abstract

  • Increased pain sensitivity in women with vulvodynia is not due to a genetically determined low catechol-O-methyltransferase¬†enzyme activity. Other mechanisms may account for alterations in catechol-O-methyltransferase activity in women with pain that is limited to intercourse or primary vulvodynia that contributes to pain sensitivity.
