What can I expect?

A deep dive discussion all about VULVODYNIA!
Vulvodynia refers to chronic pain or burning at the vulva. This can be the entire vulvar area, the vestibule (vestibulodynia), or clitoris (clitorodynia). This is confusing to not only patients, but to many health professionals too because other conditions can seem similar. Also, many health care professionals don’t get specific training on diagnosing or treating this condition, so it is often missed (or a label is given without adequate care).
