Odie -

So glad you found the site.

This wouldn't be a standard item that most people would use but it could come in handy if other repairs were done. Also there are times when the vagina can feel tender when sitting and some women may find that this relieves the pressure.

Re: Donut Hole Pillow

my tailbone has hurt since surgery, so i sit on a pillow with a V cut out of it... more comfortable than a donut pillow, but mine is for my tailbone...

Re: Donut Hole Pillow

I had no use for one. I had a TVH but no vag swelling or pain and no trouble sitting. I doubt you'll need one.
