http://fabulously40.com/images/nonono.gifAttention all vagina owners!


On November 10, 2015, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is holding a workshop in Silver Spring, Maryland on the subject of the product labeling of lower-dose vaginal estrogen. This workshop will also provide public comments and testimonials on this subject.


I am happy to hear that The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) is spearheading the need for the box labeling for low dose vaginal estrogen to be changed. Right now the box labeling overstates the potential risks, and frankly it inhibits many doctors from prescribing this treatment. When women read the box label they are scared half to death to use this very successful treatment option.


Lower dose vaginal estrogen, commonly referred to as LET (local estrogen therapy) is used for women who are experiencing the following symptoms:


  • Vaginal dryness

  • Vaginal burning

  • Vaginal discharge

  • Genital itching

  • Burning with urination

  • Urgency with urination

  • More urinary tract infections

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Light bleeding after intercourse

  • Discomfort with intercourse

  • Decreased vaginal lubrication during sexual activity

  • Shortening and tightening of the vaginal canal


 The medical community has many names for this condition: dyspareunia, vulvar and vaginal atrophy or Genitourinary (Don't worry, I can't pronounce that either.) Syndrome of Menopause. For our purposes, let's call it dry vagina!


Dry vagina occurs when there's a drop in levels of estrogens, produced by the ovaries. Estrogens maintain the structure and function of the vaginal wall, the elasticity of the tissues around the vagina, and production of vaginal fluid. When it comes to the vagina, thin is out!


As if graying hair, sagging tatas and expanding waists weren't enough, we now find out that our vaginas are aging too! If you feel you're left high and dry, you're not alone. Vaginal dryness affects as many as 75 percent of postmenopausal women. Between 17 and 45 percent of postmenopausal women say they find sex painful, according to[Link Removed]. Deadline for signatures is November 10th!


It's been about 10 years since my vagina was found stranded on a desert island and took my sex drive with it! Since rescuing it, my life is full, happy and satisfied. Remember: Your symptoms are treatable. You can have a happy vagina again!
