Now which woman has never experienced the impact of dryness at least once in their lifetime?
Sometimes it feels so dry that inserting a tampon hurts.
Sometimes you wish you were more lubricated during sex, so that sex can be more pleasurable and not painful.
Sometimes the constant daily dryness after menopause makes you itch frequently and also gives you an uncomfortable discharge.
In fact many times, many women experience this. But do many women seek medical attention for this?
This is what we call the Big Silence.
What Are The Symptoms Of Vaginal Dryness?
Urinary burning or irritation- more UTI (urine tract infections)
Tightening of the vaginal opening – more stretch pain during intercourse
More vulval tears during intercourse
Entrance or deep pain during intercourse
How Can Vaginal Dryness Be Improved?
Yes they can be improved through the use of the following:
– that are designed to reduce friction and discomfort from dryness during sexual intercourse
–that formulated to allow water to be retained in the vaginal tissues and used of a regular basis
Platelet Rich Plasma& Hyaluronic acid
We’ll introduce you to Vaginal lasers & Platelet Rich Plasma & Hyaluronic acid here:
In particular CO2 vaginal lasers have been very well studied and shown to improve vaginal dryness.
Often a set of 3 sessions are required. They are conducted 1 month apart.
The lasers are painless. Doctors during the procedure will ask you about pain and discomfort as the lasers are applied.
There is no down time. You can proceed on with regular activity. Of course with the exception of sexual intercourse which we inform you to abstain from for at least 3 days.
PRP & Hyaluronic Acid
This uses a mixture of platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid that is injected painlessly into several areas of the vulva.
So what is Platelet rich plasma?
Platelet rich plasma is the good stuff that contain a whole lot of growth factors and platelets that are great for collagen production and moisture rejuvenation and tissue growth.
It is obtained from your own blood. So what happens is a doctor take a tube of blood from you and this is placed in a special tube and this tube is then spun down at high speeds for a few minutes in a special centrifuge.
This hyper spin separates the red blood cells from the plasma which is platelet and growth factor rich. Your doctor will be careful to draw out only the glorious platelet rich plasma leaving aside the unwanted red blood cells.
This platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be sprayed directly into the vagina after CO2 laser is done or injected into several parts of the vulva.
