Vulvodynia, or chronic vulvar pain, is a common but poorly understood condition. Although its etiology is not well understood, it appears to be multifactorial. As such, treatment options are targeted to reduce singular symptoms in a piecemeal fashion. A number of randomized, controlled trials have been conducted and at least one paper on combination therapy has been published; however, further systematic research is needed in order to more fully inform clinical practice.
