Make a Difference

It is up to all of us to do our part to increase research on and educate health care providers about vulvodynia, and to help women both learn about the condition and feel more at ease talking about it. You may feel that you are only one person and cannot make much of a difference in your community but that is not true! There are many ways YOU can help to raise awareness of vulvodynia. Your efforts help us to reach out to media, elected officials, health care professionals, and other women like you to overcome the challenges of vulvodynia. You can offer women with vulvodynia hope and encouragement by sharing your story. For more information on how to share your story, please go to:

Many of the NVA’s services are provided by volunteers and we rely on the support of our donors to exist. Your donation helps us provide patient services, educate health care professionals and support critical medical research. You can even donate to the NVA while you shop! Visit and select the National Vulvodynia Association as your charity of choice. The Amazon Smile Foundation will donate .5% of the purchase price of your products that are eligible for AmazonSmile donations to the NVA.

Thank you for your strength and dedication to this cause.
