Vaginal hypoplasia

Vaginal hypoplasia

Vaginal hypoplasia may be an impediment to sexual intercourse, due to the discomfort that may occur; at the same time, this modification may represent the clinical expression of a particular hormonal status or other changes already existing even if not so obvious (for example, uterine uterus, insufficiently developed uterine tube, etc.).

Vaginal hypoplasia may be an impediment to sexual intercourse, due to the discomfort that may occur; at the same time, this modification may represent the clinical expression of a particular hormonal status or other changes already existing even if not so obvious (for example, uterine uterus, insufficiently developed uterine tube, etc.).
There is an algorithm that needs to be followed in order to find answers to your infertility questions.
First of all, the diagnosis of infertility is made in case a couple fails to obtain a pregnancy after a period of at least two years of tests materialized through normal, regular, correctly coordinated heterosexual contacts regarding the ovulation period (it is the most fertile, usually located in the middle of the period between two menses).


In your case you must first investigate the cause of the occurrence of vaginal hypoplasia and the existence of the associated pathology.
It starts with establishing a starting point regarding the structural and functional status of the organs involved in the reproduction process.
This can be achieved by:
In your case it starts from a complete clinical examination and a complete history that includes your family history and health status.
Also during this first consultation will be able to perform tests such as: vaginal discharge blade, Pap test, urine summary.
In order to analyze the structural integrity of the components involved in the reproduction process, the following tests will be carried out: ultrasound has the role of visualizing the internal organs and of signaling any structural anomaly evidenced ultrasound;
Hysterosalpingography offers radiographic images regarding the uterine cavity and the degree of permeability of the uterine tubes, an occasion with which minor or partial decomposition of the fallopian tube may be performed; hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, the latter being able to have an interventional role and not only a diagnosis.
The analysis of the functionality of the reproductive system will be done as a result of tests such as: dosing of gonadal (sexual) hormones, inflammatory tests.
Your husband will also have to attend the practice with you and in addition to common exams such as clinical examination, family history and health, ultrasound examination; he will have to perform a spermogram (sperm analysis to determine its fertility).
Once a cause of the couple's infertility has been established, a decision will be made regarding the therapeutic conduct. I recommend that you carry out these investigations in a clinic specialized in couple infertility and assisted human reproduction.
