Age-related hormonal changes in women can cause vaginal walls to become thinner. Thinner walls result in fewer cells that secrete moisture. Once that happens, severe vaginal dryness can occur. This condition makes sex difficult and often painful. If you’re having a difficult time in the bedroom and need a female dryness cure, our team at Horizons Health & Wellness may be able to help.
What Causes Vaginal Dryness?
Vaginal dryness is primarily caused by a decrease in estrogen levels. Estrogen is a vital hormone that begins to decline after age 40. Rigorous exercise, smoking, and having children can all contribute to lowered estrogen production. Thankfully, a decrease in this hormone doesn’t have to be an ongoing reality. Common medications such as antihistamines can also cause vaginal dryness.
What Are the Signs?
The signs of vaginal dryness can be most apparent right before intercourse. While troubling in and of itself, this problem can also be accompanied by urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, vaginal itching, and vaginal laxity. The severity of your symptoms depends on the particular cause of your issues. Women who have had multiple pregnancies may experience more severe symptoms than those who have low estrogen due to lifestyle choices.
How Can We Address Vaginal Dryness?
At Horizons Health & Wellness, we provide the effective MonaLisa Touch® Vaginal Laser system to treat various intimate concerns including vaginal dryness. This amazing device works by delivering gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue, stimulating a healing response by generating new collagen, elastin, and vascularization. This results in new vaginal tissue formation with more moisture, more elasticity (stretchiness), and improved thickness. The best part is that this treatment is non-invasive and can deliver results with little if any, downtime.
Along with this treatment, we also offer hormone replacement services that can gradually improve your vaginal concerns by rebalancing your system. This is especially helpful for women who are struggling with menopause as it can serve the dual function of easing hot flashes, improving sleep, and helping manage mood swings.
