What causes vestibulodynia?

Unfortunately, the causes of vestibulodynia still remain unknown in spite of research being done in this area. However, certain biomedical and psychological risk factors may be associated with the development, aggravation or continuity of this problem. These are different factors targeted by treatments whether through physiotherapy (e.g., tension of the pelvic floor muscles), sex therapy (e.g., pain management, sexual and conjugal satisfaction), or medical treatments (e.g., desensitization of the mucous membranes).
