What is vulvodynia?
According to Mayo Clinic, vulvodynia is chronic pain or discomfort around the opening of your vagina (vulva) that lasts at least three months and has no identifiable cause. The pain, burning, or irritation associated with vulvodynia can make sitting for long periods of time or having sex impossible. The condition can last anywhere from months to years.
The most common vulvodynia symptom is pain in the genital area, which can be described as:
- Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
Usually, your vulva will not change in appearance with this condition.
Why do I have vulvodynia?
Unfortunately, doctors do not know what causes vulvodynia. However, researchers have determined that the following factors may play a role in the development of this condition:
- Irritation or injury to the nerves surrounding your vulvar region
- Previous vaginal infections
- Allergies or skin sensitivity
- Changes in hormones
- Spasms or weakness in the pelvic floor muscles, which support the uterus, bladder, and bowel.
