Vulvodynia is a very uncomfortable and often debilitating condition that affects many women in the US. The cause of the vulvodynia pain is considered unknown by many primary care physicians, and even most gynecologists, don’t know a lot about the condition. So where can women with the condition turn to for help? Is there high level expertice being offered by any provider in the US for vulvodynia?
Vulvodynia is marked by intense pain in the vulva which may be intermittent or ongoing. Other symptoms include pain during intercourse, rawness, and stinging. This troubling condition can impact quality of life and seriously undermine intimacy, as well as make simple tasks such as sitting at work or social occasions and exercising difficult.
Is there a procedure or medication that can help?
Dr. R. Stuart Fowler of Fowler Gyn International is a board certified gynecologist who has spent many years researching vulvodynia and other vulvovaginal conditions. As a result of this, Dr. Fowler believes that the underlying etiology of vulvodynia is known and has developed treatment protocols that have been used with success in thousands of women with vulvodynia.
The treatment plan begins with an accurate diagnosis, which is carried out using advanced diagnostic equipment. Dr. Fowler uses the effective vaginal fluid analysis (VFA) test, to assess the health of the vagina. The test identifies the vaginal constituents present. If the results indicate that the vaginal microflora is out-of-balance, a treatment plan is customized for the individual. This involves a combination of medications given per vagina that are prescribed based on the results obtained from the VFA test. This therapy is designed to get the vaginal micro-flora back in balance.
