It Can’t Be Menopause!…Can It?

I woke up one morning and I felt different.  I can’t quite explain it but I just felt that my body was changing. I was 43 years old. “This Can’t Be Menopause!…Can It?” I thought.

sadFrom the time I got my first period at age 12, I suffered the pain of menstruation.  The cramps were unbearable. The first two days of my period, every month, were spent  curled up in bed with a hot water bottle warming my stomach to help with the awful pain that I was experiencing.

I was told that when I had children the discomfort of stomach cramps would subside. But after my third child, they didn’t and to make matters worse I developed another problem called Endometriosis. For those of you who do not know this gynecological disorder that affects over 5 million women, it occurs when the endometrial lining (found inside the uterus) begins to grow on the outside of the uterus causing lesions to the ovaries, fallopian tubes and binds tissue to other organs in areas near the uterus.

Let’s Talk about Vaginal Dryness and Painful Sex

Finally! Women are talking about Vaginal Dryness and Painful Sex
In a recent article by Jane Brody “Persistence Is Key to Treating Vaginal Pain” in the New York Times, published on August 6, 2012, Ms. Brody explained that vaginal dryness most commonly occurs due to a loss of estrogen. This can be the result of menopause, cancer, and chemotherapy or even from breast-feeding.

Dr. Deborah Coady author of “Healing Painful Sex” urged women with dryness and sexual pain not to give up and to seek relief from this discomfort. But unfortunately she offered the less then adequate solution of using K-Y Jelly or Replens to help make sex more pleasurable. As well as the use of oils four times a day for dryness.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Vaginal Renewal Complex

Question: I have pelvic organ prolapse. Would your product, the Vaginal Renewal Complex®, help this?

Dr. Greene Answer: “Pelvic organ prolapse is an anatomical condition in which your uterus starts to drop down into your vaginal canal.

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) refers to protrusion of the pelvic organs into, or out of, the vaginal canal. It is the result of damage, both direct and indirect, to the vagina and its pelvic support system. Direct injuries include detachments and lacerations of the connective tissue support system or stretching and tearing of the levator ani muscles, most commonly as a result of vaginal delivery. Indirect injury includes hypoestrogenic atrophy and denervation. POP may involve the urethra, bladder, uterus, intestine and rectum.

There are many reasons why this occurs. Childbearing, weight, and genetics are some. While the condition can progress after menopause due to a lack of estrogen and the loss of elasticity and strength, neither the Vaginal Renewal Complex® nor the estrogen supplements will help..It might make the area less irritated but it won’t fix the prolapse.
Thanks for your question.” ~Dr. Greene
