Vulvodynia is spontaneous (provoked) or permanent (unprovoked) pain in the vulvar region. If the pain is localized to the vestibular region (the entry point into the vagina), the terms vulvar vestibulitis syndrome or vestibulodynia are used to describe this subtype of vulvodynia. Vulvodynia brings a lot of discomfort and significantly affects intimacy.
Vulvodynia is unrelated to other vulvar or vaginal disorders. It can be acquired, but may also be present at birth. However, it may not become evident until the time of first penetration. Recent scientific studies indicate several causes for acquiring vulvodynia including frequent yeast infections, use of oral contraceptives, and many other possible, but less well-known factors.
Neogyn® & Provoked Vestibulodynia
Women that acquire vulvodynia, where the pain is localized to the vulva and mostly occurs spontaneously (such as with penetration) best benefit from NEOGYN Vulvar Soothing Cream. The cream helps to restore, soothe and comfort the vulva in those women suffering from secondary, provoked vestibulodynia. The cream is formulated with cutaneous lysate, which was discovered through years of research in wound healing.
Wash hands and apply approximately a pea size amount of NEOGYN once or twice daily with your fingertips to the vulva, in particular to the entire vestibule until the entry to the vagina; or follow the recommendations of your physician.
More cream may be used when applied also to the outer areas of the vulva.
Best results can be obtained with continued regular use.
