Provoked vulvodynia typically presents with pain during intercourse. The etiology of this condition has not been elucidated, and the diagnostic procedures are unfamiliar to many health care providers. In a series of papers in Pelviperineology, we aimed to present the up-todate paradigms of this condition. The present paper is the first to present a contemporary approach to the diagnosis of vulvodynia based on medical history, physical examination, and the use of specific instruments and tests, based on a recent consensus terminology of vulvodynia. Management options will be discussed in another issue.
