You can wrhite my article here! http://health-life-love.blogspot.ro/2015/07/how-i-healedcured-vestibulodynia.html You can read here about a book "When sex hurts" ...it's very helpful for you...you can find the symptoms, the causes, the treatments of vulvodynia. You can give it to your doctor too to inform him if he doesn't know, because there are a few doctors who are aware of this conditions...it seems that in medical school they don't learn that

A great resource for learning about vulvodynia.Also would i like to specify that women should always be aware of such conditions & diseases by being in touch with these kind of posts, articles, or websites & as soon as they come to know that they are suffering form any such condition, they should find the best product for getting rid of it.One of which is available on our own site-Destinol which works magically for treating vaginal odor & bacterial vaginosis.You can learn more about it at Destinol.Take good care of yourself women!

In addition to the above great resources, MedlinePlus (www.medlineplus.gov) and ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, www.acog.org) have different definitions (and symptoms) for many various vulvar conditions; these are just a few of them below.

Vulvovaginitis symptoms:
* Irritation and itching of the genital area
* Inflammation (irritation, redness, and swelling) of the labia majora, labia minora, or perineal area
* Vaginal discharge
* Foul vaginal odor
* Discomfort or burning when urinating

Vulvitis symptoms:
* Redness and swelling of the vulvar skin
* Burning or itching of the vulvar skin
* Thickening of the vulvar skin
* Possible small cracks in the vulvar skin
* Possible vaginal discharge

Vulvodynia symptoms:
According to the ACOG, women with vulvodynia may have some of these feelings around vulva:
* Burning
* Stinging
* Rawness
* Itching
* Aching
* Soreness
* Throbbing
