Childbirth, menopause, certain skin conditions (vulvar dystrophy, lichen sclerosis), cancer treatment, and aging can cause thinning of the vagina (vaginal atrophy).
Vaginal atrophy can lead to vaginal dryness, painful sex (dyspareunia), vaginal irritation, vaginal burning, and skin discoloration of the vulva with age spots or brown spots. Other symptoms such as urinary incontinence have been successfully treated with laser therapy.

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled growth on the inside or outer surface of one of a woman’s ovaries. Many women develop ovarian cysts. The majority of these growths are harmless, cause only very minor discomfort or no ovarian cyst symptoms at all, and disappear without treatment in just a few months. However, some cysts can cause severe symptoms and require urgent treatment.
Common Symptoms of Ovarian Cysts
Most ovarian cysts do not cause any symptoms, and often these cysts disappear without treatment. However, larger ovarian cysts can cause symptoms including:
Pelvic Pain: Sharp or dull ache in the lower abdominal area on the side of the body where the cyst is located.
Abdominal Discomfort: Sensation of heaviness or fullness in the abdomen.
Bloating: A bloated sensation.
Severe Symptoms Need Urgent Medical Attention
Sudden severe pelvic or abdominal pain.
Pain and vomiting or fever.
Signs of shock, such as cold, damp skin, rapid breathing, weakness, light-headedness.
