In order to understand the differences, we must first understand each condition.
Vaginal atrophy is a condition that affects 4 out of 10 women after menopause.
As women age and estrogen levels decrease, the tissue of the vagina becomes very dry, losing elasticity and vitality. Vaginal atrophy may develop from premature menopause, hysterectomy, breast cancer treatment or natural menopause. Patients with this condition may experience burning, itching, tightness, and sexual discomfort.

Nearly everyone will experience some type of stress in their lives. Stress can be caused by a variety of factors including, work, money, health, family and a laundry list of other items that are often unavoidable.

Endometriosis is a much more prevalent issue than many people might think. In fact, fewer than 1/3 of women know what endometriosis is, despite it affecting approximately one out of every ten women in the United States.
Endometriosis occurs when uterine tissue begins to grow outside of the uterus. Because this tissue responds to a woman’s menstrual cycle, symptoms can be confused with period pain. Since the tissue has no way of leaving the body, lesions, scar tissue and inflammation can occur. All of these symptoms could potentially lead to infertility.
