8% of women may experience stigmatizing and debilitating chronic vulvar pain (vulvodynia) by age 40. Recurrent urogenital infections are associated with vulvodynia and women with vulvodynia may be at risk of LUTS. Vulvodynia patients fail to seek care and therefore we propose to ask women to report any period of pain during intercourse, tampon use, or at the time of a pelvic examination that lasted for at least 3 months or longer. We will assess, bi-directionally, its relation to bladder health.
