Vaginal ATROPHY, which is officially known as Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (G.S.M) is a common symptom of menopause affecting about 70% of women yet only 7% will ask for help from their GP, unfortunately many decide to self-treat, this is not recommended.
Firstly, your symptoms could be something else and secondly there are various different vaginal oestrogen and non-oestrogen products available on prescription that can really help to make you more comfortable and resume an intimate relationship, if desired.
We have added a new resource guide to dealing with the symptoms of this condition on the Resources area of this site.
Huge thanks to Jane Lewis author of ‘Me & My Menopausal Vagina’ for writing this for us, you can read more about Jane and her book at mymenopausalvagina.co.uk.
