The Role of Hormones in Vaginal Loosening: Unpacking the Biological Factors
When women think of menopause and hormones, they find that there is a lot to unpack. Hormones are responsible for a lot of different changes that the body undergoes – especially when it comes to vaginal health. Many women find that once they reach menopause, they no longer enjoy certain activities as much as they once did – such as sexual intercourse. There are many reasons why hormones play quite a big role in this situation and what can be done about it in order to help combat these concerns. From taking hormone replacements to looking into certain procedures such as vaginal loosening, there are ways to combat the discomfort and lack of satisfaction that can come with reaching menopause.
What Can Hormones Affect?
Hormones, such as estrogen, are responsible for a lot of different systems in the body. The one that is most affected by these hormones, however, is the reproductive system. When women hit menopause, the production of these hormones slows down, and the body does not make as much of them as it once did. This can, of course, be a happy time for some women – after all, menopause can signal the end of menstrual periods, so why not celebrate? However, for other women, menopause can be a time of mourning or a source of pain, discomfort, and ill health. Most of that has to do with hormones.
Hormones and Vaginal Atrophy
One of the main concerns that women who are dealing with menopause symptoms may have is how the health of their vagina may decline. They can find themselves dealing with dryness and lack of interest in sexual activities, as well as pain and discomfort during those activities. One cause of this is vaginal atrophy, which can occur when there is a hormone imbalance in the body.
Vaginal atrophy is, quite simply, when the tissue and walls of the vagina become thinner. The tissues of the vagina can also become drier, which is a cause for concern during sexual activities – after all, that is sure to cause pain and discomfort. Another concern that women who suffer from vaginal atrophy notice is how much more fragile these tissues become, and if women aren’t having much sexual intercourse, it can even result in the vagina itself becoming shorter and narrower – something that can lead to even more pain and discomfort.
Hormones and Atrophic Vaginitis
Atrophic vaginitis is a condition that occurs when the lining of the vagina atrophies, thus causing certain conditions relating to the vagina, such as redness, swelling, inflammation, and even discharge. These symptoms are common among women who are dealing with a lack of certain hormones, often related to menopause.
How Can Vaginal Loosening Help?
Around fifty percent of women who have been through menopause have reported feeling painful sexual encounters. Since pain and sex should never go hand in hand, a solution for this concern is something that all women should know about. Vaginal loosening is a procedure that can help those who suffer from hormone-related vaginal dryness and tightness that is causing discomfort and pain. The procedure, which is also referred to as the Intimate Renewal, is a revolutionary procedure that was developed to help women who are dealing with this condition.
Vaginal loosening works through the use of combined laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, hormone supplements and medications, and a surgical procedure – all tied together into a treatment that will help alleviate concerns of vaginal dryness, pain, and discomfort. The procedure is not a quick fix but rather a system that you will continue to use to help treat the issues you are facing.
Vaginal loosening is a procedure that has a one hundred percent success rate among the women who opt to get the procedure. This is very impressive; in fact, many women who are dealing with severe vaginal dryness and discomfort during sex have found that opting for this treatment, which loosens the vaginal canal to make penetration pleasurable again, find that their lives have improved significantly because of it.
