Also known as painful intercourse syndrome, vulvodynia is an often-oversimplified diagnosis for a very complicated and debilitating syndrome. Pudendal neuralgia is inflammation of the pudendal nerve. This condition causes burning or stabbing pain in the genitals, urethra or anus. The pain often gets worse over the course of a day and is exacerbated by sitting. Both conditions make sex incredibly painful.
Sex should not cause you persistent pain. It can get better. You’re not alone.

NVA Support Contact
I have just been selected to be the National Vulvodynia Association's Support Contact for my state. Just like on this blog, I will not offer medical advice, I will only share my experience. I'm honored and excited to become a volunteer for the NVA.
