A Guide to Common Women's Intimate Health Issues

Women's wellness

In recent years, there has been a significant rise in the number of women experiencing intimate health issues. Whether due to aging, childbirth, or hormonal changes, these challenges can profoundly impact women's quality of life. However, alongside this increased awareness and willingness to seek help, there's also been an encouraging expansion in the range of solutions available to address these concerns.

With InMode, women's health is not just a concern – it's a priority. Our innovative technologies are designed to address a wide array of women's health issues. These state-of-the-art solutions offer healthcare providers top-tier tools to aid their patients, from minimally-invasive therapies to minimally-invasive procedures that restore physical health, boost confidence, and improve the overall quality of life.

What Does Women's Intimate Health Mean?

Women's intimate health, often referred to as feminine health or women's wellness, encompasses the physical, emotional, and hormonal health related to a woman's reproductive and urogenital system. This broad term includes various aspects such as menstrual health, sexual health, fertility, menopause, and the health of the pelvic floor and vaginal tissues.

Women's intimate health can be affected by natural life processes like aging, childbirth, and hormonal fluctuations. It's essential to understand that these physical changes can also have a significant impact on a woman's emotional well-being, self-esteem, and quality of life.

Addressing women's intimate health issues requires a comprehensive and sensitive approach, one that respects the intricate nature of these concerns. With this in mind, InMode's innovative technologies offer providers and patients top-tier treatments to combat these women's health issues effectively.

Common Issues

A woman's wellness journey is often marked by natural life events like aging, childbirth, and hormonal changes. These milestones, while entirely normal, can sometimes lead to a variety of health concerns. Issues such as urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity, sexual dysfunction, and general discomfort are not uncommon. Each of these conditions represents a facet of women's intimate health, contributing to the broader picture of women's wellness.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence, an often underreported yet prevalent issue, affects approximately one in three – or up to one in two women at some point in their lives. This condition, characterised by the involuntary leakage of urine, can significantly impact a woman's quality of life, affecting both her physical comfort and emotional well-being.

Several types of urinary incontinence exist, including stress incontinence (caused by activities like coughing, laughing, or exercising), urge incontinence (an unexpected and sudden need to urinate), and mixed incontinence (a combination of both).

Fortunately, advancements in medical technology, such as those developed by InMode, have given rise to effective treatments for urinary incontinence. InMode's Votiva and EmpowerRF platforms, for example, provide non-surgical treatments that can significantly improve symptoms. Using advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology and electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), these devices can strengthen pelvic floor muscles and rejuvenate the vaginal tissue, offering a reliable solution for many women dealing with urinary incontinence.

Pelvic Floor Weakness

Pelvic floor weakness is a common yet often overlooked issue that affects many women, particularly following childbirth and during menopause. The pelvic floor, a set of muscles supporting the bladder, bowel, and uterus, can weaken over time due to factors like age, weight gain, and the strain of childbirth. This weakening can result in issues such as urinary or faecal incontinence, discomfort during intercourse, and a sensation of heaviness in the pelvic area.

Research indicates that up to one in three women will experience a pelvic floor disorder in their lifetime. Yet, despite its prevalence, this issue is frequently underdiagnosed and undertreated due to social stigma and lack of awareness.

InMode offers solutions to address pelvic floor weakness effectively. The EmpowerRF platform, for instance, features a treatment option using electrical muscle stimulation to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles non-invasively. This technology stimulates muscle contractions within the pelvic floor, promoting strength and improving symptoms related to weakness in this area. By bringing this innovative technology to clinics worldwide, InMode is providing an efficient, non-surgical solution for women suffering from pelvic floor weakness.

Vaginal Atrophy

Vaginal atrophy, also known as genitourinary syndrome of menopause, is a condition that primarily affects postmenopausal women. It involves the thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to a reduction in estrogen levels. Symptoms include vaginal dryness, discomfort during intercourse, and increased urinary tract infections.

InMode's technology, particularly the Votiva platform, offers a non-surgical solution to address vaginal atrophy. Using advanced RF technology, Votiva rejuvenates the vaginal tissues, alleviating the symptoms of this condition and restoring women's intimate wellness. It's a valuable tool in clinics worldwide for providing relief to those affected by vaginal atrophy.

Postpartum Abdominal Separation

Postpartum abdominal separation, medically known as Diastasis Recti, is a condition that affects many women after childbirth. It occurs when the two large parallel bands of muscles in the middle of the abdomen separate due to the stretching of the uterus during pregnancy. This separation can lead to a bulge in the belly, lower back pain, and weakened core strength.

InMode's Evolve platform uses a combination of RF energy and EMS to strengthen the abdominal muscles and reduce the appearance of postpartum abdominal separation. It's an innovative solution to help women achieve their desired body shape and enhance their confidence post-childbirth.

Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction in women is a broad term covering several problems, such as low sexual desire, arousal difficulties, inability to orgasm, and pain during intercourse. These issues are common, and the causes can be multifaceted, involving physical health, emotional well-being, relationship issues, and life changes such as menopause or childbirth.

Votiva specifically can help to improve sexual function by treating conditions like vaginal laxity and dryness that often contribute to sexual dysfunction. By rejuvenating the vaginal tissues, Votiva can help to enhance sexual satisfaction, restoring confidence and well-being.

Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness is a common condition that often affects women during and post-menopause, but it can occur at any age. This uncomfortable condition can result from hormonal changes, certain medications, or health conditions. Symptoms include discomfort during intercourse, itching or stinging around the vaginal area, and increased urinary frequency.

Votiva delivers therapeutic heat to the vaginal tissues, promoting their rejuvenation and natural lubrication. It's a gentle procedure that offers a significant improvement in symptoms and can restore comfort and wellness.

By partnering with clinics and healthcare providers, InMode ensures that women have access to the latest and most effective treatments for intimate health concerns. Our goal is to empower women to take control of their intimate health, offering solutions that not only treat symptoms but also boost their overall well-being.
