It’s a reality you never thought that you would have to consider, but could your vagina actually be depressed? Scientists say that this may be a very real concern!

Ladies, if you’ve been feeling a little neglected as of late, especially in the area of your sex life, you need to pay attention! Recent data shows that not only does a lack of sex have a mental impact on our lives, negatively impacting our self-worth and confidence, increasing our stress levels and possibly even leading to depression, but it may actually have an impact on the overall physical health of your vagina. I don’t know about you, but that’s one area of my health I don’t want to be gambling with!

While many associate our current generation with a lack of responsibility, random hookups and a desire to do nothing but have ‘fun’, this has created a misconception regarding the amount of sex that Americans are having today. In fact, studies show that millennials are actually having less sex than the generations that came before them, with those born in the 1990s more than twice as likely to be sexually inactivethroughout their early 20s than the Gen Xers that came before them. Many will argue that this is a positive shift, as it helps to reduce the spread of STDs and reduce the risk of unwanted pregnancies, researchers are now warning there may be another important aspect for consideration.

The condition is called ‘vulvodynia’, which is associated with feelings of burning, stinging, throbbing, soreness, itching or painful intercourse. These symptoms are so similar to that of many sexually transmitted infections and diseases that it is often misdiagnosed. In fact, it’s misdiagnosed so often that it’s impossible to accurately estimate the number of women currently living with the condition. Experts say that in the United States there may be anywhere from 200,000 to 6 million women affected, but with only 60% estimated to receive a proper diagnosis, there is really no way to know.

Currently, there is no known cure for the condition, but those who take a low-dose antidepressant report relief, which is why it is often referred to as depression of the vagina. “It’s not clear why antidepressants work for some women with this condition, but they do,”explained Sherry Ross, M. D., ob-gyn and women’s health expert from Santa Monica, California.

The key to optimal vaginal health, according to the experts? Regular sex! Maria Sophocles, M. D., ob-gyn, and medical director or Women’s Healthcare of Princeton in New Jersey advised that “Sex promotes healthy collagen and elastin cells and maintains the flow of blood to the area.”

If the solution to better health is so simple, why are we not talking about it more? Topics surrounding women’s sexual health are still largely taboo in our society. This is further perpetuated by the myths that women want less sex, or that the female orgasm is nearly impossible. The only way to break through these barriers is to be open and honest while ensuring that we are sharing the true fact. The women in your life need your help to avoid this uncomfortable condition! Spread the word, talk about the symptoms and promote the fact that women love sex too – and that’s a great thing!
