Hi @jessica & @CloakOfAsh, sorry for the delayed post, I’ve been busy caring for people with the flu! Vaginal atrophy is a condition, however you’re right @MintMilano that it’s incorrectly portrayed in this news article. While hormones do play a role other rare skin conditions (lichen sclerosis, for example) may cause symptoms. The good news is that it may be treated. The key is to visit a doctor early if any signs of vaginal burning, dryness or itch & any pain or bleeding with sex occur.
