Does every woman who enters and goes through menopause experience vaginal dryness? Or is this just a myth?

Vaginal dryness among menopausal women is not a myth. When you enter and go through menopause, you will experience a hormonal shift that causes an hormonal imbalance. Upon entering menopause, your progesterone (a female hormone) levels may drop, while your oestrogen (another female hormone) levels go up. You might want to take progesterone supplements to balance this shift. Sometimes, both your oestrogen and progesterone levels drop. With this erratic cycle—a drop in oestrogen levels being the frequent condition—less lubrication is produced. When your oestrogen levels are fluctuating, the vaginal walls become thinner, decreasing lubricant production from your mucus membranes resulting in vaginal dryness.

I’ve been having excessive vaginal discharge since I’ve entered menopause. Is this normal?

Excessive vaginal discharge is common among menopausal women because during these times, an hormonal imbalance occurs, making the vagina more prone to bacterial infections—a primary cause of discharge. Consult your gynaecologist if you are unsure.
