Just imagine that our vagina can "get depressed", It is enough for our mind to see the image of it crying or complaining.
However, this term refers to two conditions in female sexual health: vaginal atrophy and Vulvodynia.
It is a common but treatable condition that causes the vaginal wall to thin out.
And although it can be a problem for women of any age, it is more likely to affect women who are going through, or have been through, menopause.
This is because the body produces less estrogen than normal, which has an effect on how the vaginal wall behaves.
Vaginal atrophy can also occur in women who have been treated for cancer, especially those who have had hormone treatment for breast cancer, according to information from the Mayo Clinic.
Common symptoms include discharge, burning, itching, difficulty urinating and pain during sex.
According to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists This condition is pain or chronic discomfort (constant and for a long time) in the vulva, and almost one in four women suffer sometime in their life.
The symptoms that characterize it are:
1. Pain or burning
2. Sensation of stitches and extreme sensitivity
3. Discomfort only to the touch or when you introduce the tampon or having sex
4. The appearance of the skin of the vulva may be normal or reddened
If you suffer from any of the symptoms mentioned, the best thing you can do is go with your gynecologist to make an assessment and determine the treatment to follow.
To watch your intimate hygiene is to take care of your health.
