Leah Sol is a 26-year old speech-language pathologist living in New York City. In 2012 she began experiencing vaginal pain and started on a long journey towards finding the right treatment and moving towards recovery. While going through treatments she found social and emotional support through the National Vulvodynia Association (NVA) and has since then become a volunteer support contact with the NVA helping other women cope with their pelvic pain. Leah will join us on Pelvic Messenger to share her story of hope, healing and recovery as well as discuss the importance of social support systems while dealing with pelvic pain.

The National Vulvodynia Association is a non-profit that was created in 1994 to "help improve the health and quality of life of women suffering from vulvodynia, or chronic vulvar pain, without an identifiable cause." The National Vulvodynia Association educates and provides resources and support for both patients and health care providers treating pelvic pain.
