Menopause

Menopause is the biological end of menstruation, caused when the ovaries stop synthesising and secreting hormones (oestrogen and progesterone).

This process begins between 45 and 55 years of age, and is accompanied by symptoms such as hot flushes, psychological changes and vaginal dryness.

Hormonal changes mean that pre- and post-menopausal women are the first concerned when it comes to vaginal dryness. It is important to clean intimate areas with a suitably mild cleanser, and not wash these areas more than twice per day.
