Alternative Treatment of Vaginal Atrophy – Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause


The vagina is the muscular part of the female genital tract that plays a very important role in channeling the route during menstruation, intercourse, and childbirth. Due to its role in childbirth, it is also called the birth canal. The vagina is elastic and muscular, but in vaginal atrophy, it loses its elasticity and becomes thin, dry, and swollen. There are many reasons behind the vagina losing its natural properties. Those reasons are explained in this article along with the symptoms that are seen in vaginal atrophy women. Ayurvedic medicines are also detailed for the management of this condition.


Vaginal atrophy or Atrophic vaginitis is defined as thinning, drying, and inflammation of the walls of the vagina. Vaginal atrophy is mostly seen in women experiencing menopause and includes abnormal symptoms of the genital as well as urinary tract, thus is also known as genitourinary syndrome of menopausal women. Not all menopausal women or women heading toward menopause feel these symptoms of vaginal atrophy. Some women may have started feeling some of the abnormal symptoms in perimenopause age and will feel total discomfort soon after menopause.

A lubricated vagina is necessary for sexual intercourse to happen, but a dry vagina in Vaginal atrophy makes intercourse very painful for women. Women with bad habits of smoking and drinking, surgical delivery, and lack of sexual intercourse for a long period are more likely to suffer from Vaginal atrophy, but the situation depends on other factors too.
