Nucleic Acid Amplification Techniques
A national registry for the study of vulvodynia was established with successful enrollment of participants at 8 sites. In addition to the cotton swab evaluation for vulvar allodynia, women with vulvar chronic pain should also be routinely screened for musculoskeletal dysfunction, emotional distress with specific emphasis on anxiety, and comorbid pain conditions.
