The Vulvodynia Guideline and the Vulvodynia Basics Resource
In 2005, the ASCCP
produced and published the first international guideline on vulvodynia (Haefner
HH, Collins ME, Davis GD et al. The Vulvodynia Guideline. J Lower Genital
Tract Dis 2005;9(1):40-51). ASCCP then co-authored an adapted version of
the guideline with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
(ACOG) to serve as an ACOG Committee Opinion (ACOG Committee on Gynecologic
Practice. ACOG Committee Opinion No. 345: Vulvodynia. Obstet
Gynecol 2006;108:1049-52.). To access the Vulvodynia Guideline click here.
In addition, in 2008, ASCCP created the Vulvodynia "The Basics"
worksheet as an educational resource.
