It is possible to have vaginal atrophy and not experience symptoms but many women with moderate to severe cases usually experience them.
As a matter of fact, an estimated 10% to 40% of postmenopausal women have symptoms related to vaginal atrophy. Symptoms can include vaginal dryness, burning, discharge, burning with urination, urgency with urination, more urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence, light bleeding after intercourse and/or discomfort with intercourse.Your vagina may feel smaller, shorter or narrower.Unlike other menopause symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal atrophy problems usually don’t subside over time.
