I don’t have it, but I am a physical therapist who treats women with these kinds of issues. I would suggest getting a refferal for a women’s health PT to see if they could help you out! Good luck!

I was finally diagnosed with vulvodynia about a year and a half ago.  Even in NYC, it took me about a year to find a doctor who specializes in pelvic pain (and that my insurance will cover!) and after a few tries with different treatments, it looks like a hymenectomy and then PT is in my near future. I just have to get the courage to go through with it!


It is really tough on the relationship, but much better now that we know that the pain is not because I am anxious or not interested.  I think that it is great that you brought it up on this board.


I really recommend finding someone who understands the emotional toll that this condition takes on an individual and partner.  If you are near NYC, this is the link to the doctor I have been seeing:

I got diagnosed three months ago after two years of intense pain. My doctor had me try home remedies before suggesting therapy. On October 31st I underwent a partial vulvectomy…I’m healing okay, just anxious to see if it worked or not. I have a patient SO, but it’s been wearing on both of us and I’ve sunk into a bit of a depression due to it…One more week to see if everything is okay!
