Vaginal Atrophy

Vaginal atrophy, also known as atrophic vaginitis, is a common condition that affects many women, especially those going through menopause or undergoing cancer treatment. When vaginal tissues become thin, dry, and inflamed, discomfort, pain, and other symptoms may arise.

Several factors can contribute to vaginal atrophy. The most common cause is the natural decline in estrogen levels during menopause. However, vaginal atrophy can also result from certain medical treatments or conditions, including breast cancer treatment, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and hormonal therapy. Additionally, lifestyle factors such as smoking, sedentary lifestyle, and poor nutrition may increase the risk of vaginal atrophy.

The severity of symptoms of vaginal atrophy varies from person to person, and some women may experience no symptoms at all. Common symptoms of vaginal atrophy include vaginal dryness, itching, burning, and pain during intercourse. Additionally, some women may experience urinary symptoms such as urgency, frequency, and recurrent urinary tract infections.

Treatment options for vaginal atrophy include estrogen therapy, pelvic floor exercises, PRP injections, and CO2 Fractional Laser therapy. Please consult Venus Clinic for the treatment plan that suits your needs.
