    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- …

    hey, im 19, ive been struggling with this almost a year. The first week I became itchy I went in to check about a yeast infection another week later. I have been to 10 different doctors a total of about 15 appointments for this problem for the past 11 months. I have been tested for everything including having a biopsy. I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

    MonaLisa Touch

    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 …

    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,

    I had a partial vestibulectomy 2.5 months ago and I'm progressing through dilators just now. I've gone to a PT and last week she was showing me what to do with the largest dilator. She said if it touches a tender area, pull my skin away from contact with the dilator. When she did this i felt a lot of pain so she told me to continue rather than her. This was 12 days ago. The next day I felt a small cut like pain whenever I put my finger at my 6oclock area (I originally had pain from 4-7 which is what was removed, but 6 was always the worst). I couldn't feel it continuously, only when I put my finger down there and pressed - so I laid off the dilators for a week or so before I used the dilator again.

    The day after I used the dilator again I could feel the same thing. If I look with a mirror I can't see anything really apart from a really small dot but I don't know whether it's a cut or not. I know some women tear during intercourse so I began to get worried that surgery has made my situation worse. I've used the largest dilator before and it was very uncomfortable but it never cut me or hurt afterwards. This time it wasn't painful, I just felt like I was being stretched but it was this pain afterwards that's my main concern.

    Another main concern is now a low level burning feeling on my vulva. I have looked in a mirror and I seem a bit red and irritated. I kiiiiiind of have lumpy discharge but not really really bad and I'm not itching. I'm wondering whether I have a low level form of thrush. I'm going to buy some thrush treatment to see if it makes a difference but I wondered if anyone here has ever experienced this before? It's been very hot lately and I've felt stressed because of everything to do with my vaginal pain, plus irritation from the dilators could have caused it too I suppose but I was just after some advice or to see if anyone else has had the same thing???

    Sorry I know this was a bit rambling I'm just concerned by every little thing. It's the fact that I have continuous low level burning, because i've never had unprovoked sensations ever before. I have experienced thrush once and it was very itchy so I know this doesn't feel the same but I guessed maybe it has different symptoms from time to time. Walk in clinics are expensive here so i wanted to check first.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I've never had a vestibulectomy, but I'm no stranger to tears. Tears for me don't always come with an obvious cause. They've come simply from wiping instead of dabbing when urinating (it's been a loooong time since I've used a wiping motion). I can get them during sex if too much friction is put on my perineum. I also got one from a recent vaginal ultrasound I had (and she was VERY gentle).

    So, if your skin is anything like mine, or just more sensitive since your surgery, I have no doubt that dilator therapy could cause a tear to skin that isn't used to being stretched.

    As far as yeast infections, I was actually reading that the whole "cottage cheese" discharge symptom is rarely accurate for women with true yeast infections (see below).

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/drjengunter.wordpress.com/2017/04/06/a-chunky-white-discharge-is-not-a-sign-of-a-yeast-infection-really/amp/

    Anyways, I'm just saying that just because you dont have the "typical" signs of an infection, doesn't mean you don't have one. My yeast infections cause my entire vulva to swell, turn red, get hot and raw. I don't get discharge or itching.

    Even if you think this is a yeast infection, I would highly recommend getting a prescription for diflucan versus using a antifungal cream. The creams are HORRIBLY irritating to sensitive skin.

    Thanks so much for replying. So sorry you've had to deal with that. Do you think the more you had sex the more your body got used to the stretching and you don't tear as much? Just trying to work out if this will be a permanent thing... but yes you're right and the skin is new and stretched. Hopefully it will get used to it. Thanks for the link as well... i've not heard anything like that before so it was really helpful x

    I do think that sex has helped desensitize my vulva, but I think there are much better ways. I think desensitizing in a "controlled" setting is much safer and will have much better results.

    Take a look at the below article. I think it's meant for women going through menopause, but the method should work the same for women with sensitivities.

    this does sound like thrush. I have ongoing issues like this and have just recently realized how big a player yeast is in my pain. even if it's not a full blown infection, I frequently get a low level soreness and discharge and know things are off balance. cutting way back on sugar, eating more probiotic and whole foods, and using raw organic coconut oil internally and topically have made a huge difference. have you tried a yeast treatment yet (diflucan or a kit) and if so, how did you make out? if you found relief from them it was almost certainly thrush. and if so, the above suggestions could still prove very helpful in preventing recurrence if that's a problem you find you're having.
