Vulvar dermatitis can include: follicultis, contact dermatitis, vulvar atrophy, lichen sclerosus, Bartholin gland cysts, and more.
If you are experiencing persistent redness and itching on or around your vulva, we can help you determine the cause and find a treatment that will work for you. Vulvar atrophy is a condition associated with menopause. As your hormone levels change, so do the cells in your genitals, often resulting in dry or brittle vaginal tissue. Our providers are able to work with you to treat this effectively.

- What are our options for conceiving?
- Should we consider IVF infertility treatment?
- How expensive is IVF infertility treatment?
And many others questions. We help our reproductive health patients navigate the emotional rollercoaster of fertility struggles.

A normal menstrual cycle occurs every 21 to 35 days and can last from 2 to 7 days, and can sometimes be somewhat irregular without being considered a serious problem. Menstrual irregularities involving absent menstrual periods, painful menstruation, or severe premenstrual symptoms can be caused by a number of things, including:
- Breastfeeding and pregnancy
- Eating disorders
- Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
- Uterine fibroids
- Premature ovarian failure
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed, make an appointment so we can help to diagnose and treat the problem.
If ovaries are damaged or stop functioning normally it can result in an insufficiency of estrogen or progesterone, both of which are required for a number of beneficial effects to the function of the body.
