ACOG Committee Opinion: Number 345, October 2006: vulvodynia.


Vulvodynia is a complex disorder that can be difficult to treat. It is described by most patients as burning, stinging, irritation, or rawness. Many treatment options have been used, including vulvar care measures, medication, biofeed training, physical therapy, dietary, modifications, sexual counseling, surgery. A cotton swab test is used to distinguish generalized disease from localized disease. No one treatment is effective for all patients. A number of measures can be taken to prevent irritation, and several medications can be used to treat the condition.
