Sometimes in clinic the management of more common menopausal symptoms like hot flushes, mood disorders, weight gain, and fatigue take precedence, whilst vaginal symptoms are not considered or questioned about.

What are the vaginal health questions in menopause you should be asking?
Even asking the questions can seem daunting, but you owe it to your clients to ask about their vaginal symptoms.

In menopause, the changes that occur in the vaginal and genital area can be painful, relentless and a serious disruptor to how people show up in their lives.

The presentations of vaginal atrophy, atrophic vaginitis and desquamative inflammatory vaginitis all have links to vaginal microbial health and the decline in oestrogen.

Do you have strategies to question, support and address these issues?
This 60 minute webinar will explore the microbial influences on menopausal vaginal symptoms, explore the microbiome in transition and discuss strategies to support menopausal genitourinary symptoms.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Recognise and question the common vaginal presentations of menopause
  • Understand the standard pharmaceutical management strategies
  • Effective herbal and nutritional approaches for menopausal issues
  • Identify resources and products for your menopausal client to support them and ease their discomfort
