Unfortunately the often late presentation of this condition means that the changes in the vagina and bladder are more advanced by this stage and thus more difficult to reverse. Like with everything, prevention is better and easier than cure!

If we can educate women about the genitourinary syndrome of the menopause- why it occurs, when it occurs, the symptoms and how to manage them, then many women will have a much more comfortable vagina and bladder 10 years+ down the line from their menopause.
