Vulvovaginal atrophy is associated with thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to decreased production of estrogen during menopause. It can also develop during breast-feeding or in younger women with decreased estrogen production. The condition often affects sexual health, making intercourse painful, and the urinary system which often result in urinary tract infections (UTI). The symptoms of Vulvovaginal atrophy includes vagina dryness, itching or burning sensation of the vagina, pain during intercourse and spotting or bleeding. The condition is diagnosed based on your symptoms, medical history and physical examinations.
At early stages, symptoms of Vulvovaginal atrophy can be relieved with topical moisturisers or lubricants. However, if symptoms do not improve, the doctor may prescribe typical or oral estrogen medication. Alternatively, a non-surgical non-invasive laser treatment for Vaginal Tightening and Rejuvenation can relieve symptoms associated with Vaginal Atrophy by rejuvenating the vagina tissues to improve the function of the vagina. This Vagina Laser Rejuvenation is a pain-free and quick solution that treats a range of gynaecology conditions caused by ageing and problems arising from post pregnancy. The goal of the treatment includes alleviating symptoms and improving the quality of life. To find out more, please click here.
