    Ooo This is great! Too bad most doctors (in my experience) don’t seem to know much (if anything) about it and don’t feel the need to learn either… but it’s worth a shot! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hey, no problem 🙂 I like this blog – it’s nice to see a vulvodynia/vvs blog on wordpress! I noticed you guys were comment-less so… I thought I’d leave some love 🙂

    Yay for IC!….? Or something lol. Yeah IC sucks, sorry you have it 😦 I have an awesome IC-Vulvodynia mega mixxx so, that’s always fun!

    Wow, thanks! I didn’t think anyone was reading my blog so I’ve just been kind of rambling on… but if someone out there in internet land likes it, that’s fine by me! 🙂

    Ok I am off to check out this!

    Hey guys, If you live in or near MA, I definitley recommend that you consider the Vulvo-vaginal services at Harvard Vanguard in Burlington, MA. The doctors and nurse practitioners in this office specialize in vestibulodynia (vulvar vestibulitis) and all other dieases of the vulvar or vaginal area. Can’t say they have provided me with any miracles yet, but they certainly know more than the average OB/GYN who looks around prescribes some antibiotics and shrugs her shoulders. The head doctor is Dr Elizabeth Stewart. She has even written a book called the “V book” all about vaginas!

    Hi Masha!

    Thanks for stopping by, and commenting!! We 4 who are the founders and directors of NVVO live in Portland Oregon. We hope to help other VVS/chronic vulvar pain sufferers in other states to start their own chapter of NVVO. We are located only in Oregon…for now!!

    Thank you for the info, though! We are definitely looking to network with other states, doctors, clinics, and especially women like us.

    We LOVE “The V Book”!!! I think every girl should be given a copy on her 13th birthday or something.

    Please keep in touch! Tell us your story! If you’d rather, you can email us directly: or join our Yahoo group.
