Regardless of the cause, natural or surgical, a lack of estrogen will cause changes in a woman’s body. When hormone production decreases, the body goes through a variety of changes, including moodiness, lethargy, hot flashes, menstrual irregularity, osteoporosis, and vaginal dryness. Even though these symptoms may be occurring, only about half of women who experience these symptoms seek medical attention. This is a commonly overlooked and under-diagnosed condition that is often easily corrected.
While atrophic vaginitis is common, it is important to rule out any other possible causes. A thorough history and physical examination should be done by your physician. There are also some simple laboratory tests that can be done to identify this condition, including testing the vaginal pH and measuring of blood hormone levels.
