Vaginal Dryness Q & A

What causes vaginal dryness?

Vaginal dryness is usually associated with low estrogen during menopause, but it can affect women of all ages for a variety of other reasons, such as:

  • Childbirth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Immune disorders
  • Certain treatments for cancer
  • Smoking
  • Some medications
  • Douching and other irritants

When your vagina loses moisture, it can become dry and extremely itchy. Without lubrication, sexual intercourse can be very painful.

How is vaginal dryness treated?

It's possible that your vaginal dryness will respond to lubricants, moisturizers, prescription medication, or hormone replacement therapy. However, many women find these options only work for a little while or don’t eliminate the problem.

The providers at Womens Clinic LA may recommend treatment with MonaLisa Touch. The innovative laser technology effectively resolves the frustrating symptoms associated with vaginal dryness.

What are the symptoms of vaginal dryness?

When you lose lubrication in your vagina, symptoms of dryness become more pronounced. Some of the common complaints associated with vaginal dryness are:

  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Pressure
  • Discomfort
  • Stinging
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Bleeding after intercourse

How does MonaLisa Touch help with vaginal dryness?

The MonaLisa Touch laser has a probe that the nurse practitioners at Womens Clinic LA gently place into your vagina. You’ll be in the same position that you’re in when you have a pelvic exam so that you can relax on the table during the painless 30-minute procedure.

Laser energy pulsates into your vagina and stimulates your blood vessels and promotes a burst of new collagen growth. New healthy collagen helps rebuild the cell walls in your vagina and restore its natural moisture and lubrication.

How many treatments with MonaLisa Touch are needed?

Nurse Raisa or Nurse Mallory develop a treatment plan for your vaginal dryness that addresses the causes and unique symptoms you are experiencing.

You’ll get the most favorable results by following the recommendation to get three treatments over the span of 18 weeks. After just one treatment, you’ll begin to feel much better. At the conclusion of your third MonaLisa Touch procedure, your vagina will be rehydrated, and functionality will be restored.
