Possible Relief for Postmenopausal Vaginal Atrophy

Author: No Comments Share:
In Elena Perez’s article on MRIs conducted while women masturbate, she explained that the peptide hormone that increases pain thresholds and suppresses fear, oxytocin, is released in women during sex and orgasms.

A small study using topical oxytocin gel on women suffering from postmenopausal vaginal atrophy (symptoms of vaginal atrophy include vaginal dryness, pain, itching, discomfort and bleeding during intercourse) had remarkably positive results. Larger studies are in progress to establish the possibility of using oxytocin as a clinical treatment for vaginal atrophy.
