The prevalence of vulvar and vaginal atrophy is commonly reported in postmenopausal women. Decreased estrogen of the vulvovaginal tissue, which results in inflammation of the vagina, is described as vulvar vaginal atrophy or urogenital atrophy. The vaginal inflammation also causes thinning and shrinking of the tissues. Vaginal dryness, irritation, dyspareunia, and urgency in urination are some of the common symptoms of vulvar and vaginal atrophy. It is a chronic condition leading to distressing symptoms and gradually worsens if not treated. Suitable assistance and medical guidance are available for the treatment of VVA.
