Solgar makes calcium citrate that's available in many healthfood stores and chemists. To order calcium citrate, contact Nutricentre via their website or on 0800 587 2290. Alternatively, there are now many other online shops which sell the supplement, for example Worldwide Shopping Mall, Just Vitamins and Green Valley Trading Company, to mention just a few - an internet search should turn up others.
For keen cyclists, the MK8 and MK9 Spongy Wonder Bicycle Seats from Canada have been specially designed to reduce physical distress to the vulval region. They allow greater circulation of air than conventional seats do. These models cost $86.75 CAD for the MK8A and MK8B types, and $119.75 CAD for the MK9A and MK9B types. (To convert CAD, or Canadian dollars, into your national currency, go to a currency conversion site such as www.xe.com.) Read more about the seat on the Urological Sciences Research Foundation site.

If your vulval pain is worse when you're sitting down, the Rompa Vibration Pillow may help. The black corduroy cushions cost £14.95 (a total of £17.94 including VAT and free shipping). For more information see the Rompa website and enter 16701 in the product code search box, or telephone 0845 230 1177 for a catalogue. We have had very good feedback about the Posturelite Donut Cushion which is now available in the UK from various sources including Adaptacar and Sportstek.
Some recent clinical trials in Italy found that wearing DermaSilk briefs reduced vulval pain, particularly when there was evidence of skin irritation or Candida infection. The briefs are available on prescription, or alternatively if you want a more varied style, you can purchase DermaSilkIntimo privately from the DermaSilkIntimo website, where you can also find further information about the briefs.
