Tara Langdale-Schmidt: Founder, Vuvatech

Tara Langdale-Schmidt, a victim of a horrible and painful health condition – Vulvodynia – turned her chronic illness into a cause and has become an inspiring advocate for helping women worldwide. Vulvodynia causes painful sex, but instead of hiding in shame, she became an outspoken, activist for creating awareness about the condition for thousands of women worldwide. See her story in Self Magazine:

For four long years, Tara, 34 from Sarasota, FL. suffered from Vulvodynia. She experienced daily excruciating pain in her pelvic area that made it impossible to live a normal life or enjoy sexual intimacy with her husband. After seeing many different doctors, and having several surgeries, she took matters into her own hands and became an accidental start-up entrepreneur. With the help of experts, she invented a medical device, a vaginal dilator that used Neodymium magnets to relax muscles and ligaments and increase blood flow to the painful area calming nerves and helping overcome sexual pain. Her creation resulted in a startup company, VuVatech in Sarasota, Fl. that helps women with severe pelvic pain issues. Today, Tara and over 14,000 women are using the dilator and living a more normal life, finally enjoying pain free sex….and bringing relief for the men who mentally suffered along with them and in the process, became a national women's advocate.
