Vaginal Atrophy is a common side effect of breast cancer treatment. Our infographic highlights the symptoms of vaginal atrophy and the treatment options available. 

A woman’s fight to beat breast cancer is filled with physical and psychological challenges. Even after the fight is won, side effects of breast cancer treatments can still affect a survivor’s quality of life.

One such issue is vaginal atrophy. This cruel condition can severely affect libido, self esteem, and the relationship with a spouse or partner.

In a report commissioned by the Breast Cancer Network Australia, up to 89% of women surveyed reported significant changes in their sexual wellbeing after going through breast cancer treatment. However, it’s estimated that less than 20% of breast cancer survivors seek medical help for urogenital issues.

In this article we’ll explain the connection between breast cancer, oestrogen, and vaginal atrophy. Then we’ll explore treatment options that relieve suffering and improve quality of life.

We live in a fast paced world and as women tend to look after those important to us ahead of ourselves. Women’s Health Week, which ran from 4-8 September, is designed to remind us how important it is for women to put themselves first. We are no good to anybody else if we are not healthy.

Northside Gynaecology recognises the importance of caring for women holistically ensuring changing needs are addressed and overall quality of life is achieved, improved and maintained. With that in mind, access to the latest therapies, technology and a support network to deal with and manage your female concerns is just a phone call away.

Women of Brisbane, it is time to look after number one!
