Women to Women is an OBGYN medical office in Hollywood that is dedicated to the reproductive, and overall, health of the women in our care.

We see women and treat them for medical issues from the onset of menstruation until long after the last period and all the accompanying issues that menopause and aging bring to a woman’s life. Indeed menopause can bring symptoms that can be life-changing to women and their sex life. But women are no longer powerless in the face of menopause-related vaginal changes that can reduce the quality of life of a woman.

Fight back against the effects of aging with the Mona Lisa Touch therapy for optimal vaginal health. You don’t have to suffer from vaginal atrophy, dryness, and incontinence from atrophic vaginitis. Vaginal laser therapy can alleviate the symptoms of vaginal atrophy and give you back parts of your life you may have thought were gone forever. This non-surgical treatment is perfect for menopausal women, women treated for breast cancer, and women who have undergone an induced menopause.


Women know that estrogen is the main female hormone and that it performs many roles in what we think of as female characteristics. Progesterone is also a hormone that is produced in the bodies of women.  In perimenopause, these hormones fluctuate and cause symptoms such as irregular periods, mood swing and a drop in libido.

Menopause is said to have been entered when a woman has not had a period in 12 months. When this landmark has been reached, other symptoms will also likely be experienced by most women. According to the Mayo Clinic, the common symptoms of menopause are the following:

Atrophic Vaginitis

One issue that overlaps many of these symptoms but has its own diagnosis is that of vaginal atrophy. Vagina atrophy is, again from the May Clinic, “thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to your body having less estrogen. Vaginal atrophy can cause painful intercourse and some urinary symptoms that can be upsetting.  This is also known as genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM).” Urinary symptoms can include frequency strong urges to urinate, burning with urination and an increase in urinary tract infections.

Mona Lisa Touch Treats Atrophic Vaginitis

There is a new treatment for atrophic vaginitis that promises great leaps in improvements in the symptoms, the Mona Lisa Touch. This Italian-built laser was approved by the FDA in 2014 and is now offered by Women to Women.

When the Mona Lisa Touch is combined with other forms of therapy, such as bioidentical hormones, you can also experience a lessening of brain fog, aches, and pains, and experience increased energy and sex drive.
