What is Vaginal Atrophy?

Vaginal atrophy, or atrophic vaginitis, is a condition caused by a decline in estrogen levels. It's often associated with menopause but can occur at any time when estrogen production decreases.

Here are some common symptoms of vaginal atrophy:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain or discomfort during intercourse
  • Itching or burning in the vaginal area
  • Vaginal irritation or inflammation
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Light bleeding after intercourse

Estrogen is vital for maintaining the health of the vaginal tissues. As women age, their estrogen levels begin to drop, and this can lead to vaginal atrophy. The cells of the vaginal wall can thin out and lose their integrity, making them more susceptible to injury.

Yikes, right?

What Causes it?

As mentioned before, vaginal atrophy is caused by a decrease in estrogen levels. This decrease can be due to various reasons such as:

  • Menopause
  • Breastfeeding
  • Certain medications (e.g. antidepressants, chemotherapy)
  • Surgical removal of ovaries
  • Radiation therapy
  • Cancer treatments

So, if you're experiencing any of these factors, it's important to pay extra attention to your vaginal health and keep an eye out for symptoms of vaginal atrophy. It's always better to catch it early on and start treatment as soon as possible.

Vaginal Atrophy Treatment Myths

Alright, folks, buckle up and get ready to separate fact from fiction when it comes to vaginal atrophy treatment! We're diving deep into the myths and shedding some light on this topic.

Myth #1: Nothing Can Help Vaginal Atrophy

Truth: This is simply not true. While vaginal atrophy may be a common condition, there are many effective treatments available to help manage and alleviate symptoms.

Myth #2: Lasers are the Best Treatment for Vaginal Atrophy

Truth: Laser treatment is an option and has gained popularity in recent years, but it's not the only one, nor is it necessarily the best one for everyone.

  • It's expensive.
  • It's not always covered by insurance.
  • There's not enough evidence to support their effectiveness in treating vaginal atrophy.
  • The FDA has issued warnings about the safety and effectiveness of laser treatments for vaginal atrophy.

So, while lasers might seem like a high-tech solution, they're not the magic bullet they're often made out to be.

Myth #3: The Best Cream for Vaginal Dryness Is Estradiol

Truth: While estradiol is commonly prescribed to treat vaginal atrophy, it's not the only option and may not be the best one for everyone.

  • Some women may experience side effects such as headaches or breast tenderness.
  • It can increase the risk of blood clots and certain types of cancers in some women.

Talk to your doctor about all the possible treatment options available to you before deciding on one that works best for you.

Myth #4: Hyaluronic Acid Is the Miracle Cure for Vaginal Atrophy

Truth: Hyaluronic acid may be a popular choice for many women, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution.

  • It may not work well for women with more severe cases of vaginal atrophy.
  • Some women may experience irritation or allergic reactions to the acid.

While hyaluronic acid may work for some, it's important to consider other options as well.

Let's Bust These Myths!

Now that we've debunked these common myths about treating vaginal atrophy, let's talk about what actually works.

Treatment 1: Vaginal Estrogen Creams

One of the most effective treatments for vaginal atrophy is estrogen therapy. This can come in several forms, but one of the most common is a vaginal cream. Enter our superstar, Silky Peach Cream!

This vaginal atrophy cream contains estriol, a gentle yet highly effective form of estrogen. It works by replenishing the estrogen your body is missing, helping to restore the health and integrity of your vaginal tissues. And yes, it's bioidentical, meaning it has the same chemical structure as the estrogen your body naturally produces.

Our cream, the Silky Peach Cream, is packed with organic ingredients and free from parabens. Each pump delivers about .5 mg of estriol, and we recommend starting with two pumps daily.
