"Finally Revealed- New Treatment For Recurrent Vaginal Infections and/or BV- That Actually Works"


What Symptoms are Attributed to Recurrent Bacterial Infections?

The following are a number of real-life symptom scenarios:

Told by several provider that itching and burning is from recurrent bacteria infection known as bacterial vaginosis. Given the same treatment each time; first  Flagyl® and then Metrogel®. Each of the treatments results in some improvement then the symptoms come right back.

Treated for a bacterial infection of the vagina with clindamycin antibiotic... Later given oral metronidazole for bacterial vaginosis. Then after a relapse given a course of Metrogel®. Then corticosteroids are prescribed... Nothing works.

Diagnoses as BV by a positive vaginal culture for Gardnerella Vaginalis. Treated twice with Flagyl®, then metrogel®. Reculture shows Beta Strep. Then treated with Amoxicillin. Symptoms briefly remit then relapse again.

A fishy odor with vaginal discharge and itching. Told it’s a recurrent bacterial vaginosis but gets only transient response to antibiotic therapy; the symptoms come right back.

In presence of whitish discharge with a musky odor, told by one physician  it’s bacterial vaginosis but does not respond to oral or topical metronidazole, or to clindamycin. Gets another opinion and is told that it’s recurrent yeast but does not respond to oral fluconazole or topical antifungal creams. Several physicians later has bag of medicines and persistent symptoms.

What Causes Recurrent Bacterial Infections?

The vagina has a normal micro-flora ecosystem consisting of 30+ co-existing strains of bacteria at any one time. Normally, the “good” bacteria known as lactobacilli predominate and are numerous enough to coat the entire vaginal mucosal surfaces forming a protective barrier. Lactobacilli make certain chemicals that provide additional defense against other organisms. These include lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other peroxidases which suppress the other “bad” bacteria normally present in the vagina to keep them at low concentration levels where they rarely cause harm. Problems arise when the lactobacilli do not thrive and a shift in bacteria milieu occurs. The 30+ other “bad” bacteria strains proliferate and dominate the micro-flora.  This results in one of several “Altered Vaginal Micro-Flora Patterns.” The “bad” bacteria that predominate in these patterns consist of a host of aerobic and anaerobic microbes; these include Escherichia coli (E. Coli), Klebsiella pneumonia, Enterococcus (Group D streptococcus), Staph  Epidermidis, Group B Streptoccocus (Beta Strep), Gardnerella Vaginalis, Bacteroides species, Peptostreptococcus species, Mycoplasma species, and many others.  The resulting secretions bathe the vaginal walls all the way down to and including the tissues surrounding the vaginal opening causing variable symptoms of discharge, odor, irritation, itching, burning, and urinary urgency/frequency depending on the innate sensitivity of the vaginal and external genital tissues.

You may be among many women who have visited their physicians multiple times only to be told over and over that you have a “bacterial infection” or “yeast infection” or alternating between the two.  Sound familiar?  In actuality, you may never have had either! Often there is no documentation of the diagnosis. The healthcare provider may have just told you that it’s recurrent bacterial vaginosis or yeast; well knowing they weren’t sure about the cause of your problem. By the time most women with these symptoms find a vaginal expert, they have a bag full of failed medications. While a very small percentage of women with these symptoms do have true recurrent bacterial vaginosis (BV), the vast majority do not. AND if you actually do have recurrent BV, there is an underlying condition in the vagina increasing the propensity for the recurrence which needs to be corrected! 

Often a course of antibiotics is prescribed when one the “bad” bacteria grow out on vaginal culture, a transient response may occur. But these organisms are not the cause of the vaginal problem; just one of the manifestations. The underlying cause of these perplexing symptom/s is that the vaginal mucosa is not in the best of health. You are probably wondering how this happened. There is a number of what FGI refers to as “vaginal insults” that can affect the health of the vagina mucosa. The full list of vaginal insults will be provided to you embedded in your personalized treatment protocol. If the vaginal insult was transient and the correct diagnosis truly was BV, then a standard course of proper antibiotic should have solved the problem. However, if the vaginal insult affects the vaginal nutrients is sustained, then the treatment needs to encompass that portion of vaginal health. At FowlerGynInternational, the approach is to fix the underlying vaginal problem as well to restore the normal flora to the vagina rather than providing a band aide for the symptoms.

Why Haven’t My Doctors Been Able to Fix Me?

The majority of healthcare providers are unaware of how to analyze for the vaginal constituents that are indicative of excellent vaginal health. The reason being, very few gynecologists specialize in the treatment of vaginal disorders. Plus preforming a quantitative wet prep analysis requires extra time, training, an advance set of skills and expensive phase-contrast microscopic equipment. The current standard of care utilized by practitioners still relies on antiquated vaginal “wet prep” method that has not changes in nearly a century and the characteristics that constitute altered vaginal micro-flora patterns go unrecognized.

Advanced Diagnostic Technology to Analyze Vaginal Fluids

In October of 2012, Dr. Fowler published a breakthrough in the understanding of the vaginal micro-flora analysis preformed under phase-contrast microscopy titled, “Quantification of normal vaginal constituents using a new wet prep technique.” He had been using this technique many years for women with vaginal symptoms but for the first time, the relative concentrations and constituents of what constitutes “normal” became known. This knowledge is essential because these patterns become the therapeutic goal of vaginal therapy. Prior to the release of this study, it was only inferred by clinical deduction as to what constituted healthy vaginal constituents.  Reference: R.S. Fowler. Quantification of normal vaginal constituents using a new wet prep technique.  J Low Genit Tract Dis. 2012 Oct; 16(4):437-441.

FGI will review your vaginal symptoms and general medical history questionnaire information and clarify the details on the phone with you, recommend the VFA Test if indicated, and create an individualized treatment protocol tailored to your condition with prescription medications! You can register either for “Virtual Services” delivered to the privacy of your residence or schedule an In-Office visit at FGI headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Expectations for Response

While FGI cannot guarantee full resolution or the degree of response to prescribed treatments which can vary from person to person, it takes 4 months before notable improvement may occur in the symptoms. If not, the vaginal rejuvenate therapy may need to be changed because the vaginal mucosa of every woman does not uniformly respond to the same type or dosage of therapy. A vaginal fluid analysis (VFA Test) at that time can best clarify how to proceed. Fortunately, most women do experience relief of symptoms with the first line of therapy individualized to their situation.
