Restoring Intimate Wellness With Votiva

Understanding Menopause and Painful Intercourse

If you're in the midst of menopause you'll be well aware that your body undergoes what feels like endless hormonal changes, particularly a decline in oestrogen levels. Oestrogen plays a crucial role in maintaining the elasticity, thickness and lubrication of vaginal tissues. As levels decrease, the vaginal walls become thin, dry and less elastic, leading to a condition known as vaginal atrophy. This can result in itchiness, burning sensations and pain, especially during sexual intercourse.

The discomfort experienced during sex can have a profound impact on a woman's quality of life, affecting not only physical wellbeing but also emotional and psychological health. Many feel embarrassed or ashamed to discuss these symptoms, leading to a silent struggle with intimate relationships and self-esteem.

It's a handheld device that delivers gentle radiofrequency waves through the walls of the vaginal canal, activating the production of new collagen and elastin. This, in turn, results in vaginal, labia and vulvar tightening. It also stimulates the blood supply and restores normal secretory gland activity to help relieve dryness.

Unlike traditional treatments that may involve invasive surgical procedures or hormonal therapies, Votiva Forma V offers a totally pain-free approach - using controlled heat in targeted areas, it triggers a natural healing response within the body. This stimulation promotes the production of new collagen fibres, resulting in improved vaginal tone and lubrication.

Collagen is a key protein responsible for maintaining the structure, firmness and elasticity of our skin and connective tissues. By enhancing collagen levels in the vaginal area, we can restore moisture, resilience and suppleness, helping to ease discomfort and improve sexual function.

As society continues to break down taboos surrounding women's health and sexuality, innovative solutions like Votiva Forma V play a pivotal role in promoting holistic wellbeing and empowerment. By addressing the unique needs of women experiencing menopause-related vaginal atrophy, it's ideal for those seeking relief from painful intercourse and reclaiming their vitality.

Beyond Hormone Replacement Therapy

For many women, HRT is the gold standard for managing menopausal symptoms. However, it is not suitable for everyone, particularly those with a history of breast cancer or other oestrogen-sensitive conditions. Additionally, some women may choose to avoid HRT altogether due to concerns about potential side effects or long-term risks.

Votiva Forma V offers a safe and effective alternative for women who cannot or prefer not to pursue HRT by addressing the root cause of vaginal atrophy without introducing exogenous hormones into the body. This makes it a valuable option for breast cancer survivors and other women with contraindications to hormonal therapies.

The Road to Renewal

The efficacy of Votiva Forma V has been validated through both clinical studies and patient experiences, with many saying they noticed improvements in vaginal lubrication, tissue elasticity and overall sexual satisfaction. Many women also describe feeling more comfortable, confident and connected in their intimate relationships following treatment.

As one of my clients put it: “I guess the big question is, did I notice any improvements during sex? Well, yes! Even my partner made the comment that I was feeling tighter and I felt that there was an improvement in sensitivity”

So what results can you expect? There is usually some degree of tightening and improvement in symptoms after the first treatment. This continues to improve over the following weeks; however, depending on your individual concerns, we recommend three treatments, a month apart, for the best results. The great news is there's no downtime, and you can return to normal activities immediately (so no one needs to know!).


Forma V can be used for a range of issues including: Vaginal and vulval laxity, dryness, painful intercourse, urinary stress incontinence, tissue and muscle changes following childbirth, menopause and ageing, and to improve sexual pleasure and arousal. We are one of the few clinics in the UK to offer this doctor-led treatment, please get in touch for a confidential chat.
