The MonaLisa Touch will help with the trophy and symptoms that are associated with it. There are studies underway on vulvodynia specifically, so the jury is still out, however, it sounds like your symptoms will respond to the therapy if they increased with menopause.

Will the MonaLisa Touch help wit vulvadynia
Sometimes though, if there is significant vaginal atrophy, continued neurological windup from that pain source can flare up the vulvadynia.
Vulvandynia is a complex regional pain syndrome so a multimodal approach is best. We are using the external probe on the MonaLisa Touch to treat lichen sclerosis patients. I would consider using it to treat vulvadynia if you have tried everything else first as we have no specific data yet.
