How long does vaginal dryness last ?

Vaginal dryness varies in duration depending on the underlying cause and severity.

Symptoms of vaginal dryness usually appear within 12 months of the menopause. However, symptoms can take up to 3 years or more after the menopause to develop.

Unlike other symptoms of the menopause, such as hot flushes, that may resolve over time, Atrophic Vaginitis does not resolve spontaneously and can progressively worsen.

As about one-third of a woman’s life is after menopause its important to diagnose and treat any problems.
