What is atrophic vaginitis?

A condition where the vaginal surface becomes dry and thin. This is commonly seen after menopause, due to a decrease in female hormone levels. Symptoms include itching and painful intercourse.

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge e.g. in color, smell, or quantity

  • Itching around the genital area

  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles / periods or after menopause

  • Pain around the vulva or vagina

Questions your doctor may ask to check for atrophic vaginitis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose atrophic vaginitis

  • Do you have any concerns regarding change in your vaginal discharge (color, volume or odor)?

  • Do you have any itch in and around your vagina?

  • Have you had vaginal bleeding, brown or pink colored vaginal discharge outside of your periods? Or, after the menopause?
