Serious Complications of Vaginal Atrophy

Serious Complications of Vaginal Atrophy

I have had husbands literally plea with me to help their wife because their wife was too embarrassed or feeling hopeless that anything could be done. And they weren't "begging" for themselves! Sure, their intimate relationship is important to them... but they also just want their wives to be okay.

And this is really a smart way to think because Vaginal Atrophy can have some very serious consequences.

When estrogen declines, and Vaginal Atrophy sets in, the normal vaginal pH changes and becomes LESS acidic. This effects the entire vaginal MICROBIOME and reduces the concentration of the beneficial flora that live inside a healthy Vagina - specifically Lactobacilli.

When the microbiome is altered like this, growth of organisms that cause vaginal infections, unusual odors, and vaginal discharge can occur.

In time, Vaginal Atrophy results in Drying up the URETHRA (the tube we urinate from) AND ends up causing Urethral ATROPHY as well! This becomes very serious the older we get.

As our Vagina gets dry, it SHORTENS and retracts upward and inward. THEN... you know what must happen at that point. Our Urethra starts retracting up too - getting closer to the Vaginal opening. This puts the Urethra even closer to the Anus... for which is a primary identified source of contributing E-coli causing many Urinary Tract Infections.

This sets a woman with Vaginal Atrophy up for serious Urinary Tract Infections, and she may not even know it!

I can't even count the number of female patients I have cared for who suffered from a serious SEPTIC episode stemming from a Urinary Tract Infection. In fact, 25% of all cases of Sepsis are caused by Urinary Tract Infections.
