Vaginal atrophy occurs most often after menopause. Vaginal atrophy not only makes intercourse painful but also leads to distressing urinary symptoms.
To Prevent Vagina Atrophy;
Increase Water Intake
Reversing vaginal atrophy by drinking more water helps increase natural lubrication.
Drinking plenty of water helps hydrate your body by flushing your skin and cells with much-needed nutrients. Water increases your natural vaginal moisturizer, resulting in reduced discomfort.
Daily exercise helps flush the body of toxins and increases serotonin levels.
Research shows that estrogen and serotonin are connected
Participating in daily exercise such as aerobic exercise, running, and yoga help increase serotonin levels and vaginal estrogen at the same time.
Serotonin is the happy hormone and helps regulate your mood. As hormones fluctuate, many women experience depression, anxiety, and mood swings in addition to vaginal atrophy.
One of the hardest habits to quit is smoking, but the health benefits are clear.
Smoking leeches the vaginal tissues of moisturizer and estrogen.
Not only does it decrease estrogen levels, but it may also lead to osteoporosis, among other health problems.
Stay $xxually Active
It’s natural for your $xx drive to decrease when suffering from vaginal atrophy.
Experiencing painful $xxual intercourse harms $xxual health and relationships.
However, $xxual activity increases blood flow to the pelvic floor and tissues.
When the vaginal tissues have regular blood flow, it can increase natural moisturizers and lubricants.
If $xxual intercourse is too painful, stretching the vagina with a vaginal dilator is a remedy for vaginal atrophy.
Avoid Perfumed Products
Some perfumes, soaps, and detergents have synthetic chemicals that may irritate and dry the skin.
Also, some vaginal lubricants and spermicides can dry the vaginal tissues when inserted. It’s better to avoid these products when they may increase the burning sensation associated with vaginal atrophy.
