Thousands of women in America suffer from vulvodynia, but unfortunately many of them can’t put a name to the inexplicable vaginal pain and burning that they suffer. Vulvodynia does not have an identifiable cause, and the location and severity of the pain varies among patients. Consequently, some doctor’s don’t quite know how to diagnose and treat vulvodynia.
Vulvodynia is characterized by piercing pain, accompanied by burning and stinging, usually at the opening of the vagina, and around the vulva. Soreness and irritation are also common. The condition makes intercourse very painful and unpleasant, and in some instances the pain is so chronic that even daily activities like sitting, focusing at work, and exercising become difficult. Other symptoms include irritation, increased fatigue, as well as lack of mental clarity.
