Support Services

It is important to be able to talk with other women about the physical symptoms of vulvodynia and related emotional issues. The NVA has established a support network for those who choose this option. Many women find that speaking to others who have vulvodynia is both a good source of information and the best way to overcome the emotional isolation that may result from having this disorder.

Members can click here to complete the short (and secure) registration process and receive the contact information for the NVA support contact closest to you. Not a member? Click here to join and obtain a support contact.
