About Vulvar Pain Foundation

The Vulvar Pain Foundation (VPF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the isolation of women affected by vulvar pain and related disorders. The foundation’s purposes are to give hope, support, and reliable information to affected women and their families, to advance the standard of medical practice in treating vulvar pain, and to promote scientific research. Vulvar pain is characterized by persistent burning or sensitivity of vulvar skin that is not caused by identifiable infection. Women with vulvar pain may experience various physical symptoms ranging from itching, stinging, burning, and shooting pains to hypersensitivity and sensations of dryness or swelling anywhere in the vulvar skin. Established in 1992, the Vulvar Pain Foundation currently consists of approximately 5,700 members including affected individuals and family members as well as physicians, nurses, physical therapists, researchers, biofeedback therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, registered dietitians, health educators, and other professionals.
