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 …

So ok I'm 24 I've been having this problem for over two years seen quite a few doctors and obgyns alike and nobody will take me seriously I have had a few utis and yeast infections and even bv once and this all started after one of the utis …
1. I was negative for all STDS, but in Israel my test was positive for M.Hominis, Urea Urealyticum, and Urea Parvum. The doctors told me I do not need to treat this as these are normal bacteria in some people.
2. In February my GP diagnosed me with bacterial vaginosis and I was treated with clindamycin.
3. In March I saw a gynaecologist and he also diagnosed me with bacterial vaginosis has not gone away and prescribed me metronidazole gel. This did not improve my condition at all.
4. I found a different gynaecologist who diagnosed me with lichen sclerosis (without biopsy). I did not feel that the steroid cream he gave me helped at all and was unsure of his diagnosis.
5. Two weeks ago I found another gynaecologist t and she said I was negative for bacterial vaginosis and diagnosed me with a yeast infection and possible vulvodynia and prescribed me anti-fungal pills as well as numbing cream to help with the pain.
I have tried several antibiotics, yeast infection treatments, steroid creams, numbing creams and several natural therapies such as boric acid, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic and oregano supplement, and probiotics internally and orally. My quality of life is extremely diminished and I have lost hope. My symptoms are constant 24/7 without any relief daily.
I do not know if anyone else has constant, itching pain 24/7.

I've been through the same hell!!.
I've tried everything and still nothing has worked for me.
I am currently pregnant, and i have a little bit less pain, which it can be related to the hormones my body is producing now (progesterone).
I was following a treatment with local cream based on pregabaline and gabepantine (which i still use) it helps a little but the pain remains.
The doctor told me that we should wait until i give birth to start a new treatment based on hormones (even though i dont like the idea very much), because this is how i have experience less pain.
So i would advise you to have your hormones checked if you havent done so.
Hopefully you'll find the cure soon for this horrendous sickness.

The first choice for this is amitriptyline or Cymbalta if the amitriptyline doesn't work. Vulvodynia can have periods of remission so if you start this treatment you have all the chances for improvement. Google for a specialist doctor in your area
