FAQ on menopause

Does every woman who enters and goes through menopause experience vaginal dryness? Or is this just a myth?

Vaginal dryness among menopausal women is not a myth. When you enter and go through menopause, you will experience a hormonal shift that causes hormonal imbalance. Upon transitioning to menopause, your progesterone (a female hormone) levels may drop, while your estrogen (another female hormone) levels go up. With this, you might take progesterone supplements to balance this shift. Sometimes, both your estrogen and progesterone levels drop. With this erratic cycle—a drop in estrogen levels being the frequent circumstance—less lubrication is produced. When your estrogen levels are fluctuating, the vaginal walls become thinner, decreasing lubricant production from your mucus membranes resulting to vaginal dryness.

Take the time to get to the bottom of your vaginal dryness. It will allow you much more room for personal growth, comfort and a fulfilling life.

 

I’ve been having excessive vaginal discharges ever since I’ve entered menopause. Is this normal?

“Normal” wouldn’t be the word for it since an occurrence like this means an infection is present. Excessive vaginal discharge is “common” among menopausal women because during these times, hormonal imbalance takes place, making the vagina more prone to bacterial infections—a primary cause of discharge. But a cure is always available for vaginal infections, whether you’re menopausal or not. Visit your gynecologist and ask what you should do to deal with vaginal problems. And don’t forget to use the right kind of feminine wash to aid in keeping your vagina well-moisturized and healthy.
