This Special Issue aims to provide a venue for networking and communication between IJERPH and scholars in the field of sexual and reproductive health. To this end, we welcome the submission of research on related topics. All papers will be published as fully open access articles after completing peer review.

Vulvodynia is a vulvar discomfort that occurs in the absence of any specific, clinically identifiable disorder. Few therapies have shown to be effective for the treatment of vulvodynia. In our recently published study, we tested a drug-free gel in women affected by vulvar vestibulitis. It is a cosmetic gel which acts locally without any metabolic, pharmacological or immunological effect. In order to further promote the validity of this new product, in this manuscript we analyzed the results obtained from the administration of four questionnaires in the same two groups of women affected by PVD and treated with a placebo and the new product. The questionnaires used: Female Sexual Function Index Scoring (FSFI), Female Sexual Distress Scale (FSDS), Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), and health-related quality of life measured by SF-36 (SF-36). The results obtained by this current analysis showed that the new gel has also proven benefits on women’s quality of life and sexual function, including improvements in arousal, desire, orgasm and satisfaction.
