Just like every other part of the body, the vagina changes with age, but additional decline in vaginal health may be caused by two major events in a woman’s life.
Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue. The vagina can mostly be repaired by the body’s own healing response. With many women, however, the tissue may not return to the same state as before childbirth. This stretching damages the vaginal walls, perineum and surrounding tissue, which often leads to diminished vaginal health.
Menopause and other events such as a hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or activities like breast-feeding, may lead to reduced estrogen production by the ovaries and often leads to thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls. For many women this may decrease healthy vaginal function.
