Vaginal Dryness Treatment, Personalised to You

Vaginal dryness (sometimes known as Vaginal atrophy) can be common if you’re experiencing the menopause, going through postpartum pregnancy, undergoing cancer treatments, or it can even occur as a side effect of contraceptives.

Vaginal dryness can seem like an embarrassing or even taboo subject, but the truth is, 34% of women between the ages of 57-69 experience this.

While it can be comforting to know that you’re not alone, it doesn’t make it any less frustrating and it can have a detrimental impact on your daily life and relationships, however, with the help of expert gynaecology services, symptoms can be relieved and you can feel more and more comfortable each day.

I was extremely anxious when going for my initial consultation but Mr Taylor immediately put me at ease. I am no longer in any discomfort and it has made such a difference to my confidence. I am so grateful to Mr Taylor for this positive change in my life.

Private Treatment for Vaginal Atrophy and Other Conditions

Most cases of Vaginal Dryness are due to low levels of oestrogen in the body. You may have also tried vaginal moisturisers or lubricants before to help however this has only offered a temporary fix.

We understand how frustrating it can be when a treatment doesn’t deliver the results that you hoped for, but don’t lose hope. Just because you’ve tried topical and oral treatments doesn’t mean that you can’t find a long-lasting, effective treatment.

With over 30 years of experience in women’s health, Mr Alexander Taylor offers specialist gynaecology services for women in several private clinics across Bournemouth, offering a range of minimally invasive treatment options. Treatment offered includes hormone replacement therapies and the innovative Mona Lisa Touch laser therapy; a non-surgical treatment used to relieve symptoms such as:

  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Pain/loss of sensation during intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Changes to sleeping pattern
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Mood changes
  • Hot flashes
  • Painful sex

Not every treatment may be right for every individual’s needs, so we will create a personalised treatment plan based on a thorough consultation to provide guidance on the best course of action. To discuss how we can help you, get in touch below.
