Vagina and Vulva Clinic

Clinic Manager: Dr. Oshrit Bert

The vagina and vulva clinic in the Kaplan Medical Center clinic center is a part of the wellbeing clinics for maternity and labor in the Kaplan Medical Center.

We believe that women have the exclusive privilege over their bodies, the right to receive complete information about the problem they suffer from and the right to be central partners in taking the responsibility for the right course of treatment.

Complaints originating from the vagina and vulva are common amongst women and one of the major reasons that women refer to the OB/GYN, but it is not always solved immediately.

The concept “vaginitis” relates to a spectrum of situations that cause vulva and vagina symptoms. These symptoms include itching, vaginal secretions, burning, pain, pain during sex and constant discomfort.

Even though vaginitis does not usually derive from life threatening medical conditions, it has significant implications over the wellbeing, loss of work days, disruptions of sexual function and of the body image among many women.

In addition, it was found that certain generators of vaginitis are related to an increase of additional health dangers, like an increase of sexually transmitted disease transference and implications over infertility and other obstetrics dangers.

Despite of the importance of this medical field, the diagnosis and treatment of vaginitis are lacking – women suffering from vaginitis visit many doctors and practitioners searching for a solution for their problem. Often, there is a delay of years until a correct diagnosis, during which the woman suffers great discomfort, which significantly harms her wellbeing. It is important to mention, that vulva and vaginal diseases are usually chronic and require periodical follow up and evaluation, among other things, due to an increase of the risk for malignance.

Additionally, the clinic treats women who suffer from pain during sexual intercourse.

Pain during sexual intercourse is a common phenomenon, but it is a silent one. We estimate that a large percentage of women (5%-10% of fertile women, and up to 40% after menopause) suffer from pain during sexual intercourse.

Some of these disruptions are called Vulvodynia and are more commonly known as vulvar vestibulitis syndrome. The correct treatment in Europe and the USA today includes a combined therapy – medical, physical therapy, psychotherapy and surgical therapy. In the clinic, we offer an option to diagnose and treat women suffering from Vulvodynia. Starting from the problem diagnosis, through an extensive explanation about the nature and implications of the problem, and continuing to recommendations of a multi-disciplinary treatment, adapted for each patient.

During the visit to the clinic we get a complete picture of the patient’s medical background and ask questions in order to receive a complete medical picture from which the woman suffers. It is recommended to bring a list of former relevant exams and treatments, if these were made. We will perform a physical examination which includes observation, culturing, and performing a microscopic smear. If necessary, a biopsy under local anesthetics will be performed. The clinic provides a diagnosis answer, an adapted treatment plan and recommendations for a suitable periodic follow up.
