If you want to stay away from senile vaginitis, women need to understand these 4 disease “marks” as soon as possible

When it comes to senile vaginitis, I believe that many women are familiar with it, especially postmenopausal women, who will almost always deal with this disease. However, many women don’t understand why they are related to this disease after menopause. Is it because they don’t pay attention to private hygiene?

In fact, this is not the case. The real cause of senile vaginitis is related to the secretion of estrogen, because the microenvironment of the vagina, Lubrication needs to be regulated by estrogen.

But after menopause, the function of the ovaries will also be lost, and the ovaries no longer have the functions of secreting hormones and ovulating. Therefore, this time will lead to low estrogen levels in the body, and then senile vaginitis will appear. So, what are the typical clinical manifestations of this disease? In order to better prevent and treat this disease, these 4 points need to be understood clearly.

1. Vaginal dryness

As mentioned earlier, senile vaginitis has a great relationship with the level of estrogen secretion. This is because estrogen has the effect of lubricating the vagina, so once the estrogen is gone, the patient will obviously feel discomfort in the private parts, mainly vaginal dryness. Not only that, but patients can also clearly feel a burning sensation in their private parts, as if they have been stimulated by chili noodles.

In fact, these are the most typical clinical manifestations of senile vaginitis. If these symptoms occur frequently after menopause, the first thing to consider is Senile vaginitis.

2. Sex pain

When husband and wife are engaged in “marital life”, the private parts should play a lubricating function, so as to ensure the normal progress of “marital life”. So, what is responsible for the efficacy of this lubrication? In addition to the vagina itself, estrogen also plays a role.

So, for postmenopausal women, even Both husband and wife have made sufficient preparations before engaging in “marital life”, but they still feel unsatisfied with the effect of “intimacy”, and even most women will show discomfort in their private parts, especially dryness and burning sensation, etc. It is a typical manifestation of dyspareunia.

3. Genital itching

In addition to bacterial infections that can cause genital itching, postmenopausal women can also experience genital itching. However, the vulvar itching at this time is not caused by the disorder of the vaginal flora, but because of changes in the microenvironment of the vagina. Insufficient secretion of estrogen leads to vaginal dryness, which in turn reduces vaginal secretions, and finally occurs Vulvar itching, irritation, etc. It is also true that some women will also show symptoms of infection, such as a peculiar smell in the private parts, abnormal characteristics of leucorrhea secretions, etc.

4. Accompanying symptoms


The typical symptoms of senile vaginitis are vulvar itching and burning pain. However, in addition to these symptoms, patients also have some accompanying symptoms, such as accompanying symptoms of the urinary system. Patients may show problems such as frequent urination, urgency, and painful urination. These are also caused by mechanical stimulation of the vagina after estrogen secretion is reduced.
