Longitudinal Population-Based Study of Vulvodynia

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Barbara D. Reed, Hope K. Haefner, Sioban D. Harlow, Ananda Sen

The goal of the proposed research is 1) to assess the prevalence of vulvodynia among a geographically defined, population-based panel of 2500 women with clinical confirmation of the diagnosis in women reporting current vulvodynia, a prior history of vulvodynia, and a representative subset of asymptomatic controls; 2) to assess the prevalence of specific polymorphisms of candidate genes among these groups of women; and 3) to assess the natural history of vulvodynia over a three-year period. To contribute to this research, SRO’s work scope includes the initial sampling and screening of the population, in an effort to enroll appropriate participants in the follow-up components.



A random digit dial (RDD) telephone sample will be used to identify eligible women through a telephone screening of a probability sample of Southeast Michigan households. The survey population for the baseline recruitment sample will include all women, age 18 and older who live in households within approximately a 30-mile radius of the University of Michigan Medical Center.

Funding Period: 05/12/2008 to 03/31/2015
