Vaginal atrophy is a series of natural changes which take place in the vagina as women age and their estrogen levels decrease. With women living much longer than they did in previous eras, vaginal atrophy has become a major concern in the women's health community. In addition to being a quality of life issue, this condition can also lead to complications in the urinary tract, some of which can become quite serious if they are not addressed.
Atrophic vaginitis, as it is also known, sets in around the time of menopause. As estrogen production declines, the tissues in the vagina become dry, thin, and shrunken. This can cause aches and pains, and it tends to make intercourse unpleasant because suitable lubrication is not available. This can cause a decline in sex drive, which can be a concern for women and their partners. The atrophy can also spread to the urinary tract, leading to difficulty urinating, bloody urine, and other problems.
Over time, the vulvar tissue loses its tightness and skin can begin to sag. The loose skin, called laxity, is very common among women. In addition to occurring naturally with age, factors like genetics, trauma, weight loss, and childbirth can all affect the laxity of the tissues surrounding the vagina.
Many women have painful intercourse at some point in their lives. The medical term for painful intercourse is dyspareunia (dis-puh-ROO-nee-uh), defined as persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. Dyspareunia is a pain you experience during sexual intercourse or other sexual activity that involves penetration. The pain may be superficial or deep. It may result from vaginal dryness or disorders of the genital organs. If you have experienced these symptoms and have not addressed these with your healthcare provider, Dr. Kalpana Desai is prepared to help you though these issues. She can diagnose your symptoms with a free consultation that involves reviewing you medical and surgical history.
