Vaginal dryness is something that will happen to most women at some point in their life particularly around the menopause. However, many women are too embarrassed to talk about it and prefer to suffer in silence. This condition can often be very simple and easy to treat….often a good quality water-based lubricant that can be bought over the counter in most chemists is all that is needed. With women now set to spend over a quarter of their life post menopause, we need to encourage people to seek help as early as possible.
Over the years we have received numerous testimonials from women who had given up hope for a variety of reasons. You can read some of their stories by clicking the link below. You can also read the advice that Kathy Abernethy, Senior Menopause Nurse, gives to women suffering with vaginal dryness. Kathy works in a busy menopause clinic and regularly treats women with atrophic vaginitis (also known as vaginal dryness).
