Chronic vulvar pain (CVP) is pain in the vulvar area exceeding three months of duration. Previous studies have reported a prevalence of 7-8% in the general population and observed an association between CVP and other chronic pain, affective disorders and early life stressors. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of CVP among gynecological outpatients and to explore its association with child sexual abuse, comorbid fibromyalgia and mental health.
