Diminishing estrogen levels are the leading cause of vaginal dryness, which can affect any woman. However, it is prevalent in over half of post-menopausal women over 50. Natural lubrication is produced by glands near the cervix and helps keep the vagina moist and healthy. The moisture moves down through the vagina, keeping it clean and getting rid of dead cells. While vaginal dryness rarely indicates a severe medical condition, it is best to seek help if the dryness lasts beyond a few days or if you experience pain during sexual intercourse. If left untreated, it can cause sores or injury to the vagina’s tissues. Skinlastiq Medical Laser Cosmetic Spa offers various treatments to improve common feminine health issues.
