Dr. Caroline Pukall, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada explains her vulvodynia online study and how women and their partners can participate.
Online Study Examining Psychosocial Functioning in Women With and Without Vulvar Pain
We are currently inviting women with vulvar pain and women without such pain to participate in an online study examining sexual and relationship functioning and body image. Both women who are currently involved in a relationship and women who are not in a relationship are invited to participate in this study. Partners are also invited to participate in this study, although this is not necessary for participation. If you are a woman who is 18 years of age or older, you may be eligible to participate! Participation involves the completion of a brief telephone screening interview and online questionnaires.
We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
