Vaginal Dryness: What are the Treatment Options?

If you’ve found that you are experiencing vaginal dryness, you may be experiencing hormone irregularities. Hormone levels can directly impact the amounts of vaginal moisture more than people realize, and these irregularities are often undiagnosed until symptoms become too difficult to manage alone.

Estrogen level fluctuations can impact your vaginal moisture due to childbirth, cancer treatment, hysterectomy, or menopause. Although vaginal dryness may often happen during your regular monthly cycle, as you enter menopause, the symptoms may become far too problematic for you to deal with on your own. If you are experiencing vaginal dryness, a more profound hormonal imbalance may be the underlying culprit. So, what are the treatment options for vaginal dryness?

Hormone replacement therapy is the most popular treatment for vaginal dryness. It involves the use of hormones that work as hormone level balancers to decrease the severity of your most challenging symptoms. Vaginal rejuvenation is another treatment option. The right treatment for you will depend on a number of factors.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy gets its name from hormones that are biologically and chemically identical to your own. These hormones are so similar to the ones that your body already produces because they are plant-derived and all-natural. The use of plant-derived hormones makes it easy to increase vaginal moisture without adverse side effects or additional risks.

As we previously mentioned, vaginal rejuvenation is yet another treatment option for vaginal dryness. At Plateroti Dermatology, we are proud to offer this treatment in the form of RejuVAnate, which is entirely non-surgical.
Frequent douching, a lack of sufficient foreplay, and a lack of sexual interest can cause vaginal dryness. However, if you are still experiencing the negative impacts of decreased vaginal moisture, consider reaching out to us at Plateroti Dermatology in Templeton. Contact us today to book an appointment and learn more about your treatment options.
