Atrophy of vulvo-vaginal mucosa
Atrophy of the vaginal mucosa can be caused by a decrease in estrogen levels secondary to the taking of certain drugs or menopause. The mucosa becomes less vascularized which causes dyspareunia (pain during intercourse) and can be a source of genital infections. Then, the gynecologist introduces a laser into the vagina that stimulates the synthesis of a new layer of collagen making the mucosa thicker and more tonic.
The vaginal gap
