Vulvar Vestibulitis

Overview & Efficacy: Several small controlled studies have shown that muscle tension biofeedback from the pelvic floor is at least as effective as surgery and cognitive restructuring for improvements in sexual function and significantly reduced pain during intercourse (but not quite as much as surgery) among people with vulvar vestibulitis.

This therapy is rated as between possibly and probably efficacious (levels 2 to 3 on a scale of 1 - 5 with 5 being the best) until more controlled and larger clinical studies with longer term follow-ups are published.
