Has anyone had any treatments at Mayo Clinic for Vulvodynia. If so, what was the outcome in terms of eliminating the chronic pain?

I have not, but I have heard that a number of women who suspected vulvodynia while pregnant actually had vulvar varicosities, which is a far less significant health condition.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no known treatment for vulvodynia. Let's just hope progress has been made since I last read about it, or that my sources lack in credibility...

You may want to try treatment by way of compression therapy. There's a Michigan-based company that makes a product called a V2 Supporter that is used to treat vulvar varicosities. Maybe it would help bring relief to those suffering from vulvodynia.

I can't promise it will work, but I also don't know that it's ever been tried. Here's the URL:
