Support Services Network


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.
