Menopause
After the menopause many women experience changes to their vagina and genital area; this change is known as Atrophic Vaginitis. The symptoms may include dryness, discomfort during sex and urinary symptoms. These can usually be eased with treatment. Treatment options include: hormone replacement therapy (HRT), oestrogen cream or pessaries, and lubricating gels.

Lubricating Gels
If vaginal dryness is the only problem, or hormone creams are not recommended because of other medical problems, lubricating gels may help. There are various gels which are specifically designed to help the problem of vaginal dryness by replacing moisture (for example, ReplensĀ®). You can buy these from the pharmacy and your pharmacist can advise.
