Conditions We Treat
Vaginal atrophy is the thinning, inflammation, and drying of the vaginal tissue that comprises the vaginal walls. Vaginal atrophy typically occurs as a result of the decrease in the production of estrogen in the body, which is why it commonly occurs as a result of menopause.
Vaginal atrophy causes a variety of issues, including:
- Vaginal discharge
- Burning sensation
- Painful urination
- Painful intercourse
- Increased rate of urinary tract infections
Often described as a feeling of “looseness,” vaginal laxity is an issue characterized by the weakening of the vaginal tissues, resulting in stretched-out and sagging tissue. A primary cause of this is a decrease in the production of essential proteins like collagen and elastin that help to keep the tissues strong and tight.
Vaginal laxity can also occur as a result of:
- Vaginal birth
- Sexual trauma
Vaginal laxity is a very common condition that affects nearly 76% of women at some point in their lives. Issues related to vaginal laxity include:
- Loss of sexual satisfaction
- Decrease in sex drive
- Decreased stimulation
Vaginal dryness can be caused by a wide variety of factors. One of the most common causes is a decrease in the production of estrogen. This occurs naturally as a result of aging and menopause.
Certain medication, breastfeeding, treatments for cancer, and other factors are known to cause vaginal dryness as well. While it can be difficult to talk about vaginal dryness with your medical provider, there are effective treatments we offer that can provide the relief you need.
Hormones are vital chemicals that the body depends on for a variety of essential functions and purposes. Certain amounts of specific hormones are needed to keep the body regulated. As the body ages, it slowly decreases hormone production, leading to hormonal imbalances. Menopause can also cause hormonal issues.
Some of the common issues caused by hormonal issues include:
- Decreased sex drive
- Weight gain
- Joint pain
- Sleep issues
Menopause is a natural part of life for women. However, that does not mean that going through menopause is easy. The symptoms caused by menopause can significantly diminish the quality of life, and changes in hormonal levels can also increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and the development of osteoporosis.
Menopause is also known to cause:
- Vaginal atrophy
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal laxity
Labial Enlargement and Laxity
Every woman develops differently, which means there is no “normal” labia shape. However, some women may find that they are unhappy with the appearance of their labia due to characteristics such as size or appearance. Enlarged or sagging labia can also cause irritation or discomfort during exercise or may make intercourse painful and unsatisfying. These issues can lead to problems with intimate relationships and self-esteem.
Surgical Correction by Labiaplasty
Loss of bladder control can be an embarrassing issue that occurs at the most inconvenient of times. Many woman experience leaks when they laugh, sneeze, cough, or lift heavy items. Urinary incontinence can be treated using Emsella, a unique treatment that can tighten the muscles responsible for bladder control to help prevent incidents of leaking.
It can be difficult to discuss your sexual health, but remaining silent or avoiding the topic – and the issues you are experiencing – provides no benefits. Many individuals experience difficulty with intimacy, while others may be unhappy with their partner.
Many individuals have gone through traumatic events such as sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse that have significantly impeded their ability to be intimate with others. Discussing and working through these issues in a safe and comforting environment can provide significant benefits.
Decreased Libido: While fluctuations in sex drive are normal, many women experience a noticeable and consistent decrease in their sexual drive. This includes being disinterested in sexual activity with a partner as well as masturbation. Other symptoms include a lack of sexual desire and fantasies that persists over time.
