know life without pain there again.

I tried creams, acupuncture, numbing gels, frozen pads, baths with various internet recommended concoctions- convinced myself I had lichen sclerosus, herpes, thrush- …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

Provoked Vs. Unprovoked Vulvodynia? Empty Provoked Vs. Unprovoked Vulvodynia?

Post  Sarah08 on Mon Dec 19, 2016 12:03 pm

Hello,

I am just wondering what the difference is between provoked and unprovoked vulvodynia?

I had sex with someone a few months ago and the pain/stinging has been constant ever since. Multiple visits to the GP ruled out any infections and a specialist has since suggested vulvodynia. I'm wondering whether, since it was the sex that brought it on, it would be considered provoked, or since it has been lingering for months it would be seen us unprovoked and more of a chronic issue.

Do people with provoked usually find it settles a few days after sex? And does that fact that mine hasn't mean im going to have this discomfort until i can find the right treatment? And is there any difference in treatment between the two?

Thanks in advance for your help Smile

I guess provoked would be triggered by all manner of things. Having sex, sitting,going to the toilet and many more but eventually it would calm down. Unprovoked would be a constant pain. I have read so much about this condition and it still baffles me. Apparently you can have both! Last week I had cystitis and I know it was upsetting my vulva. I bought some potassium citrate over the counter and within a short time I was comfortable again.
