• Vulvodynia is a term used to describe chronic pain or discomfort of the vulva. • Health care providers do not know what causes vulvodynia. It is diagnosed when other causes of vulvar pain, such as infection or skin diseases, are ruled out. • The main symptom of vulvodynia is pain. The type of pain can be different for each woman. • Because each woman’s symptoms may be different, no one treatment works all the time or is right for everyone. If you have chronic vulvar pain or discomfort, talk to your health care provider about possible treatments.
