How to Cure Your Unwanted Vaginal Symptoms

Your delicate hormone balance can be easily thrown off by aging, medications, and health conditions. This can lead to several unpleasant vaginal symptoms like dryness, itching, pain, urinary incontinence, painful intercourse, and changes in the appearance of your vagina.

Medications used for insomnia, hypertension, anxiety disorders, and colds can also cause symptoms like vaginal dryness and itchiness. Birth control pills can have a negative impact on your hormones, especially when they lower estrogen in the body or disrupt the estrogen/progesterone ratio.

Our specialist at NUWA WORLD, Dr. Uzoma Nwaubani, regularly treats women with unpleasant vaginal symptoms. Below, we explain what treatments are available to manage your unwanted vaginal symptoms

MonaLisa Touch® 

MonaLisa Touch is a laser that stimulates collagen and elastin production in your vaginal walls. The laser also promotes cell regeneration, which can remove many unwanted vaginal symptoms. 

The procedure is painless and minimally invasive. It takes around 5 minutes to complete and doesn’t come with any downtime. Many women experience significant changes after just one session. 

If your vaginal symptoms improve, you can opt for maintenance treatments once or twice per year.

Hormonal replacement therapy

A drop in estrogen is one of the main reasons why you experience unwanted vaginal symptoms. The combination of progesterone and estrogen used in hormone replacement therapy can increase collagen production in the vaginal walls. 

In addition to improving your vaginal health, hormone replacement therapy prevents bone loss and fights menopausal symptoms. 

Not everyone is a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy. However, if you don’t have a blood clotting disorder or a history of reproductive cancer, bioidentical hormones may help reduce your unpleasant symptoms. 

Lifestyle changes 

During your consultation, we’ll ask about your medical history, what supplements and medications you take, and whether you’re going through a lot of stress. Poorly managed diabetes and Sjögren's syndrome can also be at the root of your unwanted vaginal symptoms. 

If you have an underlying condition that needs to be managed or if you take medications that interfere with your hormones, we can put together a personalized treatment plan that won’t negatively impact your vaginal health. 

Often, changes as small as cutting refined sugar out of your diet and eating homemade meals as opposed to processed foods can have a big impact on your hormonal health.

Don’t let your vaginal symptoms run their course 

If your unwanted vaginal symptoms are lowering your life quality, know that you have ways to fight off the discomfort. Contact our office in Wildwood, Florida, by phone or online to schedule an appointment. We’ll help you determine the root cause of your symptoms and provide you with steps you can take to improve your well-being.
