Top Form Tuesday: Vaginal Health Plan verses Vaginal Medical Therapies
Estrogen levels decline in vaginal tissues during menopause, which may lead to vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA) and contribute to pain during sexual intercourse. Women with vaginal pain, especially with hormonal therapies have to continue getting pap smears, as one of the side effects of these hormonal therapies could be newly abnormal discharge or an abnormal pap. For women wanting to treat vaginal health before they get to the stage of needing medication: that begins many years before menopause, and may involve preventative care with therapies such as MonaLisa Touch or PRP therapy.
