  • Washington DC - The Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders

    Has anyone been to the Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders in Washington, DC? I see that the ICN carries Dr. Goldstein's book. I am calling there tomorrow to make an appointment -- IC & VV out of remission and on the warpath stemming from a shingles attack in November which went into post herpetic neuralgia. It looks like the Center treats all of those things. I live in Chantilly, VA.

    Thanks and God's Blessings to All --

    Hi there. No I haven't been there. The urologists I tried in DC itself was the GW doctors. I saw a urologist in Reston and another in Fairfax as well.

      Anna - thanks for the reply. Were any of the urologists that you saw in the area able to help you at all?

        They were good. I live and work too far from the urologist in Reston though. It's the Urology Group.

          I just started going to the GynoUrologist group in Fairfax. My Dr. is Dr. Von Pechmann, and the group is Mid Atlantic Pelvic Surgery Associates. I have found more relief going the non-medicated route and by changing my diet via whole-foods elimination diet.

          Diagnosed with IC since 2008. What I'm doing: 1. Reduce Stress (Sleep...10:30 bedtime MAX 2. Diet: Free of Grains, gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, some nightshades, and I avoid foods on IC list when possible, although IC-list foods don't bother me as much as these other things do. 3. What do I eat? At first the garbanzo bean pattie was my staple (http://tinyurl.com/bddoas4, look for my post). Now I'm on the Auto Immune Profile diet/AIP (Google 'Paleo mom AIP' for more info). 4. IC THESIS: IC is for me and many of us, a systemic issue. I'm looking into Hormone probs, Food intolerances, Leaky Gut, Candida, and oxalate issues. 5. Chronicle of my journey: Read about my ongoing learning here: http://www.weallseeic.blogspot.com I kiss my family every day. Stay positive everyone. I know we can beat this! IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT MY USER NAME: I had to redo my registration/username because I messed something up on my original registration (Something to do with my signature? HTML codes? Blah blah blah. Donna and I tried to figure it out, but alas, we decided the best thing I should do is just get a new userid. My new user ID is minharopaola+
