Sexual disorders can happen to both men and women. For women, it’s often due to vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA). Intimacy issues can affect a partner’s psychological wellbeing, just as much as it does with the one with the condition.
Dr. Parveen Vahora sheds light on vulvovaginal atrophy and how it affects women’s sexual health. “The truth is that many pre and postmenopausal women, and even women that have recently gone through childbirth, have vaginal disorders, like burning, dryness and pain that they often withhold and keep to themselves. Most women think that it’s just a ‘normal’ part of the hormonal process, but they don’t have to live with this condition! There are many options to relieve vaginal and vulvar atrophy.
“Due to the limited estrogen supply, the walls of the vagina start to thin out, causing dryness, and inflammation. The opening of the vagina is the vulva, and dryness of the vulva can cause pain at the onset of intimacy. intercourse can be very painful and cause urinary symptoms and pain. It can also interfere with daily activities for many women due to the extreme pain and discomfort that it can cause.
“There are many options for women, like creams, medications, and surgery, but they all pale in comparison to an innovative procedure that is not hormonal, has no side effects, and only takes a few minutes to perform right in the convenience of my office. This advanced technology is called the MonaLisa Touch®, and it’s helped countless women treat their vulvovaginal atrophy and associated symptoms and pain. Women get their confidence and sexual health back to how it was when they were younger.”
