Vulvo-vaginal atrophy, also called atrophic vaginitis, is a chronic, progressive condition that results from the decrease in oestrogen levels in the vagina that commonly occurs after the menopause.
Despite the impact on quality of life and relationships, the fact that 62% of women complain of moderate or severe symptoms and 55% had the symptoms for 3 or more years, vulvar and vaginal atrophy remain an underreported, underdiagnosed and therefore also an undertreated condition for a number of different reasons.
