In search of a female dryness solution?
Burning or itching sensations, post-coital bleeding, and pain or discomfort during sex can all be symptoms of vaginal dryness, also known as vaginal atrophy. The umbrella term is quite broad, and it encompasses a wide range of symptoms of varying severity. Before we look for a female dryness cure, let us first understand what is causing this problem.
When does vaginal dryness occur?
Female dryness can occur in short bursts and is linked to anxiety, allergic reactions, dehydration, and even the use of cold or flu medication. However, low estrogen levels are almost always the root cause of long-term vaginal atrophy. This can happen while:
- Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding
- Surgical menopause with the removal of the ovaries
- Cancer treatments or taking anti-estrogen drugs
How does this happen?
The ovaries are the primary source of estrogen in the body, which helps to keep the vaginal lining thick, elastic, and lubricated. It becomes thinner, less elastic, and dryer as estrogen levels fall. Dehydration can cause the lining to change color in some cases. Some estrogen drops are caused by medication, but female dryness is mostly caused by natural hormonal shifts.
What can you do about vaginal dryness?
According to a 2017 article in Climacteric, an estimated 40% to 50% of all peri-menopausal and post-menopausal women experience vaginal dryness. However, less than 4% of women investigate treatment options. Lubricants and over-the-counter moisturizers are excellent first-line treatments, but they may not be sufficient. Although there is no magical cure for female dryness, treatments can help to relieve pain and discomfort. One of the best solutions is the FemiLift Vaginal Laser Treatment. This treatment is minimally invasive, painless, and has the potential to significantly improve symptoms.
