The problem with saddles is that everyone's different so what works for me may not work for you... I agree with the others about adjusting seat angle first, make sure it's not nose down but level or even slightly nose up. If you've been fitted properly then it's likely to be a saddle issue. If you've not had your bike fitted than that's the first place to start.
You can also measure the distance between your sit bones using a tape measure. The saddle wants to be at least this wide so that you're not sitting off the end of it. Once you know this measurement you can get saddle testing. Make sure you know your original saddle height and fore-aft measurement so that you can install the new one in the same position.
This is what happened to me - the stock saddle on my roadbike was far too narrow and really not doing what it should do. So I ended up chasing around and trying several saddles (of different brands) to find one that fit. I actually found two Selle Italia ones - the one that's the most comfy is on my Cyclocross bike, the one with the cut-out is on my roadbike. I need the cut-out to prevent numbness when in the aerobars.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
