VAGINAL DRYNESS AND MENOPAUSE


As women approach the menopausal transition they can experience fluctuations in hormones for up to 10 years before their periods actually stop. During this time, known as the perimenopause, women may start to notice symptoms of hormonal imbalances which are often just put down to the ageing process rather than menopause as they are still having periods.


Most people are aware that the menopause brings with it symptoms such as hot flushes and mood swings but some of the other symptoms that women can suffer with are less known.

When oestrogen declines, the lining of the vagina becomes thinner and less stretchy. The vaginal canal can also narrow and shorten. Less oestrogen lowers the amount of normal vaginal fluids and changes the acid balance of the vagina. The first sign of vaginal atrophy is usually a decrease in vaginal lubrication (vaginal dryness). There can also be changes in the microbiome of the vagina.


During a Kinesiology session we take 360degree approach to supporting hormones, including dietary, lifestyle and supplements among others.


Supplement supports that would be considered are supportive herbs such as sage, red clover and the minerals and vitamins of magnesium, B Vitamins and Vitamin C.
