VULVODYNIA is a chronic pain syndrome that affects the vulvular area of the external genital female organs, including labia majora, labia minora, clitoris, and vestibule of the vagina. The syndrome often occurs without an identifiable cause or visible pathology. It presents mostly as pain in the form of burning, stinging, irritation or sharp pain occurring in the vulva, including the labia and entrance to the vagina. This pain may be constant, intermittent, or trigger in response to touch. It has been found to cause painful intercourse. Vulvodynia can sometimes even last for years. Treatment other than injection or topical is limited for this increasingly common problem.
