Get Rid of Vaginal & Sexual Pain!

Millions of women experience vaginal discomfort, and sometimes crippling pain, for a variety of reasons, most often a loss of estrogen. The resulting vaginal dryness and atrophy can make sexual intercourse, a pelvic exam, urinating, or even sitting, or walking a painful nightmare.

In addition to women near or past menopause, those affected include women who have recently given birth or are breast-feeding, women treated with estrogen-suppressing drugs for breast cancer or given chemotherapy or pelvic radiation for other cancers, and women whose ovaries were surgically removed.

Don't be Embarrassed from Urinary Incontinence!

Women who experience leakage from their bladders or have the “got to go” feeling at inconvenient times are not alone. The problem, though embarrassing for some, is more common – and treatable – than many women realize.

A recent research study, which analyzed nine years of data from 3,000 women ages 42-64, found that 68 percent of this group experienced the problem at least once a month. In fact, more Americans suffer from urinary incontinence than from diabetes and hypertension.
