Atrophic vaginitis is prevalent among postmenopausal women; however, it is often underreported and underdiagnosed.

Although systemic therapy can be of benefit in the treatment of atrophic vaginitis, vaginal estrogen preparations are often recommended. Postmenopausal women may find relief of symptoms of atrophic vaginitis with vaginal estrogen therapies.
