Do you experience clitoral pain?

A group of researchers at McGill University is seeking women who experience clitoral pain (Clitorodynia) to participate in an online study designed to collect demographic information, assess pain symptoms, and potential causes of this important women's health issue. If you believe you suffer from this problem, or have been diagnosed with Clitorodynia, we would like your help! This research project is directed by Dr. Mayte Parada, Department of Psychology, McGill University. Participation includes a 30-minute online questionnaire - no pain will be experienced or health risks posed. All personal information is strictly confidential and will not be shared with third parties. Participants will be entered into a raffle for one of two gift cards from amazon.com (odds are approximately 1 in 100).
