Vaginal Atrophy is the condition when the female body stops producing enough estrogen, causing the walls of the vagina to get thin, dry, and inflamed. Also known as genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), this mostly happens during or after a woman experiences menopause. In some cases, however, some may even experience it after childbirth. Due to its combined symptoms, GSM is a condition affecting both the vagina and urinary tract.
Common symptoms of Vaginal Atrophy include discomfort in the urinary tract as well as the vagina. Other symptoms may also include:
The primary cause of GSM or vaginal atrophy is the drop in the levels of estrogen produced by the female body. There are many extended causes of this drop in estrogen levels, like, being on certain medications that diminish the production of estrogen, hormone changes (natural or artificial), etc. Medicines and hormones used in the treatment of breast cancer, endometriosis, fibroids, or infertility reduce estrogen levels significantly.
However, this condition mostly flares up for women above the age of 50 during their phase of menopause.
Absolutely! Thanks to the innovation in medical sciences and with advanced medical technology and medications, vaginal atrophy treatment is possible. As a preventative measure, your doctor may recommend regular vaginal intercourse, especially during menopause. This helps to stimulate the vaginal muscles and promote blood flow in the organs, aiding in reduced discomfort.
Separately, vaginal atrophy treatments may include estrogen therapy, in which a specialist can recommend various options based on your condition and symptoms. These may include:

I was a little annoyed with the nearly hour-long wait, but Dr. Grover immediately apologized and explained that they have someone new on staff and had been running behind all day. We discussed my current health as well as family health history in her office before going to the examining room. The appointment itself was fast (not *too* fast– just efficient), and Dr. Grover made me feel very welcome and comfortable, as did the admins working in the office.
Dr.Grover was really nice and inviting. Going to the doctor may be nerve wrecking however she makes you feel calm. She explains everything she is going to do before she does it to put your mind at ease. I will definitely be going back to her.
She was awesome. 1st time I enjoyed going to get a pap! Haha. Highly recommend her!
