Vaginal dryness affects nearly 50% of women between the ages of 40 and 60, and is a contributing factor in low libido during menopause. Vaginal dryness is not an inevitable side effect of menopause, but is often a consequence of imbalanced hormones and poor diet. Luckily, those imbalance hormones are easily fixed with hormone replacement therapy. HRT is a safe and effective way to stop vaginal dryness and return to comfort.

What Causes Menopause Vaginal Dryness?
Vaginal dryness can be highly uncomfortable and often makes sex painful. Some symptoms are soreness, burning and itching, and painful urination. Normal vaginal secretions are necessary for overall daily comfort and sexual health. Additionally, a woman’s normal vaginal secretions are acidic, which helps prevent infection. If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, you could be at a greater risk for yeast infections and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Fluctuating and unbalanced estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels are the primary causes of menopausal vaginal dryness. Low estrogen and high progesterone levels trigger a drying and thinning of the vaginal wall. In addition, low levels of testosterone, which are common during menopause, negatively impact muscle tone in the vagina, and results in decreased sexual sensitivity.
Are HRT Treatments for Vaginal Dryness Effective?
Hormone replacement therapy is the most effective treatment for menopausal vaginal dryness. Hormone replacement therapy offered by Global Life Rejuvenation has helped countless women eliminate vaginal dryness and regain their sex drives.
While hormonal imbalances in perimenopause and menopause are the primary causes of vaginal dryness, poor nutrition and exercise can also be factors. Our hormone replacement therapy physicians deliver programs that not only restore hormonal balance, but offer customized supplements, nutrition, and fitness guides to maintain this hormone harmony.
Is HRT Safe?
It’s important to remember that even though it’s called hormone replacement therapy, we never replace someone’s hormone level to what they had when they were younger. Our process is to give a very small amount of hormones to alleviate symptoms and make people feel better.
HRT is completely safe if taken for the right reasons and under the guidance of a regular practitioner. You may have heard of archaic studies saying that HRT increased the risk of heart disease, cancer, or other maladies.
