Vaginal Dryness & Laxity

Vaginal Dryness & Laxity occurs when the tissues of the vagina are not well lubricated, resulting in pain and discomfort. This can be caused by aging, hormonal changes, childbirth, breastfeeding, medication, surgery or stress.

Common symptoms include painful intercourse, soreness, bacteria and yeast infections, light bleeding after intercourse and low sexual desire. Treatment starts with improving the circulation of the pelvic floor and relaxing the pelvic floor muscle group.

Vaginal Dryness & Laxity or VDL occurs when the tissues of the vagina are not well lubricated and healthy. 

Common symptoms include:

  • Pain or discomfort during intercourse
  • Bacterial or yeast infections
  • Soreness, itchiness or burning of the vagina 
  • Light bleeding after intercourse
  • Low sexual desire

Common causes of VDL are:

  • Changes in hormones 
  • Menopause or Perimenopause
  • Breastfeeding
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Depression
  • Excessive stress
  • Childbirth
  • Rigorous exercise
  • Immune system disorders, such as Sjögren syndrome 
  • Some cancer treatments, such as radiation to the pelvis, hormone therapy, or chemotherapy
  • Surgical removal of the ovaries 

Who is this treatment for?

Vaginal Dryness & Laxity (VDL) could happen to any woman, but is very common during the menopause transition affecting over half of post-menopausal women aged between 51 and 60. VDL can happen at any age for several reasons as a result of decreased levels of estrogen.

Estrogen levels could drop due to:

  • Childbirth and breastfeeding
  • Radiation or chemotherapy 
  • Surgical removal of the ovaries
  • Anti-estrogen medications used to treat uterine fibroids or endometriosis
How is treatment done?

Treatment is done by increasing vaginal moisture and discharge through increased circulation of the pelvic floor and lower structures. 

Is treatment painful?

Not at all. Treatment is done fully clothed, in a non-invasive, non-surgical approach using HIFEM technology.

How soon can I see results?

Results can be seen as soon as 2-3 sessions, however studies show an average of 8 sessions.
