UCLA Brain Imaging Study

 

Women between the ages of 18 and 55 who have been diagnosed with Provoked Vestibulodynia (formerly vulvar vestibulitis syndrome), or are experiencing chronic pain at the vaginal opening with/without intercourse may be eligible to participate in this study. Women must be right-handed and cannot be pregnant. Participation involves two visits over approximately 2-4 weeks.  Dr. Emeran Mayer at the UCLA Center for Neurobiology of Stress (www.uclacns.org) will conduct brain imaging tests (fMRI) to understand how chronic vulvar pain may affect the brain’s activity and structure.  Participants can earn up to $75 and will receive a picture of their brain.

 

For more information, please contact Dr. Andrea Rapkin (310-825-6963).
