May is Pelvic Pain Awareness Month and at PHRC we want to do our part to help people better understand pelvic pain syndromes and more importantly, help people suffering with these diagnoses get the help they need to recover. Since knowledge is power, we created 5 videos and blog posts that we hope people find useful. This week, in our second week of the Pelvic Pain Explained Webinar series, I had the honor of talking about a topic I feel passionately about: vulvodynia. The diagnosis of vulvodynia can be confusing, scary, and overwhelming. Hopefully the information in my webinar and in this blog posts will help people better understand how their symptoms happened and arm them with the tools they need to get better.
In case you missed it, here is a link to my Vulvodynia Webinar.
