Perhaps you’re transitioning through menopause and looking forward to a sex life that’s free from the hassle of periods. Or maybe you’ve been through pregnancy and are looking forward to rebooting your sex life. Instead, you’re met with vaginal dryness that takes the pleasure out of sex.
Our experienced team here at Ego in Modesto and Lodi, California, hears you loud and clear, which is why we offer a range of vaginal rejuvenation services that can combat vaginal dryness, especially as you get older.
Here’s a look at this very common issue and how we can help to restore your sex life when you’re struggling with vaginal dryness.
The first point we want to make about vaginal dryness is that you’re not alone. Approximately 17% of women ages 18-50 report vaginal dryness. This number jumps considerably as women age. In fact, more than half of postmenopausal women encounter vaginal dryness.
Perimenopause and menopause occur when women are in their 40s and 50s, and begin when the ovaries, the primary producers of estrogen hormones, start to shut down. The level of this reproductive hormone drops considerably during this time.
The connection between vaginal dryness and the drop in estrogen is no coincidence. This hormone ensures that your vaginal tissues are lubricated, healthy, and elastic.
So, if you’re over 40 and experiencing vaginal dryness, the drop in estrogen is likely to blame. That said, there are other drivers of vaginal dryness, such as certain medications like antihistamines and antidepressants, as well as cancer treatments.
Whatever led to the problem, there are solutions.
There are several ways in which we address vaginal dryness, including:
We offer TempSure™ Vitalia, which uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to restore vaginal health. The RF energy passes harmlessly through the surface of your skin and gently heats the tissue below.
This heating action creates a call for collagen, which is the protein responsible for support and tone in your tissues. With renewed collagen, your vaginal tissues are stronger, healthy, and better lubricated.
We can also turn to the O-Shot to boost the health of your vaginal tissues and encourage lubrication. With the O-Shot, we draw a sample of your blood, isolate the platelets, and then inject the concentrate of platelets into your vaginal tissues.
The platelets release powerful growth factors that call on regenerative resources within your body to improve tissue health. This treatment can lead to improved sensation (innervation), as well as vaginal lubrication.
Since hormones are largely responsible for vaginal dryness, it makes sense to replenish these hormones to encourage lubrication. We offer several different types of hormone replacement therapies that can boost your hormones for improved vaginal tissue health.
Outside of these highly effective solutions, we can also sit down with you to discuss using lubricants and how a little more foreplay can help greatly with vaginal dryness.
