What is Vulvar Pain?
Vulvar pain describes a range of medical conditions that cause discomfort in the external areas of the female genitalia. This may involve the outer and inner lips (labia minora and labia majora), as well as the opening of the vagina. Known clinically as vulvodynia, chronic vulvar pain is any type of discomfort that occurs in these areas of a woman’s genitalia.
If you live with vulvar pain, you may feel quite alone. Studies show, though, that vulvodynia is common with an estimated 20% of women experiencing some type of chronic pain in the vulva. Most vulvar pain conditions develop between 20 and 40 years old, but they also occur in younger and older women.
