Dr Ahmed Al-Qahtani will discuss the symptoms that many women experience related to vaginal dryness. A silent condition that many women feel embarrassed to share with their partners, friends and even doctors.
Extremely common during pre-menopause and post-menopausal years, vaginal dryness is a hallmark sign of vaginal atrophy - the inflammation and thinning of the vaginal wall due to a decline in estrogen. Along with vaginal dryness, many women also experience itching and stinging around the vaginal opening and in the lower third of the vagina.
Dr Al-Qahtani will discuss the use of Growth Factors to rejuvenate vaginal function, eliminating any uncomfortable feelings.
