For Women With Pain Disorders, Sex Can Be Excruciating Experience

She now works as the associate executive director for the National Vulvodynia Association, an organization created to improve the lives of individuals affected by vulvodynia, a spectrum of chronic vulvar pain disorders. She said she has made educating other women and medical professionals about vulvar pain her vocation.

"It is so important for women to educate themselves, become their own advocates and most importantly, to never give up hope," she said.

After years without sexual intercourse together, Veasley said she and her husband have been able to enjoy pain-free sex for more than eight years now, and the living proof of that is their two daughters, appropriately named Grace and Faith.
