A painless laser treatment for your most intimate body part can reboot your intimate life post-menopause!
While your post-menopausal years often bring greater freedom and free time at home, this stage of life introduces physical changes in and to your body that can affect your intimacy. It’s a well-known fact that your estrogen levels take a nose-dive during the menopause (defined as not having had a cycle within 12 months) and the years leading up to it (peri-menopause). In fact, more than one-third of women in perimenopause or who are post-menopausal, report having sexual difficulties, including less desire and difficulty in becoming aroused, and 50% report vaginal dryness, itching and burning. Although the complaint of “hot flashes” is one of the most well-known (and joked about) symptoms of menopause, one of the most overlooked symptoms is the decrease in sex and intimacy. Aside from the possible psychological symptoms (depression, anxiety, etc.) that can affect intimacy, there are many physical symptoms that can affect the vagina, making sex painful. The uterus can also prolapse and lead to discomfort, painful sex and urinary leakage.
