Pelvic Pain and Who’s Doing Something About It

We read about and hear about it too much: women dealing with chronic pelvic pain without much of a resolution.

Fortunately, we have found organizations that are dedicated to helping resolve or alleviate chronic vulvo vaginal pain. We’ve gathered them here to provide you an easy go-to source. Whether you are a person dealing with chronic pain or know someone who is, these resources can help lead you on a path to answers, relief and validation.

Pain Down There

Twitter: @painfulsex

Originally created as a video guide for women experiencing ongoing pelvic pain, this site has blossomed into a useful resource list, blog and other products. You can purchase chapters of their informative video, the full DVD (digital or hard copy) or DVD plus care package. We know about them because of their frequent informative Tweets. You won’t see a lot of blog posts from this site but their information and resources are incredibly valuable for someone with pelvic pain.

Blog About Pelvic Pain

This site may be a little text-heavy but it is full of information on pelvic pain and how it affects both men’s and women’s lives. Sara K. Sauder, PT, DPT diligently creates consistent content for this blog. From her bio:

Sara’s primary interest is pelvic pain. She is consistently learning about new treatment techniques, reading about complex pain treatment approaches and pursues opportunities to learn from pelvic pain specialists across the country. Her goal is to help people living with chronic pain learn how to manage, improve and abolish their symptoms.

What Sara’s bio doesn’t say is that her blog is conversational, funny, interesting and all-over an interesting read. Even if she goes off topic for a little while, her analogies and metaphors make sense. Her posts help give you a clearer picture of your body and the issue at hand.
