Vulvodynia Research Activities and Advances

Vulvodynia is a common problem among women, and the pain associated with this disorder can cause not only great physical anguish but also emotional distress. In the absence of effective treatments that can be applied widely, it is important that researchers gain a greater understanding of the disease's causes, develop better treatments, and, if possible, learn how to prevent vulvodynia altogether.

The NICHD conducts and supports research in a variety of areas related to vulvodynia, from basic science to clinical research.
