Vulvodynia Treatment Registry Now Enrolling Women in Arkansas, Colorado, Florida and Washington DC

In 2009, the NVA funded the first Vulvodynia Treatment Registry to gather data on the efficacy of different vulvodynia treatments. The project has now been expanded to five sites in Arkansas, Colorado, Florida and Washington DC.

If you are between the ages of 20 and 45 and suffer from vulvodynia, you may be eligible to participate in this study. This study does not provide free medical care and treatment. Participation is voluntary, does not include any experimentation and will not change your treatment recommendation. Women are given a thorough gynecological examination, and after the investigators determine the most appropriate course of treatment, participants complete questionnaires to determine its effectiveness. Two months after starting a new treatment(s), women undergo a second gynecological examination to measure treatment progress.
