Genital dryness is normalized in postmenopausal women, i.e., those who have gone through menopause. However, it can also occur during any stage of a woman’s fertile life (childbirth, for example).
The consequences of the appearance of genital dryness outside of menopause can be, among others: states of hypoestrogenism (amenorrhea), chronic use of hormonal contraceptives, after childbirth or breastfeeding, and after oncological treatment with radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
In addition, women who have had both ovaries surgically removed to treat or prevent cancer, for example, are more prone to vaginal dryness.
The symptoms associated with this pathology are uncomfortable and may present as: abnormal vaginal discharge, vaginal burning or itching, pain during sexual intercourse and frequent and painful urination. Vaginal dryness is associated with repeated vaginal and urinary tract infections.
In the integrative gynecology consultation, a global study of the woman is carried out, analyzing her case in depth, and all the therapeutic options available are evaluated for a completely personalized follow-up.
