What is Vulvodynia?

This is a chronic pain condition that affects the vulva, which is the external female genitalia. Vulvodynia can cause a burning, stinging, or raw sensation in the vulvar area, and can be accompanied by itching, swelling, or redness. The exact cause of vulvodynia is not known, but it may be related to nerve damage or irritation.

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

Experiencing pain or discomfort in the vulva area can be distressing and affect your quality of life. It's important to seek help from a gynecologist or urologist who specializes in vulvar pain or sexual dysfunction. They can provide you with a proper diagnosis and treatment plan to help alleviate your symptoms and improve your overall well-being.
