As women age and our bodies begin to produce less estrogen, it is common to suffer from vaginal dryness. Whether due to menopause or simply in relation to an estrogen imbalance of some kind, vaginal dryness can lead to a number of issues that take a toll on a woman’s quality of life and even affect her intimate relationships. Dr. Russo can help you identify the cause and find the best solution for you.
Causes of Dryness
In addition to the many other changes occurring in the body during the aging process, vaginal dryness after menopause is almost expected. But women who have been through childbirth, are breastfeeding, and even cancer survivors who might have had chemotherapy treatment often suffer from vaginal dryness as the hormone fluctuations the body naturally experiences in those times also affect the natural lubrication and moisture produced by the vagina. Additionally, hysterectomy, use of certain medications, certain autoimmune disorders, douching, and even lack of foreplay can lead to vaginal dryness; so finding the exact cause will be the best course of action in finding an effective method of treatment.
The most common symptoms include:
- Light vaginal bleeding following sexual activity
- Vaginal discomfort such as burning, soreness, or itching
- Vaginal pain during intercourse
In addition to causing painful intercourse, vaginal dryness is linked to other areas of vaginal health, as it is often a sign that the walls of the vagina are thin or have been damaged. Another issue that often arises is urinary incontinence, as the lack of moisture, thinness, and lack of strength leaves the supportive structure compromised and unable to maintain full control of the bladder.
