What is Vulvodynia?

Vulvodynia is described as a persistent and unexplained pain in the vulva and surrounding genital areas including
the labia, clitoris and vaginal opening. About 16% of women experience vulvar pain at one point in their life, without necessarily having an underlying cause.

How to recognise vulvodynia?

The sensation and pain in vulvodynia are often described as burning and soreness. Pain can be constant or occur every once in a while, touch or pressure can make the pain worse, such as intercourse or prolonged sitting. The pain can be specific to one area, or can feel as if the whole area is affected. There is usually no obvious skin condition or infection.

Vulvodynia & physiotherapy treatment in London

How vulvodynia can affect everyday life?

There is no known cause of vulvodynia, and like vaginismus it can have a big impact on women’s lives. It affects a women’s daily life, from her social life to exercise and even her working life. It adds stress to intimate relationships or starting a new relationship.

How can physiotherapy treat vulvodynia?

The aim of vulvodynia treatment is to provide more information about the condition and to help create effective self-care strategies to keep vulvodynia symptoms at bay.

Women’s health physiotherapy can help with this, and also by ensuring your pelvic floor muscles are working optimally. They do this by assessing your pelvic floor muscle strength, and then working with you on exercises to strengthen these muscles and reduce muscle spasms. Our pelvic physios have a number of efficient biofeedback techniques that help identify when your muscles are tensed or relaxed so you can learn to relax them at home and reduce pain. TENS can also be helpful. Part of treatment is working out what aggravates your symptoms and our physios can help advise you on avoiding perfumed products and choosing the right lubricants to use with intercourse. They can also help with modifying your exercise routine to avoid creating extra pressure on the vulva and aggravating your symptoms further.
