It’s not uncommon to have an occasional vaginal issue like a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis, but what if you’re having symptoms regularly?
That could be a sign that you are suffering from vaginal atrophy or lack of estrogen. This naturally happens from menopause, in which your body no longer makes enough estrogen to support your vaginal tissue. You may be surprised to learn that it also happens from things like long term use of birth control pills, having babies and breastfeeding, and being on certain medications for endometriosis or breast cancer suppression. In the past, the only treatment options were vaginal estrogen cream, which can be messy or contraindicated in certain situations, or surgery, which is invasive and not without risk.
Most women complain of persistent itching or a dry feeling that some describe as “feeling like sandpaper down there”, pain or bleeding with intercourse, and often leakage of urine with activities such as coughing or lifting.
Luckily, we women no longer have to suffer in silence because now there is a quick, effective, long-term treatment called the Diva vaginal laser. We’re so excited to have the Diva laser for you at PrivaMD | Physicians.
What does the Therapy Consist of?
The therapy consists of three 5-minute treatment sessions, 4 weeks apart. It’s performed right in the office and there is no down-time afterward. The Diva laser is the most convenient, pain-free way to relieve your vaginal discomfort, dryness, laxity, and urinary leakage without surgery.
