Vulvodynia

Vulvodynia Vulvodynia is a form of persistent vulvar pain of at least 3 months’ duration, without a clear identifiable cause. Women with vulvodynia often speak of vulval burning, soreness, stinging, itching and stabbing pains in the genital area. Simple activities such as wearing jeans, inserting tampons, having a pap smear, or attempting intercourse can be painful and distressing. Most times there are no medical causes to explain the severity of pain or some of the associated symptoms. This condition can affect women of all ages, be they single, partnered, with or without children.
