What to Expect from Vaginal Atrophy Treatment

Before we can begin treatment, we will first need to discuss your pelvic health history, including any pregnancies, infections, or trauma. We’ll also ask that you consult with your GP, as a urine sample or swabs may be required. 

We may also want to conduct a pelvic floor examination. For this, we will ask you to undress from the waist down. We will provide you with a cover, and a chaperone if necessary. This examination will usually be performed laying down, but we may also need to assess your pelvic floor condition standing, or during movement. 

After this initial assessment, you  will leave with a plan of treatment, which we will have discussed with you, as well as at-home treatments and exercises, and any lifestyle modifications, where appropriate.

Emily Elgar

Emily is our Pelvic Health Clinical Specialist and Clinical Lead. She has over 10 years’ experience working in Pelvic Health (Obstetrics and Gynaecology), across a range of settings from a large teaching hospital, to remote community clinics. 

Emily has been with the Katie Bell team right from the start, and has since expanded her skills to include acupuncture, myofascial release, and professional coaching alongside classical pelvic health skills which reflects her combined approach to physiotherapy.

“I love not only helping women find the practical solutions to their pelvic and obstetric health challenges, but also helping them find their unique recipe for wellness. So often in clinic I hear that patients didn’t realise there was so much they could do to impact their symptoms. When a women comes in having taken control of their health they change in everyway. I love when she tells you about how she is physically better and feels it, but then talks about all the ways she understands her body more. There’s a lot of power in that, not just the one fix but embracing your health for life.”
