Women with vulvudynia or vulvar vestibulitis often feel they have a swollen vestibule yet they can have vaginal penetration/s.  However, the associated pain/burning/discomfort complicate matters, making them avoid any contact or penetration.  Such reluctance will easily escalate – due to a psychosomatic reaction – to becoming vaginismus.

It is common to group vaginismus, vulvodynia, and vulvar vestibulitis into one and it takes a proficient clinician to know the difference.
