Menopause is one of the inevitable periods of life for women. The average age of menopause in our country is around 49. If we assume that the expected female lifespan is 75 years, we see that women spend one third of their lives with menopause.
The main problem in the body in menopause is that the estrogen hormone is no longer produced by the ovaries.
Chronic estrogen deficiency affects many parts of the body.
are some of them.
The area most affected by estrogen deficiency is the genital organs. Thinning of the vaginal tissue, vaginal dryness (Vaginal Atrophy), sagging of the genital lips, and urinary tract wear often occur.
*Recurrent fungal infections are seen due to dryness and wear.
* Vaginal dryness causes painful sexual intercourse and disrupts the sexual and social life of the woman.
* After a while, itching occurs in the dry and worn vagina. This is an unpleasant condition that is compelling and constantly felt. (Pruritus vulva)
* Atrophy findings in the urinary tract cause recurrent urinary tract infections and urinary incontinence.
*This menopausal picture caused by estrogen deficiency is called ‘genitourinary syndrome’.
*All findings increase as the number of years spent in menopause increases!
What can be done in the treatment of vaginal and urinary atrophy seen in menopause.
*Hormone Replacement Therapies can be used because there is a missing Estrogen Hormone.
The place of laser in menopause and vaginal dryness?
Vaginal Laser is the method of applying laser energy into the vagina with the help of a special probe.
Laser beams open microtubules in the vaginal tissue and cause regeneration in the vaginal tissue with a controlled stimulus. After laser stimulation, fibroblasts in the vaginal tissue begin to rapidly synthesize collagen and elastin. The new collagen fibers formed help tighten and strengthen the vaginal tissue. Thanks to the renewed cells, the moisture balance of the vagina is ensured. The healthy vaginal flora is formed again.
In this way, vaginal dryness is eliminated and the pelvic floor tissue is supported, so urinary complaints are reduced.
