Vulvodynia?: Yeast still is possible; some cases are resistant to the standard treatments. Or perhaps you have idiopathic vulvodynia, i.e. vulvar pain without obvious explanation. Keep working with your gynecologist. Good luck.

I agree, a gynecologist may be able to determine if there is an anatomical or endocrinological cause of your dyspareunia (pain with intercourse). All the best.
