Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is characterized by pain, tenderness, and redness in the vestibule of the vaginal area. It affects around 12% of women and can be triggered by contact with various stimuli, such as a penis, dildo, speculum, feminine hygiene product, or tight clothing. It is not uncommon for women with PVD to develop sexual dysfunction and to lose interest in even nonpenetrative sex.
This study aims to discuss chronic pain in the context of PVD, analyze PVD’s chronicity and negative sexual sequelae, and examine the roles that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practice can play in PVD’s treatment.
