It is a chronic inflammatory condition of the small glands right at the opening of the vagina called the vestibular glands. They are not infected nor are they bleeding. They are not obviously having a problem, but when something goes against them, some mechanical irritation, a finger, tampon, a penis, a vibrator just at the entrance, because that where they are at the entrance, the woman experiences burning, searing pain and a feeling as though she really does want to have any further penetration.
