How can not having sex cause harm to your vagina?

Not having sex has the potential to cause vaginal atrophy. It is a common treatable condition that happens when the walls of the vagina begin to thin out due to lack of stimulation. This condition doesn't just affect women who do not get much sex, people going through menopause are also at risk since they have lower levels of estrogen. Also, anyone who is receiving treatment for breast cancer has a high chance of developing this condition.
