For my quick hit this week I wanted to provide a new resource that I was introduced to by a colleague. In one of my previous posts I talked about my experience with bad sex. More women than you would think are known to experience intense pain and discomfort during intercourse. Furthermore (and I can attest to this) it’s frustrating when doctors fail to provide the answers or find the solutions you need. It can take a physical and even emotional toll on your life. These doctors might just be finding some right answers.
The Center for Vulvovaginal Disorders (CVVD), led by Dr. Andrew T. Goldstein, Dr. Lara Burrows, and Dr. Marianne Brandon, is making strides in their research regarding sexual pain. Their doctors are gynecologists, sex therapists, researchers, and psychologists. In their philosophy they state, “our physicians have devoted their careers to developing algorithms for the diagnosis and treatments of identifiable causes of vulvar pain.”
After speaking with some people who found success visiting the CVVD, it gives me real hope that I might find some answers for myself. That is why I wanted to share this resource. Even if while reading this you can’t relate to the same problems, you may know of someone that does. It is a common problem so I hope that with this post, someone dealing with this issue will find hope too, like I have.
You can check out their website at http://www.cvvd.org/ or can find books written by the center’s three leading doctors.
