The ISSVD Vaginitis and Microbiome Committee Subcommittee on vaginal atrophy has published a manuscript titled Clinical manifestations and evaluation of postmenopausal vulvovaginal atrophy. It is estimated that 50% of women will suffer a severe form of vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) related to menopause. Equally, young women may temporarily present this clinical problem while receiving various pharmacological or endocrine treatments or radiotherapy.
