Abstract

Vestibulodynia is a chronic type of vulvar pain that affects at least 16% of women in the United States. The condition is often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all due to a lack of knowledge among health care professionals. Delayed diagnosis puts a woman at risk for sexual dysfunction, decreased quality of life, and relationship conflict.
