Prof. Sam Coulter-Smith and Dr Geraldine Connolly are both Consultant Obstetricians and gynaecologists based at the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin. We each have many years of experience in the Gynae area.
We see women coming back to us after childbirth dissatisfied with their degree of recovery in terms of their sex lives, vaginal laxity, mild degrees of incontinence and prolapse. This has a major affect on women’s self esteem and confidence. In addition, as the ageing process occurs coming up to and into menopause vaginal dryness and loss of muscle and skin tone become an issue further exacerbating the changes.
Up to now the treatment choices have been very limited. We are introducing a non surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure called Thermiva.
