Vaginal dryness? Low libido? Yikes!

In addition to the mood swings, hot flashes and weight gain, there’s other symptoms on your list that might be causing you worry these days.  Would you ever imagine that these topics would be anything you would need to consider?  But they are for many women.  And, it’s may embarrassing and hard to talk about.

These issues associated with a women’s nether regions can be one of the biggest concerns during  menopause.  Of course there are others to think about too with this area like vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, and inability to orgasm which are topics for another podcast/post.  Stay tuned!

During perimenopause, typically around your mid 40s things begin to transform as estrogen levels decrease.

As your menstrual cycle begins to shift which is a natural progression, your vaginal area goes through some changes.

Due to the change of hormones, as estrogen begins to leave your body, the tissue of your vaginal walls become thinner.  Along with this thinning, intercourse, as you might imagine, may be painful.
