There have been so many threads from women suffering with problems "down below", pain, discomfort, knicker problems, painful intercourse, dryness etc. who have never heard of Vaginal atrophy.
Until my GP mentioned it, it was something I had never heard of. I put up with months of discomfort and irritation and UTI symptoms before getting treatment. I now use a vaginal moisturiser daily and have not been troubled with UTIs or irritation for years.
As we get older, internal tissues dry up and just like our external skin needs some moisturising. I personally use Replens but I know there are many other similar products which can be bought over the counter. Your GP may also prescribe some hormone cream if needed.
Just hope this information might save someone going through all the problems I had just because I had never heard of vaginal atrophy and had no idea so many women suffered from it.
