It is true that when a female reaches her menopause, she may be relieved of not having to deal with heavy menstrual flow and painful cycles but menopause too comes with its own problems and one of them is vaginal dryness.
Vaginal dryness is an absolutely normal occurrence in a woman’s life after menopause and results from the fact that the estrogen hormone count in the body goes down and is not enough to keep the vagina moist. This can also lead to painful intercourse and other issues. It is thus important to treat it at the right time.
It is important to visit your doctor and tell him/her about this problem. Infact, these days’ doctors too ask you about vaginal dryness as a part of routine medical and health checkups and when asked, you must be honest about it.
The doctor may either suggest a hormonal treatment or a non hormonal treatment which may bring back the advantages you had before reaching menopause. Do not shy away or hesitate to discuss this with your doctor as almost all the women experience dryness around the vaginal area. The treatment can either be in the form of tablets or topical creams.
