Vaginal dryness, loss of period, liver damage. Addicted to painkillers like Vicodin, Percocet. Reasons ?

Hello I am 19 years old, i m 5 3, and weight 110. I used to be addicted to painkillers like Vicodin and Percocet . After I stopped taking them, which was very hard I might add, I found out I have liver damage. I was wondering if either liver damage or pain pills can mess with vaginal health. While I was taking the pills I had vaginal dryness , loss of period, and I was getting BV ALOT. Will these problems be gone if I continue taking extremely good care of my liver?

Dear Friend
Pain killers like vicodin taken chronically for ill health or for recreational purposes always harm you , as in your case affected your liver.
Good thing is you stopped.
There is no well known relationship between pain killers and vaginal dryness.
About your liver , I can comment the best only if you share withh me your liver function tests and ultrasound abdomen.
Don't consume then again and say no to alcohol.
Good Luck
