Atrophic Urethritis

Atrophic urethritis or Urogenital atrophy is a chronic and progressive condition due to estrogen deficiency, most commonly associated with menopause. It negatively impacts the urinary tract which may lead to thinning of the bladder and urethral linings and possibly cause chronic dysuria and an increased incidence of urinary tract infections.

Left untreated, it can affect the quality of life.
