Hope for Patients with Pudendal Neuralgia and Pudendal Nerve Entrapment

HOPE is a charitable organization that offers support and information to patients who have pudendal neuropathy (PN), pudendal neuralgia (PN), or pudendal nerve entrapment (PNE).  If you have come to this website it is probably because you are in pain or you know someone who is in pain.  Our goal is that after coming here you will be able to develop a plan of action that will help you get your life back.

Notes on Violet's Conversation with Dr. Andrew Elkwood 

Dr. Elkwood's concern is that physicians may take an approach that is too compartmentalized when diagnosing the cause of pelvic pain rather than considering all of the possible causes.  Pudendal neuralgia may be just one of the factors contributing to the patient's pain.

The directors of this organization are Amanda,  Stephanie, and Violet. We are all veterans of pudendal neuropathy and you can find us on our forum. We review the latest peer-reviewed literature and do our best to keep current with the latest information available to the PN community. Nevertheless, we are not doctors and we recommend that you seek advice from your medical professional for treatment.

Directors of the Health Organization for Pudendal Education, moderators of the forum, and health care professionals who serve as advisers serve strictly on a volunteer basis and are not paid. Pudendalhope.org is funded by donations.  Anyone can contribute.
