Vaginal atrophy causes thinning of the vaginal tissues which become more fragile and less elastic. A progressive modification of the structure of the tissue is a consequence of the lack of estrogen.
During menopause, the lack of estrogen reduces the lubrication of the vaginal tissue.
Vaginal drynes: a feeling of lack of natural lubrication.
Intimate itching: intimate itching results from vaginal atrophy that persists and tends to get worse.
Painful sexual intercourse (dyspareunia): involves a number of psychological consequences.
