Subtypes of vulvodynia include provoked vestibulodynia, generalized vulvodynia and clitorodynia. Many sufferers report vulvar burning and painful sexual intercourse. If you are a woman in pain, her concerned partner, or a health care provider who treats vulvodynia, the NVA - with our expert medical board - can assist you.
