Treatment for menopause

(Genitourinary syndrome of menopause)

Every woman must undergo menopause at a certain stage of her life. Millions of postmenopausal women suffer in silence. “Genitourinary syndrome of menopause” (GSM) is a new terminology that includes a combination of various menopausal symptoms and signs. GSM symptoms are currently being treated with the latest menopause treatment techniques. In this blog, we’ll go into more detail regarding treatment for menopause.

Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause(GSM):

The GSM entails postmenopausal changes in the lower urinary tract and vaginal atrophy. The loss of estrogen is the main factor causing urogenital atrophy. The most typical menopausal urogenital problems are

*Vaginal dryness

*Vaginal irritation and itching

* Dyspareunia (constant vaginal pain that starts just before, during, or after intercourse) and vaginal bleeding from fragile atrophic skin.

*Urinary infections, stress urinary incontinence, nocturia (a condition that causes you to wake up in the middle of the night to urinate), urine urgency and increased urinary frequency.

The symptoms are usually progressive and worsen with time from the period of the menopause transition.


Vaginal atrophy refers to the thinning, dryness, and inflammation of the vaginal walls. Usually, 4 to 5 years following the last period, the vaginal atrophy begins to thin and progressively increases in subsequent years. The main cause of almost all GSM symptoms is this vaginal atrophy which harms people’s quality of life.


*The main objective of treating GSM is to reduce the symptoms brought on by that period.* Treatments that are hormonal and non-hormonal can relieve these uncomfortable symptoms.

*Recently energy-based devices (LASER and RADIOFREQUENCY) play a dramatic role in vaginal rejuvenation and relief of the distressing symptoms of GSM. The treatment method must be developed according to the patient’s needs and risks, and it must be individualized.

*Before irreversible modifications take place, vaginal atrophy should be identified and treated early.

*Estrogen therapy is the type of treatment that is most frequently recommended. This estrogen improves symptoms by restoring the cytology, vascularity, and pH of the vagina.

*There are numerous estrogen formulations that can be used locally or systematically. Moisturisers and vaginal lubricants are also beneficial.

Early detection will result in positive outcomes.

Understanding GSM’s concept and how it impacts the quality of life is essential because it affects millions of women worldwide. When symptoms initially appear, the majority of postmenopausal women choose self-care techniques instead of visiting the doctor. Moreover, they think that all the changes and symptoms are part of the natural ageing process, which makes GSM an underdiagnosed and undertreated disorder.
