The New Name for Vulvovaginal Atrophy is Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause

Menopause comes with so many symptoms women need to deal with. From physical to psychological ones, most of the symptoms aren’t visible, but some of them are definitely embarrassing to talk about. This is the case of vulvovaginal atrophy and of atrophic vaginitis, a condition involving both the genitals and urinary tract (see all signs and symptoms below). Mentioning “vulva” and “vagina”, and also including the term “atrophy”, which generally has negative connotations, these names are not comfortably used in general discussions and tend to be excluded.

Use It or Lose It
