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 …

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- …

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 …

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 …

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 …

I've been to 2 gynaecologists 1 of which helped me out so much and can thank my treatment for. I didn't even realise I had this until he told me, and was shocked that my previous gynaecologist did not see this. Vulvar vestibulitis (aka vulvodynia) is caused mainly by having thrush multiple times, making the nerves in the vulvar more sensitive. He told me that he had a treatment and I was so happy. -I am easily susceptible to thrush:((-
He prescribed me Atarax (an anti anxiety medication) it has been succesful in treating my discomfort. He first prescribed me 10 millagrams as he wasn't sure how I would be with the side effects/will cure my VVS with this low dose, (which are just drowsyness but can be managed by taking in at night -I didn't get any of the side effects-) it helped out my VVS but not treated it completely (I only took this for 28 days). He then prescribed me a higher dose of 25mg (which I am currently on for 3 months till my next check up). If that has treated it I will have to take the pills for 6 months for it to go. However if I still have it I will have to move to 30mg. But he is so helpful and said either way we are treating it. I hope this helped girls. It's hard to find a good gynaecologist that knows what vulvodynia is and how to treat it well."
I never tried it in the past since others worked for me, but it makes sense..it calmes the central nervous system and it stops sending pain signals.
I hope this helps someone
