Vaginal Atrophy Symptoms & Treatment Options

If you have given birth to one or more children and/or are post-menopausal, you may find yourself experiencing discomfort from sexual intercourse or facing a host of symptoms caused by vaginal atrophy. According to Medical News Today (MNT), vaginal atrophy affects up to 75 percent of all women after menopause, but it can also affect women after child birth. Although this condition is common, women often do not seek medical advice, probably because they see it as a normal sign of aging or due to the taboo surrounding discussions of sexuality and aging, explains MNT.
