Program for Vulvar and Vaginal Health
Vulvar and vaginal disorders causing pain, dryness, itching, discharge, burning or discomfort can greatly diminish your quality of life. These conditions may be a result of menopause, hormonal contraception, cancer, infections, pelvic radiation and chemotherapy, but in some cases, there is no known cause. Often these disorders are not properly diagnosed or treated.
At the Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive Program for Vulvar and Vaginal Health, you will no longer have to suffer in silence. Our expert clinicians will work with you to help treat your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
The Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive Program for Vulvar and Vaginal Health offers an evaluation and treatment plan designed to meet your needs. The expertise of gynecologists, dermatologists and pelvic floor physical therapists is drawn from all specialty programs, including Menopause and Sexual Medicine. These specialists treat sexual pain disorders, vulvodynia, infections and dermatologic conditions that affect the vulva (external genitalia) and the vagina.
