Painful sex after the menopause

It’s not just about painful sex

The symptoms of vaginal atrophy (VA) can have a significant effect on women’s quality of life, particularly in relation to painful sex after the menopause, with some women saying they feel ‘old’, ‘less sexy’ and ‘not themselves’. VA symptoms may also interfere with aspects of everyday life, including sleep, exercise, what you wear and general enjoyment of life.

This all gets wrapped up in our relationships, and emotional well-being and self-esteem for both women and their partners. It can be difficult to talk about, hard to address and create tension. But Gina relieves vaginal dryness to help make sex less uncomfortable.
