Homeopathic Medicines for Vulvodynia

Vulvodynia refers to chronic pain in the vulva (the external female genitalia) without any identifiable cause that lasts for at least three months or more than that. The external female genitalia includes the mons pubis, labia majora, labia minora, clitoris and vaginal opening. Homeopathic medicines for vulvodynia offer relief from symptoms like burning, stinging, and throbbing sensations felt in the region of the vulva.  

In some cases the pain in this condition can be felt in the entire vulva (generalized vulvodynia). While in other cases pain occurs in a one certain place of vulva (localized vulvodynia), for example at the opening of vagina called vestibule. Along with pain a female having this condition may have irritation, burning, stinging or rawness in the external genitalia. This condition is chronic and can last anywhere from months to years.

  1. Hi Dr Sharma,
    I believe I am suffering from this condition. I have had painful sex since I can remember, about the age of 20 and I am 45 now. I have had 5 children and I’m in absolute misery every day, I can’t live like this anymore. I don’t know what to do… I’m lost, and in pain. It hurts so bad, the only time I feel good is when I’m lying down. As soon as I stand or sit, it feels like stinging, burning, inflamed, cutting pain.

    Can you please help me with some suggestions on how to use the above products?

    Thank you so much

Before it used to burn only during pur intercourses, but now a days it just burns randomly without doing anything. I feel that it is getting worse and worse. Please help me. Thank you.
