Vaginal Dryness/Vaginal Atrophy
Essentially, vaginal atrophy is a medical term referring to the thinning of the vaginal walls. This occurs during menopause. Before menopause, the vaginal lining looks bright red, plump, and moist. However, when estrogen levels start to decline, as is the case during menopause, the vaginal lining becomes light pink, thinner, less elastic, and drier. Vaginal atrophy can be associated with vaginal dryness, irritation, itching, and/or pain during sexual intercourse.
At Medica Pharmacy & Compounding, we can provide compounded hormone therapy to treat vaginal atrophy and other menopausal symptoms. Vaginal lubricants and local vaginal hormone creams are also good treatment options for vaginal atrophy.
