While many women hesitate to discuss their vagina discomfort, these problems can significantly affect your life and well-being. Vaginal burning and pain are common but distressing symptoms. Their underlying cause makes them difficult to diagnose and treat for most doctors and even gynecologists. Fortunately, you can achieve relief with the right treatment.
Why Do I Have Vaginal Burning and Pain?
Your vaginal tissues are fairly resilient, but they are sensitive to irritants. If you have vaginal pain and burning, it often means you have altered vaginal microflora (AVMF). In a healthy vagina, lactobacilli thrive and produce acid that keeps the vaginal environment acidic. This environment prevents excessive growth of other bacteria and yeasts, which only exist at low levels. Imbalances let these organisms overgrow and produce chemicals that cause vaginal pain and burning.
How to Find Relief From Vaginal Burning and Pain
Have you seen other doctors but not achieved lasting relief from vaginal pain and burning? Dr. Fowler at Fowler GYN International specializes in treating vaginal symptoms. Dr. Fowler starts restoring your vaginal health using a Vaginal Fluid Analysis (VFA). This test tells him about the environment of your vagina, including:
- The population of lactobacilli
- The population of yeasts and other organisms
- The amount and quality of cells available for lactobacilli to eat
- The pH of your vagina
- Other chemical and biological changes
This information allows Dr. Fowler to choose one of the over 40 treatment protocols to address your condition. These treatment protocols will restore the correct microflora balance for optimal vaginal health. Dr. Fowler’s protocols have a remarkably high success rate and can resolve almost any vaginal burning or discomfort.
Why Can’t My Doctor Treat My Vaginal Burning?
There are several reasons your doctor or gynecologist has not picked up on the cause of your vaginal pain and burning. First, gynecologists do not receive specific training in vaginal microflora and the importance of a healthy vaginal environment. Second, most doctors do not have access to the VFA. As a result, they can only screen for a few very specific types of organisms that are not the underlying cause for most women.
For a correct diagnosis, visit a vulvovaginal specialist with access to the needed testing and treatment. Many women struggle with vaginal conditions for many years unnecessarily. Treatment protocols will restore an environment that promotes a healthy lactobacillus population. As a result, these bacteria restore your vagina’s normal acidity and drive problematic yeasts and bacteria back to low, harmless levels.
How Long Will It Take To Get Relief From Vaginal Burning?
Each body responds to treatment protocols in its way. How quickly you see results can depend on many factors. Since these treatment protocols do not use harsh treatments that would further disrupt the vaginal environment, they take time to work.
