We are absolutely thrilled to announce that YES VM has been voted as the Community Choice Best Menopause Product 2018 by Live Better With Menopause! The final results were based upon the number of nominations from both the Live Better With Menopause Community, and the general public.
What Is Live Better With Menopause?
Live Better With Menopause is an online support community set up by women for women, to openly communicate and discuss their menopausal symptoms and experiences. With over 4,000 active members, the group is extremely beneficial for individuals seeking advice and relief from strenuous menopausal symptoms. Moreover, in a time where the term menopause is still considered taboo by a vast proportion of society, it is groups like LBWM that help to de-stigmatise subjects that would often be avoided and rarely discussed out of embarrassment.
YES and the Menopause
One of the most common, yet unspoken symptoms of the menopause is vaginal dryness. As the natural production of estrogen slows down during menopause, the same happens to the mucus producing cells that help to maintain the elasticity of the vagina. Consequently, the vaginal lining and tissues become both thinner and drier which can cause daily discomfort and make intercourse painful for many women.
YES VM is a clear and natural iso-osmotic vaginal moisturising gel. Formulated from food grade plant extracts and certified organic by The Soil Association, YES products are designed to be hypoallergenic and free from concerning chemicals. Some products can actually cause irritation which can be due to the pH of the formulation. YES VM is pH matched to the vaginal environment and hydrates intimate tissues, providing natural relief from unpleasant menopausal side-effects such as vaginal dryness and atrophy. YES VM is compatible with natural rubber latex and polyisoprene condoms.
If you are experiencing painful or uncomfortable sex as a result of the menopause, we recommend you try using the YES WB water-based lubricant or the YES OB plant-oil based lubricant. For maximum slipperiness to facilitate penetration, apply both simultaneously (YES WB on top of YES OB) – we call this the double glide effect!
