With temperatures that regularly dip below single digits during the winter, Maple Grove residents understand the importance of moisturizing their skin to prevent discomfort.
But, what can you do if you’re suffering from vaginal dryness? First, you can relax, since the Nuvell Clinics team is here to help. Next, take a deep breath and let’s take a closer look at the underlying problem.
What Causes Vaginal Dryness?
As the name implies, vaginal dryness occurs when the clear fluid normally secreted to maintain lubrication and healthy tissue is reduced, or completely absent altogether. This can result in painful intercourse, itching, and burning.
Vaginal dryness is a common condition experienced by about one-third of women during menopause—a number that only increases for postmenopausal patients. In these instances, it’s often a result of low estrogen levels, which also thin the vaginal tissue and decrease its elasticity.
In less frequent instances, though, vaginal dryness can also result from childbirth, breastfeeding, and anti-estrogen medications, to name just a few.
What Treatments Are Available if You’re Suffering From Vaginal Dryness?
The specific treatment for vaginal dryness largely depends on the underlying cause. For example, if it’s a result of low estrogen levels, your physician may prescribe estrogen replacement therapy.
At Nuvell Clinics, we often recommend that patients suffering from vaginal dryness consider the FDA-approved FemiLift procedure.
Here, a device outfitted with a 360-degree rotating laser at one end is inserted into the vaginal canal, which works to heat the surrounding tissue, boost collagen production and elasticity, maximize circulation and tissue strength, as well as improve lubrication and PH levels. Patients can also expect reduced itching and burning related to vaginal dryness, along with boosted sexual satisfaction.
Despite all of these potential benefits, FemiLift is an in-office procedure that—other than a mild warming sensation during the process—causes no discomfort or side effects and requires no downtime.
