WELCOME

I’m a great woman with a pissed-off vulva. I have “primary vestibulitis." Most people are uncomfortable discussing their genital pain in public. Well, I’m not…so, welcome to my blog! There aren’t definitive answers in medical literature to explain the pain cycle of pelvic pain and how to heal it - yet. My hope is that my 21-year obsession to find help for myself will make your experience shorter, easier, and less painful. P.S. Recently "vestibulitis" has been renamed to "vestibulodynia."

Making Your Own Leg Lift

One reason for mechanically based pain syndromes is that one of your legs is longer than the other. For most people this is not a problem. But it could be for you. So here is how to make your own lift:

1. Go to the hardware store and buy thin cork. Note: Don't buy the size of your discrepancy, but something less thick. For example, I have a discrepancy of 1/4" of an inch, but I wear 1/8" of an inch. This is the height that improves my mechanical strength.
2. Cut the cork to the inner contours of your shoe. Make sure you cut it to span the entire length of your shoe (not half-way long as is sold by many vendors).
3. Cover the cork on both sides with duck tape running lengthwise.
4. Cut the duct tape to fit the contour of the cork.
5. If you need to, as in the case of sandals, then duck tape bottom of the lift and adhere the lift to the sole of your shoe.

What is great about this is that it allows you to experiment with height and you can make it your shoes perfectly. And it is very cheap.
