Going through menopause can be an overwhelming time in a woman’s life. Your body is changing, and you simply don’t feel like yourself. While there are multiple symptoms that you’ll go through from hot flashes to trouble sleeping, one that many women seek help for is vaginal dryness. Once the symptoms have subsided, you’re often left with a dryness that can result in itching, burning, and discomfort during sex. Here we’ll learn a little about why it occurs and the best vaginal dryness treatment.

Why does vaginal dryness occur after menopause?Happy old couple smiling and hugging

Vaginal dryness due to menopause is a result of reduced estrogen levels. There is a thin layer of fluid that allows the walls of the vagina to stay lubricated. As estragon levels get low, the amount of moisture that keeps the vaginal elasticity and thickness in a healthy place begins to drop, leaving you dry. This can cause discomfort because of the itching and burning that can result from the lack of moisture.

Ways to combat vaginal dryness after menopause:

While some women think that there is nothing they can do about vaginal dryness after menopause, so they push through the symptoms, we’re here to tell you there is something you can do. Here are a few vaginal dryness treatments that you should discuss with the team at Laser Skin & Wellness if you’re ready to feel like yourself again.

Feminine lasers

Juliet is a feminine laser that works to stimulate specific areas of your vaginal wall to restore and improve the connective tissue, as well as the mucosa. It’s a quick and painless treatment that doesn’t require anesthesia and only takes around fifteen minutes. We understand that you want the procedure to be discreet, and we respect you and keep all treatments confidential. Most women experience the healing time to be about three days and will only require one treatment. However, your doctor will let you know if you need more than one appointment for the most effective results.

Diet and exercise

Your current health can play a role in vaginal dryness after menopause, so it’s important that you take your diet and exercise routine seriously. Regular exercise promotes blood flow, as well as hormone balance. Pair that with a diet high in fatty acids, and vitamins A and B, your body will be better prepared to regulate estrogen levels. Before changing your diet and exercise routine, talk to your doctor about the goals you hope to achieve so that they can guide you in the right direction.
