Uncomplicated recurrent urinary tract infections (rUTIs) associated with uropathogenic Escherichia Coli (UPEC) are common among healthy, reproductive-aged women. Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is a major reason of sexual pain in premenopausal women. The aim of the study is to assess prevalence and predictors of secondary PVD in a cohort of Caucasian-European, heterosexual, sexually active, reproductive-aged women seeking medical help for rUTIs as their primary complaint.
