Read on to learn more about Atrophic Vaginitis and how to cure as well as prevent it.
Signs and symptoms of vaginal dryness included dryness, itching, burning and pain or light bleeding with sex. Vaginal dryness occurs fairly frequently—four in 10 menopausal women observed these symptoms. Even in non-menopausal women, dryness can happen because of reduced estrogen, allergy medication, cigarette smoking, lack of sleep and douching.
According to Dr. Eddie Concepcion, a medical doctor and acupuncturist of the Oasis Acupuncture Clinic, you should see a doctor if you frequently experience this condition. “Even in non-menopausal women, dryness can happen because of reduced estrogen, allergy medication, douching and even the fluctuation of weather patterns,” he states. “Female moisture is a sign of good health so any imbalances will cause dryness. They may not be serious but it’s still worth looking into, especially if you have vaginal burning, soreness or painful sexual intercourse.”
Cure and Prevention
Go see your family doctor or gynecologist first. The doctor will determine the cause, whether it’s due to an infection, decreased estrogen, or an allergy. Normal treatments include estrogen creams and hypoallergenic water-soluble lubricants. However, for most, the best cure is having more intercourse (Yay!).
