I have suffered with it for a number of years now. I was not sure to start with what was happening. I first started noticing it badly at work.I thought it was maybe an allergy to the toilet paper at work, and so I started wearing a towel and just giving myself a shake rather than wiping. But this did not seem to make any difference. Then I started to notice it during the week as well, so that ruled out it being the paper at work.
I work in a hot environment and am on my feet the whole shift, I can walk 12-14,000 steps in an average 6 hr shift. The itch was really beginning to get to me, it was driving me daft both day and night. When you have an itch in an intimate place you really cannot walk round scratching, and anyway scratching did not help. Some of the itch seemed internal as well as external.
Using the internet and reading through various sites it appears I was inflicted with vaginal dryness. Putting a label on things can help, but to be sure I went and spoke to my GP. Really did not get much help I have to say, she decided that HRT was not right for me at that time and suggested lubrication.
I tried a few different lubricants, these did not really help and had the drawback of being really messy. I even tried Vaseline, this was thicker and did help a bit more but still left me feeling uncomfortable when walking.
Then I was on a forum designed for older people, like myself and they were having a forum discussion on the very subject. So as well as reading what other people were suffering and how they were trying to cope I popped in a comment of my own. There was a chance on this forum to apply for a sample of Balance activ, which I did, well you have to try these things when you are inflicted.
Menopause Moisture Gel
I received my sample and have to honestly say within an hour of using a tube I was getting relief. The itching had stopped. I was pleasantly surprised and have to say I will be buying more of this for myself.
