Customer Question

I believe I have Vaginal Atrophy or at least that is what I am being treated for now with Vaginal insertions of estrogen. I am also experiencing some bladder discomfort - frequency and pressure and as well sometimes have a dull stabbing pain in my right pelvic are and sometimes near my waist line. Are these symptoms associated with Vaginal Atrophy. Thank You

Hello and welcome I'm Dr Chip

No, this isn't related to vaginal atrophy Lorraine

This sounds like a bladder infection but with the waistline pain it could also be a kidney stone

I suggest you see your doctor for a urinalysis and antibiotics if warranted
