Vaginal Rejuvenation After Menopause: Why You’re Not Too Old
You’ve already gone through the “life change” and entered a new phase, yet you’re not happy with your vagina. Whether it’s the appearance of your not-so-taut vagina or the fact that the loss of elasticity in that area is causing urinary stress incontinence or painful sex, you’re not too old for vaginal rejuvenation.
Reviving the Vagina After Menopause
You’ve tossed out all your tampons, but that doesn’t mean you should stop caring about your vagina. Vaginal laxity, when the vagina stretches out but doesn’t bounce back due to childbirth, age, genetics or other factors can cause a host of issues that bother women regardless of age.
Nearly half of all menopausal women experience dyspareunia, which is pain, burning or a tearing during sex. When estrogen levels decrease after menopause, vaginal dryness can lead to issues in the bedroom and your personal life. Even if you’re done with menopause, a vaginal rejuvenation or dyspareunia treatment can greatly improve your sex-life and satisfaction.
Requirements for Vaginal Rejuvenation
Age is not a factor when it comes to vaginal rejuvenation, health is really what matters. In order to qualify for this procedure, women must be in good overall health and have no cardiovascular conditions.
How Older Women Benefit from Vaginal Rejuvenation
Aging does not just involve wrinkles and graying hair; the vagina can also lose its firmness. Vaginoplasty can tighten both the opening of the vagina and firm up the surrounding muscles, improving a woman’s sex life and alleviating other associated issues, such as urinary stress incontinence.
While dryness is a common struggle for many aging women, there are solutions for a lack of sexual satisfaction and pain during sex. Vaginal rejuvenation can provide relief for women suffering from dyspareunia after menopause.
Are There Any Risks Associated with Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Like any surgery, vaginoplasty does carry some risks. Bleeding, infection and scarring are some of the side effects that may occur. Yet, laser procedures have eliminated many of the problems with bleeding and antibiotics help minimize infection risks.
