Vaginal symptoms in postmenopausal women: self-reported severity, natural history, and risk factors
Blossom, whatever you want to call it, this sensitive area of your body takes a darn good battering from the trials and tribulations of cycling. This relatively small and intimate region is responsible for so many important functions; expelling bodily waste, facilitating intercourse, having orgasms and, in some cases, giving birth.

From entrepreneurs to body positivity gurus to mental health advocates often all at once! Meet Kaylynn. I work as a self-relationship and body-connection educator in Sacramento, Ca. Other than that I am a wife, dog mom and absolutely love brunch and rooftop hangs with friends more than anything in the world. Also, to say I am obsessed with houseplants would be an understatement.

I’m single. I live in LA. I’m on dating apps. And unsurprisingly, I get more unsolicited dick pics than you could ever imagine. Out of nowhere, the straight-guy selfie takes over my phone screen like virtual unwanted morning wood. I wondered, “What would guys do if I turned the tables and sent them an unexpected vagina pic? First, I had to find the perfect vagina pic because the only people who see mine are men I’m intimate with and, duh, my gynecologist.
I searched the Interwebs, and after extensive research I have to give props to straight guys and lesbians — vaginas are like fingerprints except you really don’t know what you’re going to get. After a lot of “Whoa! Next, I loaded the dating app Bumble, which lets you send photos to your matches within the app rather than via text. If I was going to send vaje pics willy-nilly, I didn’t want to have too many weirdoes knowing my phone number.
I made my search parameters wide — ages I didn’t want to give an older guy a heart attack and up to 50 miles in the LA area. I swiped right on every man that popped up and matched with about

This study aimed to examine factors other than estrogen deficiency influencing the development and persistence of vaginal dryness, itching, and painful sexual intercourse after menopause. We analyzed data from a 2-year, population-based cohort of 1, postmenopausal women aged 55 to 75 years.

Jump to navigation. We live in Houston, where the weather often seems brutally hot year-round. Nobody particularly loves feeling sweaty and sticky all over, but the bottom line is that heat, or any change in season, will not affect gynecological health or cause changes to the vagina. The vagina is an internal organ of the female body, and, therefore, its temperature is regulated just like the internal temperature of the body.
Be careful when it comes to grooming. During the summer, women tend to frequently remove pubic hair. Depending on your method for removal, grooming can lead to ingrown hairs, uncomfortable razor burn and infections of the hair follicles, or folliculitis. Grooming can also lead to skin injuries including burns from hot wax, cuts from shaving and even micro-abrasions that are naked to the eye, all of which can become infected and increase the risk of sexually transmitted infections STIs including human papilloma virus HPV and molluscum contagiosum.
