Vulvodynia is the term used for chronic pain in the vulva. Pain in specific points of the area surrounding the entrance to the vagina is vulvar vestibulitis. Both conditions have a profound impact on a woman's quality of life. It can affect sexual activity, daily functions such as sitting at a desk, exercising and physical activities.
These limitations can cause depression and negative self-esteem, leading to isolation and withdrawal.
The exact cause and the exact cure has not been found. As a result, many kinds of treatments have been tried. The most effective is a combination of treatments depending on your specific symptoms.
Remember, you are the most important part of your care. Being flexible and open-minded will help you achieve pain relief and ultimately get you back to enjoying life.
