  • Vulvodynia

    Hi there, I have had vulval pain for a couple of months now. It started after a break up and was originally the most pain I've ever had in my life. I also swear that I've gained an extra skin fold next to my labia minora. I've seen 5 doctors now and diagnosis from each doctor varied from...

  • How I cured my vulvodynia

    I see so many posts on here about constant or provoked vulva pain that I thought it might be useful if I explained vulvodynia and how I cured mine. Vulvodynia literally means vulvar pain and is a condition of the nerves in that area. The nerves have become hyperactive and hypersensitive due to trauma...
