Skip sharing on social media links

Understanding vulvodynia is an important part of the NICHD's mission to improve women's quality of life. In partnership with other parts of the NIH, the NICHD supports a wide range of investigative efforts on vulvodynia, from basic science to clinical research. Through research grants, meetings, and outreach activities, the NICHD aims to build a more complete scientific understanding of the prevalence, mechanisms, treatment, and prevention of the disorder, and to increase awareness of vulvodynia among researchers, health care providers, and women generally.
