Pudendal nerve blocks are used to help relieve vaginal pain. This block targets the pudendal nerve which is located in the pelvis. Many symptoms can occur when there is an issue with the pudendal nerve such as: vaginal pain, bladder and anal incontinence, chronic constipation, rectal pain, sexual dysfunction, and phantom pain in lower regions of the pelvis, vulva, anus and perineum.
