Vaginal atrophy is a condition that affects your vaginal walls. It can present symptoms like vaginal dryness, inflammation, thinning vaginal walls and painful sex.

If you notice changes in your vaginal function, the providers at Integrative Family Medicine can measure your hormone levels to help determine the cause of your symptoms. A customized treatment plan is created to help you achieve restored vaginal function without disrupting your body’s other systems.
