You Can Now Reduce Dryness ‘Down There’
If you are dry ‘down there,’ you are not alone. Countless women notice changes in the vaginal area during and after menopause. Women can thank declining estrogen levels for the common, yet uncomfortable, vaginal dryness symptom. Women living in the Plano, Frisco and Dallas, Texas communities can find relief with MonaLisa Touch™ vaginal revitalization, a long-lasting, safe and effective female dryness cure available at Mona Lisa Partners.
What Causes Vaginal Dryness?
Before the unwelcome stages of menopause, the skin and tissues around the vagina are kept moist and healthy by fluids and mucus produced by glands at the neck of the womb. Estrogen, the main female hormone, affects these glands and vaginal tissue. Estrogen plays an important role in keeping the vaginal tissue thick, elastic and properly hydrated.
During menopause, the ovaries begin producing less estrogen. The decline in estrogen levels causes thinning of vaginal tissue and a reduction in fluids from the glands, leading to vaginal dryness, itching and burning. The dryness also causes many women to experience painful intercourse because the tissue is thinner, drier and less elastic.
In addition to menopause, estrogen levels can drop from:
- Cancer treatment
- Surgical removal of the ovaries
- Childbirth and breastfeeding
- Anti-estrogen medications for the treatment of endometriosis and uterine fibroids
An Overview of Female Dryness Cures
Female dryness cures have been around for many years and continue to advance as the medical world and technology evolves. Vaginal dryness caused by decreased estrogen levels can range from a mild annoyance to a severe irritation that causes spotting during and after intercourse.
Depending on the severity, there are numerous female dryness cures available to women. Common female dryness cures include topical estrogen treatments, vaginal moisturizers and vaginal lubricants. Lubricants and moisturizers are an effective way to reduce vaginal dryness, but they are not considered convenient for many women.
