Life Effects of Vaginal Laxity
Vaginal laxity is the leading reason women over 50 report decreased sexual satisfaction which is due to vaginal wall looseness and lack of friction. For women who have recently given birth, reports of a newly “loose vagina” lead the list of complaints outrunning those of weight gain and stretch marks. This common problem affecting so many women warrants as much attention as any other medical or health concern. Dr. Russo supports many leading innovations addressing vaginal laxity and encourages women of all ages to seek therapy to explore their options and improve overall vaginal health, appearance and function.
What Causes Vaginal Laxity?
There are many causes of vaginal laxity that are as individual as the woman herself. Menopause is the most common cause in women over age 45, which roots from the decreased levels of estrogen and collagen production to the vaginal tissue. Among other causes are multiple vaginal childbirths, poor vaginal repairs from deliveries, certain medical conditions, and history of prolonged sexual activity, history of multiple partners, trauma and genetic factors.
One of the main causes of vaginal laxity is a natural drop in estrogen that takes place as we age. To this end, HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) is frequently prescribed. New laser therapies are now being used to treat these problems in the volvoo and vaginal area, which is a safe and non-invasive way, and leads to regeneration of out-patient vaginal mucus.
