If you have troubling vaginal symptoms that you have been unable to resolve despite visits to multiple providers, you may need to consult with a vulvovaginal specialist. A vulvovaginal specialist can make an accurate diagnosis of your intimate issues and prescribe appropriate treatment. But what exactly does a vulvovaginal specialist treat?
What can a Vulvovaginal Specialist Treat?
A vulvovaginal specialist evaluates and treats disorders affecting the vulva and vagina. The vulva is the external female genitals consisting of the labia minora, labia majora, vestibule, and clitoral hood.
Vulvovaginal disorders incorporate a range of pain syndromes, infections, and skin diseases. Vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis, lichen sclerosus, recurrent vaginitis, and vestibulodynia are common vulvovaginal conditions.
Vulvovaginal Specialist at Fowler GYN International (FGI)
FGI provides expert vaginal care to women experiencing vulvovaginal symptoms that have not been relieved. Many of these women have already received medical treatment from their primary care physician or gynecologist.
The founding physician of FGI Dr. R. Stuart Fowler is a board-certified gynecologist and vulvovaginal specialist. Dr. Fowler received his specialty training at Mayo Clinic, where he worked for over 20 years and specialized in vulvovaginal disorders and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Dr. Fowler retired from Mayo Clinic early to help women who have been struggling with undiagnosed vulvovaginal symptoms. FGI has the targeted expertise and advanced diagnostic tools to accurately diagnose and effectively treat chronic vulvovaginal disorders.
Since establishing FGI, Dr. Fowler has successfully helped thousands of women across the US gain freedom from vulvovaginal pain and discomfort.
FGI treats a select number of vulvovaginal conditions, including vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis, lichen sclerosus, vestibulodynia, chronic vaginal discharge, recurrent yeast infections, and recurrent bacterial infections.
If you have undiagnosed symptoms such as burning, irritation, itching, unusual discharge, rawness, soreness, vaginal dryness, or pain with intercourse, you could be suffering from a vulvovaginal disorder.
Chronic vulvovaginal problems can lead to serious psychological effects and adversely impact overall quality of life. That’s why it’s essential to seek treatment early from a vulvovaginal specialist.
