Welcome to the YatraYoni blog! I'm so glad you're here.
On this blog you'll find hope and resources for what can be a very difficult and scary time. When I was first diagnosed with vulvodynia, one of many varieties of chronic pelvic pain, the only information I could find on the internet was from some abandoned blogs written by women venting about how miserable and small their lives had become.
That was super depressing.
It was also ten years ago. Though we still have a long way to go in research and education, there are more resources now, and perhaps just as important, there are more ways for patients to connect. We have fun tools like Twitter, Facebook, and yes, blogs, where we can tell our stories and make our voices heard, to other patients, healthcare providers, and the general public. Where there used to be darkness, there are sparks, hints that things can get better. Together, we can take those sparks and turn them into a raging fire.
Yes, pelvic pain sucks. It hurts, and its scary, and its frustrating. But you CAN get better, and we are here to show you the way!
