The menopause

The majority of women enter menopause when they are between 45 and 55 years of age. For several years prior to this, the body’s production of estrogen has decreased. The ovulations and menstruations cease and the woman can no longer become pregnant.

Some women, but not all, experience great discomfort during and after menopause. They may e.g. experience:

  • Hot flushes
  • Sleeping problems
  • Fluctuations/changes of mood
  • Lack of energy
  • Increase in weight
  • Vaginal atrophy

The vaginal mucous membrane becomes dry and sensitive. This is known as vaginal atrophy. Vaginal dryness, irritation and itching and pain during intercourse are among the common symptoms. The risk of acquiring vaginal and urinary infections is also increased.

Normally, a few years after menopause, many of the discomforting symptoms are reduced or may even disappear. Unfortunately, the problems with dry and sensitive vaginal mucous membranes often remain and worsen over the years.
