Monday, the FDA issued a statement warning that some of the "vaginal rejuvenation" treatments on the market can come with unsafe side effects, like vaginal burns, scarring, and pain.

Gottlieb is concerned that these procedures are aimed at women who had cancer treatment that caused early menopause, a fact he considers to be egregious and, adding that the manufacturers use "deceptive marketing of a risky procedure with no proven benefit".
