Possible Origins of Vaginal Dryness
Countless women from across the globe are affected by vaginal dryness but most remain reluctant to seek advice or a cure. This might be because they believe vaginal dryness is an inevitable feature of the menopause or pre-menopause and just has to be accepted. The good news is you no longer have to put up with vaginal dryness as there is now a revolutionary new laser treatment which has been proven to significantly reduce this distressing symptom.
Vaginal dryness occurs when oestrogen levels are lowered, typically leading up to and during the menopause, causing the vaginal walls to become thin and dry and to lose elasticity. These combined symptoms lead to vaginal dryness, urinary symptoms and an increased risk of vaginal infections. However, probably the most profound symptom is pain on intercourse.
Some skin conditions, such as Lichen Sclerosis can also lead to vaginal dryness.
Many women who have undergone treatment for breast cancer, due to not being able to take hormonereplacement therapy, are also at risk of developing vaginal dryness, aside from the effects of the menopause.
