Answer

Hi, Donna,

I checked in Dr. Tara Allmen's companion booklet to her excellent "Menopause in an Hour" DVDs. She said what you are experiencing (vaginal dryness and atrophy) is a common menopause symptom. She suggested trying non-prescription solutions, such as vaginal moisturizers, water-soluble vaginal lubricans, vitamin E oil, and olive oil. She also encouraged engaging in regular sexual activity and/or vaginal stimulation in order to increase blood flow and maintain vaginal health. You also can talk to your doctor about prescription solutions such as local estrogen therapy.

Let us know what ends up working for you. Take care!

Dorian
