About Vulvar and Vaginal Atrophy
Women produce less estrogen after menopause. When estrogen levels begin dropping, vaginal walls become thinner and less lubricated, and some women experience vulvar and vaginal atrophy. Vulvar and vaginal atrophy can result in vaginal irritation, dryness, dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse), discharge and bleeding after sex.
Dyspareunia, or pain experienced during sexual intercourse, can be a bothersome symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy. Based on a survey of 200 women transitioning through menopause, approximately one in three reported experiencing dyspareunia. Dyspareunia typically does not subside without treatment.
