Excessive Vaginal Sweating, Will ThermiVa help?

If you are experiencing excessive vaginal discharge that ThermiVa will likely worsen the issue by increasing lubrication. If is external sweat and dampness that is collecting in the groin region than ThermiVa will also not help. It is urinary leakage that you are experiencing, than further diagnostic testing needs to be done to determine the source/cause of the leakage. Best wishes.

ThermiVa and Sweating

ThermiVa will not help your excessive vaginal sweating. ThermiVa helps increase lubrication. So in your case, it could make your situation worse.  It would be best to visit with your doctor about other possible options for treatment.

ThermiVA is a useful treatment for a variety of issues, but excessive vaginal sweating is not something that it is likely to improve.  It tends to improve vaginal lubrication, so it might even make it worse.

Excessive Vaginal Sweating, Will ThermiVa help?

ThermiVa has been supported by claims that it increases lubrication. In that ThermiVa is not FDA approved for intra-vaginal use, and that these claims are not supported by any valid, peer reviewed studies that I can find, it is unlikely that ThermiVa will help with any vaginal issues in a lasting way.

Excessive Vaginal Sweating

Thanks for your question. ThermiVa actually helps treat vaginal dryness, so the treatment will create thicker and softer skin and add more moisture both internally and externally to improve daily life and sexual intercourse. This may not help with the sweating issue.

ThermiVa will shrink the tissues of the external and internal vaginal area.Although it is not intended to directly reduce sweating, the fact that the tissues are less bulky and less floppy may lead to a decrease in the surface area and a consequential reduction in sweating is possible.

ThermiVa on Leaking and Sweating

Moisture in the vulvar area can come from either sweating or urinary leakage.  For those individuals who have excessive amount of skin of the labia minora a labioplasty may be an alternative.  For those that have minor stress incontinence like with jumping rope or working out ThermiVa may be an option.  Increase vaginal moisture is a common outcome after the ThermiVa treatment.Consider consultation with your gynecologist or cosmetic surgeon to review the options that are best for you.

ThermiVa will not likely help for "vaginal sweating"

Are you speaking of excessive vaginal discharge? Or urinary leakage? Or perspiration on the outside of the mons and vulva area between the legs that can often feel wet from sweating? The internal vagina does not technically have apocrine glands to produce sweat.

ThermiVa inside the vagina will actually increase lubrication and secretions in women who are more dry, which is very common as we get older.

So this may not be the treatment that may help your symptoms.
