Q: What different treatment options might my doctor or nurse practitioner suggest?
A. There are many different ways to treat The Big Ow. Your doctor or nurse practitioner may prescribe a mess-free treatment option, like a tablet or ring that is inserted into the vagina. Alternatively, he or she may give you a vaginal cream for your symptoms.
What your doctor will do
The Big Ow shouldn’t be a big secret, ladies. We’re busy women with a lot on our plates. There’s no need to take on vaginal discomfort by ourselves too. Your doctor and nurse can help you get relief from vaginal atrophy. There are a few ways you can prepare for your appointment, but one thing that may help you feel more at ease is knowing what to expect…
When you make an appointment to talk about vaginal atrophy, your family doctor or nurse practitioner may refer you to a gynaecologist, if you don’t already have one. Vaginal atrophy is nothing new to doctors – specialists and primary care physicians alike – so discussing your symptoms with anyone involved in your care is always a good decision.
After learning more about your condition with a discussion and an exam, your doctor and nurse will be able to help you decide what to do to start feeling better.
