The most common symptom with vaginal atrophy is dry vaginal walls, but you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Irritated vaginal tissue
- Discomfort during sexual intercourse
- Discomfort during urination
- Discomfort during activities
It's common to get one or more of these symptoms during different periods of your lifetime as estrogen production is subject to change. The most common occurrence is during menopause, but you may also experience symptoms during periods of high stress while breastfeeding or during medical treatment.
Problems linked with vaginal dryness impact quality of life negatively. However, there is a solution.
