In brief: Vulvar pain
The new terminology for vulvar vestibulitis is localized provoked vulvodynia.
It is characterized by severe pain incited by focal touch or pressure of the vulva. Most patients with localized provoked pain are referred for physical therapy to the pelvic floor with biofeedback. It is most useful for patients who also have vaginismus, back pain, or muscle spasms.
