Vaginal Dryness Q & A
What is vaginal dryness?
Have you experienced changes in your vaginal health since menopause? You’re not alone. As many as half of postmenopausal women have the same experience. That’s because perimenopause and menopause are times of lasting and significant changes in your hormones.
Hormonal changes, a loss of estrogen in particular, often cause vaginal dryness. As your estrogen levels drop, your vaginal tissue loses lubrication and elasticity. The lining of your vagina becomes thinner and dryer. These changes can affect your self-confidence and your vaginal health.
What are the symptoms of vaginal dryness?
You may experience some of these common symptoms with vaginal dryness:
- Burning sensations
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Mild urinary incontinence
You may also experience a feeling of looseness or laxity in your vagina.
How is vaginal dryness treated?
The practitioners at The Women's Specialists of Fayette offer a noninvasive laser therapy called MonaLisa Touch® to restore vaginal lubrication. MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue, stimulating a healing response and generating new collagen, elastin, and blood vessels in your vagina. A typical course of treatment is three procedures over 18 weeks.
MonaLisa Touch helps to restore natural lubrication without hormones, downtime, and with minimal side effects. In clinical trials in Europe and the United States, women experienced relief from their symptoms after the very first treatment — and reported even greater improvement after the second and third treatments.
What happens during MonaLisa Touch?
Your treatment is provided in the offices of The Women's Specialists of Fayette. Each treatment takes under five minutes. The treatment isn’t painful, and doesn’t require anesthesia. Afterward, you may feel slight discomfort for a few days. You’ll need to avoid certain activities, such as lifting weights, physical exercise, or hot baths for a few days after treatment.
What results should I expect from MonaLisa Touch?
After treatment, most patients enjoy:
- A reduction in vaginal dryness
- Fewer burning sensations
- Less pain during intercourse
- An improvement in urinary symptoms
Most also report their quality of life is significantly better.
If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, there’s no need to suffer in silence. Take a step for your overall wellness today by calling or scheduling a consultation with The Women's Specialists of Fayette.
