Our workshops are friendly and informal, and partners are welcome to attend. All aspects of vulval health are openly discussed, including issues relating to the impact on intimate relationships. There will be some slides of a graphic nature.

The day will include time for questions and being able to share experiences with others. Mr David Nunns FRCOG and VPS Founder will start the day with a general introduction and go on to explain the details of the ISSVD Vulval Pain classifications.

Other topics for the day are likely to include Mona Lisa Therapy, an overview of Lichen Planus and Lichen Sclerosus and new developments in treatments.
