Vaginal dryness: Causes, symptoms, and treatments
Vaginal dryness is a particularly common problem in the period just before and after menopause. However, insufficient vaginal lubrication can occur at any age in a woman’s life, for several reasons (pregnancy, breastfeeding, etc.), as it is sometimes a symptom of vaginal atrophy, which is thinning and inflammation of the vaginal mucosa due to a decrease in estrogen. Along with vaginal dryness, a woman may suffer from itching and a burning sensation around the opening and at the bottom of the vagina.
This is a disorder that can have a profound impact on the quality of a woman’s sex life and beyond. While other typical symptoms of menopause, such as hot flushes, generally decrease over time, vaginal dryness tends to worsen because it is caused and sustained by the hormonal changes that have taken place.
Symptoms of vaginal dryness may include the following:
- pain, or slight bleeding during intercourse
- decreased desire
- difficulty in reaching orgasm
- frequent desire or urgent need to urinate
- frequent occurrence of urinary tract infections.
At Medimall Clinic we apply the innovative RF Radiofrequency treatment with radiofrequencies, which act on the walls of the vagina, stimulating microcirculation in the area. Completely safe and without any health side effects compared to other methods, thanks to its action, growth factors are released which give a signal to the tissue to repair and regenerate. By improving both the thickness of the vaginal wall and its tone, the urethra is also better supported, treating mild incontinence. At the same time, the production of collagen is achieved which gives elasticity and firmness to the genital area, essentially treating dryness and its unpleasant consequences.
