Vulvodynia and Endometriosis
Many women who are diagnosed with endometriosis may also have other co-existing conditions that contribute to their symptoms of pelvic pain. Unfortunately, when women experience pelvic pain over a long period of time, there can be the formation of pelvic muscle spasticity and nerve sensitivities.
