In the peri-menopause/menopause, oestrogen levels fluctuate and start to decline. This can cause a wide variety of symptoms that vary in severity between women.
A very common symptom is vaginal dryness. This can be very debilitating and distressing and can have a negative impact on relationships, daily activities and overall quality of life. Unfortunately, this is not something that is frequently discussed and, as a result, is underdiagnosed and undertreated.
