I thought I was going to have to live with my condition forever, and then I found Dr. Fowler who gave me my life back…So let me start from the beginning (four years ago). For about four years, with increasing severity I was experiencing chronic yeast infections, bacterial infections, and was extremely sensitive to anything touching my vaginal region. I was getting at least one yeast infection per month sometimes multiple, and the bacterial infection truly never went away. Things got to the point where I no longer wanted to be intimate with my husband because I was self-conscious of the "fishy" odor, yeast secretions, and itching that would disrupt my sleep. It made exercise uncomfortable, and no matter what I did I could smell my own odor which made me think others around me could smell it as well. I saw over four different gynecologists and multiple doctors and all of them treated the symptoms, but never were able to explain why my condition was constantly coming back. I changed my diet, switched to only cotton panties, wore loose fitting clothing, spent hundreds on probiotics, tried homeopathic remedies and absolutely nothing worked. I knew there was an underlying reason for what was happening to me, but no one was able to give me an explanation, let alone advise if I could truly be healed. I became very depressed, was miserable, and had all about lost hope for myself and felt so awful for my husband who never once complained. So I tried one last thing, which was to turn to Google and start researching my condition to see if there was a specialist who could possibly treat me. I was desperate and was willing to fly anywhere in the world if that meant I could be treated. That was when I found Dr. Fowler after months of dogged research. I flew to see him in January 2017 and he not only told me what I had but that I would be healed. Now in January 2018 I feeling I am about 80% better and will soon me at 100%. Dr. Fowler restored my hope, gave me my life back, and I am forever thankful for him.
I encourage any woman having similar issues to consult with Dr. Fowler and follow his protocol. My symptoms have drastically improved in a four month period, much to my surprise, after suffering for 28 years with painful intercourse , it was actually excruciating. There was pain other physical activities. Also, the external tissues were dry and would crack which was a huge problem. I saw multiple physicians were talking 10-12+ with no hope for improvement. I had given up. My new obgyn referred me to Dr. Fowler, with the advice, "He is the only person who can help your situation". He diagnosed me with vulvodynia and Lichen Sclerosis. After four months on being on Dr. Fowlers protocol, I'm elated at the physical changes. I am 100% better already. Now I don't think about my vagina alt all. Dr. Fowler just gave my only wish for Christmas which was that I now get to wash my hair in the shower rather than the sink! Without hesitation I recommend Dr. Fowler.
Before I found Dr. Fowler, I was in so much pain. I had been to several doctors in my area, but no one could help me. My Gynecologist finally concluded that she had no idea what was wrong with my vagina. I had been treated for yeast and bacterial imbalances for a year and a half without any improvement. After much prayer, I was lead to Dr. Fowler. Just prior to my first visit, I wrote the following about my symptoms: 'The swelling, irritation and soreness has made exercise difficult and intercourse with my husband very infrequent. Wearing underwear and even pants is usually very uncomfortable. I do not like to sit for more than 5-10 minutes at a time because of discomfort. I can no longer live without pain each day, and have tried every possible medication to fix this problem.' Dr. Fowler and his staff were beyond kind and understanding. I was given specific medications and instructions for my personal recovery. Now, 4 months later, I am SO much better! I can exercise and be intimate with my husband again. My symptoms are vanishing more and more each day and I feel completely encouraged. Dr. Fowler was an answer to my prayers. I loved that he could perform tests that explained what was happening with MY body, so that we could develop a specific plan for me. The best part of that plan is that it has WORKED. My heart is full of gratitude and hope. While these ailments are devastating for those of us who have them, there is help and healing!
Four months ago this was my reality: I am constantly wet from discharge and feel self-conscious because sometimes the wetness from the discharge will soak my underwear and slightly go through my pants. I am always uncomfortable because it's a constant issue that repeated antibiotics and holistic treatments are not resolving. It is very costly as a college student to continue tests and treatments. I feel gross and do not want to conduct sexual activities. It's a dull but continuous itch/discomfort where I am always aware of and thinking about the issue... Now, because of the understanding and treatment by Dr. Fowler, I feel 80% better. My symptoms are minimal, I don't think about it and am not as self-conscious about my vagina. I feel confident that my issue of IV can be fully resolved and I can get back to living my life normally. I'm beyond grateful for Dr. Fowler's knowledge and help!
I am so thankful I found Dr. Fowler over two years ago. Months after delivering my second child, I began to have a lot of discharge accompanied by burning and itching at the vaginal opening. Sex with my husband was not possible without repercussions or worsening of symptoms. Tests at my regular ob-gyn came back positive for a high bacterial count and I was put on antibiotics. This would help temporarily and the problem would always return. I was on antibiotics pretty regularly for close to 7 months before I started to research solutions. I knew that the long term antibiotic use was not ideal and was most likely making my problem worse long term by getting rid of the beneficial bacteria in my body. Within a few months after seeing Dr. Fowler, my symptoms improved 80% and by 8 months I was 100% better and have remained symptom free for the last two years. If you have had problems for years and have lost hope, please come see Dr. Fowler. It is worth the trip:) I don't believe there is anyone better at helping with these issues.
