Acupuncture improves the pain of vulvodynia

A recent study assessed acupuncture's augmentation of lidocaine therapy in the treatment of provoked localized vulvodynia (PLV). In this study, 14 women with moderate to severe PLV were randomized to either 18 sessions of traditional acupuncture (TA) or non-TA (NTA) for 12 weeks. All participants applied lidocaine 5% cream 4 times daily to the vestibule. Change in tampon test scores from baseline to week 12 and follow-up at week 24 was used to assess the progress. Participants in both groups reported pain reduction for 12 weeks.
