Are there procedures or products that can relieve vulvar pain?

Vulvar pain known medically as vulvodynia, can be persistent and debilitating for some women, and they often spend many years trying to find relief.  This occurs because there is generally not a lot known about vulvodynia, so it is not easily diagnosed or treated. Women who have the condition are often frustrated and left to wonder if there are no procedures or products that can relieve vulvar pain.

Understanding vulvar pain
Board Certified Gynecologist, Dr. R. Stuart Fowler of Fowler Gyn International, Phoenix, AZ has done a lot of research into vulvar pain, and his findings indicate that the condition is linked to changes in the normal characteristics of the vaginal environment.  As a result, FGI has developed the Vaginal Fluid Analysis (VFA) test, to assess the features of the vaginal constituents.

The VFA test will help determine if your vagina is in a healthy state, or if it has an altered vaginal micro-flora pattern. If there is any abnormality in the vaginal constituents, a treatment protocol is recommended to restore normality.

Procedures to relieve vulvar pain
FGI uses a treatment protocol known as vaginal rejuvenate therapy to relieve the symptoms of vulvodynia. The treatment is individualized, and the medications used will depend on the results of the VFA test.  Dr. Fowler may also recommend using hypocontactant hygiene products to reduce the risk of chemical exposure, and the possibility of any related pain or irritation as a result of this.
