What Are Possible Symptoms of Menopause and Atrophic Vaginitis?

Some women may experience mild menopause symptoms. Others may feel uncomfortable from time to time, and still other women may feel discomfort to the point that it affects their daily lives and their ability to be intimate. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may have atrophic vaginitis. Some symptoms of atrophic vaginitis are:

  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Itchiness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pain during intercourse

Seventy-five percent of women state these symptoms negatively affect their daily lives, but 63 percent of women were not aware atrophic vaginitis is a chronic condition. Sadly, 44 percent reported that they did not visit their gynecologist for a diagnosis and treatment. 

What Is the MonaLisa Touch Procedure?

MonaLisa Touch procedure treats atrophic vaginitis and gives women back their confidence and comfort with themselves again. The MonaLisa Touch procedure uses a laser vaginal rejuvenation, which stimulates the collagen in the vaginal walls to rehydrate and restore functional tissue. 

During the procedure, a vaginal probe is inserted and provides a gentle laser treatment that helps heal the vaginal wall. The treatment only takes about five minutes, and no anesthesia is needed. Just a light vibrating sensation may be felt during the procedure.

Women may need one to three treatments, depending on the seriousness of their symptoms. Sexual intercourse should be avoided for three to four days afterward the procedure, but the results can last as long as a year. The procedure can be repeated after a year, upon recommendation of your doctor.
