What causes Atrophic Vaginitis

Declining oestrogen levels affect vaginal flora allowing bacteria to proliferate, causing a vaginal discharge. The menopause reduces levels of oestrogen and these lower oestrogen levels are related to an increase in urinary tract infections as the walls of the urethra and bladder become thinner.
