Did you know that up to half of women experience changes to their gynecological health post- menopause?

The relief of finally completing menopause may be short-lived for women who begin to experience unpleasant changes such as painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, itching, and/or burning.

PGOMG recognizes the impulse women may have to simply “deal with” negative postmenopausal symptoms. For many, after spending much of their lifetime experiencing monthly periods and perhaps pregnancy and childbirth, unpleasant symptoms that appear after menopause are expected or seen as normal. However, it is important for women to understand that there is no need to live with painful intercourse or daily vaginal itching and burning. PGOMG offers an effective form of treatment through MonaLisa Touch.

MonaLisa Touch uses laser therapy to deliver controlled energy to vaginal tissue, which stimulates collagen production and relieves bothersome symptoms. The treatment, which takes less than five minutes per session, is pain-free and only requires one follow-up treatment. In three short visits over 18 weeks to PGOMG, you can significantly improve your quality of life with MonaLisa Touch.

Post-menopause FAQs

What does post-menopause mean?

Menopause refers to the time in a woman’s life when 12 months have passed since her last period. Post-menopause occurs after menopause, and technically continues for the rest of a woman’s life.

Are there postmenopausal symptoms outside of gynecological changes?

Yes. Some women may experience other symptoms, including weight gain, urinary incontinence, insomnia, and hot flashes that may continue after menopause.

Is there anything I can do on my own post-menopause?

Postmenopausal women can take significant steps to maintain a high quality of life. Primarily, women should be proactive in their health and well-being, including attending annual physical exams to assess health concerns like cholesterol, osteoporosis, and hypertension.
