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 …

Holistic treatments like acupuncture are definitely worth a shot, too. And overall self-care and stress management. Could you start up with a therapist (even an occasional/once monthly appointment) so you have someone to talk to and get support for this? Sounds like you are dealing with a lot all on your shoulders and could use some support. I have learned that emotional and physical pain are more linked than we realize. Stress is killer on the body and will prolong your healing and cause more pain. Take some time for you, getting massages, acupuncture, learning meditation/yoga, looking for new doctors who are willing to try new things, trying different treatments, whatever feels like a good fit that may be helpful to you, give it a shot. Nva.org could potentially be a great resource in finding new doctors to try or new treatment options that are available, if you feel you're at a dead end on your own.
Keep fighting! You will find your healing. Please keep us posted and let us know how you are! Be well.

I had similar symptoms, a lot of burning and itching (especially at night) following several UTIs, yeast infections, and rounds of antibiotics. Basically, my vagina has been through a lot! My gyno suggested I try boric acid suppositories, so I did 30 days of boric acid suppositories at night. The idea is that the boric acid (which is usually used to treat yeast infections) resets the flora of your vagina. It's kind of like a big reset button, and it helped me so much! My itching pretty much went away. Since then (that was about 4 months ago) I've had some more flare ups, but I'll do a couple nights of boric suppositories and it helps so much! I think my pain and itchiness are rooted in the fact that 10 UTIs and subsequent yeast infections really messed up the balance of my vagina, so the boric acid helped so much to get it back on track. I'm definitely not cured, but this has been a very helpful tool for me and has helped a lot!
