Treatment for vulvar soreness and pain in the vulvar region must be developed on an individualized basis. Each woman has a unique severity, frequency, and characteristic of vulvar pain. At Vulvar Pain Clinic in London, we take the time to understand your vulvar pain and how it affects your quality of life. We may recommend one or more of the following treatments, and you can learn more about other treatment therapies in Viva La Vulva.
At Vulvar Pain Clinic, we use multimodal analgesia to treat vulvodynia. This type of therapy involves using a combination of medications to manage your pain, such as NSAIDS, local anesthetics, alpha-2 agonists, and opioids. The benefit of multimodal analgesia is that patients realize better outcomes compared to therapies that rely on singular medications.
Specialist Pelvic Physiotherapy
Specialist pelvic physiotherapy is recommended for women with pelvic and vulvar pain. It helps with muscles that are weak or too tight. Pelvic floor muscles attach to the back and front of the pelvic bone to create a sling shape. If the muscles are tight or weak, women experience a range of pain conditions, including in the vulvar region. You may also have other symptoms that seem unrelated, such as urinary incontinence, painful bowel movements, and trouble urinating. Pelvic floor issues can also cause pain during intercourse.
Minimally Invasive Pain Management Procedures
The medical team at Vulvar Pain Clinic in London often includes minimally invasive pain management procedures for women with vulvar pain. This may include nerve blocks, radiofrequency treatments, botulinum A toxin injections, and other non-surgical options.
Clinical Pain Psychology
Psychology rarely comes to mind when women seek answers for their vulvar pain, but clinical pain psychology is the centerpiece of an effective treatment approach. The effects of vulvar pain go beyond the physical implications and affect you emotionally, so our medical team emphasizes the importance of clinical pain psychology. Isolation, depression, anger, sadness, grief, and so many other emotions accompany vulvodynia. Your relationships with friends, family, and partners may also suffer. A clinical pain psychologist helps you work through the experiences of living with vulvar pain, both in the past and present as you receive treatment from our medical team.
