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 everybody!

I’ve been trying googling around to see if I could find any information on my issue, but it doesn’t seem quite like it. So I hope that some of you might be able to help me!

I’ve started having muscle pain for 8,5 years ago during intercourse, after I had some severe yeast infection. It took me many years to start solving it, but more than 3 years ago, I started going to different things, and a physiotherapist helped me the most, getting the tense muscle stretched.

The pain has been fading ever since then, somehow, and now I’m done to not having too much direct pain anymore. Some of the muscle in the region are still sore and painful when I touch, but don’t get touched when having sex.
I still have to go very slow, but i can have somewhat pain free sex today.

Now my main problem is that I feel numb when having sex. I remember this great feeling before those 8,5 years ago about having sex, than anything would be a great pleasure.
Now I get annoyed if the man goes on for too long, because the feeling of pleasure for me is low, and I have to be very horny and excited for it to be good sex - and it’s still never as it used to be.
I need most of the time to touch my clitoris, while having intercourse, to transfer that pleasure to my vagina.
Some of the intercourse can be pleasureble, but going just a little too fast (and still very slow), in a wrong position or too deep, it makes me feel numb - if not pain. The numbness is just like the feeling of any other skin getting trusted back and forth. Like to arms rubbing each other.
I talk with my sexologist and she says its very normal, when the body has been protecting itself and shutting down the pain for so many years.
I got a new boyfriend, and I will start looking for new treatment again to get the rest of the pain away.
But I’m still about clueless what to do about the numbness.
Is anybody here on my “stage” and recognize this numbness and have any ideas for me?!?

Thank you!
Hillelana
