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 …

An absolute success story- please read!

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 …

New and need advice and help

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 …

Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone can help. I have not had a diagnosis of Vulvodynia yet but I’m positive it is what I’m experiencing. I can’t believe how suddenly and unexpectedly this has taken over my life. I’m 35 years old and have been single for around a year. I have just started seeing someone and at the beginning of feb I decided to go to my gp and start bc. I had been taking it for around 2 weeks when I was suddenly struck with a bad case of tonsillitis which is normal during stressful times (which lately has been stressful with one thing and another). I went to my GP and was prescribed antibiotics. I was also prescribed treatment for vaginal thrush as I always get thrush when I am on antibiotics. Sure enough thrush appeared but it was so severe I needed three lots of treatment to get rid of it. Ever since I have been burning and sometimes itching but it does not feel like thrush. It comes and goes and having sex with my new partner is almost impossible. I just feel like I’m on fire down below and in some areas quite painful too. I don’t know if this is some after effect of ready bad thrush or because of my bc. Any advice ladies. Thank you

I developped vulvodynia after a pretty bad UTI in 2010. A few days after there was massive buning from the vulvar tissue and the doctor said it was a yeast infection and I took one of those OTC treatments. It made it worse! I went back and ahe said "It will just go away " ???? So instead  I got a gyne appoint through another doc, did those insertable probiotic ovules etc- after 1week of that it was worse- the highest pain I've ever had. It was the acid from the lactibacillis that further "burned the skin". So I went back to this gyne and I was prescribed a steroid cream for 6 weeks because he thought I had lichen sclerosis. Let's just say the most I could do was 2 weeks because the cream made even worse again! By then I'm in agony and decide to go to an acupuncturist to help with the pain. It brought it down by 30-40%. So acupuncture could help regulate any circulation and pain issues.  That would be my best suggestion to start with.  Also thwre is a probiotic tablet called RePhresh ( that's how it's spelled- not a typo...). It's just for women. Then please consider seeing a pelvic physiotherapist that's what saved me really. I still have issues but the problem all along was screwed up connective tissue and muscle dysfunction. Good luck and take care.

Ok.. so I had unprovoked vulvodynia and provoked vulvodynia, chronic UTI, chronic yeast, lichen sclerosis, etc. I'm cured from it all. I followed the protocol by Anthony William.

According to Anthony, UTIs are caused by an unknown/currently undetectable strain of strep. Thrush is also caused by strep. It's a little confusing but lichen sclerosis is sometimes not recognized completely and that's caused by shingles. I think you're batting strep since of the UTI issues.

In my blog, under "necessary reading" I would listen to the shows on strep, lichen sclerosis and UTI (the UTI show covers more than just UTI)

If this is too much, I started coaching women and helping them create a protocol and it's really been working for them. So that's exciting. I'm not a practitioner, I don't charge. It's just the right thing to do since no one else has been helping. At least no one could help me except his info. And chronic pain really messes with your head so it's hard to see straight when you're in pain. I get it.

My email is on the bottom of my blog.

Don't give up!
