Later in life, in period of perimenopause and after menopause dryness and emaciation of vaginal walls can occur. This makes patients life harder and intercourse difficult. This condition crops up after operation and removal of the uterus and ovaries, after treatment of breast cancer.
The main reason for that is lower quantity of the estrogen hormone.
The treatment can be by using lubricants, by hormone therapy and lately by usage of lasers.
Laser therapy implies increasement of wetness and elasticity of vagina and the region of entrance to vagina.
