Vaginal Rejuvenation/Vaginal Dryness
Good evening ladies! Let’s talk about down under your “Vajayjay”
Have you noticed that things down under are different from what they have previously been?
For example, have you noticed dryness, burning, or sometimes irritation in the area after sex? Have you noticed diminished lubrication during intimate times? Have you noticed that things don’t seem as fulfilling physically in the bedroom, though you’ve had the same partner? Some of these symptoms could be attributed to vaginal and pelvic floor laxity.
Excuse me for my description of our wonderful female parts. However, due to internet rules and my love for Grey’s Anatomy, I thought Vajayjay would be a perfect description for this blog. I’m Dr Gina Kirkpatrick, a Board-Certified Urologist with a Fellowship and Specialization in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.
Today I would like to discuss Vaginal Rejuvenation.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term that covers several vaginal corrective procedures. These procedures are meant to correct problems that can occur after giving birth or during the aging process. Conditions can include:
Laxity (lack of tightness) of the vagina
Stress urinary incontinence
Lack of lubrication
These conditions have traditionally been corrected surgically and with supplementation of vaginal estrogen or hyaluronic acid. However, with the advent of laser modalities of treatment, the treatment regimen has evolved to include laser vaginal rejuvenation.
Viveve I Laser Trial utilizing monopolar radiofrequency for vaginal laxity in premenopausal women, 18 years of age or greater, with at least one full-time vaginal delivery and normal genital pelvic exam, concluded that a single treatment of therapy was found to be safe and associated with both improved vaginal laxity and improved sexual function. Nine study centers in Canada, Italy, Spain, and Japan participated.
In addition, there has been anecdotal data that supports claims that patients have improvement in leakage of urine with coughing, laughing, sneezing and exercise after vaginal laser therapy.
Let’s be clear. No one NEEDS vaginal rejuvenation. This is a condition that should be addressed if you are not satisfied with the appearance of your genitalia, have noted laxity or looseness of your genitalia or note that lubrication has diminished. However, If have symptoms that interfere with your ability to empty your bladder. If you notice blood in your urine or are having multiple urinary tract infections, you should seek care from your Primary Care Physician and referral to a General Urologist for further evaluation.
Otherwise, if you are affected by the issues discussed above and live in the Central Florida or Orlando area, I would love to see you in consultation at NV Medical Orlando, (407) 730-4244
