Women for Women Medical Associates Offers Non-Hormonal Therapy for Vaginal Dryness

In addition to procreation, sex is meant for pleasure. After going through the menopausal transition, many women often have a decline in estrogen levels and therefore experience vaginal dryness and discomfort with sexual intercourse. This vaginal pain and discomfort with sex is known as dyspareunia. 

Dr. Jewel Amui-Bellon of Women for Women Medical Associates, LLC offers many procedures to care for dyspareunia including hormone replacement therapy. Using the lowest effective dose, this will manage the symptoms and shorten the duration of the discomfort. Other agentsincluding selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMS), low dose antidepressants, lubricants and the MonaLisa touch--a non-hormonal vaginal laser therapy, are also available. 

While many people think this is a natural part of the aging process, it is quite the contrary. The life expectancy of women is at least 88 years, and there is no reason why they need to hold back on sexual intimacy as they age. There is hope for uncomfortable intercourse and sex can be fun again.
