Living with Vulvodynia

Imagine living your life in constant pain. Giving up physical activities - including sex -for good. It's a reality for Dana Pegg who is living with the condition known as vulvodynia.

The 37-year-old has been struggling with the syndrome since 2001. During those years, her intimate relationships deteriorated and she became increasingly frustrated when doctors couldn't nail down the exact cause of her chronic pain.
