An atrophic uterus, also known as uterine atrophy, refers to a condition where the uterus undergoes a decrease in size and function. This condition can lead to various reproductive health issues, including infertility and menstrual irregularities. At Aashakiran IVF, under the guidance of Dr. Asmita Mahla, we specialize in diagnosing and treating atrophic uterus, offering comprehensive care across our centers in Kharar, Amritsar, Ludhiana, and Bathinda. This article aims to provide insights into the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for atrophic uterus.

Understanding Atrophic Uterus

Atrophic uterus typically occurs as a result of hormonal changes, particularly during menopause or after undergoing certain medical treatments such as radiation therapy or hormonal therapy. The decrease in estrogen levels can lead to thinning of the uterine lining and a reduction in uterine size.

Causes of Atrophic Uterus

The primary cause of atrophic uterus is the decline in estrogen levels, which can occur due to:

  • Natural menopause
  • Surgical menopause (removal of ovaries)
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormonal medications

Symptoms of Atrophic Uterus

Symptoms of atrophic uterus may include:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse
  • Decreased vaginal lubrication
  • Menstrual irregularities (such as light or absent periods)
  • Urinary symptoms (such as frequent urination or urinary incontinence)

Diagnosis and Evaluation

Diagnosing atrophic uterus typically involves a combination of medical history review, pelvic examination, imaging studies such as ultrasound, and hormonal tests to assess estrogen levels. Endometrial biopsy or hysteroscopy may be performed to evaluate the uterine lining and rule out other underlying conditions.

Treatment Options

Treatment for atrophic uterus aims to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. This may include hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to replenish estrogen levels and promote the thickening of the uterine lining. Vaginal moisturizers or lubricants may also be recommended to relieve vaginal dryness and discomfort.
