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 …

Maybe this will be a beacon of hope to someone else, like it was for me.

*vestibulodynia, severe pelvic floor dysfunction, low levels of estrogen and testosterone, cervical ectropion. Those are some of the crosses that I bear, that will hopefully be long gone. Trust me, no one is too complicated.

What are the treatments Dr Goldstein is advising for your conditions? I also have a cervical ectropion. Estrogen/testosterone creams, gels? Pelvic floor rehab/physio? I would be interested in the treatments he offers for you.
Glad you got some light at the end of the tunnel, wish there were doctors in the UK offering such hope or anything above a steroid cream or antidepressant which is so poor but are the only offerings here.

A ton of things came out of my visit with dr Goldstein. He took me off birth control completely and said under no circumstances do I go back on it. He gave me an estrogen/testosterone cream, Valium suppositories, pelvic floor rehab. I go back in July and he said if the muscles werent loosened he would make them loosen with Botox. So we will see. I started the suppositories and I go for my second PT appointment Thursday.
