What is Vaginal Atrophy (Atrophic Vaginitis)?
Vaginal atrophy, or atrophic vaginitis, is the result of a significant estrogen deficiency, which results in thinning, burning, inflammation, and drying of the vaginal walls. In this state the vagina weakens and shrinks, causing extremely painful sexual intercourse that can even result in bleeding. Increased urinary tract infections can also be a sign of atrophic vaginitis. Often, we see vaginal atrophy in women who are postmenopausal, but that is not the only condition that can cause the body to have low estrogen levels. Some women are just genetically prone to lower levels of estrogen. Often vaginal atrophy symptoms go undiagnosed, and many women don't realize there are treatments and it can be reversed. BioMoi antibacterial silicone vaginal dilators for atrophy can be used to naturally strengthen the vaginal walls and gradually get you back to having comfortable sexual intercourse.
