When estrogen levels decline many gynecological changes occur. Thinning and weakening of vaginal tissue are due to decreased collagen production. Vaginal dryness develops due to the lack of production of epithelial cells that naturally produce moisture. There are many reasons for the estrogen level to decline. The most common is a natural menopause when our ovaries stop producing estrogen. The other is a surgical menopause when the ovaries have been removed. Another very common reason is due to chemotherapy and radiation after cancer. While supplementing with oral or topical estrogen can help with these changes many women cannot or wish not to supplement with estrogen. For example, a woman who has had breast cancer would be advised against taking estrogen.
Painful intercourse strains relationships and places unnecessary emotional strain on a woman.
