Good Afternoon I Am A 58 Year Old Women Who
Vaginal atrophy possible.
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
I think this can be related to menopause.
I think you went through menopause around 50 and being for 7-8 years on menopause and hormonal deficiency may have caused vaginal atrophy.
Also not having a sexual partner may contribute to vaginal atrophy.
Burning and itching may be symptoms of atrophy.
The piece of left ovary may not be enough to fullfil the hormonal needs.
Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further
Insufficient evidence of suspecting cancer.
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
There are not sufficient symptoms to suspect cancer.
You may use vaginal lubrication gel, oral hormone therapy with estrogen to make it better.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Can you specify it better?
I want you to specify something.
You are saying that you have burning sensation in vagina ,is it outside or inside it?
If it is outside then how does the skin looks?
I thought of vaginal atrophy referring to burning sensation and discomfort inside vaginal walls.
Also taking count of your history of hysterectomy and only one ovary left it could be estrogen insufficiency.
Using lubrication gel may relieve discomfort.
If the burning is on outside and the redness too it can be related to fungal infection.
In this case antifungal ointment may be used such clotrimazole ointment.
Also washing with gentle soap and drying well is needed.
