Suffering from vulvodynia? Acupuncture can help

This is a good article about vulvodynia

Jennifer is a General Practitioner, medical writer, parent, and founder of the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust, registered charity for childhood cancer awareness and research. She wrote an informative article about vulvodynia.

Here are a few points that she made

It is not well known condition, but it has great impact on women’s life. Vulvodynia is something that many people have not heard of. For women with vulvodynia, even the gentlest touch in their genital (vulval) area can result in intense, burning pain.

The cause of vulvodynia are not fully understood because when women with vulvodynia are examined there are no obvious abnormalities seen.

It can be difficult to diagnose. As a result, some women may face several years of symptoms and pain before receiving the right diagnosis. The approach is to rule out other possible diagnoses first.

Living with vulvodynia

Vulvodynia is classed as a chronic pain condition, but like other long term pain conditions you can have good and bad days. Vulvodynia can vary from a mild discomfort to severe pain.

Experiencing chronic pain can understandably affect your behaviour, activities and relationships. In particular, it may affect your sex drive or cause you to feel depressed.

Pain in the genital area especially is often difficult to talk about with family or friends, so you may be feeling isolated, which makes the problem feel even worse. If you don’t feel you can talk to your partner or friends, please talk to your doctor. Organisations such as the Vulval Pain Society give good information and also signpost to a number of support groups that are available.

Having sex with vulvodynia. When even the slightest touch can result in a deep burning or stabbing pain, it is understandable why women with vulvodynia can sometimes struggle to enjoy sex, or prefer to avoid it entirely.

Vulvodynia can be a difficult condition to treat, but there are a number of therapies that can be tried.

Acupuncture can help reduce vulvodynia pain.
