What is vaginal atrophy, specifically?

It is a common but treatable condition where the vaginal walls starts to thin out. The symptoms include discharge, burning, itching, difficulty peeing and pain during sex and are caused by a decrease in the production of the female sex hormone Oestrogen according to Dr Louise Mazanti, a London based sex therapist. It is also understood that while it can affect anyone, women going through the menopause are more likely to experience it according to a report, because of the decreased amount of Oestrogen their bodies are producing. More so, women who have been treated for cancer (breast cancer in particular) may also be affected.
