Addressing vaginal laxity and prolapse
At MD Wellness Solutions of Surrey, British Columbia, Dr. Shelin Tkatch and her team are committed to providing expertise and experience for women in the area who are struggling with certain health and beauty concerns. Women who have been diagnosed with vaginal laxity or vaginal prolapse may be unsure as to where they can turn for assistance. Let’s discuss these two women’s health issues and find out how they can be improved or resolved with the help of our dual-qualified doctor and her team.
What is vaginal laxity, and what causes it?
Vaginal laxity and prolapse can occur in pre-and post-menopausal women. It results from damage to the pelvic floor due to pregnancy, childbirth, and birthing-related trauma. It’s more common in women who’ve had large babies or who have needed vacuum- or forceps-assisted delivery or episiotomies, but it can also occur in women who have never been pregnant. .
What is pelvic floor vaginal prolapse, and what causes it?
Pelvic floor prolapse is a related condition of prolapse of the uterus, bladder, urethra, and rectum. Prolapse is related to pregnancy, childbirth, weight gain, aging, and genetic predisposition. Symptoms of vaginal laxity include diminished sensation during intimacy and loss of pleasure. Pelvic floor prolapse can cause loss of continence, pain with intimacy, a bulge at the opening of the vagina, and back pain.
What are non-invasive treatments for laxity and prolapse?
Non-invasive treatments for both vaginal laxity and pelvic floor prolapse are available at MD Wellness Solutions. Treatment options include Vitalia radiofrequency vaginal tightening treatments and Emsella pelvic floor strengthening. When you are evaluated by Dr. Tkatch, you can educate yourself on each treatment and determine if you are a good candidate for one or both. Additionally, there may be times when you need more than these non-invasive treatments to help you achieve the desired results, in which surgical solutions will be offered. If surgical options are necessary, Dr. Tkatch can assist with organizing your surgery.
