Vaginal Atrophy FAQs

What is Vaginal Atrophy?

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.

What are the symptoms of Vaginal Atrophy?

Common symptoms of Vaginal Atrophy include discomfort in the urinary tract as well as the vagina. Other symptoms may also include:

  • Vaginal dryness or burning
  • Excessive thick, creamy discharge
  • Constant itching in the genitals
  • Pain or bleeding during or after sexual intercourse
  • Frequent need to pee
  • A stinging or burning sensation when passing the urine

What are the causes of Vaginal Atrophy?

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.

Can vaginal atrophy be treated?

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:

  • Creams or suppositories that are to be applied into the vagina;
  • Pills and other oral medication to promote estrogen production.
