Genital Pain/Provoked Vestibulodynia

Genital Pain/Provoked Vestibulodynia studies

- Closed for recruitment

Women diagnosed with Provoked Vestibulodynia (pain in the vulvar vestibule) will be randomly assigned to take part in either 8 weekly 2-hour group sessions focused on mindfulness meditation skills or 8 weekly 2-hour group sessions focused on cognitive behavioural therapy. Treatment will be provided by facilitators with considerable experience in working with women who have genital pain. In addition to receiving the treatment free of charge, women will be compensated for completing assessment measures at various times throughout the treatment. This project is a collaboration between the UBC Sexual Health Lab and the BC Centre for Sexual Medicine, with Centre staff facilitating treatment groups.
