Any experiences with the Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders?

My friend is considering visiting one of the Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders to address her long-term, unresolved issues with (what appears to be) yeast. She's been to multiple generalists and specialists with no luck. Has anyone tried them? How was it?

Please do not use "herbs" to treat a recurrent vaginal problem.

Has she been to an actual gynecologist?

I have worked in the field of sexual health for 22 years and have never heard of this place, just anecdotally.

Herbs? There are no herbs involved. She's seen actual doctors, including obgyns. There have been multiple cultures that are positive for yeast.

Any test for lichen sclerosus or a visit to a gyn who specializes in vulvar dermatology?

I haven't heard of the clinic you mention. Anecdotally, I have heard positive things about the OHSU Vulvar Health clinic, both in their medical skills and their emphasis on sexual pleasure as important part of sexual health.

Sorry she's dealing with this. :-( Hope the doctors help and the medical problems get resolved.
