Here at Gynecology Associates of Gwinnett, we understand that there are some things that many women are just not comfortable discussing. Vaginal atrophy or other vaginal health concerns are high on that list. Common issues like vaginal dryness, vaginal itching, and painful or unsatisfying sex, as well as stress urinary incontinence can complicate a woman’s vaginal health and lead her to seek a solution. In many cases, Femtouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation can be that solution. FemTouch™ can provide a trusted, non-surgical path to better reproductive health for women of all ages. Below, our board-certified gynecologists have taken some time to answer common questions about FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation and how it can help women.
Question #1: Can exercises like lifting weights or certain leg stretches cause vaginal looseness?
It is unlikely that these activities, or other kinds of physical exercise, would be responsible for vaginal laxity (looseness). In most cases, the vagina can become loose over time as a result of natural aging, menopause, pregnancy and vaginal delivery, certain medical conditions, or a history of prolonged sexual activity. Regardless of the cause of vaginal laxity, FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation treatments should be able to improve the tightness of the vagina.
Question #2: Is it possible to have FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation treatments done if I have a bladder prolapse?
There is no reason that experiencing a prolapsed bladder, or other forms of pelvic organ prolapse, would prevent a woman from being able to safely and successfully undergo FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation treatments. However, it’s important to remember that FemTouch™ treatments will not be able to treat or improve the prolapse or the symptoms that it is causing, so women should speak with their board-certified gynecologist to gain a fuller understanding of their various treatment options.
Question #3: Can FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation treatments affect menstruation?
Undergoing FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation treatments should not have any effect on a woman’s menstrual cycle. If you have undergone FemTouch™ treatments and then experienced abnormal bleeding or late periods, your issues may potentially be caused by several factors including stress, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), birth control, and more.
Vaginal atrophy can be tough, but thankfully, FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation can provide relief for common vaginal health symptoms. Before beginning treatments, it’s important to consult with your board-certified gynecologist to determine if you are a good candidate for FemTouch™.
