VA break the silence
60% of your post-menopausal patients may need your help – but are too embarrassed to ask
Helping your patients
Failure to find help, professional advice and treatment can have a major impact on women’s everyday comfort, confidence, intimate relationships and sex life. Vaginal atrophy is still very much a silent problem as many patients are too embarrassed to talk to their partners, friends and even doctors about their problems. Cultural embarrassment and perceptions that these symptoms are an unavoidable part of normal aging may hinder both patient and healthcare professional from initiating discussions about symptoms and treatment.
Healthcare professionals can help break this silence by encouraging their post-menopausal patients to talk openly about their health issues so professionals have the opportunity to provide support, advice and treatment information.
