Women age differently than men.
As estrogen levels decline, so does natural lubrication. Many women experience this prior to or during menopause, but it can impact a woman at any age.
Diminished estrogen can lead to external and internal vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy, resulting in undernourished, under-hydrated, aged skin that leads many women to experience daily personal discomfort, diminished interest in intimacy and a lack of sexual spontaneity.
The skin around the vaginal area is very sensitive, so it's important to use vaginal care products that don't contain harsh ingredients. Skin care designed for the face or body can cause irritation and discomfort when applied to the delicate skin of the vaginal area.
Dr. Ronald Blatt has been an expert in the field of women's health for over 30 years. Board-certified gynecologist, expert surgeon and compassionate physician, Dr. Blatt's driving imperative is to treat matters of vaginal health and intimate skin care with knowledge, awareness and respect.
His product line, PrivateRx, provides hydrating vaginal cream products that safely and effectively hydrate the dry, flaky, estrogen-deprived skin often associated with menopause.
Dr. Blatt joins host Lisa Davis to discuss why it's important to pay attention to your vaginal health, as well as important considerations for doing so.
