    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 …

    Hey,

    I had a vestibulectomy last Wednesday and recovery is going pretty well for me. Not too much pain and am starting to be able to move around far more normally.

    I just wondered if anyone else had had one, would you be able to help? I had 4-7 oclock taken off and I'm feeling slight pain occassionally further up, around 2 oclock - did anyone else have this? I'm assuming it's totally normal as it's a tender area to deal with in the first place and I'm a bit battered and bruised down there. I'm guessing it'll settle down soon but I just wanted to check.

    Can anyone remember how long it took for their bruising to settle down? I think that's my main problem at the moment pain wise to be honest.

    I've also read a lot of people talking about physical therapy after surgery - What does this entail? No one has mentioned this to me. And my surgeon (Dr Downey) hasn't mentioned anything about dilators either but I've read a lot about people using them after a few months.

    Thanks Smile xx
