Research has shown that acupuncture is effective for vulvodynia

Vulvodynia awareness makes this condition understood more. Up to 15% women have vulvodynia and many women seek treatments, but unfortunately there is no consistently effective standardized treatment for vulvodynia. Acupuncture can effectively reduce vulval pain and the women had special acupuncture for vulvodynia saw the benefit, though there is still no much research to prove it. The first randomized controlled pilot study examined the use of acupuncture for the treatment of vulvodynia was a small sample research about acupuncture on vulvodynia. In this study, thirty-six women with vulvodynia met inclusion criteria. The women were randomly assigned either to the acupuncture group or to the wait-list control group. The 18 subjects assigned to the acupuncture group received acupuncture two times per week for 5 weeks for a total of 10 sessions. The result has shown that Reports of vulvar pain and dyspareunia were significantly reduced, whereas changes in the aggregate FSFI scores suggest significant improvement in sexual functioning in those receiving acupuncture vs. those who did not.
