65% of women will experience vaginal dryness, loss of elasticity and painful sex during menopause. Low estrogen levels make the tissues in the vagina thin and change vaginal acidity and protective flora, which can lead to inflammation and infections.

Vaginal discomfort, infections and painful sex are not just part of menopause. Intimate training self care can help manage and mitigate changes in vaginal health, so that you are at your prime in menopause and beyond.

Sexual wellness in menopause

Estrogen depletion and vaginal atrophy: In menopause, painful intercourse is associated with dramatic decreases in circulating estrogen concentrations cause physiologic changes.

The vaginal tissues become dry, less elastic, more fragile and more susceptible to tearing, bleeding or pain during sex or during a pelvic exam.

For many women, vaginal atrophy also causes tightening of the vaginal opening making intercourse painful.

Vaginal pH imbalance and Infections: The loss of estrogen causes the vagina to become less acidic, which makes the body more susceptible to urinary tract infections (UTI's) and overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria (BV) and yeast infections. Vaginal infections cause irritation, dryness and burning.

After menopause, falling estrogen levels also cause the vaginal microbiome to shift away from a lactobacillus-dominant ecosystem. The loss of protective lactobacilli is the main cause of the increased rate of UTI's.

Vaginal and pelvic muscle tonus: Low estrogen levels impact the strength and tonus of vaginal and pelvic muscles that support and keep the uterus, bowel, bladder or top of the vagina in place. Up to 40% of women will experience pelvic organ prolapse (POP), due to loss of support from the connective tissue, in menopause.

Take five minutes for yourself

The vagina is an elastic, muscular canal with a soft, flexible lining that provides lubrication and sensation. With the drop in estrogen the vagina gradually loses tonus, elasticity, lubrication along with protective microbiome that supports vaginal health.

Intimate training takes 3-5 minutes daily, or as needed, in bed or in the shower, to manage and mitigate vaginal changes that can cause discomfort, infections and painful sex in menopause.

Regular intimate training during menopause and beyond, even if you are taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT), can maintain your vaginal health and sexual wellness in menopause.
