Menopause and vaginal dryness: How YES can help!

Menopause and vaginal dryness: How YES can help!

Millions of women around the world experience vaginal dryness, which is a common symptom of menopause. Over half of post-menopausal women aged between 51 and 60 are affected by it (1). Oestrogen is the hormone that helps maintain the lubrication, elasticity, and thickness of the vagina. The natural decline of oestrogen during menopause can cause vaginal dryness, which can be painful, uncomfortable, and sore.

Vaginal dryness can happen at any time, but it is very common during perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause. If you experience discomfort during sexual intercourse, itching, soreness, burning in or around your vagina, or frequent urination, you may be experiencing symptoms of vaginal dryness.

Fortunately, there are many ways and remedies to treat menopause vaginal dryness, including using non-hormonal lubricants and moisturisers. All YES products are glycerine, paraben, and hormone-free.

For more severe cases of vaginal dryness, which is usually referred to as vaginal atrophy, it may be necessary to talk to a GP about vaginal oestrogen products, which are only available on prescription.

YES vaginal moisturisers

During menopause, the decline in oestrogen levels can cause vaginal tissue to become dry, leading to discomfort, burning, and pain that can affect sexual activity and everyday life. Vaginal examinations or cervical screening (smear test) may also become intensely uncomfortable. For some women, this is the first time they discover that they are experiencing vaginal dryness.

To help alleviate these symptoms, YES VM is a long-lasting vaginal moisturizing gel that replicates the natural vaginal environment. It is designed to provide gentle and soothing hydration to the vagina as a part of a self-care routine.
