Alright ladies, let’s talk about something that doesn’t get enough attention – vaginal health, also known as vulvovaginal atrophy. We’ve all heard about the mood swings, weight gain, sleep problems and hot flashes that come with menopause, but have you heard of vaginal atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy is a medical condition that can lead to dryness in your lady’s part, that is often compared to the dry conditions of the “Sahara desert”, or some like to call it, “the desert down there”.
The culprit most often to blame for vaginal atrophy and vaginal dryness?
Estrogen. That is LOW levels of estrogen. This is when the vagina becomes thinner and less elastic. Thinner walls means fewer cells that produce moisture, which results in dryness.
You may ask, “is vaginal atrophy the same as vaginal dryness?”
Not exactly. While vaginal atrophy is one of the common causes of vaginal dryness, vaginal dryness refers to a sensation of dryness or discomfort in the vaginal area. Vaginal dryness can be a symptom of vaginal atrophy, but it can also occur on its own.
Post-menopausal vaginal atrophy is a common condition that affects many women but it’s kind of an embarrassing topic to start off with, so right here, right now, let’s shine a light on this topic and start the conversation.
There are several other factors that can contribute to this condition, which is also called urogenital atrophy, including:
During menopause, the ovaries produce less estrogen, resulting in less blood flow and a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin to the area.
Radiation and chemotherapy treatment for cancer can cause damage to the ovaries and lead to a decrease in estrogen levels.
The hormonal changes that occur during breastfeeding can cause vaginal dryness and thinning of the vaginal tissues.
Certain medications, such as anti-depressants and anti-estrogens used to treat breast cancer can cause a decrease in estrogen levels.
Smoking, a diet low in fruits and vegetables and a lack of exercise can all contribute to vaginal atrophy.
Vaginal atrophy can cause more than just painful intercourse for many women; it can also lead to distressing urinary symptoms. The condition causes both vaginal and urinary symptoms. Want to find out if you’re experiencing vaginal atrophy? The indicators include:
