Menopause and vaginal dryness: How YES can help!
Vaginal dryness is a common symptom of menopause and is experienced by millions of women around the world. Affecting over half of post-menopausal women aged between 51 and 60 (1).
Oestrogen is the main hormone that helps to maintain the vagina’s lubrication, elasticity, and thickness. The natural decline of oestrogen during menopause can cause vaginal dryness that can be sore, uncomfortable, and sometimes painful.
Vaginal dryness can occur at any time but is very common during perimenopause, menopause, and after menopause.
If you feel discomfort during sexual intercourse, feel itching, soreness or burning in or around your vagina, or feel you need to urinate more frequently, you may be experiencing symptoms of vaginal dryness.
There are many ways and remedies to treat menopause vaginal dryness which include using non-hormonal lubricants and moisturisers. All YES products are glycerine, paraben and hormone free.
For more severe vaginal dryness, usually referred to as vaginal atrophy, it may be necessary to talk to a GP about vaginal oestrogen products, only available on prescription.
