Maybe: If you are suffering from vaginsmus, ie uncontrollable painful vaginal contractions, then Botox could theoretically help. Totally external pain, such as vulvodynia, which is pain isolated to the vulva is probably not going to get better with botox.

Botox: If you have painful intercourse or vulvar muscle spasm as the source of your discomfort then ,yes Botox may help relieve that pain. Talk to your Gyn or plastic surgeon.
