How Vaginal Rejuvenation Can Restore Your Sex Life

There are many events that can cause physical changes in your vagina, from childbirth to menopause. We also understand that when these changes interfere with your sex life, they affect your overall wellness.

To help restore your sex life, Dr. Gary Willen and the team here at Tahoe Women’s Care offer a range of products and services that can help rejuvenate your vaginal health

Let’s take a look at both the problem and the solutions.

Decline in vaginal health

There are many reasons why you may experience problems with your vaginal health, including menopause, childbirth, and certain medical issues.


One of the primary drivers of poor vaginal health is the passage through menopause. When your ovaries shut down, you lose the primary producer of estrogen. Not only do these hormones control ovulation, they also play a significant role in the health of your vaginal tissue, keeping it strong and lubricated to encourage intercourse and facilitate childbirth.

When these hormone levels drop off, you can develop vaginal dryness and thinning vaginal tissue. In fact, more than half of post-menopausal women report vaginal dryness.


Following childbirth, you may experience vaginal laxity. While this problem can resolve on its own, some women are left with permanently looser vaginal tissue.

Medical issues

If you’ve had your ovaries removed, which induces menopause, you may experience changes in your vaginal health, such as vaginal dryness and thinning tissue. 

The dryness of Sjögren's syndrome, an autoimmune condition, may affect not only the mouth and eyes, but also the vagina. Sometimes cancer treatment, such as hormone therapy or chemotherapy, can cause vaginal dryness, too.

Whatever the problem behind the decline in your vaginal health, the good news is that we offer effective solutions.

Rejuvenating your vaginal health

To improve your vaginal health and restore your sex life, we offer several treatment options, including:

We’re particularly pleased with the results of the last item on this list. Our MonaLisa Touch system is an innovative and noninvasive technology that delivers fractionated CO2 energy into your vaginal tissues. As your tissue absorbs the energy, it results in the production or more collagen — the protein that’s responsible for tone and elasticity.

As we mentioned, the treatments are noninvasive and take us only five minutes to administer. We typically recommend a series of treatments for best results, which we space apart to allow time for your body to respond.

After each MonaLisa Touch treatment, you should refrain from sexual intercourse for 2-3 days. As you progress, however, your patience is rewarded as your vaginal tissue regains its health, allowing you to enjoy an active sex life again.

To learn more about your options for vaginal rejuvenation, contact our office in Carson City, Nevada, to schedule an appointment.
